When does Skull and Bones Season 1 start?

Expect more content in Skull and Bones very soon, as the start of Season 1 and new adventures to be had are looming.

Skull and Bones is here for all of you swashbuckling would-be pirates. With Ubisoft's announcement of a Year 1 Roadmap and seasonal content, you might be surprised to enter the game without a season to be found. Don't worry, Skull and Bones is prepping for Season 1 and it will start soon.

When is Skull and Bones Season 1?

With much of the game's content coming after you reach the Infamy Rank of Kingpin, it seems like Ubisoft is giving players plenty of time to catch up. Many Early Access users are there, and now standard edition pirates have their chance at ruling the Indian Ocean.

It makes sense that Season 1 comes shortly after launch. In fact, a lot of game's these days have a Season Zero, which allows you to get familiar with the title before things kick into full gear. That's exactly what Skull and Bones is doing with a delayed Season 1 start.

If you view your Helm Empire Overview in the Helm office, there is a countdown on your Upgrades. Ubisoft has confirmed upgrades will not reset on that day, and that it is also not the official start of Season 1 of Skull and Bones.

The beginning of Season 1 is February 27. This was revealed in a Ubisoft developer live stream. They gave tons of details regarding Skull and Bones Season 1, including a look at the Smuggler's Pass, and firm release date for the content that's on its way.

So, now that we know when Skull and Bones Season 1 starts. How about when it ends? Another countdown in the game shows a timer of 94 days. Seasonal Reset is the label next to this countdown.

The leaderboard resets, upgrades revert, and rewards are dished out. It looks like Skull and Bones Season 1 is rather lengthy, allegedly ending on May 20, 2024 if the countdown is to be believed.
