Company Shows It Is Still Powering Forward
Between Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and now Watch Dogs, Ubisoft has a stable of some of the most popular franchises on the market, and the company didn’t disappoint with another huge showing at E3 this year.
A new version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six highlighted game publisher Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 on Monday afternoon, which had plenty of top-selling franchises if comparatively few big surprises.
The demonstration of Rainbow Six: Siege showed two groups of five players each — one attempting to defend a hostage inside a suburban house, and another attempting to extract the hostage from the house. The players with the captive could barricade doors and windows and set up massive shields, while the players on offense could use drones to spy on the enemy, then attempt to blow up the walls, floors and ceilings of the house to get the drop on them.
Ubisoft released 9 new games for the upcoming year and beyond at the E3 conference with a trailer for each game.
