Ubisoft E3 Conference Brief
The Ubisoft E3 2011 Press Conference just ended and Ubisoft brought some solid games to the table this year. All together there were twelve games showcased:
Rayman Origin will feature multiplayer co-op and is a classic 2D sidescrolling platformer. There was some actual gameplay of Rayman and it looked good, a solid Rayman game in line with older games of the same name.
Driver: San Fransisco was shown but only as a CG trailer, unfortunately there was no gameplay but Driver: San Fransisco will feature fast cars in an urban setting.
FarCry 3 showcased some gameplay with cover fire, and a daring escape that seemed to fail.
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 had no gameplay, but looks slightly reminiscent of Inglorious Basterds. The trailer featured four soldiers in a bar filled with Nazi soldiers, which the Four proceed to kill in interesting and painful ways.
The Adventures of TinTin: The Game had clips from an interview with Steven Spielberg, and is a tie-in to a movie of the same name. Colorful platformer with multiple playable characters.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Ghost Recon Online were both shown. Future Soldier had gameplay that featured multiplayer in a heavily populated area, with an emphasis on coordinated attacks and action kills. Online will be free to play, PC only. There will be cross platform achievement transfers.
Trackmania 2: Canyon showed off new tracks and races for the PC. Release is set for September 2011.
Raving Rabbids: Alive and Kicking will work with Kinect and be mini-games in keeping with the other Raving Rabbids games.
Just Dance 3 will be compatable with Kinect, PlayStation Move and, of course, the Wii and is set to release in October 2011.
Rocksmith will allow players to use a real electric guitar, for those who actually can play guitar already. Rocksmith will be out in the Fall 2011.
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved will be an upgraded version of the exercise game that is already out, no release was given.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelation started with a new story-driven CG trailer which featured an older Ezio fighting off waves of Templars and then moved to a gameplay trailer that showed upgraded combat, a flame thrower and Ezio running, climbing and jumping around burning ships and debris. Look for Revelation in November 2011.
