Ubisoft is generally known to showcase great E3 events, and this year’s event appeared to display a great quantity of quality games coming out across various systems, including another look at some of the most anticipated games. Take a look below:
Beyond Good & Evil 2
A pleasant surprise to everyone, viewers got another glimpse at the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2. Though this is purely a cinematic trailer, Ubisoft showcased some returning characters, and provided a taste of what we can anticipate from the story. Ubisoft did showcase some minor pre-alpha gameplay on stage, though it’s hard to say how comparable this will be when the game actually launches.
No release date or consoles were announced at this time.
The latest entry in the Trials series was given a trailer during Ubisoft’s event, giving audiences a great look at what they can expect from Trials Rising. From this initial glimpse, it appears to be much in the same vein as its predecessors, with silly obstacle courses and ridiculous crashes.
Look for the game when it releases in February 2019 on PS4, PC, Switch, and Xbox One.
The Division 2
Ubisoft took time on stage to discuss The Division 2’s setting, and some gaemplay elements players can anticipate in the latest entry. According to the game’s creative director, the game will take place seven months after the first game’s initial viral outbreak. This sequel will include eight-player raids, and free episode DLC packs to introduce new areas, stories, and activities.
The Division 2 will release on March 19th, 2019, though no consoles were announced.
Mario & Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure DLC
After Ubisoft’s surprising success with Mario & Rabbids comes a follow-up campaign DLC titled Donkey Kong Adventure. The new DLC promises up to 10 hours of additional gameplay, following the simian through crazy rabbid-filled worlds.
Mario & Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure DLC releases June 26th, 2018 on Nintendo Switch.
Skull & Bones
It appears pirates are trending once again in media. Pirate game Skull & Bones is a shared online game where players can team up or fight against other players in real time pirate ship battles. The customizations offered make it appear more “pirate simulator” than Sea of Thieves, but it’s too early to tell how this game will perform.
Releasing 2019, though no consoles were announced.
Transferrence is a creepy narrative-focused VR project, handled through collaborations with Ubisoft Montreal and Elijah Wood’s production company. Not much is known beyond the trailer.
The game releases this Fall on Oculus, Vive, PSVR, and Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Saving the most anticipated announcement for last, Ubisoft revealed brand new gameplay footage from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Some notable takeaways include playing as either male or female, branching dialogue options which impacts the story, and pursue romantic options. It appears they’ve made some major improvements to this game, and we’re curious to see how the final game turns out.
