Ubisoft E3 Press Conference: ‘South Park,’ ‘For Honor,’ ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ and ‘Rainbow Six Siege’


Ubisoft held its E3 press conference on Monday, June 15, consisting mostly of sequels for their established franchises but with one new IP announcement.

Ubisoft announced For Honor, a new multiplayer melee combat game that pits knights, samurai, and vikings against each other. The game features a melee combat system that gives players a large degree of control over the angle and direction of their attacks and blocks with their swords.

The developer also featured role-playing game South Park: The Fractured But Whole and medieval war game For Honor. For the Tom Clancy franchise, Ubisoft premiered first-person shooter Rainbow Six Siege and player-vs.-player action from massively multiplayer online game The Division before announcing shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Racing games The Crew and Trials Fusion will receive an off-roading-intensive Wild Run expansion in November and the Awesome Level Max expansion in July, respectively. A trailer for Victorian-age Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was showcased, and subscription streaming for Just Dance 2016 music tracks was revealed for PlayStation 4, Wii U, and Xbox One gamers.

Ubisoft also announced sci-fi city simulator Anno 2205 and racing game Trackmania Turbo, which will be on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
