Ubisoft @ E3 2015: The Division, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and "a few big surprises"

Ubisoft joins the likes of Bethesda, Microsoft, EA and Sony in having their own E3 2015 presentation. There they will be offering up details on what fans can expect to see, and just how to see them.

  • The conference starts at 3PM PDT / 10PM GMT on Monday 15th June.
  • You can stream the event live on YouTube using this link, or via Ubisoft's official Twitch channel.
  • All of the trailers and features displayed throughout the conference will be uploaded to Ubisoft's official YouTube channel here.
  • You can also head to Ubisoft.com which will act as a hub for all the above information on the day.
  • The conference will be hosted once again by actress and comedian Aisha Tyler.

E3 attendees will be lucky enough to go hands-on with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division. I believe this is the first time The Division will playable at an event like this, which indicates to me that the game will be featured heavily in the conference.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot praised the gaming community in a press release teasing a conference jam-packed with fan favourites, and a "few big surprises".

..."E3 is always a very special moment for the entire gaming community because we all come together to share our visions for the future of entertainment and reveal the games into which we've been pouring our energy and passion. The players' excitement and feedback when they first experience what we're developing is what motivates us the most.""We love being a part of this great community, and our talented teams continue to take risks, push boundaries and offer more freedom and choice within our games so that we can create long-lasting, enriching experiences for the players."...

I think there's a fair chance Watch Dogs 2 could be among Ubisoft's announcements, which is certain to include new information on Rainbow Six Siege, Assassin's Creed Syndicate and The Division. I'd also like to see a Child of Light sequel with a bit more ambition than its predecessor. Nothing would make me happier than an announcement that Ubisoft are dropping micro-transactions from the pause menus of its fully priced titles though.

The Division is a big contender for taking game of the show. However, with competition from the likes of Star Wars Battlefront and Fallout 4, the battle for supremacy will be fierce.

E3 begins with Bethesda's press conference on Sunday 14th of June (7PM PDT) and Windows Central will be on hand to bring you the game industry's biggest announcements throughout the week.
