Insta-forum: What Do You Think About Ubisoft’s 2017 E3 Showing?

Ubisoft's Press Conference is out of the way, and with Mario, Assassin's Creed, and South Park on the stage, they had a strong line-up of games. How do you think they did?

It seems like only yesterday E3 2017 started, but we are already through a majority of the conferences — the lasted of which being Ubisoft. And among other third-party conferences, Ubisoft seemed the most focused on non-stop game action.

Starting with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle with a kid-friendly, but surprisingly deep looking tactical game, Ubisoft raced out of the gate with a game we all knew was going to be making the appearance. Along with this, the previously seen Assassin’s Creed: Origins got some much deserved screen time showing off some gorgeous landscapes. Oh, and how can we forget about The Crew 2?

Also, previously revealed South Park: The Fractured But Whole made a terrific appearance — this time focusing on a bit of gameplay. And that’s not even to mention South Park: Phone Destroyer — surely the Fallout Shelter of this E3.

But that isn’t to say new IP didn’t make appearances. A new toys-to-life title Starlink: Battle for Atlas showed face and a new open-world, multiplayer pirate game (all the rage, nowadays) called Skull and Bones was revealed.

And, looking as amazing as when it was first revealed, Far Cry 5 took center stage as a technical showcase with a ton of crazy gameplay. And the often-rumored Beyond Good & Evil 2 even made a show with a cinematic trailer with some high-octane action.

But from all the above, you can probably tell that I liked this conference — what about you? How does this show stack up against Electronic Arts’ and Bethesda’s? Did this have the strength of Microsoft’s conference?
