  • Text: Jon Calvin

The Ubisoft E3 press conference delivered a whole host of interesting footage from some of its new and upcoming titles. Just in case you missed it we've compiled all of the details and articles below, so you can get a feel for the key points showcased in the talk.

Ubisoft kicked off the show with a look at Mario & Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, the new Ubisoft and Nintendo crossover that will be exclusive to the Switch. The title was introduced Shigeru Miyamoto himself and is set to release on August 29.

Next, we got an extended look at the new Assassin's Creed Origins. Ubisoft's latest offering will take you back to the golden sands of Egypt, when the Assassin's Brotherhood was finding its murderous feet.

The Crew 2 was revealed with a new trailer, which happened to include boats and even planes, because, you know, cars are so last season.

We got another look at South Park: The Fractured But Whole, a sequel to 2014's A Stick of Truth. Oh, and they also announced a new South Park-themed mobile game called Phone Destroyer.

Ubisoft unveiled a new pirate themed IP called Skull and Bones. Calling the title the "ultimate pirate experience" the combat seems reminiscent of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's naval warfare.

Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood introduced Ubisoft's next title, an intriguing new VR game called Transference. This experimental new title boasts that "you can for the first time as a player feel like you are in a movie."

The Ubisoft E3 Press Conference wouldn't be the same without a Just Dance reveal and this year did not disappoint. The game was introduced with a performance from rising singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is the latest toys-to-life game and another new IP from Ubisoft. The game involves peripherals that attach to your controller to form your ship with changes appearing instantly in-game.

Looks like Steep will be getting some new DLC. The Winter Olympics-themed expansion will be available on December 5 and will be winter sports-themed, so you know what to expect.

Far Cry 5 was one of Ubisoft's most anticipated announcements of the conference and it didn't disappoint with its three-minute gameplay reveal. The trailer showed a number of gameplay mechanics and confirmed co-op will be in the game.

It seems that Ubisoft saved the best for last, finally unveiling a follow-up to 2003's Beyond Good & Evil with a stunning trailer at the end of the conference. Beyond Good and Evil 2 promises a cast of "crazy and unforgettable characters" that are fighting for freedom in the stars in what looks like a fascinating universe.

So there you have it, that was everything Ubisoft had to show us this year. Stay tuned to Gamereactor for more news on E3.
