Ubisoft was the third company to have its annual E3 press conference and they didn’t disappoint. Showing off a lot of things we knew about, the french company also had a few surprises.
Opening the show was South Park: The Fractured but Whole. A sequel to 2014’s incredible The Stick of Truth, Fractured but Whole takes the gang on a heroic adventure. The game is due out sometime in 2016. Following that, Ubisoft showed off The Crew as well as a little bit of Trackmania: Turbo.
Another blockbuster game, The Division was demoed during the show as well. Focusing on a “dark zone,” the demo showed off the multiplayer functionality you can expect when the title launches on March 8, 2016. There’s a public beta coming at the beginning of 2016 as well. Another multiplayer game, Rainbow Six: Siege was shown as well. The game is bringing acting powerhouse, Angela Bassett into the fray as “Six.” The demo showed off the new “Terrorhunt” mode. Siege is available this October 13th.
We also got to see the new Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate … although all we got was another CGI trailer. For Honor is a new IP Ubisoft unveiled that will take medieval multiplayer 5v5 combat to the next level. The game looks great and has a unique control mechanic. You’ll use the right analog stick to control your swing. (Think Metal Gear Rising).
We also got to see Anno 2205 and Just Dance 2016. Rounding out the show was another surprise announcement. The Ghost Recon series is back with Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The demo was interesting and showed the multiple ways you can tackle a mission. You can watch the trailer below.
