Ubisoft is heading to Gamescom 2016 just like every other top publisher and this time they have some cool games in their lineup.
If you are a die-hard fan of the Assassin’s Creed or the Splinter Cell franchise, this isn’t the place to be. The developers released a teaser video that showcases some of the titles they have planned for Gamescom launch. While these titles are already familiar to gamers, you will have the opportunity to play demos on Playstation 4 and Xbox One console.
Right next to the Electronic Entertainment Expo E3, the Gamescom 2016 about to take place is one of the biggest gaming events in the world. Many publishers who couldn’t hog the limelight at E3 due to it being dominated by Microsoft and Sony prefer to showcase their best titles in here. This year, we can expect plenty of virtual reality games to be out.
Ubisoft’s Steep seems to be a great virtual reality title if one can afford the pricing of those expensive headsets. The game is all about riding the dangerous cliffs around the globe but with the comfort and safety of your home. VR is taking games on a whole new platform as such skiing games were for the arcades in the past. They are more interesting than ever as you could experience the excitement first hand.
A similar title is Eagle Flight from Ubisoft specifically made for the VR devices. It works with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and probably on the Playstation VR as well. Ubisoft is about to showcase a lot of more Watch Dogs 2, Steep, For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, and the wacky South Park Fractured But Whole.
With a huge collection of games, gamescom 2016 Ubisoft booth and conference should be an exciting event to watch out for. Despite the lack of Assassin’s Creed which is such a saving grace for the entire gaming community, the team has finally focus on some new titles and deliver what gamers actually love.
Watch Dogs 2 is one such launch while we hope there would be some surprise announcements at the show floor. If you happen to be there, Ubisoft also has private meetings with the developers. It gives the participants an opportunity to know what goes behind in making and getting a game launched besides get their technical questions answered. Let’s look forward to see what other publishers have lined up for Gamescom 2016.
