Ubisoft & Square E3 2018 Round-up
We were lucky enough to be at the Orpheum Theatre for Ubisoft’s Press Briefing where they showcased their upcoming games for 2018 and beyond. If you happened to miss this, or Square’s keynote earlier on in the day, or even just want to see some of those badass trailers again, fear not. We’ve got you covered right here!
Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Release date: 5th October 2018.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was Ubisoft’s highlight of the show and we got a meaty look at the game with brand new gameplay footage. This next entry in the Assassin’s series is shaping up to be one of the best! Pre-Order Now because we have the Exclusive Omega Edition!! We also have the Medusa Edition and the Gold Edition.
Ubisoft – Beyond Good & Evil 2
Release date: TBC
Revealed at last years E3, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a game that’s long overdue. We got just a glimpse of gameplay but were treated to an incredible cinematic trailer which was just, awesome. We’ve still a bit of a wait for this one unfortunately, but it looks like it’ll be worth it.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 looks great and will include original content in the game world from artists around the world. How cool! #UbiE3— GameStop Ireland @E3 (@GameStopIreland) June 11, 2018
Ubisoft – Skull & Bones
Release date: 2019
We got a look at both an eye catching cinematic trailer plus an exciting and action packed gameplay trailer for Ubisoft’s shared open world online Pirate game. This is one you should keep yaaar eye on.
Ubisoft – Transference
Release date: Autumn 2018
Elijah Wood came on stage midway through Ubisofts keynote to introduce his mind bending VR thriller, Transference. We do love a good thriller, so we’ll be checking this out when it arrives later this year.
Elijiah Wood just took the stage to introduce “Transference”, a VR horror game out later this year. Looks very interesting! Not sure how much sleep I’m gonna get after playing it though...— GameStop Ireland @E3 (@GameStopIreland) June 11, 2018
Ubisoft – Starlink
Release date: 16th October 2018.
This was the one that probably got the biggest cheer of the afternoon. In another Nintendo/Ubisoft crossover, the legendary Fox McCloud will be coming to the Nintendo Switch version of StarLink as a playable character! How cool is that!
Square Enix – Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Release date: 14th September 2018.
We’ve loved the Tomb Raider games since the originals way back when, but these latest outings for Lara have been on another level. Shadow of the Tomb Raider looks a whole lot stealthier than the two before, but with a lack of games in this genre these days, and our love for them, this is one of our most anticipated games of 2018.
Square Enix – Just Cause 4
Release date: 4th December 2018.
Just Cause 4 was revealed at the Microsoft keynote yesterday, but today we got an even better look at the game. Set in a fictional South American country, the game will change severely as the weather changes and will affect your gameplay in a big way. The over the top action we’ve come to know and love from a Just Cause game just got a whole lot more extreme.
Square Enix – Babylon’s Fall
Release date: TBC
We didn’t get much details about the game at all, but you can see the trailer here…
