Last night, Ubisoft held their virtual E3 press conference complete with game announcements, giveaways, and much more. We have the rundown of all the biggest announcements you might have missed from the show.
Mobile games may not be the sexiest to showcase, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t quality to be found. Might and Magic has a long pedigree in the PC space and its translation to mobile looks to bring the style to life.
An early contender for next year’s game of the year comes the next iteration of Far Cry. Giancarlo Esposito of Better Call Saul and The Mandalorian is making the leap to video games as the chilling and brutal dictator of a country torn apart by riots and political upheaval. He is as riveting in digital form as he is in the flesh. The villains have long been supremely compelling in the Far Cry games and this looks to continue the tradition.
After a bizarre turn of events in the Xbox Showcase where gameplay was promised and never delivered, we finally got to see Valhalla in action at Ubisoft Forward. Players will take control of Eivor, a Viking Chieftan that sets out to raid and settle English lands during the 9th century. Eivor is forced to raid and settle this new land since their ancestral land becomes more inhospitable. The protagonist must ensure that the settlement flourishes and is protected. It looks brutal in all the best ways.
Ubisoft Forward showcased another –halla game, this one with a bit more whimsical vibe. The free-to-play brawler is bringing its unique brand of chaos to mobile. There is a Ben Ten event happening in the game right now that is open to all players.
Ubisoft stealth launched Hyper Scape last week and the game has caught a surprisingly large amount of buzz. The game’s PC beta is now open for anyone to jump in, and with a robust player base if you are looking for something a little different than what’s already on the market, it’s worth a look.
For those desperately trying to suss out the release date of the next generation of consoles, Ubisoft Forward may have provided a hint. Watch Dogs Legion was provided a release date of October 29th. While it is unknown if the game will simply launch later on next-gen consoles, this may hint to the consoles launching in the earlier part of November. Be sure to pick up your free copy of Watch Dogs 2 if you haven’t already.
