Live: Ubisoft E3 2014 event

ubisoft logo

Get hype, guys, because Ubisoft is up next. This is going to be fun!

1:02 So that’s it for now! Uh… Sony’s presser is in another two hours. Realistically I’m going to be climbing in to bed at 5AM today. Sigh.

1:01 Matt – In another six years.

1:00 When’s it going to be launched? 2015?

1:00 Its been six years since the last Rainbox Six game.

1:00 Rainbow Six: Siege.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:57 Well, maybe. I don’t know.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:56 IT CAN ONLY BE RAINBOW SIX!

12:54 Looks like SWAT, or Ghost Recon.

12:54 Oh, so it’s not Beyond Good and Evil. Damn.

12:53 Good guy Yves pops up for one last thing.

12:53 It will print Ubisoft MILLIONS.

12:52 You knew it as soon as the wretched animal popped up on the screen. Now you’ll play it, grow to love the dog and then cry your little bitch heart out when it ends.

12:51 SPOILER: The dog dies.

12:49 Not only does the game tie into World War 1, there’s a tonne of interesting documentary footage, photos and art included in the game to teach people about the war.

12:48 Next up is Valiant Hearts: The Great War.

12:48 Suck it, Wii Fit.

12:47 Iwata WISHES he could have this level of insanity.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:46 So now they’re going to have two mildly unfit people play the game on-stage.

12:45 This is actually a very good use of the Kinect and aside from Kinect Sports Rivals, the deepest I’ve seen a publisher/developer go into the camera’s abilities.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:43 So this is someone actually using the Kinect’s abilities properly. One of its tricks was the ability to mix up input from the camera and the infrared sensor to figure out what movement is intended and with how much force.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:43 Its called… Shape Up.

12:42 Oh, it’s a Kinect game!

12:41 Oh great, here she comes again. Cue cringing.

12:40 VERY nice texture work on the hooded cloak.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:39 Oh hey, sideways wallrunning from Prince of Persia (not the recent bad one).

Ubisoft E3 2014

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:37 STEALTH!

12:36 Combat still looks the same. No reason to change perfection now, really.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:34 Hey, live demo on a Xbox One. We all remember how that worked out with Black Flag last year on PS4. This is a good opportunity for Microsoft.

12:34 “A thousand terrors I aim to cure each day. Street by street. Templar by templar.”

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:33 Matt – Looks like the new assassins crowdsource their work… eh? Eh? EH?!!

12:32 Assassins not assassinating anyone. Huh? Still, Ubisoft knows what they’re doing here as well!

12:30 Tears for Fears’ “Everybody wants to rule the world” is playing.

Ubisoft E3 2014

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:29 Now we’re on to Unity. Assassin’s Creed Unity, that is.

12:28 A 11.11.14 release date means you’re launching on the same day as Halo: Master Chief edition. Did you learn nothing from Splinter Cell and Rayman?

12:27 There will be a closed beta that gamers can join later this year.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:26 I can’t wait to buy this. Not on PC, of course. I can’t stand Uplay.

12:25 The Crew’s creative director, Julian Gerighty steps up and talks about how hard the team’s been working and how their closed beta has been affecting development.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:23 I can’t screenshot this, it’s just too awesome. There’s a fast-frame playback of races played in the game. Ubisoft knows exactly what they’re sitting on here.

12:22 Hopping to The Crew now and… shhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut the hell up please.

12:21 Matt – Hey that looks like Troy Baker.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:20 “Tragedy is invisible, people run from it when they can.”

12:19 The prologue is also an incredible showing for the new engine that Ubisoft built specifically for The Division.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:18 I am so buying it. Even if Tom Clancy will never get the money, ever.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:17 Skipping to The Division now, there’s a trailer showing how New York crumbled into ruin.

12:16 I remember this girl now! She was the irritating, brash black comedian that Ubisoft hired for their conference last year! ZOMG.

12:15 Apparently you load the Just Dance app to your phone, it uses the gyrometer inside to measure your dance moves and all you have to do is shake your way to a finish.

12:15 Matt – Nobody is named Alberta, that’s a fake name. Come on.

12:14 A flash mob inside a Ubisoft event? What the fu…

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:13 The service can scale up to…

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:11 Ubisoft wants to make Just Dance 2015 a multiplayer experience. Dance against other people across the globe!

12:10 Not going to provide screenies for this one, but it’s got gameplay, features and good music. Hey, it’s advertising a game!

12:09 Sounds like Just Dance 2015 is coming, hey.

12:08 Oh look, Youtube’s streaming ain’t working either. Time to switch to IGN.

12:07 Damnit Twitch, not again. Seriously.

12:06 “You and I are going to tear shit apart!”

12:04 This is going to be incredible.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:01 Straight into Far Cry 4. Hell yes.

Ubisoft E3 2014

12:00 Here we go!

11:59 Personally, I’m looking forward to Far Cry 4 and what could be shown tonight, Beyond Good and Evil 2.

11:55 Man, after tea and a snack I feel a lot better. Still a ways to go to the Sony conference.

    Do we really need an in depth explanation of Just dance?

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wesley-Fick/184346154999538 Wesley Fick

      Nope. But here, have one anyway.

      • Alex Rowley

        Man it felt like that part was never going to end and just when you think it did bam exercise game.

  • Alex Rowley

    Okay Rainbow six siege looks pretty damn good. You know what also looked pretty damn good? Rainbow six patriots!

    • Rick de Klerk

      What is up with the simulated dialogue in these games, though? At least, that’s how it sounds to me. First the Division, and now Rainbow Six — just comes across as awkward.

      • Alex Rowley

        I get why people don’t like it but honestly think of what normal multiplayer game chats are like. I would prefer the simulated talk showing off the new features as a opposed to ” You got shot you fucking pussy!”

        • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wesley-Fick/184346154999538 Wesley Fick

          You can’t have ‘LLLLLLLLERRRROOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEENKINS” happen in every MP gameplay vid now, can you?

          • Rick de Klerk

            I demand authenticity. How do I know it’s a game unless someone questions my sexuality and/or claims to have made love to my mother?

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wesley-Fick/184346154999538 Wesley Fick

      Or, you know… SWAT?

      • Alex Rowley

        I actually think they wanted to make a SWAT game but that brand has zero name power behind it so they just stuck Rainbow 6 on it for some cred. I really hope they keep the ideas Patriots had.
