E3, I dream of one day attending... DREAM of it in a huge way but the only way I'll get on a plane is if someone sponsors me and I doubt that will happen anytime soon. So on June 4th I'll be live streaming with gamers around the world to see what some of the top gaming distributors and developers have on offer.
UBISOFT are one of the first to tease what will be on offer to press and public at E3 this June and of course all the huge titles are there, the most prominent being ASSASSINS CREED III and Far Cry 3. What will actually be on offer is a mystery... will we have live gameplay? New story trailers to go with their titles or will the UBISOFT press conference come under heavy scrutiny for not really showing any juicy new assets?
E3 can set anticipation for titles to an all time high until release or it can end up nailing a developer to a cross and holding them high to show the public how things shouldn't be done.
I wish UBISOFT the best of luck with their E3 revelations and with Assassins Creed III on the bill the only way they could mess this up is by eviscerating a cute little lamb on stage and goose stepping their way off the stage whilst using the little lambs head as a puppet reading out the contents of Mein Kampf verbatim...
UBISOFT® REVEALS E3 LINEUP FULL OF
BLOCKBUSTER GAMES AND SURPRISES
London, UK — May 23, 2012 — Today, Ubisoft announced that it will kick off the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2012 with an invitation-only press conference at the Los Angeles Theater at 3 p.m. PDT, June 4. The press conference will feature demonstrations and trailers of Ubisoft’s upcoming lineup of franchise hits, including games for the new Nintendo Wii U™, as well as digital titles, special guests and surprise announcements.
Following the press conference, E3 attendees can visit Ubisoft’s booth -- #1023, located in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center -- to see and play the company’s latest titles. Games available at the booth will include Assassin’s Creed® III, Far Cry® 3, Rayman® Legends, Rocksmith™ and many more. The finale of the ShootMania Marathon, an e-sport competition based on Ubisoft’s ShootMania®: Storm also will be broadcast from the booth on at 11 a.m. PDT, June 6.
“This year’s E3 promises to be one of our biggest and best yet,” said Yves Guillemot, Founder and CEO of Ubisoft. “We’re showcasing the strongest, most competitive collection of core titles we’ve had in years, innovative new games for new platforms and a broad lineup that has something for everyone.”
In a first, Ubisoft is inviting gamers to ask questions to its teams on Uplay®, Ubisoft’s online service dedicated to enhancing the experience of players across games and platforms. The best questions will be selected by one of the guest hosts and asked live during the press conference. Ubisoft also is sending eight select Uplay members to E3, where they will interview teams backstage, preview fans’ favourite games and provide video reports from the show floor. Finally, the Assassin’s Creed III® and Far Cry® 3 teams released two Road To E3 videos showcasing their preparation for the event, and are inviting fans to post their questions on their respective Facebook pages.
Those unable to attend E3 in person can watch the Ubisoft press conference live on YouTube, or embed the live feed on their own sites. Exclusive backstage videos and free content will also be available on http://uplay.com/e3.
