Skull and Bones: Which Edition to Buy? Standard vs Premium

Skull and Bones, developed by Ubisoft, is set to release in February 2024. This long-anticipated title has the gaming community on its feet, often described as the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag sequel. With good reason too.

Set in the golden age of piracy, you can craft your ships, fight mighty battles, and loot epic booty to advance further in the game. The game itself doesn’t lack content, that’s for sure and players will have ample opportunities to try it out themselves once the game launches.

Do note that the game will not be available on Steam. For now, it is reserved for Ubisoft’s platform Uplay and the Epic Games Store.

Due to its growing popularity, players wonder, if the premium edition is worth the extra coin. Today, we’ll talk about this in more detail. Dive in as we explore the differences between the standard and the premium editions of Skull and Bones!

Pre-order Bonus

As is the case with most new titles, pre-ordering the game will give you certain advantages and bonus items in the game. When it comes to Skull and Bones, pre-ordering the game gets you the so-called Highness of the High Sea Pack.

Within, you will get the Notoriety Garb skin and the Coronation Firework for your ship. Compared to many other games, this bonus provides little to no incentive for players to purchase it as its cost is simply not worth it.

Standard Edition

The standard edition of the game, priced at 59,99 Euros is well…the base game. This is professional gaming journalism at its finest

All jokes aside, the standard edition is for players who wish to enjoy the base game without any extra content and cost. At its core, it certainly is enough and while it may have fewer missions, it still is a unique pirating experience set to take up countless hours of your free time.
