The Biggest News from Ubisoft’s E3 2019 Conference

Check out all the latest announcements from Ubisoft.

Jun 10, 2019

By: Noah Friscopp

This year set a much more laid back tone for the company who usually opts for big and bombastic openings for their showcases with an opening symphony retelling the history of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Music can be one of the most memorable parts of games, our favorite songs stick with us years after putting down a game and to start out the conference with this was a great move. PlayStation did this back in 2016, and hopefully more follow suit.

Watch Dogs: Legion

The new entry in the Watch_Dogs series takes place in a London that has gone awry. Ubisoft is known for its incredibly detailed recreations of cities, and this dystopian London looks incredibly lifelike. The big feature of this game is the ability to recruit any bystander you see in the world to your organization, each with their own unique skills and talents. However, when your character is taken down, that’s it, you gotta find someone else to play as. You can play as any character in the game, with some being better than others. Each person you recruit has a unique story, and who you recruit is entirely up to you. This idea is incredibly ambitious, nothing like this has been done before. There is no one hero; instead all of the citizens of London are responsible for overthrowing the tyranny by banding together. The highlight of the demo was definitely the hacker grandma, who deployed a drone and used a taser to take on enemies.  

Mythic Quest

A series based on the life and times of a creative director of a fictional MMORPG that hopes to take a deep dive into the lives of game developers, no doubt with a comedic twist.

Rainbow Six Siege Phantom Sight

Two new playable operators are being added to the ever popular tactical shooter.

Adventure Time’s Finn and Jake in Brawlhalla

Jake the Dog and Finn the Human are coming to the Smash Bros. like fighting game along with new stages and game modes. The game is available for free in both local and online play on all major systems.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

Jon Bernthal plays Cole Walker, the game’s villain. He was a former member of the elite Ghost Recon, and along with his army known as the Wolves, he plans on taking over the fictional island of Auroa. The new game takes place after Ghost Recon Wildlands and pits former friends and allies against each other.

Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad

A new mobile game where you play as a squad of various main characters from all across the Tom Clancy games, including Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher.

Just Dance 2020

Announced via a musical number to Panic at the Disco’s High Hopes, Just Dance 2020 is the latest in the long-running music game series. It is coming to every major console, as well as the original Nintendo Wii.

For Honor: Shadows of the Hitokiri

A new expansion to the historical multiplayer battleground.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine

Rainbox Six Quarantine is a cooperative twist on Rainbow Six Siege’s gameplay. If you’re more interested in helping your fellow players rather than competing with them, this is the Rainbow Six for you.

The Division 2 Expansions

The Division 2 is going to be free to play from June 13th-June 16th. Also, the first of the game’s major updates is coming in July. It is episode 1 of The Division’s DLC and takes place in both a zoo outside of Washington DC and more. Episode 2 takes place in the Pentagon, and Episode 3 revolves around the hunt of a traitor to the Division agents that holds the fate of the world in the balance. There is also a movie in the works that will land on Netflix.

Uplay+

A take on Microsoft’s Game Pass, Uplay+ is a subscription service that gives you access to over a hundred Ubisoft games. Uplay+ will also be coming to Google Stadia.

Roller Champions

Roller Champions is a team-based racing/sports game that is available to play in a demo today. The game has a very colorful and animated movie like art style, with vibrant arenas and characters competing for the win. The mix of both racing around the track and passing a ball toward the goal is an exciting twist on both sports and racing games by combining both types of gameplay together.

Gods and Monsters

Centered around Greek Mythology, this new series is a significant departure from the more realistic look of a lot of other Ubisoft games. Visually, it is very similar to games like Breath of the Wild. We don’t know much about how this game will play other than it being an open world adventure with some puzzle solving and combat, but this one will be available on February 25th, 2020.
