Recap – Ubisoft Live E3 Keynote

Today we covered the Ubisoft E3 Keynote. This has to be the biggest year for Ubisoft. With The Kinect now ready to go up for Microsoft’s Xbox, Kinetic was seen quite a bit in the selection.

The start of Ubisoft’s demos included Assassins Creed Brotherhood, where Ezio returns in the epic battle for the pieces of Eden. New combos, weapons, and destructible environments will make Assassins Creed jump in the group of epic games that players will play for years. Also added is a multiplayer format with a ranking system to show off how well you play the assassin. Looking to be out in November on the 16, it will add to the already epic story line fans adore.

Like Tony Hawk with Neversoft, Ubisoft Has added a whole new level to skate boarding games with Shaun White Skateboarding. With the great add on to not just skating the environment, but extending it far beyond the norm, you bring the city to life. With rails extending beyond the deep end and vertical ramps flowing out of the ground as you skate towards them, Ubisoft has added more do as you choose to the skater gaming community.

Lazer tag, the game that all remember. Running around shooting each other with plastic guns. Ubisoft has made the game more entertaining. With 4 on 4 multiplayer capabilities you can play at parties with friends running and shooting actual people, without the death. Though The game seems to be more suitable for children under 16, Ubisoft is confident all with love it.

Innergy was announced, but the stress relieving game seems, well.

Kinect Showed its goods with Ubisofts Motion Sports and Fitness Evolved. Motion Sports allows you to play sport style games with a more interactive approach. Football, soccer, and even skiing were demonstrated in a recorded video. Fitness Evolved was shown off with the Microsoft Kinect. With the chance to post goals on game and have a computerized personal trainer, Wii has a lot of competition in the fitness department. An interactive personal trainer actually tells you when you do the exercise incorrectly so you can get that workout based on your body type. Oh, did i mention it scans your body type! Yeah, it scans your body type to make sure you do everything to make your work out is at its max.

Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. From Neanderthals to King Arther, these goofy rabbids jump through time creating havoc. humor is the hit here and will appeal to players looking to goof off.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier, the awaited shooter game in Ubisoft’s lineup was ridiculous. A featured new gadget shown in the demo was the Optical Camouflage. This camouflage allows you to turn completely invisible. Online gaming will be intense with this new add on and more destruction with the environment. Also added on is the new 4 player co-op to make the gaming experience more tactical.

Driver 3 was thrown in the mix with new actually licensed cars and new shifting ability used by Tanner, the first character from Driver 1. Destructible cars and intense street driving put this game on a fast track to great street cred.

Rayman is brought back from the grave.

And finally Maniaplanet has been shown to the fullest extent. Players will be able to not only create race tracks but now role-playing-games and shooter based games. You will be able to build, play, and share all you created! The betas will be out soon.
