E3 2019 Expo Ubisoft Conference Summary

This year's Ubisoft conference on E3 2019 did not bring too many exciting announcements to the players. The biggest one was Watch Dogs: Legion, a new installment of the popular series of sandbox action games. In addition, the publisher focused mainly on already released and announced productions.

This year's Ubisoft conference was another important event, after EA Play and presentations of Microsoft and Bethesda, accompanying the beginning of the E3 2019 fair. The event began with strong accents - a spectacular live concert of tracks from the soundtrack of the Assassin's Creed series, as well as the announcement of the third installment of the Watch Dogs series. Shortly afterwards, it became clear that this time the French giant didn't have much exciting news to offer the players. The event was dominated by information on new expansions and updates for release games, such as For Honor or Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.

Watch Dogs: Legion

At the opening of the conference, Ubisoft presented the Watch Dogs: Legion, which we heard about a few days ago due to leaks and rumours. The plot of the title takes place in the near future in London, controlled by an authoritarian regime. During the game, players take on the role of various members of the DeadSec organization, known from the previous installments of the series, fighting against the omnipresent oppression of the police and the government. The creators promise that we will be able to expand our resistance movement with every Londoner we meet, and then control them directly during the mission. The gameplay fragment showed us not only stealth elements and shootouts, but also new gadgets that we will use to divert attention and bring chaos into the ranks of our enemies. Watch Dogs: Legion will debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PC version of the game is to use advanced technologies, led by ray tracing.
