Former NFL Star Takes on Pirates in “Skull & Bones” Game
Marshawn Lynch, known for his powerful runs on the football field, was recently spotted in familiar black and silver gear. However, this time it was not in the context of a game but in the virtual world of the action-adventure game “Skull & Bones” by Ubisoft.
A Pirate’s Quest
In “Skull & Bones,” players embark on a journey to dominate the Indian Ocean as fearsome pirates. Lynch, locked in and fully engaged, was seen taking down opponents with the same intensity he displayed during his career with the Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks, and Oakland Raiders.
While fans eagerly lined up outside for a chance to catch a glimpse of the legendary “Beast Mode,” it became evident that Lynch was more interested in escaping reality than reliving his on-field accomplishments. When asked about his gaming experience, Lynch sheepishly replied, “No, I wouldn’t say that… they actually came and did some engagement with us.” Meanwhile, NFL fans snapped pictures and looked on, hoping to catch a glimpse of the gaming superstar.
For Lynch, video games serve as a means to free the mind and find relaxation. “I play, I never played anything like this one before. This one captured my mind,” he explained. The former running back revealed his interest in pirates was sparked by watching the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. However, he made it clear that he would never set foot on an actual ship, except for the time he walked onto the vessel at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
A Fun Escape
It was evident that Lynch was thoroughly enjoying himself, as he shouted expletives of excitement after successfully taking out an enemy ship in the game. The former NFL star spent 12 seasons in the league, earning five Pro Bowl selections, a Super Bowl title with the Seahawks, and a spot on the All-2010s Hall of Fame team.
