Ubisoft will show off more games than ever at Gamescom 2017

Matt Sayer 8 August 2017 NEWS

Assassin's Creed, Far Cry and South Park are just some of the games on the bill.

Following announcements from THQ Nordic and Bandai Namco, Ubisoft has revealed the line-up of the games it plans to show off at this year's Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany.

Spearheading the roster is Assassin's Creed: Origins, the latest Egyptian-themed addition to Ubisoft's popular stealth-action series. We're keen on seeing more of Origins after our recent preview, especially since Ubisoft is talking up the tomb-raiding and puzzle-solving aspects of the game.

Next on the list is Far Cry 5. While the premise of taking down a fanatical cult in the American Midwest sounds promising, the footage shown off at Ubisoft's E3 press conference didn't do a whole lot to differentiate the game from its predecessors. Hopefully Ubisoft will share more on how it's leveraging the game's unique setting at Gamescom.

The Crew 2 will be burning rubber in Germany too and I for one am chomping at the bit to see more of the boats, bikes and planes promised in the racing game's E3 trailer.

Finally, South Park: The Fractured But Whole will return for yet another convention, while Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be making its final appearance before its 29 August launch. Ubisoft also plans to show off new For Honor and Rainbow Six: Siege content, along with live stage performances for Just Dance 2018 that are sure to be as hilariously bizarre as ever.

Along with the promise of new announcements and fresh footage, each game will be available on the showroom floor for Gamescom attendees to test out. There'll be over 300 game stations packed into Ubisoft's booth, more than the studio has ever brought to Gamescom before.

We'll be covering all of Gamescom's news and announcements when the show rolls around later this month, so be sure to check back then for all the info.
