On this episode of E-I-C Speaks, Nia talks about E3 2017 and all of the amazing-ness gamers were blessed with this year. Some gamers are jaded due to lackluster presentations with no smoke and lights, but at the end of the day, it’s important to remember that the GAMES themselves make all of the difference. Understanding that E3 is essentially the “Super Bowl” of gaming, Nia had a ton to say about each company’s offerings – namely EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Listen to her thoughts below!
Ubisoft finally showed off new gameplay of their highly anticipated title Ghost Recon: Wildlands. These are my impressions.
It seems Ubisoft is bringing another heavy hitter from the vault of fantastic games they have for 2017. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands was shown at E3 2015 with a CGI teaser trailer. At this year’s conference, we finally got to see an early build of the game, learned new details about the gameplay, and also got a release date. The gameplay showed what we already knew – that co-op was going to be bigger and better than ever before in the Ghost Recon franchise. The world looked massive and it seems each squad member has a particular job to do for missions. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is set in Bolivia where a Mexican cartel has taken over the area and seized one of the local coca crops. A United States Special Ops team is sent to find the cartel and destroy their gang.
Ubisoft’s conference is one to look forward to with games like The Division and Rainbow Six: Seige on the horizon. What would you like to see? More new IPs? More gamplay of what we know about? Let us know.
