Ubisoft Unveils PAX East Lineup

by Rainier on March 23, 2012 @ 4:38 p.m. PDT

Ubisoft announced its lineup for PAX East, including Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier and a number of acclaimed digital and iOS titles.

An exclusive first look at Assassin’s Creed III gameplay footage will be shown in a fully-enclosed theater at the booth. The game’s new hero Connor will head up the thrilling new installment of the beloved Assassin’s Creed franchise that is set in Colonial America during the American Revolution. Session attendees will also receive a special-edition Assassin’s Creed III-branded item.

During the show, PAX East attendees will also have the chance to truly immerse themselves in the Far Cry 3 universe and identify with one of Far Cry 3’s most insane characters, Vaas. On Friday, acclaimed tattoo artist Suze, from The Hourglass Tattoo Parlor in Boston, will be offering Far Cry fans a unique opportunity to obtain real tattoos from a selection of tribal designs inspired by the game. For those that aren’t ready to commit to a tattoo, there will also be two Far Cry 3 mohawk stations on Saturday and Sunday where visitors can get mohawk haircuts in the same style of the game’s feature villain, Vaas. People who obtain a tattoo or mohawk at Ubisoft’s booth will receive a Far Cry 3 tank top, modeled after the very one Vaas sports in-game.

Consumer Booths

PAX East attendees who visit Ubisoft’s booth can play some of this year’s most highly anticipated multiplayer titles like Far Cry 3, Mad Riders, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and the free-to-play PC game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online.

Additionally, I Am Alive will be playable at the booth, along with iOS games Babel Rising, Monster Burner, MotoHeroz and Prince of Persia Classic HD.

Not only are attendees able to play many of Ubisoft’s upcoming releases, but they can also take advantage of pre-order incentives for a few of Ubisoft’s biggest games at the show. Pre-order offers include:
