Ubisoft’s E3 conference, hosted by Aisha Tyler again, was full of surprises and moments of levity, like Trey Parker and Matt Stone appeared to announce a new South Park game, but ended up bitching about the mic and flirting with Aisha Tyler instead, or Jason Derulo came up on stage to announce Just Dance 2016 with a dance number. It was a good show, but before we dive into major announcements, First things first, no, Beyond Good and Evil 2 was still not shown.
South Park: Fractured But Whole
South Park: The Stick of Truth is getting a sequel called South Park: Fractured But Whole (Say it out loud and chuckle), in which you explore the new kid’s butthole… I swear it’s not how it sounds. Also, they’re superheroes now. It’s being developed in-house as opposed to being developed by Obsidian, and looks as awesome as The Stick of Truth was awesome. Also, Cartman said that they’re gonna Hollywood the sequel, i.e., bigger, better and vaster. Can’t wait for the new Canada level
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate got a gorgeous cinematic trailer, but no gameplay.
Trackmania is getting a sequel on this generation of consoles, and its as insane as previous ones. happy doing-hot-wheels-on-steroids-and-hallucinogens-stunts everyone!

Ubisoft also introduced the PvP zone of The Division, called “the dark zone,” a contaminated area set in Manhattan.
Oh, and the teammates can also double-cross one another now, in a rather… interesting new mechanic. Now if only i could use the skulls of my fallen and betrayed ex-comrades to build some sort of an evil base…
Anno 2205 was also revealed to the world, taking the city building RTS series into the final frontier. The game will be released on Windows PCs on November 3 of this year.
