E3 2015 - Ubisoft Press Conference

Woke up at 6am this morning to catch the Ubisoft Press Conference. Ubisoft has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the recent year but I can't deny that they still make some fantastic games.

Here's what one of my favourite developers, seconded only by Rockstar, had on show.

Not going to talk about everything but just my favourites..

For Honor

Here's the World Premiere Trailer at the conference..

And some gameplay..

I have been wanting someone to do a game like this. Enough with the PvP shooter games, I wanted to see a solid melee-combat PvP. And considering it's 4v4 team-based, it's even better!

The game was presented by Creative Producer, Jason Vandenberghe who looked like he could fit right in the game himself.

If they can get the controls and mechanics right for this, it's going to be a real fun game. 

Outside the Press Conference, this gameplay walkthrough video was also released..

I registered for the early access here, probably for Alpha or Beta access..

The Crew

Enjoyed the Beta for the original game before it's release but didn't get in the end.. But it's good to see it doing well and that it will be getting a whole new expansion pack on 17th Nov 2015..

The Division

After the delay, it was a bit quiet from The Division but here it is with a release date!

E3 Trailer

and Multiplayer gameplay footage..

Looking good, sucks if you are at the receiving end of your team going rogue though..

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

Another of Tom Clancy's shooters, Rainbow Six Siege will be out on 13 Oct 2015.

E3 Trailer

Terrorist Hunt Co-Op Trailer

and Gameplay Demo

Assassin's Creed Syndicate

A Ubisoft Press Conference isn't complete without a Assassin's Creed game and of course each year I look forward to their oh-so-beautiful Cinematic Trailers..

And there's this Gameplay walkthrough video which didn't appear at Ubisoft's Press Conference, probably cut because of time..

I have my complains about the game and the franchise as a whole but Assassin's Creed is still a franchise close to my heart and I'm still excited for what this latest installment will bring.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands

And probably leaving one of the best for last.. Ghost Recon: Wildlands!

This came as a surprise to me. Watching the premiere trailer, I had no idea what this was but it looked so damn cool! For the first time in the franchise, Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be an open-world game. We will get access to many vehicles on air, land & sea.

For more info on the game, check out DualShockers' FAQ for more info.

Strangely, I was most impressed by this game from the 3 Tom Clancy's shooters. I think it's a combination of the Drug Cartel setting as well as the excitement of seeing it for the very first time. Have high hopes for this.

So yup.. that's all the stuff that caught my interest from Ubisoft's Press Conference...

I felt that Bethesda's showcase yesterday showed a lot more gameplay compared to Ubisoft. But Ubisoft had plenty more games on show, with some big, exciting ones. Mixed up some new IPs like For Honor with fan-favourites like Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

Still... Ubisoft disappointed me because there was no fucking Prince of Persia!!!!! 

Dammit, make the game already! Instead of 3 Tom Clancy shooters, there could have been a Prince of Persia game!

Anyway.. check out the entire Ubisoft Press Conference (that has no Prince of Persia) below..

Yup, no Prince of Persia..
