I just finished watching Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference and I was completely surprised/shocked by how much I enjoyed a couple of their game presentations. After the horrendously boring Microsoft and EA pressers, I was getting worried about this year’s E3. I was beginning to think Sony or Nintendo would have to save this year’s show… But Ubisoft seems to have taken care of that.
The best title by far (so far) at E3 has to be Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. This game came out of nowhere and totally blew me away. It wasn’t because the game is set in Chicago… But man, the city sure did look amazing in the demo. The game looks to be a science fiction story set in somewhat modern times– while also kinda crossing into cyberpunk territory.
Down below you’ll find the Watch Dogs trailer and demo… Which kept getting better and better the more I watched it. In some ways, the end was the most interesting part. It leaves a lot of questions about how the game will play… But it also got me excited enough that I want to keep up with news for the game.
The other game at the press conference that looks somewhat exceptional is Assassin’s Creed III. This IP has been on my radar ever since it came out but for some reason I never got around to buying or playing them. The demo and trailer for AC3 makes me want to change that. I know one of my brothers is a huge fan of the series so I’m going to borrow his copies as soon as I get the chance.
All the trailers and demos can be found after the jump.
