Ubisoft

Ubisoft hit all the right notes last year, leaving us with positive, lasting impressions of games like Far Cry 3, Rayman Legends, ZombiU, and the reveal of Watch Dogs. Now, things have changed from last year and Ubisoft, while still looking, is a bit tarnished from the debacle with Rayman. However, they can still win us over with another strong showing. Could they do it? You’ll find out in a bit.

But first, let’s rock with Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains as he shows off Rocksmith 2014.

After Aisha Tyler welcomed everyone, wearing a shirt that showed off her famous quote from last year (#girlwood), they showed off Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The game will be coming to all consoles and release in August.

Next up, two new trailers were shown for Rayman Legends. The game will be coming on September 3rd on all major consoles.

Next up is The Mighty Quest For Epic Loot, a free-to-play game. The game is all about building your castle and kingdom, protecting yourself from invaders. You can also invade other castles and take their treasure. The game is currently in Closed Beta. If you go to the website, you can join the free beta.

Next up is The Crew. The game will have you work to take over areas. You’ll be able to customize your cars as you and your friends get away from the Police or take on other crews. Cars can be customized on a second screen, like an iPad.

They then went on to our favorite game of last year’s E3, Watch Dogs. We get more looks at just who Aiden Pierce is. From the looks of the trailer, we see that he is some sort of vigilante.

Following this was the latest look at Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. The newest installment in the Assassin’s Creed series will release on consoles and PCs in late October.

Finally, we’ve got our first look at a new game from Massive Entertainment. The game will be Tom Clancy’s The Division. The game will be coming to Xbox One and PS4.

    Ubisoft’s conference this year really failed to excite me like last year’s. It lacked any noteworthy surprises, at least for me.
