Praise Poseidon, they've gone and done it. It's been four years since the best Assassin's Creed, Black Flag, gave us a taste of the pirate's life. Ubisoft's finally taken that potential and spun it out of the Assassin's Creed universe in a new game called Skull and Bones.

Ubisoft first showed off Skull and Bones with a cinematic trailer at its press conference, but the video above is a longer look at the game, which describes it as a multiplayer, open world pirate game.

Here's the trailer description: 

“It is the Golden Age of Piracy. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth: warships. You are a pirate captain who has refused the king’s pardon and sailed from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, an untamed frontier full of lavish riches. However, these waters are also a battleground where far-reaching colonial empires, powerful trading corporations, and ruthless pirate gangs clash. In order to survive, you will have to build a lethal fleet, prey upon lucrative trade routes, and ally with other pirates in your endless struggle for supremacy.”

"We're not making Black Flag 2.0, we're making our own game, but we really went to school on what we've done in the past," says an Ubisoft developer. You'll collect different types of ships that fill "traditional RPG archetypes," like a long-range, weakly armored ship and a heavy gun-toting frigate. Navigating with the wind is a key tactical element.

The game isn't all PvP, and sounds a bit like The Division in its open world design and challenges built around co-op play with your friends. Ubisoft talked just a bit about being able to develop your own gang with, naturally, your own pirate emblem.

...SNIP...

Really hope this game will be good. I loved the pirate part of Black Flag.
