All the news from Ubisoft at E3 2017
Ubisoft brings a couple of big surprises to the E3 stage.
Ubisoft didn't pull many punches in this year's E3 presentation - bringing one of their most stacked game rosters in recent memory with them when they took to the stage last night. We've got the play-by-play here, so kick back and enjoy some nice trailers.
Mario + Rabbids is coming this August
Ubisoft opened the show with one of the worst kept secrets of the year, showing the official announcement trailer for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, with a little help from a friend...
Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto made an appearance to officially reveal the new Switch title, which is a turn-based adventure-RPG mash-up of Nintendo's iconic Mario universe and the popular Ubisoft Rabbids games.
The press release explains how something like this could happen; "The Mushroom Kingdom has been torn apart by a mysterious vortex, transporting the Rabbids into the once-peaceful area, splintering this beloved land. To bring order back to the Kingdom, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi team up with Rabbids heroes in a journey through four different worlds."
It's out in August exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
Beyond Good & Evil 2 is real, gets stunning reveal trailer
It finally happened - Beyond Good & Evil 2 was officially revealed during Ubisoft's E3 showcase.
One of the most anticipated sequels ever, Beyond Good & Evil 2 had become a bit of an in-joke to the E3 audience, who were doubtful that the game would ever see the light of day.
It's not a direct follow-up to the original PS2 game, and is actually a prequel and referred to as more of a "spiritual successor" - which means we can expect a new gameplay direction. No gameplay was shown, but the reveal trailer alone should be enough to get you pumped.
New Pirate game on the way from Assassin's Creed: Black Flag developers
Skull And Bones, Ubisoft's newest IP, was previewed for the first time yesterday at E3.
It's an open-world pirate game with co-op and multiplayer, in development at Ubisoft Singapore, the team behind the very successful Assassin's Creed: Black Flag.
Take a look at the game's main features:
- Customize Your Pirate Experience: Choose your captain, recruit your crew and build deadly ships
- Naval Combat Redefined: Use your weapons, spyglass and even the wind to stalk and destroy your prey
- Play Solo or Coop: Raid the Hunting Grounds alone or group with other players to hunt larger prey
- Explosive Multiplayer: Enter the Disputed Waters and fight for supremacy in a variety of game modes
Far Cry 5 gets a gameplay trailer

One of the big games for Ubisoft this E3, the gameplay trailer focuses mainly on the importance of working together within the game - whether with your friends in co-op or NPCs.
Get your first introduction to the game's cast, new weapons and range of vehicles in the gameplay trailer and let us know what you think.
Cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed Origins released
It may not be the first we've seen from the game at this year's E3, with Assassin's Creed Origins featuring very heavily in Microsoft's presentation, but we just cant get enough of it.
Titled The Mysteries of Egypt, the new trailer promises that players can explore Origins the way they want to - "uncover lost tombs, explore the Great Pyramids, and discover the secrets of mummies, the gods, and the last Pharaohs".
It's looking like a strong return to one of Ubisoft's greatest franchises.
New gameplay footage from South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Take a look at the next South Park game in the latest trailer directly from E3.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole's latest trailer gives us a look at some of the game's superheroes, superpowers and how you will fit into the franchise wars.
It's out in October on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The Crew 2 introduces planes and boats to series
You won't be short on things to do in The Crew 2, by the looks of it. In addition to a huge range of cars, bikes, and off-road vehicles, The Crew 2 adds boats and planes to the line-up.
The Crew 2 is set to launch in early 2018, and builds on the massive open-world racing power of the original Crew game.
