Ubisoft E3 2019 began its briefing with a rousing symphony, a swirling score that aptly set the overall tone, all the while building suspense for what was to follow. After the orchestral treat, it was time for Ubisoft to inundate our senses. And on that front, the showcase didn’t disappoint from start to finish.
If by the off chance you missed any action from the Ubisoft E3 2019 briefing, we have been busy behind the scenes, breaking down all that mouth-watering content into more manageable chunks. Upon reading, you’ll be up-to-date on all the biggest news to leak from E3 2019. On that note, there’s no need to scout elsewhere, for a comprehensive fix. More importantly, sit back, relax, and of course, enjoy the gaming extravaganza!
Watch Dogs: Legion
First to grace the stage was Watch Dogs: Legion. The third entry in the series takes place amidst the backdrop of a post-Brexit London. As a result, the fractured capital is now heavily militarized as civilians cower under the watchful eye of a paranoid state via 24/7 surveillance.
The authoritarian regime threatens to rule with an iron fist. Thus, your role as a resistance fighter is to form a legion to counteract the overwhelming oppression.
On the surface, Watch Dogs: Legion looks like any other game in the franchise. That said, there’s one surprise mechanic that could place the game in a select category, all on its own. On that note, every NPC in the game can be persuaded into joining your ranks. Even the cinematics will alter depending on the characters you chose.
Admittedly, this is an extremely bold mechanic to pull off. Therefore, whether Ubisoft can make right on their promise remains to be seen. Surely then, we’ll have to compensate in one form or another. But taken at face value, this concept could be just the ticket to revitalize the Watch Dogs saga. This is undoubtedly one of the most impressive revelations to come from the Ubisoft E3 2019 briefing.
We probably can’t get enough of technology in our games, anyway. There’s plenty of things Microsoft’s XBox press conference has to offer in terms of technology.
Ubisoft E3 2019: Roller Champions
Change of pace now, as we check out a new hybrid sports arena title called Roller Champions. This free-to-play competitive game sees players sprint and scurry around an oval track on blades, all the while using momentum to pick up speed and string together points.
What’s interesting though is the 3v3 dynamic, alongside a whole host of ways to snatch points from your opponent. As if staying on your feet isn’t tricky enough at blistering speeds, players must avoid head-on collisions while shooting for goal with a ball during high velocity.
If that doesn’t qualify as wildly frantic fun, then I don’t know what does! See? Who says you can’t have fun for the hell of it, at the Ubisoft E3 2019 showcase.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Announced as the successor to 2017’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, this latest installment, Breakpoint, appears to have adopted a more ominous approach. Set on the fictional Aurora, which shares a landscape not too dissimilar to natural areas found across parts of New Zealand, the game centers around AI technology in the form of drones.
As military responders, you and your team must investigate a communication distributed by the tech company. From then on, you touch down on the archipelago and move inland. But soon after, the plot thickens. Inevitably, the team finds themselves the unwelcome recipient of a hostile takeover.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon begins beta on September 5, 2019, and officially releases on October 4, 2019, across all mainstream systems.
Gods & Monsters
Perhaps, the surprise package within the Ubisoft E3 2019 press conference goes to Gods & Monsters. Coming from the same team that spearheaded Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the short teaser gives us a sneaky glimpse of the game’s protagonist, Phoenix, who is, tasked with eliminating the various monsters that plague the peaceful lands. Of course, on behalf of the gods.
Most notably, the game shares a striking resemblance to the vibrant art-style, belonging to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And, that can only be a positive step in the right direction.
Gods & Monsters hits shelves on February 5, 2020.
Since there’s some visual semblance to Zelda, perhaps we might be inclined to check out the article we have on the Nintendo Direct press conference.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine
Rainbow Six Quarantine is the soon-to-be successor. At least in spirit to “Siege.” Similar in many ways to Outbreak, which was driven by an action-heavy, three-way cooperative mode, fans have been praying for emulation of that very experience ever since. Now, it looks as though those wishful aspirations will finally come to fruition. Way to go, Ubisoft E3 2019!
Ubisoft has never been one to abandon content soon after release. With that in mind, the company stood by those long-enduring principles, mostly, by revealing DLC content for a handful of existing titles.
As a result, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 aired more DLC from its upcoming story episodes, while Ubisoft took the time to demonstrate For Honor’s future content: Shadows of the Hitokiri.
