The Ubisoft conference for E3 2019 opened with one of the most beautiful performances I have seen in years. The orchestra played music from across the Assassins Creed franchise while clips from each were shown playing in the background. The whole performance was truly breath taking and must have been amazing to experience in person. The Assassins Creed Symphony are even going on a world wide tour starting June 29th. While they did not announce a lot, what they did announce was well thought out and never felt like we weren’t given enough information. In case you missed any of the trailers we have them all down below!
Watch Dogs: Legion
Grandma’s kicking some sweet tush. I don’t know what more you could want?! Watch Dogs: Legion is giving us everything we have wanted. The game play looks smooth and promises to give players a fantastic experience as they navigate their way through a London that has really taken on the big brother mentality. It will be the players task to find new recruits from every single Londoner found within the game. They are all unique in their own way and the game changes around who you chose. However be careful because it looks like if your character dies in game, they won’t be coming back.
The trailer for the next expansion of Rainbow Six Siege showed off two new operators being added into the game. The warden is is featured in this trailer, being seen as a defensive specialist who comes brings his team to victory in the end. With his special tech he is able to stealth up behind enemy attackers and dispose of them quickly. The other operator joining the fight is Nokk, a hoodie attacker who can hide her presence.
Rainbow Six Siege update Phantom Sight releases June 11, 2019.
Are you a fan of Brawlhalla? Are you also a fan of Adventure Time? Then this is going to be right up your alley! Finn, Jake, and Princess Bubblegum are joining the champions within the battle brawl. As a fan of Adventure Time this is one of the best collabs I have seen during E3. We are also seeing a new mode within the game called Buddy. It looks to be a team based type mode. This would explain the combo abilities that can be seen between the Adventure Time crew.
The Adventure Time and Brawlhalla crossover is out now for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
We learned today during the Ubisoft conference that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is getting a crossover with the Terminator himself. Actor Jon Bernthal shared with us his new character Cole Walker, the villain who is ready to set his men or rather rabid pack of wolves on you. We also learned that they are adding back in AI companions for single players.
The beta test for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint opens on September 5, 2019 and will release for all on October 4, 2019 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad
We are getting a dream team that pulls from several different Tom Clancy franchises in the new mobile game, Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad. This will be a real time 5 v 5 battle arena set across different maps from the franchise. Players can build their best team and upgrade the characters in order to beat the elite. There will be a pvp mode that allows players to go against each other, but will also include a story drive mode as well.
No release date has been set for Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad.
For Honor has a special event currently running in game called, Shadows of the Hitokiri. The event includes a new game mode called Soul Rush, a new map, and special customization for players. The map is set in the Kaidan village, plagued by the victims of Sakura. During the event players can work together to unlock special rewards and other events.
The event will run until June 27, 2019.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
The mutants created during Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Outbreak have returned and are set on tormenting the team in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine. The game is a three player co-op third person shooter. Ubisoft didn’t go into much detail, but it looks to be falling in line with the rest of the franchise.
The release date for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine will be in 2020.
The Division 2
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has three new episodes that will take players to different locations in Washington DC and then back to New York. The first episode will have players navigating their way through the National Zoo. Following this the second episode will see players at the Pentagon. Finally the third episode has players returning the New York. It was teased that they are needed to find someone who has left the cause, but no one was named. Not only where the next three episodes announced, but we are also going to be seeing another raid coming this fall.
I didn’t know I needed this. I really didn’t know. But of course Ubisoft knew I needed Roller Champions, a sports like game that really reminds me of quidditch on skates instead of brooms. What we have seen of the gameplay, this game looks to be great. Since it is still in alpha, I am sure things will adjust as it goes along but anyone who wants to test it can do so now right here!
We have no release date for Roller Champions at this time.
Gods and Monsters
The final trailer from the Ubisoft E3 press conference is my favorite. Gods and Monsters is a game I can really get on board with. The game has the feel of the Assassins Creed franchise mixed with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which just adds to it appeal. The game is described as an action adventure game that will allow players to create a character and explore the island of Blessed full of mythological stories.
Gods and Monsters is set to release February 25, 2020 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The Ubisoft Conference was one of the best for me even though we did not get to see anything regarding the new Assassins Creed game. Or anything to do with the upcoming DLCs for the current one. However, what we did get was perfect. During the conference we got a chance to hear from the developers which gave us more of an insight outside of the trailers themselves. My favorite take away game from the Ubisoft conference has to have been Gods and Monsters. Even just seeing the trailer has won me over without a doubt and will be one of the first games I am looking forward too in 2020.
