Ubisoft held their annual E3 2019 Press Conference on June 10th, 2019. The vast majority of the conference was dedicated to updates for their various M-rated games like The Division 2, For Honor, etc. There were a handful of announcements that families need to know.
Take a look below for five things parents need to know:
Just Dance 2020
Ubisoft announced their next iteration of Just Dance for all major platforms during the E3 2019 presentation. It continues to be a family friendly rhythm and dance game that combines popular music with controls and difficulties for a variety of play styles. The song list is being revealed as it gets closer to its November release date. Which internet and radio favorites will be immortalized into this family game? We look forward to telling you soon.
Adventure Time X Brawlhalla
Brawlhalla is a 2D Fighter available on all major platforms that attempts to capture the free for all aspects of Smash Ultimate, the weapon based combat of Samurai Showdown, notable inclusions of indy games like Shovel Knight, all while spelling out the stats of individual characters with an eye towards serious play. Their most recent expansion includes new playable characters and cosmetics from the hit animated series Adventure Time. Finn, Jake, and Princess Bubblegum are added to a roster of 30+ characters, as well as custom animations and effects for the entire cast inspired by the animated series. We find it a neat addition to Ubisoft’s rollout for the year, and are curious how this game will carve out its own niche in a crowded field.
Ubisoft announced a subscription service for PC (and eventually Google Stadia) that will grant access to the deluxe versions of all of their games as well as all of the DLC. The service will debut this September and will cost $14.99.
The cost may seem a bit high, but when you consider the cost of digital deluxe editions for Ubi games (and the DLC for those games) the numbers start to sound much more reasonable.
Ubisoft announced Roller Champions during their press conference. It’s a roller ball game that includes bright colors and fast action. I felt a distinct Rocket League vibe while I was watching the trailer.
Ubi released a demo for the game on the same day, so we should know more about the game soon.
Gods and Monsters
The team behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is definitely putting in extra hours at the office. God’s and Monsters is an action RPG focused on mythology that bears more than a passing resemblance to Breath of the Wild. We don’t know many details yet, aside from the the February 25, 2020, but we can’t wait to learn. This looks like it’s going to be one of the biggest surprises of the show!
