So Ubisoft won out on my coverage for the day, I must say however if you enjoy Final Fantasy or The Avengers then certainly check out that presentation. I certainly am now more interested about the Final Fantasy 7 remake than I originally was. Nevertheless let’s get started on Ubisoft’s conference!
We of course got to learn about the new Wacth Dogs, Watch Dogs Legion which claims to allow you to play as any character you meet in the game by recruiting them to your resistance agency. The game is set in post-Brexit London which I find a hilarious political statement as it’s now become a totalitarian control society. It’s a shame the game was leaked before E3 but we still got some good gameplay however considering Ubisoft’s track record with this I will still be skeptical about what is shown.
We also got shown a brand new Ghost Recon game known as ‘Breakpoint’ which stars John Bernthal as the main villain which was quite an amazing choice. He even appeared on stage with a dog to talk about the game! Having a game in which you face off against the Netflix Punisher sounds amazing but with how generic the series has been I just hope they provide some more interesting incentives to play this game. They also talked about a brand new big game from the Assassin’s Creed team called Gods and Monsters but they didn’t really tell us too much about that so I guess we will see later what that’s all about.
We got a couple of other updates to their current games such as a new update for Rainbow Six: Siege, a new expansion for The Division 2 and also their own version of a ‘gaming netflix’ service for Ubisoft games which is more expensive than Microsoft’s offering so I don’t think I will be trying it out. Finally they also showed off a new Rainbow Six co-op experience known as Quarantine which seems like an interesting spin on the standard shooter experience, maybe it will be like Left 4 Dead? We can only hope.
Nintendo tomorrow and oh boy I have a lot to talk about with them. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
