E3 2015: Watch the Ubisoft E3 2015 press conference here

Ubisoft is looking to bounce back from a rough 2014 by bringing a handful of new games to E3 2015, including Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Tom Clancy's The Division, and Rainbow Six Siege.

Next up for Day 0 of E3 2015 is Ubisoft, who are looking to bounce back from a rough 2014 that was mostly remembered for faceless assassins. But hey, that's all in the past and this year should hopefully be a better one for the Canadian publisher.

And the best way to point to a solid 2015 is with a whole lot of new games. Ubisoft has already confirmed the presence of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Tom Clancy's The Division, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. That should scratch the surface and pave the way for some other surprises. And if nothing else, the always-entertaining Aisha Tyler is stepping into the Danger Zone for another year, so that's a definite plus.

Ubisoft's event is set to kick off at 2:30PM PT/5:30PM ET. Check it out below and join the conversation in the official thread.

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      So everything is multiplayer? Except for South Park. I'm getting too old for this.

      Jesus, is it required for Twitch streamers to make horrible jokes while watching trailers and such? Watching Dropped Frames and it's just constant shitty sarcastic remarks from everyone but Dan that covers up everything the person is saying on the video. Then afterward they're like "WAIT WHATD THEY SAY", which covers up more audio from the trailer.

        Yeah, I was too excited at the time to remember we're on year 3 and I hope UbiSoft is past its buggy shitty games streak.
