Ubisoft's GamesCom 2010 Lineup

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2010 @ 9:22 a.m. PDT

Ubisoft announced its video game lineup for GamesCom, August 18-22, where it will show off Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Driver: San Francisco, R.U.S.E,  H.A.W.X. 2., and bunch of other titles...

You heard about it at E3 in Los Angeles but, for the first time ever, fans who attend GamesCom will be able to play Michael Jackson The Experience at the Ubisoft booth. In addition, for the first time in Europe, visitors will be able to test the new multiplayer mode of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, as well as see a presentation of the game’s single player experience which is scheduled at Ubisoft´s convention cinema. Playable at the booth, a multiplayer mode of DRIVER San Francisco will invite players to engage in wild and extensive car chases, while fans of strategy games will be able to check out R.U.S.E. Players who prefer aerial dogfights can get in the cockpit of Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2, and the crazy Rabbids from Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time will take visitors on a trip through the history of mankind. Consumers can also work up a sweat playing three different Ubisoft motion-controlled games: Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, MotionSports and Racquet Sports.

Daring visitors can jump up on the Ubisoft show stage and dance till they drop with the Just Dance 2 dancers or cross the space-time continuum testing Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time. Any visitor gutsy enough to show their stuff on the Ubisoft stage will walk away with a special goodie. And if you earn a goodie, but covet a different one, Ubisoft offers the Goodie-Swap where guests can turn in their current goodies for a different exclusive, limited Ubisoft goodie.

For those willing to step up to the challenge, there will be a dedicated R.U.S.E. multiplayer arena for up to 50 players at the official Electronic Sports League (ESL) booth in Hall 9. Compete for cool prizes against eight ESL pro gamers at regularly held R.U.S.E tournaments.

  • Michael Jackson The Experience (Wii)
