Ubisoft's E3 2018 conference may be over, but we're still mulling over all of the epic reveals that made their way center stage.

The leaks continue to roll out ahead of E3 reveals, with Assassin's Creed Odyssey yet again being caught in the center of them. Gameplay is great, but when you follow up a five minute parade sequence for Just Dance 2019 with lengthy clips and no concrete release info (Skull and Bones) other than a 2019 window - patience levels crack. This does not prevent us from covering titles exhibited by other publishers, nor does it hinder us from providing honest impressions about Ubisoft's show line-up. There will be four new zones featured in the DLC, and there will be entirely new gameplay elements introduced as well. "We didn't want it to feel like you were choosing a blank slate, that's not what we wanted, because the main character of the Assassin's Creed brand has always been an iconic figure and we wanted to keep it that way, even though we're giving you a choice".

Rainbow Six: Siege announced it now has 35 million players. Taking to ancient Greece, set before the events of Origins, this game predates the brotherhood and divulges the secrets of the First Civilization and how the progression began to what we ultimately know now as the Creed.

Players can create their own character and get to go adventure in the open-world of outer space. Trials Rising is the next addition to the franchise with a bigger than ever world and new graphics.

A beta is still planned sometime before release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.


In terms of what to expect, Ubisoft will nearly certainly reveal more gameplay from its biggest franchises.

There will be a dialogue system that stresses the importance of choice, allowing you to pick whichever option you'd like that has clear consequences.

You can catch all the announcements at Ubisoft's YouTube channel as well as its Twitch channel.

We're seeing Ubisoft expand more and more into the games as a service model, and we expect that to be part of the focus of this year's showcase, too. Those expansions will become later after its release and will be completely free.
