How Long to Beat Skull and Bones?

Skull and Bones has a lot of content on offer and will take a long time to beat, so long as you’re interested in the grind.

Skull and Bones is a live service game, so naturally, players can expect a wealth of content over time. However, at launch, it’s perhaps a little leaner than some may have hoped. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to see and do, especially for fans of fetch quests. Below, we explain just how much time players can expect to sink into Ubisoft’s latest pirate adventure.

How Long Is Skull and Bones?

It will take players 20 hours to beat Skull and Bones’ main story missions. To beat all of the side content, including side contracts, it will take 40 hours. However, to complete absolutely everything the game has to offer, it will take you 70 hours. This includes unlocking all of the available ships and weapons, completing every treasure map mission, and reaching the max infamy rank of Kingpin.

Of course, Skull and Bones is a live-service game. As such, players can expect content to be added over at least the next year, which will add significantly more time to the overall runtime. After the year 1 roadmap content has been added, players can expect to spend 100 hours, if not more, getting through all of the content it has to offer.

However, for right now, once you’ve completed the main story contract missions, there’s not a lot to do. There is some endgame content, including PvP missions and more. Nevertheless, if you’re only interested in the story of Skull and Bones, you likely won’t be sticking around for long. That’s everything you need to know about how long it takes to beat Skull and Bones. For more guides just like this one, be sure to check out our Guide Hub.

Editor in Chief
  1. Skull and Bones is a prime example of everything wrong with the gaming industry today. AAAA? No, but maybe a free mobile game in early access.

  2. AAAA game with 20 hours of story and 70 hours overall? No ship boarding? 30 dollar game at best. Ubisoft better learn to get used to noone buying their games or wanting to own them.
