Ubisoft @ E3 2017

Post by OrangeRakoon » Mon Jun 12, 2017 7:19 pm

Ubi deserve their own thread fight me

Pre-show is about to begin, watch here. Conference starts at 9pm.

I'm expecting:

- Assassin's Creed Origins
- Far Cry 5
- South Park: The Fractured but Whole
- For Honor - Season 2
- Just Dance
- Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

I'm hoping for:

- Michel Ancel
- Beyond Good & Evil 2
- Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
- Steep

And I'm already disappointed about:

- No Aisha Tyler

Hopefully we'll get some good surprises too! There has to be at least one indie-like experimental ubi game - something like Grow Home.

... No Aisha?

But... there will still be cringe, right?

EDIT: Watching the pre-show and saw them showing off the new content for the upcoming Steep update, so I suppose I better get back into that soon.

No Aisha is goddamn tragic, but eurogamer informed me it to be the case. She is the life of E3 conferences.

But I am under no doubt there will be cringe.

The pre-show just kicked off with a date of 27th June for the next big Steep update with new sports. For anyone who didn't know I am a gigantic Steep fan so this has made me very happy. already

Splinter Cell?
Please let there be Splinter Cell with Michael Ironside back. They've butchered the other Tom Clancy franchises, let me have this one.

They butchered Splinter Cell when they stopped it being a stealth game.

Also, Rainbow Six Siege may not be classic Rainbow Six, but it's definitely not a butchering. I was playing it just last night

Blacklist wasn't a complete dumpster fire, it has it's moments. It's just a shame they buried all the stealth in the optional missions, and made the campaign into an action movie

Edit: Seige is alright, it's just not a Rainbow Six game, it's Ubisoft brand Counter-Strike.

Not going to argue with that, I was never into Rainbow Six but I wouldn't blame classic fans for missing those games.

I would absolutely love a Splinter Cell game that is a proper sequel to Chaos Theory. Bring back co-op too (and make sure there is a good spies vs mercs).

Will end up missing a small chunk of it. I Just wanna see this Mario Rabbids game. Anything else that peaks my fancy will be a plus.
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

It looks brilliant, any doubts I had from when it was leaked are gone. Ubisoft look like they've nailed it, it's completely charming and pitched perfectly.

Hopefully all impressions of the actual gameplay will be just as positive.

The fact that they led with it over Assassin's Creed says a lot too.

Is it? I'm pretty sure even Ubi realise by now that AC doesn't really do much for the people who actually talk about and watch E3.

I just pre-ordered with the soundtrack

I am weak

Pirates looks cool, it's like Sea of Thieves but I can play it.

Yeah, between Kingdom Battle and BGE2, that was a brilliant conference. Stuff in between wasn't terrible either.

Skull & Bones kinda grabbed my interest when they introduced the giant Kraken, but aside from that the pirate's life is not for me.

Not saying much.

But yeah, was solid and consistent throughout, gave a decent amount of time to each title with a couple of interesting ones there. Not particularly interested in Mario and Rabbids but it looks good for what it is, Skull and Bones was a surprise and looks cool, BG&E2 looks promising for what's been shown so far, everything else is entirely as you'd expect.

Ok I'm late to the party, Mario and Rabbids actually looks like quite a good game so far. Not watched much else but is anything else shown Switch bound?

Just Dance 2018 and Starlink (which doesn't look that great tbh). There were rumours BGE2 would be, but nothing confirming or denying it in the conference as far as I saw.

That's a shame :( the pirate game sounds like it'll be good from what's been said here. Those rumours re BGE2 have been circulating for a while haven't they? Did they announce any platforms for it?

BG&E2 wasn't rumours, it's been a known title for a while now. PS4 and XB1, supposedly PS3 and X360 too but they could easily be dropped.

Starlink just looks like a cashgrab to be honest.
