Ubisoft at E3 was less stellar in their presentations. A little bit is shown from The Division 2, like we care. Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which is a Nintendo Switch exclusive, featuring spaceships shooting at each other - Fox McCloud, from the Starfox is in it too! A motorbike game that reminds us of Happy Wheels and Animal Super Squad, for some reason. 

However, there were two that stood out the most: You guessed it, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Beyond Good & Evil 2. Let's check them out:

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

"Odyssey" is an important keyword here. It tells us that instead of roaming around a city or two, we will be exploring a vaster region and from that we can look forward to varied locations. As you may have already heard, the game will take place in Ancient Greece, at 431BC. Almost half-a-decade before the Battle of Thermopylae (that big battle about 300 Spartans kicking ass). You get to play as Alexios and Kassandra. Ubisoft has claimed to integrated deeper RPG elements: Which can mean anything really. Skill trees? The franchise isn't new to that. Dialogue choices? Oh, that's interesting. Romance options? I guess Ubisoft is ready to make a stand. 

Beyond Good & Evil

If you haven't played the original Beyond Good & Evil way back in 2003. You probably should, just for context about what happens in the trailer. Or, you can probably just Wikipedia it. Sadly, the trailer shows no concrete details on gameplay has been shown. From what little we were shown on a different video, we can fly ships, eject in mid-flight to get into some face-to-face action against enemy ships, and pull off some pretty neat tricks. Even sadder, Ubisoft has not mentioned any release dates, so maybe we can expect one sometime after the launch of Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
