E3 2017: All the Ubisoft announcements!
Here’s all the details about Ubisoft conference at E3 – Electronic Entertainment Expo, in Los Angeles!
ASSASSIN’S CREED ORIGINS: WELCOME TO ANCIENT EGYPT
Set amid the pyramids, oases, and cultural upheaval of Ancient Egypt, Assassin’s Creed Origins is the first entry in the franchise to take place earlier than its predecessors, at a time when what we now know as the Assassin Brotherhood was in its infancy.
Combat, exploration, and even the way missions are structured have all been overhauled and reinvented, creating an experience that – while unmistakably Assassin’s Creed – represents a whole new beginning for the series. Assassin’s Creed Origins is a world not of elaborate gadgets and strange technologies, but of gods, mystery, and freedom.
Assassin’s Creed Origins will be released at the launch of Xbox One X and on October 27 for Xbox One, PS4, PS4 Pro, and PC, and will be playable in the Ubisoft booth during E3 2017.
UBISOFT AND NINTENDO TEAM UP TO BRING TWO ICONIC FRANCHISES TOGETHER IN MARIO + RABBIDS KINGDOM BATTLE
Ubisoft and Nintendo announced a partnership to bring a brand new adventure to life featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi, and four Rabbids heroes: Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Yoshi.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the story of an unexpected encounter between the most famous video game character, Mario, and the irreverent and chaotic Rabbids as they join forces to restore the Mushroom Kingdom, which has been torn apart by a mysterious vortex.
Mario and his friends will use hundreds of never-before-seen weapons to strategically take out enemies in true Rabbids style – with the occasional well-timed misfire. Players will use turn-based combat to strategically move their heroes across the battlefield to gain higher ground, utilize the pipe system and destructible environments, and receive a friendly boost from their teammates to get into their optimal firing position. Utilizing combat tactics and the cover system, players will explore the four unique worlds with their team of heroes defeating foes, gathering collectibles and solving puzzles along their quest.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be available exclusively for Nintendo Switch on August 29.

Skull & Bones is an online naval game that will take players across a dynamic, shared open-ocean that reacts to their actions and evolves to continuously challenge them. Building upon the studio’s naval gameplay expertise, Skull & Bones introduces an innovative wind system that gives gamers tactical opportunities to navigate more quickly, shoot further, hit harder, escape deadly blows, and position themselves to decimate their victims. Gamers will also be able to build their own fleet of ships, which can specialize in different battle conditions using the game’s extensive customization options.
