Skull And Bones Is Seemingly One Step Closer To Actually Releasing With ESRB Rating Description

Ubisoft’s long-in-development pirate game Skull And Bones is getting closer to launch, and now it’s been rated for release in multiple territories, suggesting that the game will soon see the light of day.

South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee has posted a rating for Skull And Bones, as discovered by @the_marmolade on Twitter (via VGC). The rating doesn’t reveal anything new about Skull & Bones, but it does pave the way for the game to be released. The ESRB database now shows a rating for Skull And Bones as well, along with a description about its M-for-Mature rating.

Skull And Bones ESRB Rating Summary

“This is a naval-combat action game in which players assume the role of a shipwrecked outcast on a journey to become a pirate captain. As players take on missions, they can explore settlements and engage in dramatic sea battles. From a first-person perspective, players command their crew to shoot cannons at rivals (e.g., warships, merchant ships, settlements/forts) in attempts to obtain loot/goods. Enemy ships can be rammed and boarded, resulting in brief cutscenes of crew members shooting or slashing at each other. Combat is highlighted by gunfire/cannon fire, explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Some territories depict corpses impaled on spikes or hanging from nooses; beaches may depict corpses and large bloodstains in the aftermath of battle. Settlements occasionally contain brothels and prostitutes that call out to players when approached (e.g., “Come spend your coin all over me”; “The price of my a*se goes up tomorrow, so buy a piece today!”). Players can also engage in quests to bring poppies to opium dens, which are depicted with patrons lying on couches smoking pipes. The words “f**k” and “sh*te” appear in the dialogue.”
