Ubisoft stands as one of the most dominant companies in the gaming industry. They have updates on current titles plus sequels to some of their strongest franchises. This is what you may have missed from Ubisoft’s conference this E3.
Assassin’s Creed Symphony
A symphony tour is coming to play songs from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise. The 80 piece orchestra will be performing shows around Europe and North America. You can buy tickets here.
Watch Dogs Legion
The third installment of Watch Dogs has unleashed a lot of details plus a gameplay reveal.
The discussions around the leak and its official confirmation leading up to E3 about playing as NPCs have been cleared up. Players are building a resistance army against the chaos that has embedded itself throughout London. You can scan anyone to see their stats, with every citizen having their own life and animations, to decide on who you want to recruit. After completing the origin mission, you have earned another playable character. You can select whoever you want anytime or if you die then you immediately go into a selection screen for a new playable character. Yes, if you die, it is permanent.
Combat was shown with a new melee system that looks quite fluid. Of course, you have your guns, which are another option if you want. Like the previous two titles, you get to play any way you wish to with stealth, going in loud and lethal, or focusing on hacking your way through objectives.
Watch Dogs Legion comes out March 6 for Xbox, PS4, and PC.
Always Sunny Creator’s New Show
Rob McElhenney, the main mastermind behind the FX series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, announced he will work with Ubisoft for an Apple TV show called Mythic Quest. The sitcom will show the troubles in game development while poking fun at all things gaming.
Ian Grimm (Rob McElhenney) is an egotistical creative director at a studio that has developed the most popular MMO, Mythic Quest. The company is on its way to make an expansion, Raven’s Banquet, and audiences will see the chaos that happens behind the scenes.
