MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Ubisoft’s E3 press conference brings a number of new announcements and game updates for its stable of titles.

Opening with a beautiful symphony to celebrate 10 years of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft kicks off its E3 proceedings with a gameplay presentation for the Watch Dogs: Legion.

Watch Dogs: Legion is set in London in a dystopian future, a surveillance state where every non-player character is a potential member of your crew – a popular resistance where you can play as anyone.

Meanwhile, Brawlhalla is getting an Adventure Time crossover.

For The Division 2 fans, Ubisoft also outlined their year one plans, including 3 expansive episodes that take you beyond the city and into uncharted territory for the game.

In a statement, Ubisoft explained the 3 free DLC. D.C. Outskirts will bring Agents outside Washington DC so they can explore the surrounding areas and woodlands as they hunt for President Ellis and the leader of the Outcasts. Pentagon: The Last Castle is slated for fall 2019, and will obviously allow players to explore and retake the Pentagon. Lastly, Brooklyn: Homecoming will take players back to New York City – site of the first game – to confront new challenges at Coney Island. 

They also announced a movie for The Division featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain is in the works with Netflix in tow.
