A Waffle-Free Run Down of Ubisoft’s E3 Conference

We all just want to know the facts. In these heated few days of information, rumour, and screaming women (some people really love their Elder Scrolls) you want to know what’s happened and fast – especially if you’re not sitting in the same time zone. Catching up has never been so easy so take a glance through this year’s Ubisoft presentation and you’ll be completely clued up within moments.

  • Aisha Tyler hosted the event for the fifth time, she took a moment to remember the victims of the Orlando shootings before any announcements were made
  • Just Dance 2017 was announced to Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ and will be released across all platforms in October as well as the NX when it’s finally unveiled
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon was introduced with a gameplay reveal to come to all platforms on March 7th 2017
  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole – the brilliantly named sequel to Stick of Truth that has gone fairly quiet in recent months was shown off through a discussion with Matt and Trey. It will include a number of new features, different focuses and a series of collector’s figures – the game will launch on December 6 for all platforms
