Ubisoft starts the show with a musical carnival filled with mascots, dancers and an orchestra. Just Dance 2019 is shown in colorful letters on the backdrop.
Beyond Good & Evil 2
The trailer show a Jade from the first game that is not very recognizable from the first game. The new trailer looked just as promising as the other things they have shown from the game earlier.
One of the big announcements during the E3 conference was that they open their arms for everyone that wish to contribute to making the game. In collaboration with HitRecord, you can get your own music, art or other ideas implemented into the game to make it truly unique.
Go to the HitRecord site to see what is needed.
Rainbow Six Siege
Rainbow Six Siege now has more than 35 million players and is going to focus a lot more on competitive games and e-sports in the future. A documentary about this has been made and will be released in the middle of August, but a short trailer was shown today.
The documentary is called “Another Mindset” and is a documentary about people getting into e-sports.
Can you get more american than driving into the arena on a bike, wearing a white suit with american stars? That’s how they announced Trials Rising.
“Crashing with style and getting up again.” was the message, and Trials Rising has been made with the help of the players, to make it as good as they possibly can.
From local backyard competitions to the biggest stadiums on the world stage, each player is the master of their own fate and must compete against other players as fully visualized ghosts or in real-time local and online multiplayer. Getting to the top of the leaderboard isn’t the only path to success: with the new Contracts feature, sponsors reward players as they progress through their career, with new challenges to achieve at every step.
Trials Rising also adds an exciting new Tandem Bike multiplayer mode for players to expand their coordination skills and ride with their friends. Two riders, one bike, looking for the perfect line on an over-the-top, action-packed track: surprises and hilarity to ensue!
Players will also have the freedom to customize their rider and bike gear with endless possibilities. Everybody can share their custom gear with the community and will earn in-game rewards when other players use them. Trials Rising hearkens back to the franchise’s roots and brings back the core gameplay fans know and love. Powered by the community’s feedback, the team crafted an always-on game that guarantees never-ending experiences.
A closed beta will be opened later this year, and you can sign up for beta access right here! Release date will be February 2019, PS4, Xbox one, PC and Switch
When you thought the game could not look any better, you get new content. Yes, I sound like a fanboy, but I don’t care. This looks so much deeper than “just” an action game. The story and the graphics looks so incredible, I can hardly wait.
This trailer is much darker and gruesome than previous trailers, showing the consequences the viral outbreak has had on the population.
New information about The Divsion 2 was released as well. They explained how specializations will affect your abilities and your signature weapons. You will unlock tools and special abilities so you can create your own personal play style.
Another really interesting piece of information was that they will create 8-people raids that you can participate in!
They have plans for content updates for several years to come, and year one will bring three major updates with new stories and content. All released for FREE, no season pass will be needed!
And we got some new gameplay to look at and enjoy.
Mario + Rabbids – Donkey Kong Adventures
In Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong Adventure, players will discover a new playable hero, Donkey Kong, showcased in a brand new story full of reinvented tactical gameplay, new enemies, and secrets to uncover.
Separated from her friends, Rabbid Peach will team up with two new heroes to save the day, the banana-loving hero Donkey Kong and the stubborn Rabbid Cranky. Together, they will embark on a journey across four brand-new environments and fight in a new epic battle against a vengeful Rabbid Kong who uses his new powers to take over a mysterious island.
Among the new gameplay to discover, players will turn the tide of battle with an arsenal of fresh abilities including Donkey Kong’s grab-and-throw skill that propels friends, foes, and cover stones, and Rabbid Cranky’s gift of shooting enemies mid-air.
The new team of heroes will confront powerful enemies and face off against massive and unpredictable bosses, including two Shark-Rabbid lieutenants who will do anything to achieve their Machiavellian goal.
This DLC will be available on 26th of June on Nintendo Switch
Skull & Bones
“In a dog-eat-dog world, we were wolves. And wolves hunt in packs”
Set in the Indian ocean, rich with merchants, Skull & Bones will make all pirate lovers tingle in their panties. Just have a look on the new trailer.
Introducing the Hunting Grounds, a shared world where every encounter matters. Cooperate with allies to bring down large ships and experience the thrill of naval battle. They showed us a gameplay video that will show you a little more what this game is going to be like.
Plunge into the experiment of a troubled scientist, a corrupted digital simulation of his family formed using their collective brain data. A Psychological thriller that can be experienced either on classic console or in Virtual Reality, this looks like an extremely interesting title
Transference will be released sometime in Fall 2018, and it looks really freaky. I am hoping this will be one of those titles that will stick in your head long after you stopped playing.
Starlink – Battle for Atlas
Starlink – Battle for Atlas will be released 16:th of October 2018
One of the main news is that Starfox will be incorperated into the game, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
Ubisoft is giving away For Honor for free from 11-18th of June and you can get your copy on Uplay
Introducing Marching Fire, an update scheduled for 16th of October 2018.
Available as part of the Marching Fire update are four new heroes of the Wu Lin – a new faction inspired by ancient Chinese martial arts. The four new heroes include the Tiandi, the Jiang Jun, the Nuxia and the Shaolin, who have traveled from the east to escape a civil war that has consumed their homeland following the cataclysm. Each consumed by their own motivations, ranging from betrayal to personal tragedies, these Wu Lin heroes bring a brand-new set of weaponry and fighting styles to add more versatility to the battlefield. All Wu Lin heroes can be recruited using in-game Steel following an initial exclusivity period.
Players will have access to the four warriors of the Wu Lin, alongside the existing roster of 18 heroes in a brand-new 4v4 PvP game mode, Breach. The mode will be free for all players and is playable across three new maps, allowing players to live the fantasy of storming or protecting a well-fortified castle armed with ballistae and cauldrons of fire as well as archers and a heavily armored ruler looking to protect his land. Attackers and defenders must strategically maneuver the battlefield as they escort or attempt to destroy a battering ram to gain access to the castle.
Marching Fire will also introduce new unlimited PvE content playable in single-player and two-player online co-op. This new PvE mode will be available as part of the paid bundle, which also includes the Wu Lin heroes. More details about the PvE content and the paid bundle will be revealed soon.
The update will introduce a new mode, “Breach”, a castle siege mode that looks quite amazing!

Similar to the full game that will be available June 29, open beta content will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform in four-player co-op, or in single-player.
