E3 2017 Roundup: Ubisoft Edition!

E3 2017 Roundup: Ubisoft Edition!

As one of the last major press conferences of E3 2017, Sony has aired their briefing and with it came a lot of surprises and first looks at highly anticipated games.

Ubisoft's E3 keynote was lengthy and filled with great gaming announcements, so you can expect to see something similar for E3 2017.

Sony's conference will take place on tonight (Monday 12 June) at 2am United Kingdom time (6pm PST) which can be streamed live on Twitch.

2014 also saw the release of South Park: The Stick of Truth, a single-player role-playing game set in the South Park universe mixed with fantasy elements.

Another pirate game. It's the year of the pirates apparently. Pop singer Bebe Rexha performed her single The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody) onstage to announce Just Dance 2018, with an October release window.

Alongside the announcement of the Xbox One X, Microsoft also revealed Assassins Creed Origins, Forza 7, Crackdown 3 and Bioware's Anthem. Here's everything we learned about the games we're most hyped for... Exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, it's due in August. Racing in iconic locations found in the US, the debut footage of The Crew 2 was exciting and thrilling.

The Evil Within 2 has been given a Friday The 13th October 2017 release date.

Ubisoft also introduced Starlink: Battle For Atlas with an intriguing trailer that highlighted the integration with physical collectible items.

Players will need to "raise hell" to over through the cult that has overrun the area and we got a tasty look at some game play footage that you can check out below. Elijah Wood and his production company SpectreVision tried to sell us on a VR game called Transference that seemed like Get Out for white people.

This game will surely test the graphics of the Xbox One depicting much larger open environments with multiple routes of exploration. It's nearly like the naval combat of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag has been spun off into its own game, and that's definitely not a bad thing.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is happening indeed, and developers had a long cinematic trailer to confirm it.

Pirates have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity in recent years, with Ubisoft's own Assassin's Creed: Black Flag doing quite a bit to convince audiences that pirates really are cool.

However, it would seem as if Sony couldn't get its hands on working titles to show off at E3 2017, a move that proves the organization made a bad decision. The open world extreme sports title expansion will be titled "Road to the Olympics" and will be available December 5th. The reveal of Beyond Good and Evil 2 overshadowed nearly everything else they showed. It just would have been nice to see something from The Last of Us Part 2 or Death Stranding. There's a promise of 30 minutes of actual gameplay right after the show.

Of course Far Cry had to be at the conference and this time we get a pretty good look at the gameplay mechanics and the environments.
