What follows is a bulletpoints roundup

Exciting surprise reveals this year were: Watch Dogs 3: Legion (despite news of it leaking early), Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, Just Dance 2020 (not that surprising), om Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine, Roller Champions, Gods & Monsters.
As well as The Division Movie and the Mythic Quest TV series about game development.
No word on Beyond Good & Evil 2 was a bit troubling, though.

Here’s the full E3 2019 Ubisoft broadcast video: (starts at 1:10:00 hour)

E3 2019 Ubisoft Press Conference Roundup:

  • The Assassin’s Creed Symphony opens the Ubishow. Get tickets at ACsymphony.com. Personally I think they should’ve tied this in with the a Assassin’s Creed game or closed the show with it, but it’s a slow opener.
  • Watch Dogs 3: Legion gameplay footage. Recruit a DedSec resistance to fight the Albion mercenaries that occupy London, UK. Bagley AI assistant guides you around. Main character Ian dies and an elderly hacker lady Helen takes over the gameplay as it’s revealed you can switch between all the resistance fighters. Naomi is up next as they try to free the drone expert, to get him to join the resistance, and along the way to find him they encounter heavily armed human traffickers and a firefight ensues. Everyone is welcome to join the resistance, looks like you can play as 100’s of characters (although they say you can play as anyone in the game) all with their own simulated stories! Wow! 😮
  • Mythic Quest TV series for Apple TV+ announced. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia comedy writers have partnered with Ubisoft for a game-centric TV show. Abed from Community also plays a role, so I’ll give it the 3-episode-test to see how I like it.
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege‘s new season update Operation Phantom Sight shown in a trailer.
  • Adventure Time comes to Brawlhalla today. Buddy new game mode. Tree Fort new stage. Free-to-play on PS4, Switch, PC & Xbox One.

Ghost Recon Delta Company is a community program that lets fan share discussion, artwork, etc. to directly get in touch with the development team of the game. September 5th, 2019 is the beta launch. October 4th, 2019 release date. The game will be live with new content and free updates for years to come (I assume only if it’s a success). The Terminator skin shown like on the Xbox conference.
