Ubisoft's E3 Press Conference highlights
MANILA, Philippines – Opening the show with a Just Dance 2019 musical number, Ubisoft aimed to delight the crowds with game reveals and trailers galore.
Check out the highlights of this year's Ubisoft E3 Press Conference.
Just Dance 2019
Just Dance is coming back for another dance-off extravaganza, with the game coming out in October.
Beyond Good and Evil 2
Beyond Good and Evil 2 was shown off in a new cinematic trailer. It will apparently be a prequel to the first game players.
Players can create their own character and get to go adventure in the open-world of outer space. A younger Jade, as well as Pey’j will be part of the game's story.
Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the head of HitRecord, also announced a partnership with Ubisoft to provide collaborative asset-making for Beyond Good and Evil 2.
You are super right. Huge oversight. I think script got trimmed at last minute and we fucked that up. It’s hugely important to me that @hitrecord pays artists fairly. Since 2010 we’ve paid community almost $3 million https://t.co/oauU4IUiyE— Joseph Gordon-Levitt (@hitRECordJoe) June 11, 2018
Rainbow Six: Siege
Rainbow Six: Siege announced it now has 35 million players.
There was also an update announced for the game – called Operation Parabellum.
Trials: Rising will be available in February for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It's all about crashing with style and getting back up again!
The Division 2
Completing the DIvision 2's story campaign allows users to pick a specialization, which will give a character a new weapon to go with their equipment.
Ubisoft also said the first 3 pieces of DLC for the game, known as episodes, will be free as post-release updates. The Division 2 will also get 8-person endgame raids.
The game will be released on March 15, 2019.
Mario Rabbids: Kingdom Battle – Donkey Kong Adventure
In another rousing musical number, Ubisoft announced Mario Rabbids would be getting DLC on June 26, titled Donkey Kong Adventure.
Skull and Bones
Justin Farren of Ubisoft Singapore showed off Skull and Bones, which looks to be a somewhat darker-seeming take on Sea of Thieves.
"A shared world where every encounter matters," Skull and Bones looks to provide a multiplatform take on piracy, this time on the Indian Ocean.
Available in Fall 2018, Transference asks you if you can escape a corrupted mind as you're stuck in a dream world. Elijah Wood introduced this team-up between Spectrevision and Ubisoft.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Starlink: Battle for Atlas will feature modular spaceship models you can buy and build. Apparently, the Nintendo Switch version will also have Starfox as an exclusive experience for players.
The game itself will launch on all consoles on October 16.
For Honor: Marching Fire is an update that will bring a Chinese faction to the game called the Wu Lin. There will also be a new 4v4 castle siege gameplay mode called Breach.
Meanwhile, the For Honor Starter Edition is available for free till Monday, June 18.
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will provide players with a role-playing journey through Ancient Greece.
There'll be an option to choose between a male or female character – Alexios or Cassandra – for the entirety of the game, and you'll be bearing the bloodline of a Spartan hero, Leonidas.
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will release on October 5. – Rappler.com
