Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora Reveal Trailer
Coming in 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia and Luna.
Very little on big surprises but overall, a very solid and steady event from Ubisoft that will no doubt have fans of their iconic game series looking forward to the year ahead. Interesting to see that AC Valhalla is going to be supported through it’s second year with more expansions no doubt pushing the next AC Game to 2023. Plenty of things for fans of Rainbow Six Siege to get excited for with Extraction being a potential fun one to see experienced players stream. Surprised by the lack of focus on titles like Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline expansion, just a trailer during the pre-show and mention briefly during the show.
But yeah, a solid and great start to the E3 eekend and for me, keeping it simple and safe was probably wise considering the amount of delayed games they have had to deal with in this challenging last 12 months.
