The big announcements from Ubisoft E3 2018
Posted by Ram Ronquillo June 12, 2018

Ubisoft has just finished their presentation at E3 2018 and from its established franchises to new titles, it was well rounded and had enough for everyone.

We put together some of the big announcements from their keynote. These are four games that are new, whether a sequel to an established franchise or a totally new game.

Before we get to that, we’d like to mention some of the other announcements. Some of these include a Donkey Kong DLC for Mario Rabbids, a new DLC for For Honor that introduces a Chinese faction, and a new cinematic trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Speaking of For Honor, the PC Starter Edition will be free to download for this week for PC users through UPLay.

Time to get to some of the games that piqued our interest in the Ubisoft E3 2018.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

While The Division 2 was featured in the Microsoft keynote, there weren’t many details that were given aside from it is set in Washington D.C.

One of the exciting details was new specialization system such as demolitionist, sharpshooter, and survivalist. Each open up a new progression system with skills, mods, and unique talents to maximize the efficiency in the role.

It will also get an eight-player Raid system, which will surely help the late game.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is set to be released on March 15, 2019.


Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Closing out the keynote was one of the biggest franchise from Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed. This time it’s set in Ancient Greece. This time around players will get to choose between two playable characters, Alexios and Kassandra. Unlike Syndicate, players can play only one character throughout the game.

It was also mentioned that this one pushes more towards being a full role-playing game experience. It seems like it will be about knowing more about the broken blade of Leonidas that the character is given early on in the story.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is set for release on October 5, 2018 and will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.


Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Starlink: Battle for Atlas was one of the games featured at E3 2017 highlighting the ability to change ships on the fly in real life.

This year they show more of the ships and the ships in action in-game. It is said to be set in the Atlas galaxy where players are meant to meet the different factions and assists the factions for allegiance.

One of the biggest surprises was the reveal of Star Fox which will be a Switch-exclusive character.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is set to be released on October 16, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.


Skull & Bones

Like Starlink, Skull & Bones was teased in E3 2017 and looked to be just another pirate game.

This year, they showed actual gameplay and it looks to be even more exciting than it looks. From setting up your own ship to sneaking about forts in order to attack a ship and actual combat, it seems to be a fun and gorgeous pirate game that you can play with friends.

Skull & Bones is set to be released in 2019.
