Miss any announcements from Ubisoft's E3 2016 press conference? Shack's got your back.


Between fractured but wholes and weird Trials/Blood Dragon mash-ups, Ubisoft had a number of surprises up its sleeve this year. Below, you'll find links and overviews for major announcements, as well as trailers to get you up to speed.

Watch Dogs 2 gets a new gameplay video

In this demo, Marcus Holloway and his Dedsec allies infiltrate the home of a social media mogul. In this mission, Dedsec is looking to expose the CEO of popular social media platform, !NViTE, who is using the citizens’ personal data to engineer a corrupt voting process.

Trials of the Blood Dragon announced, looks super-weird

Trials and Blood Dragon had a baby, baby.

Grow Home Enters 'Adolescence' With Grow Up

Eagle Flight Soared Onstage At Ubisoft's E3 Conference

South Park: The Fractured But Whole gets gameplay reveal

The story picks up where Stick of Truth left off. Kids playing superheroes. Your character will become a superhero and be able to choose your own special powers. You will join Cartman as The Coon, Butters as Professor Chaos, and Kenny as Mysterion. Also, PC Principal will be in the game.

Ghost Recon Wildlands coming next March

During their E3 2016 press conference, Ubisoft revealed more details about the open-world military game Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Just Dance 2017

Ubisoft started the conference with a rollicking dance routine from "Just Dance" featuring Queen's iconic "Don't Stop Me Now" and colorful cartoony animal costumes and a man playing a butterfly guitar. I suppose that's one way to kick off a conference. And then...Aisha Tyler to announce Just Dance 2017!

        Luckily the only Ubisoft game I will buy is the South Park game, and I'm not worried about the graphics in that one.

          Yeah honestly that will be the one I most likely get though Ghost Recon looks pretty awesome downgrade or not.

        That's some shameful shit. I'm guessing that snowboarding game won't look half as good.

        Also it wouldn't be so bad if their art styles weren't so bland. Watch dogs 2 and ghost recon looked like nothing special compared with Dishonored 2 or horizon zero dawn.

        They need to go more exaggerated like a saints row or infamous.
