By now, we’ve already seen what EA, Bethesda, and Microsoft have brought to the table for E3 2016. Now we finally get to hear from Ubisoft! Considering the wealth of surprises we got last year—like The Division‘s release date, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate footage, and even a special performance by Jason Derulo—this year’s presentation should be a good one. The only question now is: What will they show?
More Watch Dogs 2 footage and information is definitely in the cards, especially considering the game was officially unveiled a few days ago. Seeing more of the highly anticipated For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole, or DLC for The Division and Rainbow Six Siege, is also something we’re expecting.
As for surprises, who knows? Despite confirming that they wouldn’t be releasing an Assassin’s Creed game this year (our AC dose will come from the upcoming film), that doesn’t mean the studio won’t tease where the series is headed next. Another franchise we haven’t heard about in a while is Prince of Persia. And what about a potential Far Cry 5? We’d be down for that and whatever else Ubisoft has up their sleeves.
You can catch the live stream at the top of the page, and follow along with our live-blog below (keep refreshing for updates). Also, don’t forget to check out the press conferences we already live blogged for EA, Bethesda, and Microsoft, and make sure to tune in to the Sony briefing at 7 p.m. PT this evening..

2:48: This game is a mountain sports-enthusiast’s dream come true, snowboarding, skiing, parachuting and more! You’ll be able to rewind captured gameplay, pause, move the camera, and use slow-motion. You can also challenge your friends to a particularly difficult jump. We can’t wait to see all of the fail compilation videos once they hit YouTube (because they totally will).
2:45 PM: Share stunts, crashes, challenges and more in Steep. The game comes to you from Ubisoft Annecy. It’s a massive open-world game, partially set in the Alps. The view is absolutely breathtaking.

2:11 PM: For Honor gameplay looks brutal. The game launches February 14, 2017 (The same day as Persona 5). We know what we’ll be doing on Valentine’s Day!
2:07 PM: Vikings, knights, and samurai clearly don’t get along in this game and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

1:14 PM: Now to see how the gameplay actually looks. So far, so good. The graphics are lit.
1:10 PM: Dominic Butler, lead game designer, is out here to talk Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The question: What if a Mexican Cartel moved in, took over all of the resources, and turned Bolivia into a “narco state”? You know, just in case you wanted Narcos: The Game.
