There are a few spectacles at E3 however, none are as great as the Ubisoft E3 show. But did they actually bring a lot of interesting games this year?
They came out swinging showing the latest game in the Watchdogs series. The game is called Watchdogs Legion and is set in the futuristic world of London where the government is taking control and there are lethal drones prowling the streets. The folks over at Deadsec aren’t too happy with this and you will be able to recruit anyone you come in contact with. You want to recruit a team of ex-spies? You can do that! Recruit the people who fit your own play style, explore the world and take down the government.
The next annoucement wasn’t a game but a show done by the folks over at It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This game focuses on a game company and their most popular selling MMO Mythiquest. With the eve of their new expansion it shows what is going on within the company and how people are handling the stress of this release. This gives me flashbacks when I worked at Westwood Studios as we had crunch time to get a game out on time. Next they had a small annoucement as Adventure Time was coming to Brawlhalla.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is the latest entry in the series and this game looks simply amazing. The story is set in a futuristic world and the main bad guy is going to be played by Jon Bernthal (of Punisher and Walking Dead fame). I had heard about this game however, I wasn’t excited to play it until now. Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad is a mobile game that pulls in characters from all over the universe as you will fight against enemies around the world. The next Just Dance was announced as well as a new mode for For Honor and a new Rainbow Six Siege game! Rainbow Six Siege Quarantine puts three operators against one powerful infected as you will try to contain this individual or succumb to the virus.
Divison 2 is a title that I am playing a lot as there are a ton of great things to get and explore within the game. They showed off all three of the episodes planned for this game and it looks amazing showing off another raid as well! And not only are we getting all this great content for the Division 2 but we are getting a movie as well! This movie is going to be coming to Netflix and Jake Gyllenhall is attached to the project! Ubisoft also unveiled their new game service called Uplay + which gives you access to their entire game library. And all of this is available for the low price of $14.99 / month.
The last two games that were shown off were Roller Champions which looks like a cross between roller derby and Rocket League. You will fight against others in the arena as you rise from being an amateur to an elite player in matches in various arenas. Last but not least we had a small trailer for a game called Gods and Monsters. It reminded me of a cross between Breath of the Wild and Shadows of the Colossus but we will see as it looks really good!
