Skull and Bones is finally releasing on Feb. 16 after years of delays, and you can pre-order two different editions of the game.
The first edition is the Standard Edition for $60, which comes with the base game along with some pre-order bonuses if you decide to purchase early. Then, there’s the Premium Edition for $90, which has several other bonuses including the same pre-order rewards you get from the Standard Edition. If you want to see exactly what your money is buying when you pre-order either edition of Skull and Bones, check out the guide below.
Skull and Bones editions and pre-order bonuses
The Standard Edition of Skull and Bones only comes with one pre-order bonus, being the Highness of the High Sea Pack. You can see what the Highness of the High Sea Pack comes with along with every pre-order bonus in Skull and Bones:
- Highness of the High Sea Pack – Notoriety Garb, Coronation Firework (Any Edition)
- 3 days early access (Premium Edition)
- Premium Bonus Pack – Ballad of Bloody Bones Collection (includes Bloody Bones Captain Outfit and Ashen Corsair Ship Set) (Premium Edition)
- 2 extra missions (Premium Edition)
- Digital art book and game soundtrack (Premium Edition)
- Smuggler Pass Token – Can be used to unlock a season’s premium Battle Pass (Premium Edition)
Those are all of the pre-order bonuses for Skull and Bones. You can choose to pre-order on Ubisoft Connect or Epic Games Store if you’re on PC while console players can pre-order from their system’s marketplace.
If you want the Premium Edition of Skull and Bones for cheap, you can also subscribe to Ubisoft+, a subscription service that grants you access to a library of over 100 titles (mostly Ubisoft games). Ubisoft+ costs $17.99 per month and grants you immediate access to the Premium Edition of Skull and Bones, which also means you get three days of early access starting on Feb. 13. It’s a solid deal if you plan on playing a lot of Skull and Bones, but perhaps not for someone on the fence with the game.

Of course, you can always cancel your subscription after one month if you don’t like Skull and Bones and it won’t cost you nearly as much as buying the game outright.
