The other day we explained why Skull and Bones was not going to be free, as the CEO of Ubisoft himself answered the question at a shareholders’ meeting. A game that has cost so much money to develop has to be paid for, he justified.

If you’re curious to try the game, but the full price (on console we’re talking about 69 euros) puts you off, we have good news: there is a free eight-hour trial version available, so you can see what it’s about without paying a penny.

The CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, recently defended the price, describing Skull and Bones as a “quadruple A game” and stating that “people will truly see how vast and complete the game is” once they play it. And of course, this trial is for those who are hesitant to pay upfront without trying it first.

A perfect free trial for the undecided

The challenge, of course, is to convince players to take that first step: 70 euros is a lot of money to satisfy curiosity, after all, especially considering that the reception of the pre-launch open beta was not very good.

This is where the trial version comes into play. Go to the store of your choice (Epic Games Store or Ubisoft for PC) and select the free trial version of the game.

You will have eight hours to wander at your leisure, which, according to my experience with the game (I have about 15 hours right now), is enough to at least get a taste of the town of Sainte Anne after the tutorial, and any progress you make in the trial version will carry over to the full game if you decide to purchase it.

The launch of Skull and Bones seems to be going reasonably well so far, at least in the sense that nothing seems to have exploded, metaphorically speaking. Ubisoft has already addressed some issues, such as contract completion requirements, resource regeneration time, and some server problems, and they are working on it.

While we will have a review soon, we can already tell you at this point that Skull and Bones is a much more fun and complete game than we all expected. Although it is far from perfect.
