Ubisoft is on hand today for E3 in Los Angeles. During its presser, the company revealed a number of new games as well as some old friends.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle CONFIRMED
After months of speculation and leaked images, we now know that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle cross over is real. Players will find the Rabbids somehow transported to the Mushroom Kingdom. As you’d expect, they team up with well known Nintendo characters including Peach, Mario, Luigi and Yoshi.
Beyond Good & Evil 2
Fans have been waiting for this one for a long time. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is coming soon and is a “prequel” to the first game. In fact, it takes place before Jade was even born. The new trailer sets the stage for BG&E2 as well as gives a sneak peek at the characters, strangely a primate and a woman. Go figure.
Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 took the spotlight today with a brand new game play trailer. Players take the role of a deputy working to free townsfolk from religious zealots. Far Cry 5 is either a single player game or two-player coop.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
During Ubi’s presser today, the company announced a very special edition of Assassin’s Creed: Origins. The Creed Legendary Edition will cost $799.99 and come in a limited run of only 200 in North America. The boxed edition will contain a 29″ tall Bayek & Senu figure as well as a cloth map, special case, necklace and much more. You can see it for yourself on the Ubistore.
The Crew 2
People are pretty excited by The Crew 2 after checking out today’s trailer. We are all used to cars and trucks as well as motorcycles. That’s normal. However, it’s the addition of planes that has people talking. Among all the excitement, however, there is a bit of a downer in that The Crew 2 won’t be coming until 2018. But there are PLANES!
Skull & Bones
Skull & Bones is a new multiplayer game from Ubisoft Singapore. If you remember Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, this naval combat game should seem pretty familiar. It takes place on the Indian Ocean and is a cooperative game or a PvP ship sinking fest. You can own a number of ships and there are a lot of customization options as well.
Steep Is Heading to the Olympics
Steep is Ubi’s extreme sports game and it’s heading to the Olympics! The expansion is called “Road to the Olympics” and it is themed around 2018’s Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang. It will be released in December.
Ubisoft announced its “VR psychological thriller”, Transference. Not a whole lot was said, but it does have the involvement of Elijah Wood. The game centers on “the destructive tale of a man’s obsession as you explore his digitally recreated memories”. Sounds spooky.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole & New Mobile Game
South Park is another game that was trotted out by Ubisoft today. Fans were treated to a brand new trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. While South Park has been delayed a few times, it seems that we’re on track for the October 13th release.
South Park characters will be busy in The Fractured But Whole as well as in South Park Phone Destroyer for, you guessed it: PHONES!
Just Dance 2018
If you love K-Pop, Just Dance 2018 is the game for you! It was introduced at the Ubisoft presser with some Mortal Kombat dancers and a Korean pop star named Hyuna. Just Dance 2018 is set for release in October.
