Ubisoft’s E3 press conference was brisk, full of interesting reveals and interesting showcases of games in development. Here’s a brief recap, game by game:
MARIO AND RABBIDS:
Nintendo’s chief designer Shigeru Miyamoto made a dramatic announcement, with a Mario-Rabbids crossover being released. It’s a turn-based RPG. The game appears to be fun, and it comes out on the switch on April 29.
The popular racing game had a trailer reveal, which shows off the massive pen world setting of the game, and various vehicles to choose from, such as cars, planes and more. It’s slated for a 2018 release.
ASSASIN’S CREED ORIGINS:
News about the game’s release was out earlier, with a trailer being shown, along with some of the gameplay, and additional features. It seems to have a 2018 release.
SKULL AND BONES:
One of the most interesting games shown, it is a pirate themed game, where players can go solo, or join up with others, though it seems to be a lot more than that. It’s assassin’s Creed 4’s naval warfare, without the story.
A new trailer dropped, showing off more of the environment and methods of attacking, whether stealthily or going guns blazing. A new dog companion, Boomer, was also shown.

Ubisoft and Elijah Wood team up for VR game about PTSD, coming spring 2018.
BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL 2:
The biggest news of the conference, the game is a takes places before the events of the cult classic 2003 game, though different from it. The trailer showed the universe of the game. No release date has been announced.
The Ubisoft conference was brisk, efficient, and interesting, with interesting reveals and surprises. It was a good conference to follow, and write on.
