Ubisoft has announced the launch of “Waves of Change,” a “Skull and Bones” in-game charity event, which running through March 31. When “Skull and Bones” players defeat in-game enemies, Ubisoft will make donations on their behalf to support the preservation of underwater ecosystems. Ubisoft’s goal is to raise €300,000 in donations by the end of the event. Released in February, “Skull and Bones” is a co-op pirate open-world action RPG that allows players to embark on a journey across the Indian Ocean to fulfill their pirate fantasy.

Ubisoft is partnering with Oceana, the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation, to protect and restore our oceans by leading strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes. Oceana leverages law, science, grassroots activism, advocacy and strategic communications to contribute to policy change around the world.

For a two-week period, all players, including those currently on the free trial, will automatically join this event, facing off against Skirmishers, Headhunters and the notorious pirate lord, Philippe La Peste. Ubisoft will contribute to Oceana based on the number of defeats inflicted upon these adversaries. The daily progress toward the donation target will be monitored and displayed on a dedicated webpage, allowing players to track their contributions. Participants will also earn in-game rewards – the Pioneer set – as a token of appreciation for their involvement.
