Skull and Bones is indeed an open-world title developed by Ubisoft Singapore and despite not having a campaign, the game does have bits of story elements sprinkled throughout the world.

The game puts the players in the driving seat, allowing them to craft their own stories, and is a shared-world game, allowing a maximum of 20 players on every server.

Skull and Bones Map Size

For those who love big open-world maps, then Skull and Bones won't disappoint. In terms of size, the game world is even bigger than that of Valhalla, according to game director Ryan Barnard himself. While speaking to GameRant about the map size Barnard said, "Valhalla, a great big open world Assassins game, is 95 square kilometers of gameplay space. At launch, we are 625 square kilometers.”

That's quite a big map, and Barnard even dives deeper as to why the developers choose to go with this. He said, "now, of course, we're a vehicle game. It's a ship game. So you need a bigger space to be able to accommodate. We’re also a multiplayer first game, so we want players to pirate up and group up with other players. And you need a good amount of space for that to make sense for gameplay, right. But there's a huge world for you to explore and to discover the different factions, the two different dens which are kind of our two pirate villages that you'll discover through your progression of the game.”
