Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference will be taking place on Tuesday June 14th at 6am. We’ve rounded up all of the Press Conference in Australian local time as well as where you can watch HERE. Press Start will be in attendance at E3 this year, bringing you all of the coverage live from LA.
We already know that Watch Dogs 2 will launch in November and be Ubisoft’s flagship title for holiday 2016. We know that it will have a protagonist and be set in San Francisco. Ubisoft have already revealed quite a bit of information about the game which leads me to believe that they’ll use their press conference to show off pure gameplay. I think we’ll see real advancements in the way that we saw Assassin’s Creed 2 improve majorly on Assassin’s Creed. I expect much more variety in missions and expanded multiplayer universe. Ubisoft have a lot to do when it comes to changing people’s perception on Watch Dogs. A lot of people still feel burnt over the first game.
We don’t know a whole lot about this game besides the reveal trailer that was shown last E3. The first game in the series had a terrible run with delays and having to rework certain parts of the game. A new studio is working on this game so I’d suspect that we’ll see gameplay and potentially a release date. Ubisoft know that fans are weary of when this will come out, so they’ll want to take to its second showing with a release date to build that hype. I suspect that it’ll be early 2017. I’m personally super pumped for this game. The first one really was a breath of fresh air in the gaming landscape.
We know that development of Ghost Recon Wildlands started in 2012, so it’s a safe bet that this game is almost ready to go. Ubisoft will be looking to give it a huge showing at E3. I suspect that we’ll see more of the multiplayer functionality which is coming in the form of four-player co-operative multiplayer. I think we’ll definitely see it release in 2016 which will round out Ubisoft’s 2016 holiday lineup. Personally, I don’t have too much interest for the title, but the game will have a major audience if it turns out to be good, which I trust that it will.
