This was a major conference for Ubisoft, considering this year is their 30th Anniversary and they did a lot to celebrate it with this event.
They opened the conference with the announcement of a new Just Dance game, releasing on everything including Nintendo’s NX platform. This is the first Ubisoft games announced for the platform and we will likely see more titles from the company announced for the console when more is announced on it.
South Park: The Fractured BUT Whole was shown off in a big way, with three new videos coming out on the game showing off the story, the character creation system, the games new combat system and a new official trailer. It will be releasing this year and a Xbox One and PS4 port of Stick of Truth will be free for people that pre-order the game today. The PS4/X1 port is releasing today.
For Honored was also showed off with a demo of the single player campaign and a new trailer showed off. It is coming early next year and an alpha beta is coming out soon. Ghost Recon Wildlands was also showed off with a live gameplay demo too.
Assasins Creed was presented at the event with a new trailer going over the upcoming film and some behind-the-scenes stuff that is going on with the project behind development.
New titles were announced too; Grow-Up the sequel to Grow Home, Trails of the Blood Dragon announced for PS4/X1/PC & releasing today, and a VR Start Trek game coming too all VR platforms were the main highlights to me.
The show closed with three things; a lengthy gameplay demo of the promising Watch Dogs 2, a new IP announcement called Steep (open-world sports game) coming this December and a nice video celebrating Ubisoft’s anniversary. This was a great conference and I was very pleased with the announcements.
