E3's Getting Hyped – Ubisoft

Ubisoft has announced that it’ll kick off E3 2012 with an invite-only press conference in Los Angeles on June 5th.

And it’s not just your typical press conference. It’ll feature demos and trailers of Ubisoft’s upcoming franchise hits, including games for the Nintendo Wii U and digital titles, special guests and surprise announcements.

Surprise. Announcements. Oh boy!

E3 attendees can visit Ubisoft’s booth after the conference (it’s #1023, if you’re lucky enough to be going) to see and play its latest titles. Games available there will include Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, Rayman Legends, and Rocksmith, among many others.

The finale of the ShootMania Marathon, the e-sport competition based on Ubisoft’s game ShootMania: Storm, will also be broadcast from the booth on June 7th.

Said Yves Guillemot, Founder and CEO of Ubisoft: “This year’s E3 promises to be one of our biggest and best yet.”

Ubisoft will also be inviting gamers to pose questions to its teams on Uplay, Ubisoft’s online service dedicated to enhancing the experience of players across games and platforms. Eight select Uplay members are also going to be sent to E3, where they will get to interview teams backstage, preview fans’ favourite games and provide video reports from the show floor.

The press conference will be streamed live on YouTube. Exclusive backstage videos and free content will also be available on http://uplay.com/e3.
