Origins takes the story back to the first days of the Assassins. You play as Bayek -- basically an Egyptian cop.
Origins will actually depart from the normal action-adventure feel of earlier titles. It'll be a fully fledged role-playing game so you can level up your character as you choose while you explore the world. From the shot above, it looks like you'll be fighting some scary bosses as well.
Ubisoft showed off Far Cry 5 as well. The latest entry in the open-world shooter series brings the fight to America for the first time. Far Cry 5 is due out on February 27, 2018 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Far Cry 5 is set in a fictional region of Montana called Hope County. You'll be fighting off a group of religious cultists known as Eden's Gate that has taken over the disenfranchised area and is violently forcing its will on the populace.
You'll be able to play the whole game with a friend.
You'll also recruit allies to help fight off the cultists.
The South Park gang are back for another role-playing game from Ubisoft. The Stick of Truth -- the first game in the series -- was surprisingly good. Ubisoft will look to recapture that magic with the aptly named The Fractured But Whole. This South Park sequel is due out on October 17 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
You'll be cast in the role of the newcomer.
The trailer offered a look at some big battles.
And of course, the usual cast of characters.
Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto joined the Ubisoft press conference to show off a surprise title: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The game will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch and released on August 29.
Gameplay will be tactical and turn-based. You'll explore the map with Rabbids and Mario characters, then engage evil Rabbids in a board-game-style battle. The demo made it look similar to XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
You'll be able to move across the battlefield, jump and use pipes to Mario's advantage.
In the mood for some online racing? Ubisoft showed off the Crew 2 -- an open-world racing game coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year.

It looks like it has a central story behind the races.
And it lets you go off-roading.
Pick from cars, boats, bikes...
You'll even be able to race planes.
Ubisoft teased a trippy VR game called Transference. It's due out in the spring of 2018 for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. It'll also be playable outside of VR on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Skull & Bones takes adventure to the high seas.
You'll pilot a ship either by yourself or with friends and engage in online battles for treasure.
The demo showed off a five-on-five battle for loot.
You'll need to judge the winds to sail quickly, and strategically plan where to send different kinds of ships to win the battle.
Skull & Bones is due out this fall for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
In the middle of all of the game trailers, Ubisoft brought out Bebe Rexha for a dance number to get fans excited for Just Dance 2018.
The latest entry in the music and rhythm series is coming this October for all consoles.
If you weren't satisfied with just The Fractured But Whole, Ubisoft showed off another South Park game: Phone Destroyer.

Combining toys and games, Starlink: Battle for Atlas lets you build custom collectables in real life, and use them in the game.

Ubisoft finished off its press conference with a big one: Beyond Good and Evil 2 -- the long awaited sequel to a classic from the days of the original Xbox and the PlayStation 2.
Since Beyond Good and Evil was first released in 2003, we've heard lots of rumors of a sequel. Ubisoft finally made that a reality. Certain gamers in the office may or may not have squealed in delight (it was me).
The trailer certainly showcased a variety of characters.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 will take place in a large sci-fi world, where you're fighting against an evil regime for the freedom of all. It's a prequel to the first game in the series.
