WATCH DOGS 2, FOR HONOR, THE DIVISION, and the Rest of the Ubisoft E3 Trailers

We’re nearing the end of day two of E3 2016 and we’ve already got a veritable smorgasbord of gameplay footage, new trailers, and exciting announcements from our favorite gaming studios. One such studio: Ubisoft, who not only gave us the amazing Star Trek: Bridge Crew and South Park: Fractured But Whole trailers, but a slew of other new and sequel titles we’re very excited about. So why not round ’em all up and go over each of them, shall we? What better place than here, what better time than now?

Watch Dogs 2

Now, in addition to the gameplay we got—see above—the new trailer for Watch Dogs 2 tells us a bit more about Marcus Holloway and his Mr. Robot-esque team, dedsec, take down the nefarious types trying to run (and ruin) things in a beautifully rendered iteration of San Francisco after ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking city infrastructure, was implemented to create a safer, more efficient metropolis. It’s a badass trailer with humor, impressive movement, and Marcus’ incredibly useful parkour skills that makes us real excited for the game.

Trials of the Blood Dragon

Giving us seriously amazing 90s/Saved By the Bell vibes, Trials of the Blood Dragon is single player game with a TON of flipping vehicles, and “competitive, physics-based Trials gameplay.” The sense of humor this trailer has is enough to rocket it up pretty high atop our to-play list. Especially BECAUSE DRAGONS I MEAN DUH AND OBVIOUSLY.


For the extreme winter sports enthusiasts, Steep is sure to delight based on the trailer (above) and the gameplay (below), which features a lot of very impressive athletes discussing the draw of their respective sports as the open world of the Alps and Alaska flies out in front of you. We are equal parts terrified and thrilled by the idea of being able to zip around the earth like a flying squirrel without all the risk of, y’know, being an actual flying squirrel.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

MAN Ubisoft’s visuals are impressive. I had to mentally note that the leaves in the beginning of the trailer (above) weren’t real because my eyes couldn’t believe it. Watching the gameplay of it all doesn’t really help ocular matters, either:

Following the Santa Blanca Cartel that controls the Wildlands and its people, the Ghost Recon team are on a mission to disrupt the organization’s grip on Bolivia when the game releases on March 7, 2017. In the meantime, we’ve got even more gameplay than we know what to do with, so check it out. The stuff with El Pozolero—aka the stew-maker—is pretty gruesome stuff:

Tom Clancy’s The Division

They’re taking the fight underground to our regrouped enemies in The Division and based on the two trailers—above for Expansion 1 and Expansion 2 below—this one’s gonna be hanging around your console for a minute. We can’t stop staring at the gameplay footage, given how well-rendered it all is—I mean, the fighting, the details, the players. Be it in survival mode or underground, it’s all just so cool looking, jeez!

Grow Up

Well now this one just looks adorably joyful, doesn’t it? Grow Up follows BUD, “an adorable yet clumsy, stumbling, tumbling robot” whose fantastical, acrobatic adventures take him places like a spaceship wreckage scattered across an entire planet of abundant alien flora and thrusting star plants, a distant moon, and challenges aplenty. This one sounds cute and fun, no?

For Honor

Going full batshit-insane-in-the-best-way on us, For Honor pits three of the most iconic and brutal fighters of history—knights, Vikings, and samurais—against one another in the greatest war the world has ever known, unending and impressive as it is. But don’t just take our word for it, check out the gameplay below to really bask in its impressive multiplayer glory:
