This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo is fast approaching and Ubisoft isn't shy about teasing what's in store for their press conference on the 9th of June.
Speaking via Ubisoft's Official Blog, co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot said.
“2014 is the most exciting year the gaming industry has seen in a while. At E3, we can’t wait to share our vision for the future of gaming,” said Guillemot. “Ubisoft teams have fully embraced this new generation and will demonstrate how they are bringing breakthrough innovations to our beloved franchises in order to offer players the most original and memorable gaming experiences.”
The blog went on with a sneak-peek description of some of the major titles Ubisoft will be bringing to the stage at E3, including the next-gen only Assassin’s Creed: Unity and the recently announced Far Cry 4.
Assassin’s Creed Unity: "A new Assassin, a new era. Assassin’s Creed Unity has been built from the ground up as a next-gen game, offering a new way to experience the venerated franchise. Set during the French Revolution, Assassin’s Creed Unity unfolds during a time of unimaginable terror and unprecedented turbulence – the perfect backdrop for the ongoing battle between the Assassins and the Templars."
Far Cry 4: "Far Cry 3 was the top-rated shooter of 2012. How do you possibly top that? By going even bigger. Far Cry 4 is set in an entirely new area – a massive open-world in a Himalayan region known as Kyrat. With a new weapons, vehicles, wildlife and more, Far Cry 4 will be the most immersive and expansive game in the series ever."
The blog also spoke about the online RPG The Division, the action-driving game The Crew, and briefly mentioned that the highly-stylized Valiant Hearts: The Great War would also make an appearance. In standard Ubisoft fashion, we can also expect more titles to be present, along with a collection of special guests visiting the Ubisoft booth throughout the show.
