Ubisoft has held its E3 2019 presentation and offered not just updates on some big games, but also revealed some key surprises – from Netflix acquiring “The Division” film to “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” creator Rob McElhenney spearheading a comedy series about game development titled “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” for Apple+.
One big new bit of news – Ubisoft is launching its own PC game subscription service called UPlay Plus. Costing $14.99 a month, it will get users access to more than 100 Ubisoft titles including DLC. That launches on September 3rd.
Game news wise, the big title on offer was “Watch Dogs Legion” – the post-Brexit dystopian London-set third game in the series in which you can assume control over virtually any character in the game which releases in March. Also teased was the next “Rainbow Six” game, this one a squad-based survival co-op FPS experience slated for next year.
Jon Bernthal came on stage to promote the new “Ghost Recon” title in which he plays the villain, another Tom Clancy title is a new mobile game called “Elite Squad,” while the colorful fighting game “Brawlhalla” gets some “Adventure Time” characters.
“Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” is getting a story creator which lets you design your own quests using a web-based tool – that’s out today for free in open beta. The creators of that game have also come up with a trailer for a game involving Ancient Greek mythical monsters.
