Ubisoft's Best Video Games | June 2021

Ubisoft's Best Video Games | June 2021

Ubisoft is one of the largest video game producers in the world: the French giant, founded 35 years ago, has always remained independent and has pursued its own philosophy in developing video games, making use of the collaboration of numerous teams around the world, working on intellectual properties and video game series that have become true icons of gamin g over time. Among his most famous series we find brands such as Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Rayman, Splinter Cell, The Division, Rainbow Six and Watch Dogs, which are, some more and some less, among the best video games that the industry can offer in their respective reference genres. There are, however, also several "exceptions", ie video games released outside these series that are still of excellent quality.

In the guide that follows, therefore, we will offer you a list of the best video games developed and published by Ubisoft in recent years, taking into account their critical assessments and trying to draw up a list as heterogeneous as possible, which is not limited only to a single genre. Before starting to see what they are, remember that on our pages you can find other guides dedicated to the best video games, including one on the best Western role-playing games, one on the best Japanese role-playing games, one on the best metroidvani a and one on the best video games of anime mold. Having said that, let's start with the list!

The best Ubisoft video games

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Rainbow Six: Siege Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Far Cry 5 Watch Dogs: Legion Rayman: Legends Tom Clancy's The Division 2 For Honor Immortals : Fenyx Rising

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S Let's start the list with the most discounted option, namely Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. The last of the Assassin's Creed concludes the trilogy that began with Origins, while at the same time filing some problems including the dispersiveness of Odyssey and focusing the adventure more on its main strengths, namely the masterful reconstruction (as usual) of the setting of the moment . The protagonist is the Viking Eivor, who, for the first time in the series, can be both male and female, leaving the player free to choose in this sense. Reaching the chapters dedicated to Ezio Auditore in terms of popularity is objectively difficult, but Valhalla manages to defend herself quite well, and can undoubtedly call herself one of the best Assassin's Creed (if not the best) since Black Flag.

Rainbow Six: Siege

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S Rainbox Six: Siege is now a guarantee, a real institution in the field of competitive team shooters. Ubisoft doesn't want to abandon what is probably its most successful tactical FPS ever (and how to blame her?), And continues to churn out new content and updates (operators, maps, etc.) even now that the game starts. to turn six years of age and that his "successor" is about to be released, which is actually an independent spin-off, or Rainbow Six: Extraction. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S versions of Siege have also recently been published, which are not limited to being simple updates playable in backward compatibility, but exploit the features of the new consoles more intensively.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Platform: Nintendo Switch Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is one of those video games that you would never expect to be born, and instead it was: born in 2017 from an agreement between Ubisoft and Nintendo, announced directly by Shigeru Miyamoto on the E3 stage of the French publisher, was developed by the Italians of Ubisoft Milan, known for several other video games produced by Ubisoft. Kingdom Battle is a hilarious turn-based strategy inspired by XCOM, which brings together historical Nintendo characters such as Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Donkey Kong and others with the funny Rabbids, the bunnies invented by Ubisoft initially to act as a "shoulder" and spin-off of the Rayman series and subsequently become so popular that they acquired an identity of their own.

Far Cry 5

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC If you are hungry for Far Cry and are waiting morbidly for Far Cry 6 , the only thing you can do is turn to the latest installment of the series, or Far Cry 5 (perhaps accompanied by its stand-alone expansion, Far Cry: New Dawn, released a year after the original game, in 2019). Set in the forests of Montana, Far Cry 5 puts you in the shoes of an anonymous deputy sheriff called to solve the problem represented by Joseph Seed, a dangerous fanatic who is one of the best characters in the series (Far Cry have always had excellent villains) . Overall, Far Cry 5 represents the classic example of the "open world according to Ubisoft", with a huge map full of things to do and a satisfying technical sector.

Watch Dogs: Legion

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series / S Watch Dogs: Legion marks the return of the Watch Dogs series four years after the second chapter, arrived on shelves in 2016. Legion, unlike its two predecessors, opts for a half revolution in the series on a narrative level, allowing us to play an entire group of DedSec agents, who can be recruited literally in every corner of futuristic London that is the background to the game. You got it right: in Legion we will use simple NPCs, transformed for the occasion into protagonists of the story, each with its strengths and weaknesses, which affect the gameplay. Thanks to its revolutionary themes, the game is not too covertly the verse to works like V for Vendetta, the comic by Alan Moore from which the well-known film was based in 2005.

Rayman: Legends

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, Wii U Rayman Legends is (so far, at least), the latest chapter of the Rayman series, as well as the second, after Origins, of the "dualogy" in 2D that marked the transition between the seventh and eighth generation of video games (that's why it is the only one of the lot to be available even on old consoles ). Despite the approximately eight years of age, however, Rayman Legends still defends itself very well today: visually, in fact, it rests entirely on the wonderful UbiArt Framework, a graphics engine that would later be inexplicably abandoned by Ubisoft. If you have never played it, the advice is to retrieve it with your eyes closed, also because we are talking about one of the best platformers of the last ten years (even if only to admire the wonderful aesthetic sector, which makes it practically a painting in motion. ).

Tom Clancy's The Division 2

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC Tom Clancy's The Division represents some 'the “legacy” of the famous writer from Ubisoft: although not directly based on any of Clancy's works, the series clearly refers to the imaginary (which mixes futuristic and political fictional warfare) invented by him. The Division 2 has recently been updated for new generation consoles, with support for 4K and 60 FPS on the most powerful ones (Series S excluded, therefore), and continues today to be played by a good number of players. It is, however, a multiplayer MMO that would require a group of people to be fully enjoyed: if you are planning on taking a tour of Washington DC, make sure you have someone to play with in the endgame once the story is over!

For Honor

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC For Honor is another of the numerous "experiments" carried out by Ubisoft in recent years outside its reference series: it is an online team action brawler, in which a certain degree of cooperation and individual skill is required to excel. This is, let's say it immediately, a game not for everyone: if you think you might like it, however, you will probably spend a lot of hours on its servers giving blows! After all, even several years after its original release, For Honor continues to be always quite frequented by a hard core of fans: be careful while you get to grips with it, because life for newbies on the Ubisoft Montréal game could be very complicated!

Immortals: Fenyx Rising

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S It took several years, but in the end Ubisoft also produced "his" The Legend of Zelda, or Immortals: Fenyx Rising, an open world action RPG that clearly refers to Nintendo's masterpiece in several of the most basic mechanics, with a gameplay halfway between Zelda itself and Assassin's Creed. Immortals is set among the myths of ancient Greece, and reinterprets them with a certain amount of humor, primarily in the characterization of gods and divine figures such as Zeus and Prometheus. The protagonist is Fenyx (whose "canonical" version is the female one), committed to fighting the titan Typhon, who wants to declare war on all the other Greek gods.
