Ghost Recon: Wildlands launching March 2017
Ubisoft kicked their E3 2016 show off with some highly anticipated Tom Clancy news, confirming that open-world shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PC in March 2017.
We got a look at 10 minutes of gameplay from Wildlands, showcasing a four player co-op mission. Take a look below.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole trailer debut, release date revealed
South Park creators Tray Parker and Matt Stone stopped by E3 to reveal the first trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Much like South Park: The Stick of Truth, players will once again take on the role of the "new kid". The game parodies Marvel's cinematic universe, with the story centering around alter-ego superheroes such as the Coon, Captain Chaos, Mysterion and more.
Pre-order The Fractured but Whole and receive a copy of The Stick of Truth on PS4, Xbox One or Steam. It's out December 6th.
Ubisoft reveals new IP 'Steep'
In one of the more surprising announcements from the show, Ubisoft revealed their brand new open-world action sports game, Steep.
Coming from Ubisoft Annecy, Steep will feature an open world that allows players to go skiing down mountains, glide in their wingsuits, parasail through the alps and more.
Players will encounter each other while playing, and compete using online leader boards.
Steep is scheduled for a December release, with a beta on the way soon. Check it out!
Watch Dogs 2 gets a gameplay trailer, Aiden Pearce movie on the way
It's no surprise that Watch Dogs 2 was one of Ubisoft's main focuses during the event, with the game already looking to be one of the year's biggest releases.
Watch Dogs 2 will have players finding their own way to experience the game, allowing you to decide what order you want to complete tasks in, and how you want to get the job done.
Ubisoft announced that they'll be working closely with PlayStation on the new game. Sony's Jim Ryan took to the stage to announce a Watch Dogs movie, which will follow to story of Aiden Pearce from the first game.
For Honor out February 2017, will feature co-op campaign
Ubisoft announced that For Honor will be getting a full story-based campaign when it releases on February 14th, 2017.
The campaign will be playable both in single-player mode or with a friend, with both split-screen and online co-op supported, a rare sight indeed in 2016.
An alpha test is on the way - you can register to take part now on their website.
Star Trek VR game announced
Arriving later this year, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be a VR experience that will put players aboard the USS Aegis in search of the Vulcan homeworld
Players will be required to work together in teams of up to 4 players to ensure that the ship is running smoothly, and tackle any challenges that come their way - including a run in with the nasty Klingon Empire.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is coming out on PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. LeVar Burton seems to like it.
