During Ubisoft's E3 2017 press conference, it unveiled a new online multiplayer pirate game called Skull and Bones. Players will be able to play alone or with friends as they sail the high seas and plunder each other's ships for booty.

If that sounds familiar, you're probably thinking of Xbox's Sea of Thieves, which looks like it's tackling a similar idea, but in a much cartoonier, lighthearted way.

Ubisoft said Skull and Bones will be available sometime in 2018, but there's a form on its website where you can sign up for beta access right now.
