Though the highlight of Ubisoft’s conference was undoubtedly the appearance of a dog, there’s much to look forward to from Ubisoft in terms of games as well! In case you missed out on the stream – here are the highlights from today’s Ubisoft Conference at E3, from the announcements of game sequels to brand-new games.
Watch Dogs Legion Announced
Ubisoft’s leg of announcements kicked off with an extensive gameplay demo of the latest release in the Watch Dogs series.
Players will be able to take control of a range of different characters (or resistance agents) – from your typical bald, chiselled thugs, to a grandma who’s a retired spy. That’s the main pull of this upcoming game, really: you can recruit and play as anyone you encounter in-game!
Watch Dogs Legion will be out March 6, 2020, on consoles and for the PC.
Introduction of New Game: Gods & Monsters
A beautiful new action-adventure game in which the player is made to fight mythological creatures, Gods & Monsters is “a storybook adventure about a forgotten hero on a quest to save the Greek gods.”
From the creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the game’s open-world aspects and overall style are reminiscent of Breath of the Wild – we can’t wait to see what the game has in store!
Gods & Monsters will be out on February 25, 2020 for consoles and on PC.
Launch of Game Subscription Service (UPlay+)
Much like other gaming platforms, Ubisoft has hopped onto the trend and announced a game subscription service of its own.
For USD $15 a month, UPlay+ subscribers will be granted access to a library of over 100 Ubisoft games and all their DLCs. Players will also get early access to upcoming games, and new releases like Watch Dogs Legion will be included as part of the game library.
The UPlay+ subscription service will launch in October this year, and will be playable on Google Stadia in 2020.
Rainbow Six: Quarantine Announced
Going back to game announcements, the next Rainbow Six has been revealed as well. Rainbow Six: Quarantine is a three-player tactical co-op game that will be coming in early 2020, that seems to carry more horror vibes than its predecessor.
On that note, Rainbow Six‘s next season, “Operation Phantom Sight”, will also be releasing tomorrow (June 12th).
More Details on Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
Here’s where the highlight of Ubisoft’s conference (literally) comes in, in the form of Jon Bernthal bringing a dog on stage.
The dog talked about the upcoming Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, which will be including AI teammates for solo players as part of its “post-launch plan”.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will be made available on October 4 this year, though a beta for the game will be launched September 5.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gets Story Creator and Discovery Tour Modes
Would it really be a Ubisoft conference without an Assassin’s Creed announcement?
Announced during the pre-show, the new Story Creator is a quest building mode where players can make their own Assassin’s Creed missions. The Story Creator will come with customisable dialogue and branching pathways, and will also be allowing players to share the missions they’ve made with others. It’s in open beta starting from today.
Discovery Tour, on the other hand, lets you wander ancient Greece unhindered by enemies. Go take a walk in-game and learn about history!
Along with the announcement of a new Just Dance game (which will be released on the Wii, amongst other platforms) and an original roller-skating game, that’s just about all that Ubisoft announced today.
