Ubisoft always have a habit of ending their press conferences with a game that makes you say “want”. The question therefore is would they achieve that again, or would some now be jaded by the couple of disappointments over the last couple of years?
Please note, this article will be updated continually with any relevant information as it becomes available.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Well, they certainly started off memorably by jumping in and revealing a new South Park game. Pre-orders are open but no release date was revealed.
Ubisoft’s go-to presneter was again Aisha Tyler and she and the South Park creators uncomfortably spoke about the mics and being in a bedroom. Of course, games were the important thing on the agenda, and what followed was another pleasant surprise.
This unexpected title is a 4v4 multiplayer medieval action game which pits sword wielding combatants against both human and AI enemies. Combat is brutal melee action, and looks like it may turn into a bit of a hit.
The Crew: Wild Run
The Crew is getting an expansion on 17 November, which adds four new vehicle types: monster trucks, motorcycles, dragsters and drift cars.
Trials Fusion: Awesome Level Max
Another vehicular game gets an expansion. This one arrives 14 July and features cats riding unicorns. Er. Yeah. That is correct.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is still looking fantastic and the latest gameplay footage asks some question about morality in the Dark Zones.
A release date of 8 March 2016 has been confirmed and the game will be preceded by a beta on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Look, if it’s your sort of thing, Just Dance 2016 will not require a camera to play. And if it’s your sort of thing, the game will be out this October. It will work on Xbox One, PS4 and WiiU with the Just Dance Controller App.
Rainbow Six Siege
Angela Bassett will feature in the new addition to the Rainbow Six franchise, as will the return of Terrorist Hunt. A yay for good things coming back. A beta for the game will kick off on 24 September.
Trackmania is making a comeback and will feature on consoles for the first time. The game will release for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 26 November, with over 200 tracks, a campaign mode, track builder and more.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
What would an Ubisoft E3 press conference be without some Assassin’s Creed then? Well, maybe a little less predictable at least.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
And as promised, Ubisoft ended with a bang. Ghost Recon is back as an open world, co-operative shooter. A little like The Division maybe, but first impressions were very good.
If you’re keen to relive (or watch it for the first time) the entire Ubisoft press conference, then here you go.
