Ubisoft unveils Just Dance 2015, Just Dance Now

Just Dance 2015 and Just Dance Now are things that are happening, Ubisoft announced today. The former looks to be the next iteration of the series you've become accustomed to seeing on consoles over the past few years. Just Dance Now, however, will make use of your phone. Now you can bump and grind on the go. You can dance everywhere, guys. Because you totally couldn't do that before.

Far Cry 4's new trailer is all about the villain photo
Far Cry 4's new trailer is all about the villain
by Chris Carter

Ubisoft kicked off their conference right at E3 today, showcasing the "first five minutes" of Far Cry 4. It's pretty heavy on the villain, giving us a chummy moment as well as a brutal death and a firefight.

Don't take my word for it -- just watch the video above now! Ubi is also teasing a "major Far Cry 4 announcement," so stay tuned.

Watch Ubisoft's E3 press conference right here

Ubisoft is continuing the E3 madness with its media briefing at 3pm PST. Maybe we'll finally see Beyond Good & Evil 2. Ha! Yeah right. At least, if nothing else, Ubisoft's pressers are usually good for a laugh. Something bizarre, awkward, or hilarious is bound to happen.

New content first on Xbox One for Tom Clancy's The Division photo
New content first on Xbox One for Tom Clancy's The Division
by Brittany Vincent

Tom Clancy's The Division will see its DLC coming to the Xbox One first. Sorry 'bout that, PC and PlayStation 4 adopters. The upcoming tactical shooter is slated for a 2015 release, and the latest footage out of E3 2014 showcases some interesting moves by other players who can play via mobile devices to control drones to support those on consoles. 

Unfortunately, great voice-acting and role-playing on the part of your friends isn't a safe bet like the E3 footage. You're going to have to supply that on your own, and no one talks like that, honestly. Better recruit some voice actors if you want to replicate that kind of experience at home.

'Vaporize aliens with your abs' in Ubisoft's Shape Up for Xbox One

Ubisoft is the latest company to make use of the Kinect for its fitness game but rather than strive for realism, Shape Up tries to be wacky in the hope that you'll work out harder if you're having fun. Squat into outer space...

What are your predictions for third parties at E3? photo
What are your predictions for third parties at E3?
by Mr Andy Dixon

All week long we'll be asking the Destructoid community for your predictions for each of the major press conferences going into E3 2014! Share your thoughts in the comments, and upvote your favorites! We'll be recapping these posts this weekend.

Not to be outdone by their console-making counterparts, the major third parties always seem to have something big in store for E3. Ubisoft has already confirmed that a pretty big list of games will be on display, and EA has announced that six new games will be revealed during their conference as well. (Also, my uncle works at Valve, and he told me that The Orange Box 2 will finally be revealed, and include Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, and Portal 3. But not really. Because my uncle works at a paper mill. And also because Valve hates you.)

What about you? Do you foresee any big third-party reveals during E3? Any new franchises? Old favorites brought back from the dead? Or just more of the same? Share your predictions below! Or, if you feel yourself getting too long-winded, go write a community blog!

Have fun! And if you haven't made your Xbox predictions yet, click here! For Sony predictions, click here! Nintendo, right here!
