OFFICIAL THE DIVISION 2 – E3 2018 GAMEPLAY TRAILER
Moving onto the gameplay, Ubi showed us some of the new mechanics that were introduced. The gameplay orientates around a squad of players taking on a mission and fighting a boss using tactics and new abilities.
Each player will be able to choose a specialisation after completing the campaign. The specialisations give you access to a signature weapon, special powers and abilities as well as unique cosmetics for each specialisation. The idea here is to have a squad work together and synergise to become a more efficient and more powerful team. This will definitely come in handy with the new additions of raids into the game. You can now squad up with 7 other players to make a team of 8 and explore and fight together.
There are plans in place for post-game content support too. Year 1 should include story and gameplay content for players to experience, all of which is free for everyone. Great stuff!
Ubisoft also announced a beta for later on this year, you can sign up for the beta below:
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong Adventure

Skull and Bones: E3 2018 Gameplay Video
Ubisoft gave us another trailer and gameplay for Skull & Bones, their take on a loot plundering pirate game.
Here’s what Ubi have to say about the game…
“It is the golden age of pirates. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth., warships. You are an upstart pirate captain who refused the King’s pardon and sailed from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, an untamed frontier full of lavish riches”.
Skull & Bones will feature both Single and Multiplayer elements which will allow you to be a lone sailor, team up with friends or betray them for more gold. However, ruling the seas is no easy task. You will have to account for wind direction and the locations of other ships which have bigger and better weaponry. Maybe they’ll even board you.
The game is set for release this Autumn with a beta due soon.

Starlink is a new space-themed game similar to the concept of No Man’s Sky. You’ll explore space and battle out with other ships in the deepest depths of space.
Each planet you visit will have its own ecosystems, wildlife and factions that are battling for control of resources. Whilst the game is quite complex Ubisoft have said they’ve tried not to dumb down the game for kids; the intended audience. It’s important for kids to appreciate these things too.
Starlink also plays on the idea of having spaceship figures you can buy as toys but also double up to control some of the action in the game too which is really cool!
Starlink is set to release by the end of this year on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Oh and did I mention that StarFox is in the game too…
