So Ubisoft had their conference and it was filled with a lot of content. From my personal point of view, there were some very cool stuff (I’m excited to see Assassin’s Creed Odyssey) and some not so cool stuff (Just Dance 2019 just go away). So here’s the breakdown of what was announced.

That was a lot of games and you can definitely say Ubisoft cater to everyone because there is at least one game there for a gamer. Was there anything mindblowing? No, but it was decent and they are constants that bring audiences back. Let us know in the comments below what tickled your fancy and if any news about For Honor interests you because I’m personally surprised it’s still going.
