[E3 2012] Ubisoft E3 2012 Game Lineup Details3:44 pm am June 12, 2012
Watch Dogs will be an open-world action-adventure that will be developed by Ubisoft Montreal. A realistic and living open world will apparently be on offer with the title, allowing players to use a larger number of methods to take down a corrupt system. They will play as Aiden Pearce, an antihero who possesses the ability to hack into any connected system. With this distinct skill, he is able to coerce and control almost every element of the world around him. The game is yet to receive a specific release window.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will have Sam Fisher following a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist, which is a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Fisher’s tactical suit and goggles will be present with him, but he will also be endowed with new gadgets to help him extract crucial information from the enemy. The new Killing In Motion aspect of the title lets Sam mark and kill multiple enemies in one fluid motion, whereas its Active Sprint feature enables him to make his way through the environments easily and fluidly.
The next game in this list of the new Ubisoft E3 titles is Assassin’s Creed III Liberation which will be released for the PS Vita in conjunction with its console counterpart. This title allows gamers to play as the series’ first female protagonist, Aveline, fighting for her freedom in 18th century New Orleans. It has been confirmed that the game will use the Vita’s front and rear touch panels, cameras and gyroscope. An exclusive multiplayer experience crafted for the Vita will also form part of the title.
Just Dance 4 is another game coming from the publisher later this year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. This title will make use of the Kinect and PS Move accessories on the respective systems. Forty new tracks, fresh modes as well as a number of Wii U-exclusive traits will be found in the latest from the Just Dance series. Rayman Legends also highlighted Ubisoft’s lineup, being one of its two games unveiled specially for the Wii U console.
In addition, Ubisoft has come up with a new first-person shooter called ZombiU which will be made available exclusively for the Wii U. In this game, players will be pushed into the middle of London circa 2012, where a zombie outbreak has infected the population.
“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.”
