We’ve had to wait some time for Ubisoft’s newest pirate adventure, Skull and Bones, to enter the fray. As you’ll be sailing the high seas, you’re likely wondering if you’re be able to invite others to play. Here, we’ll take you through if Skull and Bones is co-op or if you’re able to play with friends at all.

It’s time for Skull and Bones to set sail. Ubisoft’s online pirate game is on the brink of launch, as players are excited to tune in to experience the call of the sea on their ship.

With a large number of players already taking part in the open beta, many have wondered about the multiplayer aspect of Skull and Bones and if co-op is actually possible in the title.

Here’s whether co-op is possible in Skull and Bones.

Does Skull and Bones have co-op?

Skull and Bones is a multiplayer title that has both co-op and PvP in it. As mentioned earlier, it is an online game that will remain up for all the players at the same time. This means players would be able to encounter others in the game and form parties with them to go on an adventure together.
