Ubisoft Press Conference - As it happened

The Ubisoft press conference kicked off with some dancing, which certainly helped lighten our mood after a stressful day.

While everyone was having a good time, we were wondering what Ubisoft would be showing. Afterwards Aisha Tyler came out and announced Just Dance 2017 will release next year for current consoles and Nintendo NX.

The first game shown after than was Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Graphically it looks very impressive, although it was only a CGI trailer as seen below.

The game is all about the Coco bean or Cocaine. Which is my a Mexican Drug Cartel has moved in and took over. You need to stop the cartel and get your Hot Chocolate back from those who'd rather use the beans for drugs.

It includes solo play or if you like, four player co-op. 

Ghost Recon: Wildlands launches on March 7, 2017.

South Park The Fractured Butthole was next. We saw combat, details of how to make your own superhero and all the awesome humour you'd expect from the game. It looks fantastic too.

If you pre-purchase the Fracture Butthole, which is released on December 6 then you can start playing The Stick of Truth on PS4, Xbox One and PC today as it comes free with the game.

Check out the trailer below.

The Division Underground was talked about next and we get new content this June 28 for Xbox One and PC and August 2 on PS4. You also get free Splinter Cell outfits to celebrate Ubisoft's 30th birthday.

Another new expansion was announced - Survival. It takes place in a blizzard, which obviously means conditions aren't ideal. You'll need your wits about you to survive here. It's listed as coming soon, with the Xbox One releasing coming first.

Palmer Lucky was on stage next with Oculus Rift to show us Ubisoft's new VR game. It is known as Eagle's Flight and we know this will also be available on PlayStation VR. 

Star Trek Bridge Crew was next, which seeing you play in co-op on the bridge of the enterprise, while taking orders from the captain. Sure it looks strange but at the same time, we're sure Star Trek fans will love it.

For Honor was next up, showing us a new trailer which looked pretty impressive, although it did remind us of Dark Souls a little in style, although it is a little Ryse about it too.

Here's the cinematic trailer.

You'll be able to play as a Samurai to unite your people, or as a Viking you can raid the samurai for glory. You can of course, do the honorable thing and play as a knight too. Fighting for justice and good.

The gameplay showed a Viking trying to raid the Samurai's home, which involved a lot of fighting and some climbing up the walls of a fortress. This ended with a showdown between the Viking and Samurai.

The game arrives February 14, 2017.

Next up was Grow Up - The sequel to Grow Home. Our little robot friend jumps around and platforms for fun. Bud doesn't have his home, but he does have a large planetary playground by throwing down seeds, which he can throw down to bound to new heights.

Another new game was shown next in Trials of The Blood Dragon.

This seems you going 80's and shooting lots of things while jumping over all manner of ramps and obstacles on your bike. Looks out there.

We got a look a the Assassin's Creed movie next, probably because there is no game coming this year. There was a lot of talk about the movie but to be honest it went in one ear and out the other because my eyes were half closing after a long day.

So secrets, none. But we did get to see a bit of the movie.

Watch Dogs 2 was next. We got to see more of the gameplay in a walk through from the developer, although you can watch below, so we won't bother going into detail about it.

You can get the Watch Dogs 2 DLC on PS4 30 days before other platforms.

Another new game leaked while Ubisoft talked about Watch Dogs 2 and that was Steep. A new open world sports game, which sees you trying out different challenges. You can play against other players racing in wingsuits, paragliding, snowboarding, skiing and more. You can watch replays and more.

It looks great and you can sign up for the beta today.

Steep arrives in December.

So that was that. So what did you think about Ubisoft's conference?

Paid on Ubishop, when you 'pre-order' with them it takes the money straight away - but i'm thinking only the USA get the download straight away - we just get it as a code in the case. If it pops up on US PSN tonight i'm going to cancel and buy it on there - I really want to play the Stick of Truth on the PS4

Just got Southpark off Canadian PSN - Stick of truth downloading onto my PS4 now, along with Trials. The thing I love about the Ubi shows is the energy they have - the other ones have been really boring in comparison so far. I'm not a fan of the looooong gameplay sections though - each conference has had a few so far and they drag on longer than they should imho

@paulaw - you will get it in teh case with the game but not tomorrow as shopto will just get the retail versions, you only get the code if you pay now digitally on either the ubishop or steam/xbox/psn. I pre-paid on ubishop but think the offer isn't over here so I've cancelled their order and just bought it on my Canadian psn account. I just wanted to play through it asap so I had to get it now :D

@ Jay. Yes, then just put a random Canadian address on off Google

@jay. Yeah, make an account on the website, put in a Canadian address and it becomes Canadian. Then add to your os4 and activate the ps4 as primary - you can have 14 primary accounts. Then anything u buy from Canada will be playable on your marina account for trophies and ps plus etc. then get your top up credit from pcgsmesupply. It's about 10-11 quid for 20 dollars. So most of the time you get games for about 20-50% less - especially in sales compared to ours. I got southpark stick and but whole for 40 quid. It's 55 over here to get digitally.

Might have to go the US account route to get the stick of truth. The PSN store has updated and it's still missing. It's so frustrating that us in the UK are left wanting all the time when the states simply push games out without issue. I wonder if this has something to do with us getting a censored version of the game... We might be waiting forever.

@PaulaW - I tend to use the Canadian account more than US as they have a lot of games on the same dollar value but Canadian dollars are cheaper for us than US dollars :) - if you do though you have to search for "South Park' in the search but don't press enter, then click on the Stick of truth PS4 either gold or reg edition. It doesn't appear to be advertised on the main page, but it is there if you search :D
