Ubisoft‘s UBIE3 Press Conference will be one of the last to debut during the monumental weekend leading up to E3 2017. Realizing that fans may be chomping at the bit until Monday, June 12, Ubisoft decided to release funny video teasing what will be shown.
You gotta love it when gaming studios can find the time to prank gamers with a spoof video. I, for one, enjoy it because it’s a nice change of pace to the behind-closed-doors secrecy most developers employ. Nevertheless, Ubisoft did announce a few of the games they’ll be talking about during UBIE3, specifically Assassin’s Creed.
Ubisoft outlined its plans for E3 2017, including showing more from Far Cry 5® and South Park™: The Fractured But Whole™, and revealing details on the latest installments of Assassin’s Creed®, Just Dance®, and The Crew®.
The key word in this sentence is “installments”, which teases at not one but possibly two Assassin’s Creed games Ubisoft will show. Could it be like what Ubisoft did with Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and Rogue?
We won’t know for sure until June 12, but the Cinelinx team will be on-site for the event for the big reveal and will report straight to you! Plus, we’ll have hands-on access to all the Ubisoft games when the team will be live on the floor at 2pm on Thursday, June 15!
So, the bottom line is, keep it here for all your Ubisoft coverage during E3 2017!

“E3 is truly a moment of excitement and pride, not just for Ubisoft but for our entire industry,” said Yves Guillemot, CEO and co-founder, Ubisoft. “Ultimately, Ubisoft’s games are the result of the collective efforts of our talented teams from all around the world, collaboration with the biggest names in entertainment, and contributions from the players themselves. That’s why we can’t wait for the thousands of fans at this year’s E3 — and the millions watching from home — to discover our unique take on creating game worlds and the action-packed line-up we have in store for them.”
To kick off the festivities, Ubisoft’s E3 2017 Conference takes place on Monday, June 12, starting at 1 p.m. PDT. A 40 minute pre-show starts at 12:20 PDT. The pre-show and conference will be broadcast live and on-demand at Ubisoft.com, Ubisoft’s YouTube channel and Ubisoft’s Twitch channel. Then, from June 13 to 15, E3 visitors can see and play Ubisoft’s latest games at its booth (#1623, South Hall, LACC) and participate in a range of on-site activities.
As part of its longstanding efforts to focus on the players during E3, Ubisoft is again selecting 55 new Star Players from among its most dedicated fans to receive a VIP E3 experience on-site in Los Angeles. In addition, the Ubisoft Club will reward fans visiting the Ubisoft booth with special in-game content. Attendees also can visit the Ubi Workshop (booth #1847 in the shopping area within the South Hall of the LACC), which will feature new apparel, accessories and collectibles from Ubi Workshop’s latest collections.
