Looking forward to FC5, South Park, and Division Season 2. AC Origins looks like the same AC as always.

Wonder if Mario/Rabbids game will be shown here. I have AC in mind, but don't think I am going to be particularly interested with anything else.

Edit: Unless Prince of Persia finally comes around again, through I am not getting my hopes up.

I need a new Splinter Cell game and some more South Park. Mildly interested in AC and Far Cry and whatever else they'll show besides that.

How cool would it be if they announced a Prince of Persia reboot or something and said it's coming out next year.

I can't wait for all the Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle stuff to actually be fake. It was all 3D printed.

The standard for fake leaks is raised so high that we aren't even sure E3 just happened. We look at the calendar and it says March.

I'm strangely optimistic about this show. I think their current line-up is legit great with South Park and the most interesting looking Assassin's Creed and Far Cry installments in a long time. Also a guaranteed new IP and always the potential for me. I think it could be great!

Curious to see how they handle Far Cry 5. I loved 4, but I won't pretend it wasn't exactly the same as 3.

I'd assume towers are either gone or massively reworked. I'd like to see some updates to stealth as well.

Other than AC: Origins, I'm not sure what else to expect (or look forward to maybe is the right word) from Ubisoft. Hoping to see some more VR stuff from them I guess.

Anyway, good luck on stage Crossing Eden, shit, I mean Yves.

Somehow after the great Microsoft conference yesterday and the upcoming Sony conference I expect absolutely nothing from Ubisoft. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We will see, surprise me Ubisoft.
Please keep the Rabbids stuff as short as possible...

At this point, I could be a fake poster that was 3D printed.
