Ubisoft unveils new trailer featuring gameplay and story bits of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint at E3 2019 presentation.

Last month, developer/publisher Ubisoft officially announced their upcoming tactical shooter game Ghost Recon: Breakpoint as a follow-up sequel to Ghost Recon: Wildlands after it was accidentally leaked on Ubisoft Store only a day ago.

This military shooter brings back protagonist Nomad and his fellow Ghost team members to tackle a new threat who has all of their skills and technology at their disposal but are willing to employ them with a viewpoint that threatens global peace.

When a group of former Special Forces operatives took over Skell Technology over Auroa Island and starts using their drones for political assassination, it becomes a concern for United States and they sent Ghost Recon fireteam to check.

The trailer shows scenes from an earlier gameplay walkthrough with Nomad voicing over how he alongside his brothers-in-arms would take down these seasoned predators in their own hunting ground one by one against all odds.

Mostly focused on four-player co-op play, GRB sends players to face off a skilled army with high-tech weaponry. Those who are playing solo would be assisted by AI teammates so that they can get a helping hand whenever needed.

A brand-new Bivouac system allows players to set camps to heal wounds while features like dialogue choices will be available in story mode. A competitive multiplayer mode will be included to this open-world tactical shooter at launch.

After making debut in free story content update Operation Oracle for Wildlands, former Ghost team leader Cole D. Walker is introduced as a badass bad-guy for Breakpoint who has rallied a small army of his brethren into his cause.

Walker is played by actor Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Walking Dead) who came to conference presentation of Ubisoft to introduce his character and brought along his pit bull Bam Bam, who sat quietly the entire time they were on stage.

Just like developer team supported GRW with tons of post-launch content, GRB will see arrival of the Terminator at some point and this crossover with Terminator: Dark Fate live-action movie is teased with a musical hint during UBIE3.

Nomad would be leading an enraged bunch of Ghosts against a pack of hungry Wolves in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint when it releases worldwide On October 4, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, then a month later for Google Stadia.

Watch Dogs: Legion E3 2019 Reveal

Ubisoft premiers Watch Dogs: Legion at E3 2019 event with gameplay footage and a release date set for 2020.

There has been rumor out there for long that developer/publisher Ubisoft was working on a new installment of Watch Dogs game from their popular action-adventure series, which got leaked by Amazon and then officially confirmed.

A worldwide reveal event at E3 2019 for upcoming open-world hacking adventure game Watch Dogs: Legion was announced. Ubisoft press conference gave us an introduction, gameplay video and an official release date of March 6, 2020.

An official world premiere trailer from stage of E3 gives you an exclusive first-look at story premise of WDL.




RELATED: Watch Dogs: Legion Confirmed

We already know Legion is set in post-Brexit era of London city that has completely become a futuristic dystopia through a leaked retailer listing from last week. Citizens become second class following drastic change in politics and technology.

What we know was how almost everyone and everything was under constant surveillance network but what we didn't know was that society is taken over by corrupt private military organization and there are killer drones.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Coming to Next-Gen PlayStation and Xbox

A resistance is formed by secret hactivist group DedSec, who makes their awaited return and player goes out to recruit various NPCs each one with different attributes and skills from open-world streets of London to join their collective.

One of your fellow citizens passing by could be a former MI5 operative, a prominent hacker or a grandma who used to be a professional assassin. Their unique set of skills will often be key to complete various mission objectives at hand.

You may need to pick someone expert in combat who can punch his way out of trouble or good at infiltration to get in places harder to reach. Getting a doctor within your group can benefit all of your team members with health buff.

Though often seem as random, their character traits are distinct and you can literally pick up anyone from in-game world to recruit into your fold. However, none of them will join DedSec immediately and you have to approach them each in different ways.

RELATED: Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Global Threat Story Trailer

Players can amass up to 20 rebel members from entire populace to join them and you can switch between them at any time to properly employ their diverse talents. Plus, leveling up your crew earns them extra perks and necessary adjustments.

If you get into a situation and get knocked up, you can either keep fighting or surrender. There is a permadeath system, which means you are out if you go down but if you are sent to jail, at least another DedSec member can bail you out.

E3 2019 has also brought us a gameplay walkthrough of Legion for a detailed outlook of how things are played out.




RELATED: The Division 2 Adds Gunner Specialization

Ubisoft has planned out a very ambitious gameplay system for WDL by taking their time where hacking your way through London is the only way to get by since civil liberties have been trampled long ago and your rights means nothing.

Aside from arriving on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at launch, Watch Dogs: Legion will also be available on Google Stadia. A city full of recruits opens up possibilities of near-limitless different outcomes and we can't wait to see how that works.

Watch Dogs: Legion Confirmed

Ubisoft took Twitter to announce confirmation for Watch Dogs: Legion after Amazon listing leak and will reveal at E3 2019.

After an accidental leak from Amazon UK product listing has revealed existence of next game from Watch Dogs action-adventure series to be Watch Dogs: Legion, it was eventually confirmed by developer/published Ubisoft on Twitter.

Not only have they officially confirmed newest release from their open-world franchise is in works but has also stated to show up at E3 2019, most likely for a worldwide reveal trailer launch with new trailer and some key-details.

Ubisoft simply posted a brief video of a glitchy red WD logo showing up and confirmation for E3 showcase on Twitter.



RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Coming to Next-Gen PlayStation and Xbox

Following the leak going public on social media, they officially came out with Legion within next 24 hour. It was not a huge surprise for people because rumors of a third game from Watch Dogs series has been circling around for some time now.

WDL will be set in a post-Brexit, dystopian version of London that saw a massive shift in society because of change in politics and technology. What they are eyeing for here is probably a sensitive issue like mass surveillance and that makes sense.

RELATED: Skull & Bones Delayed to 2020

For a new age of cyber crime spree to spread chaos across the UK capital next, Ubisoft will build up a highly detailed London city for Legion like they previously did with Chicago and San Francisco in past installments of WD franchise.

Although we already know that player would be able to play as any NPC if they want to, some mysteries are still there. This cryptic line from publisher Tweet, "God Save the NPCs." may hint at victimization of in-game NPCs like never before.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Phantom Sight Revealed

We did not learn much other than a title confirmation and an upcoming reveal over at E3 from this Twitter reveal but it was a decent move by the studio to simply assure fans what they have been hyping and speculating all along for a while.

It would really be interesting to see how Ubisoft is going to make Watch Dogs: Legion stand apart among so many free-roaming games set in open-world these days but many fans would probably be happy to get back to their favorite series once again.

Watch Dogs: Legion Leaked on Amazon

A recent leak from Amazon UK listing revealed next Watch Dogs game title that lets you play as NPC characters.

Up until now there were only rumors for the next game in Watch Dogs franchise existing as well as couple of hints here and there but thanks to an accidental product listing in advance by Amazon UK lately, that has been changed.

It appears that Watch Dogs: Legion is going to be upcoming open-world game from popular action-adventure series from developer/published Ubisoft and it also has some details about story settings and unique gameplay feature.

An early rumor suggested that the game will be set in London and according to leaks; it seems to be accurate after all. Also, Legion seems to be a legit title given how this one has come out from several credible sources lately.

After exploring two major cities in U.S. like Chicago and San Francisco in two early releases of Watch Dogs series, moving over to a new location would most likely allow for Ubisoft to experiment with a lot of new stuff in hacker culture.

The game is set in a post-Brexit world where society has gone through a huge shift and players will be able to play as anyone. Depending on which NPC characters you are playing as, there might be variable different things to come across.

Developing such a system should give developers quite a pain and don't be surprised if they even delay it once. Ubisoft is definitely going for a more serious tone with WDL with a dystopian London that already has highest surveillance systems.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Unity Positively Review-Bombed on Steam

Unofficial count says that there is currently a network of at least 1.85 millions security cameras installed throughout cities of U.K. with its politics is also changing right now and that makes the city a perfect playfield choice for Legion.

Since Watch Dogs: Legion was listed for PlayStation 4, we can safely assume that it would also launch on PC and Xbox One too with possibility of crossing over to next-gen consoles in future but we will probably learn more on that at E3 2019.

Getting leaked before making an official reveal, upcoming online tactical shooter Ghost Recon: Breakpoint from developer/publisher Ubisoft will debut on October 4, 2019 as a sequel to Ghost Recon: Wildlands for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The video opens up with a narration over a rendition of mythical creature golem and how it was an early representation for artificial intelligence back in 500 BC, which was originally designed by its creators to serve and protect.

Fast forward to last two decades and in a not-so-far future, technology has advanced to the point of creating driver-less cars and inventor Jake Skell has helped shaped that future with his Skell Technology by turning many myths into reality.

He moved further to come up with lethal drones on 2001 that helped save many U.S. lives during war in Afghanistan. Establishing headquarter in Aurora Island, they were successful in making an autonomous system in recent years.

In an unfortunate turn of events, Skell technology drones were used to kill a political candidate and media sees them as a global threat now. All contact is lost with Aurora, leading Ghost Recon team to investigate their radio silence.

Although actor Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Walking Dead) is roped in to play villain in Breakpoint after being introduced through an operation update for Wildlands, he was nowhere to be seen within the trailer above but hoping to see him in future.

Ubisoft has decided to make PC version of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint skip Steam and making it an Epic Games Store-exclusive title, as usual to their stance with The Division 2 and pre-order for Gold, Ultimate or Collector's Editions are already available up there.

Not only has he gone rogue but he is leading a group of ex-Ghosts who call themselves Wolves, now under employment of Skell Technology. Armed with effective killing machines, they have cut all ties to outside world and hunting Ghosts down.

Auroa Island is a perfect setting for Ghost Recon sub-series open-world tactical shooter as it is filled with different mountains, swamps and even a volcano, something we will probably see to play some key-part it its gameplay or narrative.

Al launch, the game will let you choose from four different classes with specific abilities and you can swap between them at your will. Breakpoint will release more classes over time and plans on to offer new major expansions after each four months.

Meet mysterious Ghost team leader, Cole D. Walker for new story content in free Operation Oracle update of Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Starting from May 2, they are releasing free story content Operation Oracle that features two new missions to team-based stealth shooter game Ghost Recon: Wildlands for players to enjoy on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Assassin's Creed Unity Positively Review-Bombed on Steam

Steam community review-bombed Assassin's Creed Unity to praise its giveaway by Ubisoft last week.

Although action-adventure game Assassin's Creed Unity from developer/publisher Ubisoft came out in 2014 and not has been a trending title for a while, it suddenly became a topic for discussion for gamers worldwide lately.

After iconic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire on April 15, the French video game studio donated €500,000 for its restoration and offered free copies of AC Unity, which led to fans positively review bombing it on Steam.

Last week, Ubisoft offered PC version of the game for free so that people can virtually explore and admire this 856 year-old historic Cathedral. Gamers become nostalgic going back to a French Revolution-era Paris and to re-discover this prominent sight.

It generated a surge of complimentary reviews all of a sudden by Steam community on its Store page and for a game that previously had a "mixed" status, has now garnered a "very positive" reputation after recent wave of reviews came in.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Origins on Humble Monthly Bundle

AC Unity players are expressing gratitude for allowing them an opportunity to revisit and appreciate what Notre-Dame was and one even joked that they will need to burn down a pyramid to get Assassin's Creed Origins for free.

Ubisoft took a break from the franchise after a rocky launch of Assassin's Creed Unity back in 2015 but as it seems, players have forgiven them for that now and surprisingly, Steam has not even flagged it for off-topic review activities either.
