Ubisoft may have put the kibosh on a new Assassin’s Creed game for 2016, but they have big plans for the rest of their portfolio in the near-term, including an official announcement for Watch Dogs 2. Ubisoft has been teasing a sequel to their techno-thriller for quite some time, so it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that it’s taking over the release window for Assassin’s Creed (at least temporarily).

However, the further adventures of Aiden Pearce won’t be the only game that Ubisoft will release throughout their 2016-2017 fiscal year. The company also plans to launch For Honor, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and a new “high-potential AAA brand” between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.

Ubisoft plans to reveal more information about their upcoming slate of games sometime in the next two weeks.

As always, Ubisoft will have a commanding presence at this year’s PAX Prime expo. The publisher will ask players to take command of four demos on the show floor including Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.

More details on all four demos, courtesy of the UbiBlog, can be found right here:

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Head back to 19th century London during the Industrial Revolution, and explore the city as Master Assassin Evie Frye. Make your way through the Tower of London and forge your own path in a nonlinear Blackbox mission. Get the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Rooks Initiation Kit by pre-ordering the game at booth #1040.

For Honor
Carve a bloody path across the battlefield in For Honor, the epic melee combat game revealed at this year’s E3. Check out booth #1040 to get your hands on the valiant Legion knights and face off against other worthy foes in the 4v4 Dominion mode. While you’re at the booth, take a picture in the faction gear of your choice (Knight, Viking, or Samurai) and pre-order a copy of the game to get a PAX exclusive shirt featuring one of the factions. Attendees will also be able to check out the skinned For Honor consoles.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
The next leg of the Siege Games kicks off at booth #632. Come play Rainbow Six Siege for the chance to join us at the star-studded Siege Day launch event. Those who stop by the booth will receive the limited edition Rainbow Six Pinny Arcade pins.

Tom Clancy’s The Division
Try your luck in The Division’s Dark Zone at booth #612. Form a group and see if you can extract the legendary loot before another team takes you down. Pre-order The Division at booth #1040 for an exclusive t-shirt.

PAX Prime is less than two weeks away and will be held on August 28-August 31 in Seattle, Washington. I hope you’ve already got your tickets because they’re currently all sold out.

Ubisoft’s For Honor asks the most important question ever… Knights, Vikings, or Samurai?

The fighting prowess of historical societies is one of those great lunchroom debates that will never go away. During this year’s E3 Expo, Ubisoft revealed For Honor, a melee fighter that will put all those theories to the test:

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, For Honor drops gamers into the chaos of a raging battlefield during an ongoing war between three Great Factions: the bold Knights (the Legions), the brutal Vikings (the Warborn) and the enigmatic Samurai (the Chosen). For every battle, players can choose which warrior they want to embody amongst the unique Heroes from this pantheon and use their distinct skills and weapons to fight for land, people and honor, decimating all soldiers, archers and opposing Heroes who stand in their way.

For Honor includes both a thrilling multiplayer and an engaging, single-player campaign, letting players conquer their foes alone or with friends. Tense gameplay mixes the skill and ruthlessness of a shooter with the quick, heat of the battle decision-making of team-based tactical games.

For Honor will include a very unique control scheme, allowing players to have maximum control over their weapon. Dubbed the “Art of Battle” system, Ubisoft’s Jason Vandenberghe dove into the nuts and bolts of the control scheme in a development blog at For Honor’s official website. A second trailer, which discusses the control scheme, as well as gameplay from For Honor’s 4v4 “Dominion Mode,” is available after the break.

For Honor is in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. No release date was announced. (more…)
