It wouldn't be a Ubisoft press conference without something a little on the weirder side of things. That comes with the announcement of Trials of the Blood Dragon which is actually available NOW on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
There was then a discussion about the Assassin's Creed movie but I do not think we need to go into further detail about this. We have games to talk about!

Ubisoft will continue to partner with Sony with the release of Watch Dogs 2 with the announcement of the Watch Dogs feature film along with timed exclusive content available 30 days before any other platform.
