Ubisoft Press Conference E3 2018 Recap #DailyHotTake

All week long we are Live Tweeting the E3 2018 press conferences using the hashtag #DailyHotTake and compiling them all here on Top Shelf Gaming for your convenience. Read the best announcements from the Ubisoft press conference below and tell us what you think about our hot takes.

The Greatest Showman

Ubisoft knows how to party. Their shows are always very lively and fun. But where’s Aisha Tyler? #LadyWood

Beyond Good and Evil 2

Joseph Gordon Levitt partners with Ubisoft on Beyond Good and Evil 2

Hit RECord, JGL’s side project helps people collaborate with each to complete artistic endeavors like films or music records. While he didn’t mention this onstage, Hit RECord has allocated $50K for all of the music and additional art in the game. That’s not a lot of money for the work of what could be hundreds of people. While the idea that regular fans can make a lasting impression on the game, it’s possible we may see compensation creep into the limelight at a later date.

Trials Rising

The Division 2

The Division 2 is focusing on end game content this time around. It is no surprise that it will now have raids. This seems to be one of the many improvements that fans are going to get stoked about. It’s already shaping up to be a great game.

Mario + Rabbids Donkey DLC

Just a friendly reminder that if you haven’t played Mario + Rabbids, it’s a fantastic game that is good for both casual and hardcore players. It would be bananas to sleep on this one.

Skull & Bones

Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Starlink was one of the games we were least excited to see at the press conference, but leave it to Nintendo to bring the hype. With the surprise inclusion of Fox McCloud into the game and the even bigger surprise of Miyamoto himself attending the show, this became one of the standout segments of the entire presentation. Two Nintendo characters were featured prominently during Ubisoft’s show which makes us hopeful for many more collaborations in the future.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed games are a dime a dozen. Most players became fatigued at some point and have dropped away from the series. Last year’s AC introduced new RPG mechanics and a revamped combat system and achieved wide acclaim. Now, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, set in ancient Greece, builds on the foundation and does even more. After seeing this game running, we’re ready for some Greece lightning.

Safe and sound

Well, there you have it. This has been another E3 2018 edition of #DailyHotTake for Ubisoft’s Press Conference. There is a lot to be excited here and we can’t wait to get our hands on some of these games. You can watch us Tweet live through the other major conferences by following us @TopShelfGaming.
