Ubisoft Wins Big At E3 2019 | Watch Dogs Legion | Rainbow Six Quarantine | Ghost Recon Breakpoint | More

Kicking off day 2 of E3 is Ubisoft, now this one shall be interesting as they have already said there is no Assassins Creed this year. Could we be seeing more on things like Watch Dogs 3 or a new Ghost Recon? It’s about time to see that now. They kicked off the show with a whole Symphony conducted to Assassins Creed music.

The trailer to kick off E3 is the trailer for Watch Dogs: Legion, the game seems to be based in a post-Brexit London. Now I didn’t like the first Watch Dogs game but the second was so much better than the first, so I am looking forward to seeing how this third game of the series goes down. Hopefully, it keeps up the good potential. Its gameplay seemed to be pretty more of the same from what we normally get in the franchise. The game seems to allow you to play as multiple characters though, which is awesome, once people die they are permanently dead and you have to switch to a new character. They seemed to heavily focus on this game so its definitely the big game for the year.

Watch Dogs trailers kept playing for a while and they showed more of the people that you have a chance to control and how everyone works differently. Also how when people die and how they affect the story if they die. I think this is actually a lovely touch. Easily the best character seems to be the old lady whose an ex-assassin. It finally ended by saying the game is coming March 6th, 2020

After this we had Rob McElhenney of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame show the new show Mythic Quest, which is about the development team of a huge MMO game. It’s done by much of the Always Sunny cast and it’s being assisted by Ubisoft to give it a more authentic touch. This show actually could be great and has been my favourite part of the conference so far.

This was then followed up by showing what is coming in Year 4 of Rainbow Six Siege; talking about new operators and showed a clip of the new season in action. This game’s had a strong following for years so its good to see it still getting support.

After this we got more showed for Brawlhalla ending out showing a Crossover between Adventure Time and Brawhalla which is definitely something that I didn’t see coming. Though the game seems to be doing pretty well for itself so it is good to keep adding stuff like that to it.

Then we got a trailer for the new Ghost Recon staring John Bernthal of The Walking Dead and The Punisher fame. The name of the game is Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, after the clip Bernthal was actually on stage to talk about the game.

They also announced Ghost Recon: Delta Company which allows the community to have help streaming and things such as that. Which certainly is never a bad thing either. The games beta goes live September 5th and the game comes out on October 4th. They also announced that there will be something to do with a Terminator in game.

Just Dance 2020 got a trailer too, which is crazy how big of a deal this game series is still to this day. It was a big thing to show off the 10th anniversary for the franchise as well; I will be honest, I thought the franchise was a bit older than that. The game’s still on Wii too, which is crazy that something is still being developed for the Wii given that its two generations ago now.

Next up was a trailer for an upcoming For Honor event, they actually did a pretty good job at saving that game from how poorly it was received at launch. So its good to see that the game is actually still alive and well. The event is called Shadows of Hotokiri.

We were then treated to a trailer for what looks to be a new horror game. Which is actually the new Rainbox Six coming up called Quarantine which seems to be a three-person co-op game, giving the vibes of the trailer it seemed to be a zombie based game.

The Division 2 seemed to be the next focus, showing more content that would be coming to the game because of its strong community. For this week from the 13th to the 16th, it will be free to play as well. Seems the big content update coming is based around adding way more new areas instead of just being around Washington. Seems it will be released in episode packs and they have already shown off parts of episodes 1, 2 and 3. They also showed that the Division Movie will be done with Netflix as well.

Ubisoft announces Uplay+ which is a new subscription service that allows people to have early access to Ubisoft’s catalogue on PC. The price will be 14.99 a month, which seems to be the common price and getting to be a bit much I think. Everyone is starting to get their own service which may oversaturate the market. We are already seeing this in tv and movie streaming services and games may be next to this way. It will even be available on Google Stadia, which makes sense since it was Ubisoft who have spoken out the most about streaming being the future of gaming.

Next trailer was for a Roller Derby game; this could actually be pretty fun if done right. The game is called Roller Champion, the game seems to be very team and PVP based, and the game has its demo launched. They then showed a gameplay trailer for it and it looks like it could be great if it’s not buggy that is.

Finally the Ubisoft CEO came on stage thanking all the teams for what they had to show throughout this conference and of course thanking the community. He then announced a new project that is based on old mythology. The game was called Gods and Monsters and it will be released Feb 2020. It had a pretty basic design, but that was it for the conference, and it was pretty good. Some awaited announcements and good additions to current games.

NETFLIX’S SHE-RA Season 2 Releases Next Week

Season 2 is just around the corner for She-Ra (Princess Adora) and the rest of the Princess Alliance, and the hype is steadily building. With such a strong opening to Netflix’s reboot of the 80’s nostalgic property She-Ra: Princess of Power, it’s no wonder that fans are excited about this new season and what it’ll bring. Along with a trailer that released a month ago, fans have also been given a plot synopsis for the upcoming seven episodes of the show:

“Firmly at the lead of the Princess Alliance, Adora embarks on a quest of self-discovery to learn more about her past and her future as She-Ra. With Catra rising the ranks of the Horde, the Rebellion must fight to thwart her next attack. “

This gives fans a lot to get excited about. For starters, it sounds like we’re going to see more of the Alliance fighting against the Horde, which should help make an interesting internal conflict for Adora since she’s originally from the Horde. Facing her old friends and allies, especially her old best friend Catra, will undoubtedly make for some great character drama and growth for our heroine. With Catra climbing higher and higher into the Horde’s ranks, taking on more responsibility, and Adora doing the same as the leader of the Alliance, it’ll be intriguing to see how their relationship changes through the course of this season, especially as they find more and more people relying on them. Lastly, there’s the question of what Adora will learn about her past. It sounds like she’s going to be separated from the rest of the group for a while as she journeys to learn more about what happened to her and her family, and just how she ended up under the care of the Horde. Whatever she learns, whether it’s good or bad, will doubtlessly help shape her into the leader and heroine she was always destined to become. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will release next week on April 26.

New TRANSFORMERS Series Coming to Netflix

It’s time for the Autobots to roll out again. Netflix has recently stated that they’re partnering to make a new Transformers animated series that will show fans the origin of Cybertron and of the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. Titled War for Cybertron, Netflix will be teaming up with Polygon Pictures (Transformers: Robots in Disguise) and the digital studio Rooster Teeth (RWBY) to make this new series. Rooster Teeth will help produce it, while Polygon will be the animation house working on the series.

 

F.J. DeSanto (Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as series showrunner, which makes sense considering he’s already been the showrunner for two other Transformers shows. The new series will also feature a new animation style that no other series has had before, which seems interesting since past iterations have run the gauntlet from 2D to 3D animation. So just how exactly the series will look, and even what it will be about; and which classic characters will return, remains to be seen.

 

Besides some tentative pieces of information, any real meat about this new project is sparse, but that’s to be expected since the show still seems to be in very early pre-production from the sound of it. DeSanto has had success with smaller Transformers animations on the Internet, but it’s yet to be seen if he can handle something as big as this. Also, Polygon Pictures did make Robots in Disguise, but since that series was released to lukewarm reactions there’s no real telling how they’ll do when making this new show for Netflix. All we do know for sure is that Netflix’s track record has been very good with animations, especially with their recent releases of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and The Dragon Prince. Heck, even Rooster Teeth has had moderate success with their anime-inspired action show RWBY, so their collective experiences making and supporting a long-running series could help make this new Transformers cartoon a surprise hit. Transformers: War for Cybertron releases in 2020.
