Many expected Skull and Bones to be a game more like Sea of Thieves. And those same many consider Sea of Thieves to be the premier pirate game of modern times. If you're fan of one, you should definitely try the other.

Skull and Bones has its fantastical elements, but it is more rooted in reality. Sea of Thieves is a bit cartoony and employs much more person-to-person combat. They're very opposite in terms of delivery, but both are necessary pieces of the pirate games catalog.

Without Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, there would be no Skull and Bones. The game started as a spinoff of the AC title, meant to be a massive multiplayer game. From there, it hit development hell until we have the product we know today.

So, why not play one of the top pirate games of all time that gave us the game we're comparing it to? Not only are you a pirate, but you're a pirate assassin. It has everything you want from a stealthy AC game, mixed with a pirating adventure that is unmatched to this day.
