E3 2018: Ubisoft's Just Dance 2019 Parties It Up With a Dancing Panda

Ubisoft at E3 2018 started off their conference with trumpets, colourful costumes, and a dancing panda to celebrate the arrival of Just Dance 2019.

The spectacle and excitement showcased how Just Dance 2019 is the ultimate party game. Just Dance 2019 has over 40 tracks from popular hits and family favourites, like Shaky Shaky by Daddy Yankee, Bang Bang Bang by BIGBANG, and Narco by Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet.

Here are some of the other songs that have just been officially released in Just Dance 2019:

  • Bum Bum Tam Tam by MC Fioti, Future, J Balvin, Stefflon Don, and Juan Magan
  • Dame Tu Cosita by El Chombo Ft. Cutty Ranks
  • Finesse (Remix) by Bruno Mars Ft. Cardi B
  • Fire by LLP Ft. Mike Diamondz
  • Mad Love by Sean Paul, David Guetta Ft. Becky G
  • Mama Mia by Mayra Verónica
  • Mi Mi Mi by Hit The Electro Beat
  • OMG by Arash Ft. Snoop Dogg

Key features of the game include Just Dance Unlimited, where players have over 400 songs to choose from for the year. A trial for one month is also included with every purchase. To add more personal flair to the game, the game learns each players’ dancing habits and even suggests content they will enjoy.

For the kids, there are eight choreographics developed for them, encouraging healthy movement. Upping the game in dance moves just got a lot easier for players of all ages as well, especially with the feature that lets smartphones track moves. The PlayStation Move or Kinect are not needed for this, and up to six people can party it up.

The game will be coming out on October 23, 2018.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Takes Ubisoft E3 Stage to Announce Beyond Good and Evil 2 Partnership The actor and HitRECord founder reveals partnership with Ubisoft at E3 2018

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Takes Ubisoft E3 Stage to Announce Beyond Good and Evil 2 Partnership 5

In spectacularly on-brand Ubisoft style, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt took the stage at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference following a CG trailer of the hotly anticipated Beyond Good and Evil 2 to announce a partnership with Ubisoft and Gordon-Levitt’s production company to bring fan-based original content to the game.

HitRecord, an online collaborative production company focused on producing independent artistic projects, will collaborate with Ubisoft to produce original art, music, and other content to Beyond Good and Evil 2, potentially featured as a large billboard or a song playing on the radio in the game’s expansive world. To illustrate this concept, an image displayed on the Ubisoft stage showed a large structure in the game’s futuristic metropolis, with the words “YOUR ART HERE” emblazoned on the building’s side.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Takes Ubisoft E3 Stage to Announce Beyond Good and Evil 2 Partnership 4

Prior to today’s announcement, Ubisoft had been promoting community participation in building the Beyond Good and Evil universe through the Space Monkey Program, where fans can post and discuss their hopes, concerns, and ideas for the unreleased sequel. Ubisoft hopes to take this community-developer relationship one step further with this HitRECord partnership.

“We want our community to participate in a way that’s never been done before through the Space Monkey Program,” said Guillaume Brunier, senior producer and product developer at Ubisoft. “We want our fans and people all over the world to really be a part of creating the game.”

After making the partnership announcement, Joseph Gordon-Levitt clarified on Twitter that contributors will be paid through this system.

Beyond Good and Evil 2, a long-anticipated sequel to a game released fifteen years ago(!), opened Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, first with a CG trailer featuring many of the characters first seen in the game’s first reveal last year, and then a very brief gameplay demo that showed footage of a large futuristic city swimming with flying cars and jetpacks.

Cults and Chaos: A Interview With The Far Cry 5 Creative Team

Cults and Chaos: A Interview With The Far Cry 5 Creative Team

Far Cry has, in the past, been a series about chaos and mayhem in exotic lands—at least from a Western perspective. From the plains of Africa in Far Cry 2 to a remote tropical island in Far Cry 3, Ubisoft has built a formula for Far Cry based on these locations. However, for the fifth instalment, they are doing something new by taking the series to North America and tackling the real world concept of cults and the extreme factions of religion in the United States.
