Ubisoft annual E3 keynote included some stellar games this year. The publisher dropped new information on their top-performing franchises, such Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbow Six, along with announcing a TV show, film and a new PC subscription service. Here are all the biggest highlights of the conference:
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Gets A Story Creator Mode
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will be getting some very cool features in the future. It will be getting a story creator mode, which will essentially let you design your very own quests using a web-based tool. It’s available today for free in open beta. It will also be getting a discovery mode later this year, which seems to look identical to the educational mode in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
Watch Dogs Legion Will Release Next Year And Allows You To Play As Anyone
The game may have been leaked before the event, but that didn’t take away from the reveal. Watch Dogs Legion showed us how players will be able to assume control of virtually any character in the game. The game’s setting will be shifting from the USA to a near-future post-Brexit London. Watch Dogs Legion will launch on 6 March 2020.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Brings Jon Bernthal and AI Squadmates
We gained more information about the upcoming Ghost Recon: Breakpoint as Punisher star Jon Bernthal came out to promote the title. The actor will be playing an important role in the game. It was also announced that the title will feature AI squadmates in the event you want to play the game solo. There was also a teaser for some Terminator content in the future.
