E3 The Conferences - Ubisoft
A Ubisoft E3 press conference without Aisha Tyler hosting, can it work? What made the Ubisoft conference stand out in the past become a by the numbers reveal show. But were the games reveals any good?

A strong start, with Yves Guillemot and Shigeru Miyamoto sharing the stage to show off Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. A tactical RPG for the Nintendo Switch releasing on the 29th August.

Assassin's Creed: Origins got another trailer with a gameplay feature promised after the conference. No further information than had already been provided during Microsoft's conference was forthcoming.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole, The Crew 2, a new IP named Transference, and Road to the Olympics, an expansion for Steep, all received new trailers.

Skull & Bones, a new pirate themed naval adventure, was showcased with two trailers and a multiplayer demo. An open world, solo or team play and customisable ships were all discussed.
The annual Just Dance announcement came with a song and dance number, as is tradition.

Far Cry 5 showed off it's gameplay and a new cinematic. The story revolves around being trapped in an isolated region, surrounded by cult members. Only a cursory look at the gameplay was given, highlighting gunplay and the new companions.

Closing the show was the first full cinematic for Beyond Good and Evil 2. The game is set before the first, among a diverse society somewhere in a distant solar system. No gameplay was shown or a release date was given but you can go to the BGE website to register for the Space Monkey program, a place to "crash-test, discuss and inspire" the game.
