The Ubisoft press conference breakdown.

Ubisoft's E3 2016 press conference was the least-shitty press conference I've ever seen Ubisoft do, thanks mainly to an excellent presentation for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, For Honor single-player content and a Watch Dogs demo that actually interested me in Watch Dogs.

Then they talked about the Assassin's Creed movie and mucked it up quite a bit, but still!  I give it a B+.  Let's break it down.

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be out December 6th. 
  • some new DLC is coming to The Division
  • Eagle Flight (Ubi's VR game) got a 3-on-3 capture-the-rabbit demo.  
  • Ubisoft has a Star Trek co-op bridge simulator that I would totally play. 
  • For Honor got a story trailer - it has a story?!  It also got a really nice campaign demo.  Yes, it has a campaign!  Launches February 14, 2017 - same day as Persona 5.
  • Grow Up, sequel to Grow Home announced - coming this August.  
  • Trials of the Blood Dragon is a Trials game with Blood Dragon sensibilities, out today. 
  • Then they talked about the Assassin's Creed movie for like, forever
  • Watch Dogs 2 got a hot new trailer and some hot new gameplay, and looks like not-shit. It's coming November 15th. 
  • All Watch Dogs 2 DLC will come to PS4 30 days before any other platform. 
  • Ubisoft thinks that downhill skiing/extreme sports is a "completely new genre," and they're calling their game Steep.  It looks not-bad
And that was Ubisoft!  It was wayyy better than years prior.  We still love you, Aisha Tyler.
