E3 Ubisoft Conference – round-up

E3-Ubisoft

The Ubisoft conference is the fourth press conference of this year’s E3 and expectations are for more information and footage of already announced games. However, will they have a few surprises up their sleeves? Aisha Tyler once again presents this year’s conference, with her genuine passion for the industry, charisma and skilful presenting helping to smooth over the sometimes awkward stage presence of developers. Mind you, our money’s on a “tall woman” joke hitting at some point during the show.

First up is a complete and wonderful surprise, a new South Park RPG is in the works, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Smashing title by the way. Showing in-game footage the reveal trailer hints at a hilarious continuation of the previous game’s story and characters, this time, however, the South Park lad are playing super heroes rather than high fantasy. No release date yet, but colour us excited.

Next up is another surprise, and a new IP at that, For Honor, a medieval melee-combat action game where you choose to be the heroes Viking, Knight, or Samurai in a 4 vs. 4 fight amongst a bustling battlefield. They’ll be multiple modes with different objectives, but the focus is on short, team combat scenarios. Proclamations are made of this being a new genre, we hope they’re referring to a new genre for Ubisoft, because there’s some striking similarities with the likes of Chivalry going on.

Next a new expansion is revealed for The Crew, The Crew: Wildrun, where monster trucks and dirt track vehicles seem to be the focus. Then a new expansion for Trails Fusion is revealed, Trails Fusion: Awesome Level Max, where you are a cat riding a fire breathing unicorn. We’re sold.

A game we’ve » Continue Reading.

There is no release date yet, but we imagine it will coming our way next year.
