Today, Ubisoft announced that it will start its E3 2012 festivities with an invitation-only press conference at 3 PM (Pacific Time) on June 4th, but you shouldn’t feel left out; those unable to attend E3 can watch the press conference live on YouTube, and get bonus backstage videos and free content on Uplay, Ubisoft’s online community site dedicated to enhancing player experience.
The press conference will feature Ubisoft’s upcoming lineup (including their Wii U plans), special guests and some surprise announcements. In a first, Ubisoft will be inviting gamers to ask questions of its development teams on Uplay, and will broadcast the best questions live during the conference.
Games available to be played at Ubisoft’s booth will include Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, Rayman Legends, and Rocksmith. The finale of a ShootMania: Storm marathon tournament will be broadcast from the booth at 11 AM (Pacific Time) on June 6.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations… Driver: San Francisco… Call of Juarez: The Cartel… Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier…
Ubisoft’s E3 2011 lineup is full of familiar faces from the company’s strong stable of franchises. But the publisher has also promised several “exclusive new announcements,” so there’s sure to be a few surprises next month. Maybe they’ll even announce the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2. But that’s just speculation at this point.
You can check out the full list of titles Ubisoft plans to bring to E3 right here:
- The Adventures of Tintin (TBA)

“Ubisoft has been delivering top-notch entertainment for 25 years, and we’re incredibly grateful for all of our fans,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “We plan for the upcoming years to be just as exciting and full of innovation, and the wide range of creative, fun and unique titles we’re demonstrating at E3 illustrate the stellar talent of our development teams and Ubisoft’s ongoing investment in delivering entertaining and innovative products to consumers.”
Hey, did you hear that the plastic guitar game is dead? Well then I guess it’s a good thing that Ubisoft’s Rocksmith uses a real guitar.
Announced earlier today in The Hollywood Reporter, Rocksmith will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year and can be played with any electric guitar you may have gathering dust in your closet thanks to an adapter that’ll come packaged with the game. A $200 guitar and game bundle is also being considered.
Ubisoft is hoping that this feature will differentiate Rocksmith from Guitar Hero and Rock Band, which will not receive new entries in 2011. Ubisoft is hoping Rocksmith will also stand out due to its 45-song track listing, which the publisher promises will include tunes never before seen in any Hero or Rock Band game.
While the track listing might be new, the bands represented look to be old hat as songs from The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Nirvana and The Animals will be included in Rocksmith.
Believe it or not, the trash talking has actually already begun: “Guitar Hero is a party game. Rocksmith is a music experience,” Ubisoft Senior Vice President of Marketing Tony Key said.
