So the time has come for a bit for Ubisoft action. Everyone’s former favourite games company, who after the last few years have had a dodgy run with squeal after squeal, and poor release after poor release, with delay after delay. That’s not to say that they haven’t released some fantastic games over the last few years, but issues in recent memory may be causing people to look at Ubisoft with more than just a raised eyebrow.
Depending on the size and scope of the conferences at hand, we will be picking our Top picks of the briefing. This is just the picks from the conference, not the following days after/during E3
We decided that we would jump to a TOP 4 from Ubisofts showcase. I didn’t particularly like the celebrity this and that at the event, but if they are gamers at heart, what am I to say. It just felt at times that Ubisoft were trying to hard.
Anyway in no particular order, here are ItsMuchMore’s TOP 3 picks from the Ubisoft Conference.
I grew up when South Park started, and everyone loved it, but I just couldn’t get into it at all. I can laugh a bit more as the pop culture references now if I flick past an episode, but that’s about it.
I remember how good the first looked, in terms of ‘like the show’ and this looks no different. None actual gameplay graphics yet, but expect very much more of the same. It would be interesting if they stick with the same gameplay at Stick Of Truth, which I’m sure they will, but this time its all about the Superhero’s. Have a check of the trailer below, its awesome, and I’m sure once the game is released, it will be just as big of a hit as the first. First out of the bat by Ubisoft, one that no one was expecting, very good start.
Each trailer seems to be the same jist that’s coming out, with a little more trickling through every now and then, but we still need to get a feel for what really this game is all about. What’s the real story here, what happened, how are we going to try and resolve things. Why have these three been brought in to save hope, what happened to everyone else, WHY IS IT ALWAYS SNOWING!
I really want to play this game, and I want to play it now. There seems like this could have some potential for a lot of fun!
Again the trailer itself was put together really good, and graphically Ubisoft put that trailer together looking awesome, and I’m sure the gameplay with be very fun. This looks a mix of intense open world games and tactical third person shooter with elements of first person. Could even say a mix between The Devision and Just Cause. It would be interesting to see just how open world this is, how many players online, is this drop in drop out. No real details yet on the various other gameplay aspects, but I’m sure it will filter through in the coming months.
And that’s you’re lot here folks.
TrackMania Turbo, and the new Assassins Creed Syndicate were another two titles shown. Even though I do like TrackMania games, it really depends what they do at Ubisoft, as the game is all about customisation, and the various additional the host does on the map, its we’re limited to what Ubisoft chooses on the set up of the game, then that could be iffy.
Overall, it wasn’t a fantastic conference, and even though there were a few standout games, the celebrity presence, and the odd gameplay action were slightly a downer.
Still if you want to, check out the full conference below!
