Ubisoft's E3 2011 Conference Live Blog

7th June 2011, 8:59am

Ubisoft are celebrating 25 years of games. We've got a long demo of Rayman: Origins. The game is a beautiful 2D platformer with some slick animation, and we see quite a few parts of a level. The co-op gameplay is looking good.

There's a new Driver game coming, called Driver: San Francisco. A trailer plays. It's all CGI unfortunately, but there's plenty of speedy driving. It's playable at E3.

Ubisoft Montreal are up. We've got a trailer. It's Far Cry 3! We're back to the jungle, with some baddies executing people for some reason. The player character escapes, and takes out the baddies, gaining weaponry and liberating prisoners.

Gearbox Software are on stage. They're talking about Brothers In Arms. It's called Brothers In Arms: Furious 4. It's set in WW2. We see a very short trailer showing the characters and setting.

We've got a new tie-in game for the upcoming Tin Tin movie. There's a short trailer showing a bit of gameplay, it looks decent.

Next up is Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. There's a gameplay demo. Camouflage is used very effectively to sneak up on targets. There is four player co-op. There's a satellite view available, which can help you to form a strategy. We get to see all four players screens at once during the demo. Synchronised kills are a new part of the game. There's a new service called Ghost Recon Online. It will tie-in with Future Soldier, and will be free. Applications for the beta are open now.   

We see Assassin's Creed: Revelations. There's a fancy new CGI trailer showing off the setting, and then a quick gameplay demo. Ezio wreaks havoc, setting ships on fire using a crude flamethrower, and then running and jumping across them to get across the water. That's all from Ubisoft.
