Ubisoft was reportedly going to bring the heat to this year’s E3, and the company’s presentation turned out to be one of the most eventful so far.
Opening with a performance by the Assassin’s Creed Symphony and their live dates was a pretty strong start, but the Watch Dogs: Legion gameplay trailer right after? Yeah, that really drove it home.
Watch Dogs: Legion
The Watch Dogs: Legion footage started off calm, but it didn’t take long for Ian to get into some trouble during his walk around London, which eventually turns into choosing an entirely different character.
As previously mentioned by Ubisoft, Watch Dogs: Legion will allow players to take control of a vast amount of NPC characters to perform their nasty DedSec operations. Based on the gameplay trailer, the sequel looks to be vastly more dynamic than the previous two games. You can recruit and play as anyone in Watch Dogs: Legion. Spicy!
Ubisoft claims each character has its own story, profile, recruitment mission, and more. If it’s done right, this could pale the previous two Watch Dog titles completely.
We don’t have to wait too long for this bad boy; Watch Dogs: Legion will be released March 6, 2020.
It’s Always Sunny in.. Ubidelphia?
Rob Elmchenny from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame came on stage after the Watch Dogs: Legion presentation to announce his upcoming new show, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet.
McElhenny himself plays series lead Ian (that’s pronounced “eye-an,” you jabroni) Grimm, Creative Director for the biggest MMORPG in the series’s universe with an ego that seems to be as big as the game’s massive population.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet will be an Apple TV exclusive with no air date just yet.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege DLC
Yes, the new DLC for Rainbow Six Siege! Check the trailer below. This one takes the smoother route, as you might expect from a DLC titled Operation Phantom Sight.
Brawhalla + Adventure Time
As of today, Adventure Time characters will be coming to Ubisoft’s Smash-like Brawlhalla.
Finn, Jake, and Princess Bubblegum are all available to play for free in Brawlhalla right now during a limited time event. Once the event is over, the character can be purchased from the in-game shop for 300 Mammoth coins.
The Adventure Time event will be lasting until June 25 and bring with it a new map, mode, and special KO effects that will still be usable in-game once the event has ended.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Cole D. Walker, a special forces officer with his own moral code and does what he has to in order to complete his mission against the Wolves. This is Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
You don’t have to sit on your hands and wait for Breakpoint to come out; you can hop on over to the official site right now and register for the September 5 beta. Release isn’t far off, with release waiting just around the corner on October 4. What’s keeping you waiting?
Ghost Recon Delta Company was also announced during the presentation, which will allow fans to share anything they want related to the Ghost Recon series.
They’ve got to squeeze one mobile game in there, and they did just that here with Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad.
Featuring characters from other Tom Clancy and Ubisoft titles, squads of five players will be able to duke it out with other squads of five. There has been a story mode announced as well as PvP. You can pre-register for the game now on the official website.
Just Dance 2020? Of Course…
There’s really not much to say here but Just Dance 2020 is releasing later this year in November on basically every platform available (including the Wii, wow) with 40 new songs.
Limited Event For Honor Event: Shadows of the Hitokiri
In a surprise announcement comes a new warrior to For Honor: the Hitokiri, a mask-wearing axe-wielding warrior with a thirst for souls. The new warrior comes with a brand new event for For Honor players looking for something a little different.
The event hosts the Soul Rush special game mode, which tasks players to collect souls during combat.
You can read more about the Shadows of Hitokiri event on the official site. It will be running on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One until June 27.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
Now for something just a little different (just a tiny bit): Rainbow Six Quarantine.
Details on this title are currently scarce, but it’s slated to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You can sign up for “a chance to play early” on the official website.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Episode 3
Don’t think just The Division 2‘s all done with all these other Tom Clancy announcements from Ubisoft this year. The third episode of The Division 2 will be taking players back to Washington D.C., the setting of the first game.
The Division 2 will also be receiving a new raid out this fall, showing the game’s not close to done yet.
The Division Netflix Adaptation
The Division is getting a film adaptation on Netflix. The release date may still be a mystery, but we do know Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain will be in the production.
The plot for the upcoming movie is:
In the near future, a pandemic virus is spread via paper money on Black Friday, decimating the city of New York and killing millions. By Christmas, what’s left of society has descended into chaos. A group of civilians, trained to operate in catastrophic times, are activated in an attempt to save who and what remains.
Even Ubisoft is getting on the subscription service bandwagon, with Uplay Plus rolling out later this year and being compatible with Google Stadia.
If you sign up between now and August 15, you will have free access to Uplay Plus between September 3 and 30 later this year.
Roller Champions is definitely out of left field, which seems to be preferable with free to play titles here in 2019.
Roller Champions is a PvP sports title hoping to find some competitive footing. Though its release date hasn’t been announced, you can play the E3 demo right now until June 14 to see if this one’s up your alley.
Gods & Monsters
The final announcement of the Ubisoft conference was a surprise entry: Gods & Monsters, a Greek mythology-focused title coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia with a notable lighter tone than most of the rest of the presentation.
Details on Gods & Monsters are presently scarce. It appears to be an open world title, with loads of challenges both combat and puzzle-oriented present. We’ll surely see more of this title before its release on February 25, 2020.
Whew, that was a lot of Tom Clancy from Ubisoft this year. E3’s not over just yet, though! Let us know in the comments below which announced titles you’re looking most forward to from E3.
