Ubisoft E3 conference as it happened - Round Up

Ubisoft's press conference kicked off in the right way, with a South Park sequel. Now that's what we are talking about.

South Park The Fractured But Whole is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC and everyone is very excited about it, right?

There is no release date as yet.

Next up was a new IP in a new genre, which Ubisoft calls For Honor.

In this fast-paced visceral melee combat experience you carve a path of destruction through the chaos of a raging war as one of three great warrior legacies: bold Knights, brutal Vikings, or mysterious Samurai.

The game has four player co-op and centres around knights. The version we watched was played on PS4 and was full of sword fighting and some brutal finishing moves. It's quite Assassin's Creed like in some ways really.

It sounds like there will be a beta, which you can register for at the games official website, forhonor.com.

Next up was The Crew: Wild Run an expansion for the action-driving game. The expansion is available from October 17th 2015 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

An expansion was also revealed for Trials Fusion.

There are two separately themed events for this fresh new content pack:

- The Awesome Adventure is a funny and previously unseen Trials gaming experience, including a unique unicorn-riding cat!

- RedLynx vs All-Stars is a collection of 22 new tracks, half of them created by RedLynx’s track developers and the other half made by the very best track creators from all around the world!
In total, this new DLC pack features 30 all-new tracks plus 10 Supercross tracks, 30 unexpected and various challenges to complete, unicorn bike & cat rider, 5 new garage items and more than 130 fresh new Editor objects.

For newcomers to Trials Fusion, The Awesome Max Edition includes the base game, all 6 DLC packs from the Season Pass, and the new Awesome Level Max DLC. Over 180 tracks, Online Multiplayer Mode, Tournament mode, customizations, unicorns, explosions and more.

The Awesome Level Max DLC and The Awesome Max Edition will be available on the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store, and via PC digital download on July 14th.

The Division was next up. We've been waiting a while for this one to release, so it was nice to see some new gameplay at last. There was certainly a lot of chatter during the demo, with the female player leading the others  in a bid to escape. There was a big emphasis on teamwork, although as you can see in the footage, things don't always work out the way you want.

The game is out March 8 2016 on all platforms and there will also be a beta next year too.

Anno was the next game shown, which will be also getting a beta later this year. You can raise your city, develop resources and race to space, allowing you the chance to explore the moon and expand onto it. 

Here's a video.

Just Dance 2016 was next up. If you don't have a camera then you can use your mobile phone, although is you have a camera you are all good apparently.

Someone came out on the stage and sang a song after we found that out, although he was a bit rubbish and I've no idea who he was. No worries though, it was a good excuse to have a coffee.

When whatever his name is stopped singing we found out that the game on PS4, Xbox One and Wii U has a new streaming service, allowing you to get even more fresh content.

Next up was Rainbow Six, giving us a glimpse at a new CGI trailer. Here it is. 

Terrohunt is back and is playable either in solo mode or with friends. The mission shown was to disarm bombs and five players took to the task. This particular mission was all about stealth and taking out the enemy before they spotted the team. You only get one life in the game, so teamwork is essential, because if your character is killed you do not respawn.

The beta starts September 24.

Trackmania was next and it's coming to PS4 and Xbox One. It comes complete with extreme tracks, splitscreen and replay editors. The game also has ghosts, customisation and 200 tracks. You can even press one button to create infinite random tracks.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate was the next game shown, complete with a CGI trailer accompanied by some music from Noel Gallagher. It looked great in the first trailer, incredible in fact. 

There is also a walkthrough which you can see below.

The last game shown was Ghost Recon: Wildlands, an open world shooter with stealth, suspense and plenty of action. It also has vehicles, violence and all manner of different environments, from dusty deserts to green, dense jungles.

Check out the trailer below.

And that's it. What did you think?

At the beginning of Rainbow Six video I thought it was that hostess girl model on the screen...
