Ubisoft E3 2015 conference live report

For Honor, Assassin's and a new Ghost Recon - Ubi wraps.

Well, that was something. Ubisoft's biggest games all seem to have melded into one shooty blancmange as its Tom Clancy universe takes in The Division, Rainbow Six and, now, a new gritty Ghost Recon that takes an open world and fills it with all sorts of nasty drug people. Catch all the news as it happened.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage
Hello hello hello! We're scheduled to go live at 10.45pm, but looking a little closer at Ubisoft's streams it seems more likely we'll see the stage show start at 11pm.

Martin Robinson

Fashionably late, as ever.

Martin Robinson

Toaster05: I hope Pele can make it. I could listen to that guy being a corporate shill all day long.

He has so many more amazing stories to share. I'm with you.

Martin Robinson

Anyone want to take a punt on what the show-stealing finale will be?

Martin Robinson

A new Prince of Persia? Beyond Good and Evil 2? SHENMUE 3.

Martin Robinson

dingo75: @Martin: as it's displayed on the YouTube outline. 11 PM

Yup, just spotted that - confirmed to start at 11pm. Thanks!

Martin Robinson

Just under five minutes to go, and actually a fairly entertaining pre-show show.

Martin Robinson

X201: and Twitch breaks again

It was a temporary outage while they swtiched over to the conference itself - should be back on its feet now.

Martin Robinson

I forgot about Watch Dogs 2. Did anyone else forget about Watch Dogs 2? That's a good shout for this conference at some point.

Martin Robinson

It's going to be fascinating watching a Ubisoft conference now they're leaning towards showing real, genuine gameplay and not the fluff that made up the Watch Dogs reveal way back when.

Martin Robinson

We're live. It's real. The time has come.

Martin Robinson

Straight into a reveal - a South Park: Stick of Truth sequel.

Martin Robinson

South Park: The Fractured But Whole. I loled.

Martin Robinson

Straight into the showbiz with Trey and Matt on the stage flanking Aisha.

Martin Robinson

Bringing a whole world of sass, which is so refreshing after EA. Man I'd love to see Pele join this mix.

Martin Robinson

So many swears too. Edgy Monday.

Martin Robinson

It's not Obsidian behind this one - it's Ubisoft San Francisco.

Martin Robinson

Addressing the criticisms head-on. She's stopping short of calling Yves a c**t though, though I wouldn't be surprised if she does at this rate.

Martin Robinson

Yvvvvvvvvvessss Gwillllllymot.

Martin Robinson

A new IP straight off. Is this the showstopper that's been brought forward?

Martin Robinson

It's got vikings. Knights. Bertie's having an aneurysm.

Martin Robinson

Also it's by Ubisoft Montreal. Also it's a CG trailer so cock knows what it actually is.

Martin Robinson

Rayza: This is the most ground breaking CGI i've seen in about 20 minutes

It's the most ambitious and innovative CGI I've seen today, for sure.

Martin Robinson

For Honor. Or For Honour. Oh god this is going to cause some headaches in the future.

Martin Robinson

Jason Vandenberg, who previously worked on Far Cry 3 (and apparently doesn't need that cane any more, but it's a good look so why not?)

Martin Robinson

He looks like Alan Moore scrubbed up a little for the boardroom.

Martin Robinson

We are going to see some gameplay.

Martin Robinson

Well, we're actually seeing some gameplay right now.

Martin Robinson

The animation is wonderful - really meaty combat. And it's like Chivalry, with some MOBA elements.

Martin Robinson

Really impactful sword fights. Am enjoying this. Will it look like that come release?

Martin Robinson

It's playable at E3, so we'll soon find out.

Martin Robinson

This one might be just for me - an expansion for The Crew.

Martin Robinson

It took time to get going, but there's a great game in The Crew beneath all the fluff.

Martin Robinson

The Crew Wild Run, which has a Motorstorm vibe to it. Coming out this November. Not quite sure what it actually is though...

Martin Robinson

Is this a horse?

Martin Robinson

It is a horse! Excellent. What horse is it though?

Martin Robinson

A horse that breathes fire! Wonderful.

Martin Robinson

I guess horses are coming to Trials Fusion. That's good news. I'll take that.

Martin Robinson

Oh, it's a unicorn. Yeah, I'll still take that.

Martin Robinson

It's time for a virus-ridden apocalyptic landscape. 'Yeeeeeeeah' goes the audience.

Martin Robinson

We'll also have more on this one at midnight tonight.

Martin Robinson

I can never tell if these voiceovers are in-game, or they expect us to believe people talk to each other like that when online.

Martin Robinson

Oh, it's fake? a) I'm really dim and b) that's kind of awful.

Martin Robinson

This is very much in-game, though, despite the fake chatter. And it has been confirmed that the car door shutting animation is still in, so that's all good.

Martin Robinson

Was that a rage quit?

Martin Robinson

Well, I still have faith in Massive to deliver, but I kind of want to play it now rather than sit through more demos.

Martin Robinson

Betas will be coming, but not 'til next year.

Martin Robinson

And we have a release date - March 8th next year, so not too far away.

Martin Robinson

Blue Byte is them what done The Settlers before.

Martin Robinson

Which has never really flown over here, but this grand scale city builder looks intriguing.

Martin Robinson

It's Anno 2025.

Martin Robinson

Aisha's in the crowd, which can only mean one thing. Laser tag!

Martin Robinson

Pulsar_t: Most of the audience never played an Anno game to begin with.

I never have, I'm afraid. I'm just confused right now by this extended Anno section.

Martin Robinson

Let's all make a meme! This is kind of atrocious.

Martin Robinson

Let's get Pele on to showcase Just Dance 2016.

Martin Robinson

I don't know who this is as I am old. Any help?

Martin Robinson

Pretty sure it's not Pele though.

Martin Robinson

Oh, it's Jason Derulo.

Martin Robinson

This singing is definitely not scripted. It's live. Which is something of a shame in this instance.

Martin Robinson

Jason Derulo's song will be in Just Dance 2016. I think that's what this is about.

Martin Robinson

Also there's a third party Wii U game coming out this year, which is pretty sweet.

Martin Robinson

Just Dance Unlimited is an on-demand, streaming service.

Martin Robinson

Gun time.

Martin Robinson

Rainbow Six Siege?

Martin Robinson

Yup, it's Rainbow Six Siege, though it could have been anything from that.

Martin Robinson

Are we getting Angela Bassett on stage? We are!

Martin Robinson

Not sure I'm into this theme of having celebrities being interviewed though. At least Pele had that story about his head being patted.

Martin Robinson

And again, we'll have more details at midnight on this.

Martin Robinson

Another live gameplay demo. Rehearsed and scripted, sure, but it's actual gameplay.

Martin Robinson

vert1go: This remote thing is basically squidmode.

It all goes back to Splatoon.

Martin Robinson

This might be sacrilege, but I think I prefer some of the CG/orchestrated stuff over watching men pretending to be playing games on stage.

Martin Robinson

Oh do shut up chaps.

Martin Robinson

That was a very chatty Rainbow Six Siege demo that confirms what we knew already - it's looking pretty hot.

Martin Robinson

The beta starts September 24th this year on all platforms - there's PvP and Terrorhunt.

Martin Robinson

Oli is reporting that there's some quite loud snoring coming from within the Ubisoft conference.

Martin Robinson

And now we have some Trackmania goodness.

Martin Robinson

I loved Trackmania 2 - well, I still love it - but I don't think the way it was delivered really helped it.

Martin Robinson

I can't actually tell if this is another Trackmania 2 expansion, or something all new - or even if this is a Nadeo game. It looks like an all-new spin on the series.

Martin Robinson

Well, that'll be my fault for not paying attention.

Martin Robinson

Here's that CG trailer we all really wanted instead of the gameplay reveal a few weeks back. It's set in Laaaaandaan, don't you know?

Martin Robinson

Oh no, the horses :-(

Martin Robinson

'cor blimey he's got 'imself in a right two and eight.

Martin Robinson

What I said earlier about missing CG trailers? I take it all back.

Martin Robinson

Assassin's Creed will be playable this year at E3, and they're also touring the game this summer.

Martin Robinson

Sammoore: still better than EA's

I miss Pele though.

Martin Robinson

Now we're heading into the finale.

Martin Robinson

The old Yves drop.

Martin Robinson

A new game, from a team in Paris.

Martin Robinson

It's got guns in it! Is it an all new Call of Juarez?

Martin Robinson

SHENMUE 3?

Martin Robinson

Or Just Cause. I thought that was Square's?

Martin Robinson

Wait, it actually does look like an open world Call of Juarez: The Cartel. Surely not?

Martin Robinson

somnolentsurfer: Well it's not Beyond Good and Evil 2, is it? :-(

Could be a gritty reboot.

Martin Robinson

Pan back to reveal a Rabbid.

Martin Robinson

The grittiest of all reboots, this one.

Martin Robinson

It's A Massive Open World!

Martin Robinson

Catchy name.

Martin Robinson

Oh, it's a Ghost Recon game. (It's really a Call of Juarez: The Cartel remake called A Massive Open World though).

Martin Robinson

That was quite an underwhelming climax, sadly, and not quite mental enough. Still, onwards!

Martin Robinson

Sony's up in just under two hours, if you're tough enough.

Martin Robinson

I certainly am, or at least will be after a few more coffees.
