ABOUT Skull and Bones: It is the Golden Age of Piracy. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth: warships.

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.
