The Ubisoft E3 press conference just happened. That was actually pretty interesting! We saw new footage of Watch Dogs Legion and new games like Gods and Monsters and Roller Champions were announced.
Ubisoft also detailed a new subscription program for PC, Uplay Plus, which will give players access to brand new Ubisoft games on launch. The service also offers access to premium DLC and other extra content, including premium editions, for only $14.99 each month.
This includes new releases later this year, such as Watch Dogs: Legion and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, along with existing Ubisoft games; the publisher said 100 games will be available at launch.
After a year of numerous leaks, today, during its E3 presser, Ubisoft finally revealed Watch Dogs Legion, which is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC next year on March 6, 2020. At the moment of publishing, there’s been no word of a Nintendo Switch port, but we do have a debut trailer to accompany the announcement showing what looks like easily the most ambitious entry in the series yet.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is in development for PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC, and is poised to release worldwide on October 5, 2019. At the moment of publishing, there’s been no word of a Nintendo Switch port, which seems unlikely at this point.
Revealed at the Ubisoft E3 2019 Press Conference, Jake the dog, Finn the human, and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time is heading to Ubisoft’s cartoony fighter, Brawlhala.
Alongside the reveal was a trailer showcasing the three characters, as well as the new stage Tree Fort based on Jake and Finn’s home from the show. Looking a bit more closely you can also see Princess Bubblegum’s kingdom and the Ice King’s Ice Kingdom.
Brawlhalla is free-to-play and is available now for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
The Rainbow Operators will face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite infecting human hosts and their surroundings.

Outbreak was a limited-time mode in Rainbow Six Siege that debuted in March 2018. It featured only three maps, and was unanimously loved by Siege players and newcomers alike. It looks like Ubisoft, too, liked it, seeing as it has decided to spin it off into its own game
Uplay+ will launch on September 3, and signing up before August 15 will get you a free trial period through September 30.

Ubisoft announced a new free-to-play 3v3 competitive game called Roller Champions during its E3 2019 press conference. It’s set to release early 2020 on PC, but a playable pre-alpha demo is available on Uplay for Windows PC, from now through June 14 at 6 AM PT.
“Gods and Monsters is a tale of mythology, but we often confuse mythology and fantasy,” Dumont explained. “Mythology is not fantasy. Mythology is cautionary tales and lessons and philosophy that’s been given in an oral tradition earlier on, from generation to generation for over 3,000 years, and now it’s coming back to us, right? So it’s still something that we can relate to. We always say, ‘I’m strong like Hercules,’ or things like that. It comes from that place. It is a foundation of how we view the world today, so there’s a little bit of a difference here so that we are basing it on things that are the foundation of Western civilization.”
