E3 2014 Ubisoft - What we should expect

Published: June 6, 2014 9:00 AM /



With E3 coming next week, we here at TechRaptor thought we would show you what we expect to see from the major publishers. Let's look at Ubisoft. Their press conference is June 9 at 3:00pm PDT. At E3 2014 Ubisoft has already got some things in the works, but they are usually good about having a surprise or two. Last year we saw The Division for example.

First, the big new announcement was Far Cry 4. There is no doubt that we will see some more about the game then. Maybe we will we get a glimpse into the setting, and maybe we will learn more about the villain, who likely graces the image that Ubisoft showed us. They have a lot to live up to with Vaas as their previous villain. Too hard to speculate about it, but I doubt we'll get any significant information about the game, like gameplay or release window.

The obligatory look at Just Dance 2015 will likely take place. And it will probably be really hard to watch.

As mentioned a moment ago, we should fully expect to see some more information about Tom Clancy's The Division. With the amazing footage we saw last year, we should fully expect to see some more. It will probably be graphically amazing again and will blow all our minds. But, we have to remember to temper our expectations and understand that what we see at E3 almost always looks much better than what we get. Especially with Ubisoft. Just look at Watch Dogs.

Many people may have forgot about this game, but Ubisoft will probably talk about The Crew. That is their racing game where you can drive through what Ubisoft promised is the entire United States. We'll see. The goal of the game is to complete objectives and missions with the aim of taking down some kind of criminal organization. You can form "crews" to do it or do it alone.

Ubisoft also has had Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots in the works for awhile now. We saw some of the game awhile ago but it was pushed back to this generation. With so little said about it, other than it is under development, we could very well see something here.

They usually do something with Rabbids during E3 as well, whether it be a game or not. I wouldn't be surprised to hear something about them.

Again, Ubisoft is pretty good at throwing out something cool and new. Who knows what it will be and we will all just have to wait and see.
