Looks like Ubisoft are using the old press conference, expo booth and Twitch stream routine. Cunning.
Ubisoft have confirmed their expo plans and schedule for E3 2016. Titles confirmed for the show – and there are no surprises – include Watch Dogs 2, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and VR game Eagle Flight. There will also be a closer look at last year’s unexpected reveal, For Honor.
New games are promised to be unveiled too and if we could have a wish come true it would be for Beyond Good and Evil 2 to make an appearance.
It all kicks off with Ubisoft’s E3 2016 Conference, which takes place on place on Monday 13th June at 1 p.m. It will be hosted by actress and comedian Aisha Tyler, fronting her fifth Ubisoft media briefing.
Ubisoft’s booth will be in the Los Angeles Convention Center’s South Hall and 1,700 fans will also have the opportunity to play their game line-up and meet the development teams at the fourth-annual Ubisoft Lounge.
Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, said this while at the water cooler:
“E3 is always a very special moment when everyone in the entertainment business does their best to amaze and engage gamers. For Ubisoft’s teams, it’s a period of pride and of anxious anticipation because they are finally showing off the games they’ve poured so much passion into, and receiving feedback from players and peers. Our industry has evolved so much in the past 30 years, but what hasn’t changed is my love and respect for the limitless passion and talent of developers and players alike.”
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
