Skull and Bones free trial: how to play free for a limited time

How to get a Skull and Bones free trial to play the game for a limited time

Skull and Bones is a big game, and it carries a big price tag, so it’s understandable if you don’t want to dive right in committing your time and money to it. Thankfully, Ubisoft agrees and has set up a way that you can play for free for a limited time, letting you see if it’s really the pirate’s life for you.

We’ll explain how to get yourself a free trial for Skull and Bones to test the game out.

Whether you’re on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, or PC, head over to the Skull and Bones store page (both Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store work on PC), and among the many options for editions of the game you can buy, there will be a free trial option.

Selecting this and downloading the game will give you eight hours of playtime doing whatever you want in Skull and Bones, which is enough time to see a lot of the early-game content, and a smattering of mid-game stuff too if you know where to look.

Much like with the recent open beta, any progress you make during this free trial will be carried over if you decide to purchase the full game, so you don’t have to worry about repeating any content.
