Ubisoft announced its PAX Prime lineup featuring Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, The Crew, Toy Soldiers: War Chest, Far Cry 4 and Tetris Ultimate.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to compete in a wide variety of games with The Next Level, Ubisoft’s inclusive competition initiative, and collect several unique PAX Prime items, including PAX pins for The Crew, Far Cry 4 and The Next Level during PAX Prime running from August 29 to September 1 in Seattle, Washington.

PAX Prime attendees can visit the Assassin’s Creed booth (#642) for an exclusive preview of the two upcoming Assassin’s Creed titles: Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue. For the first time in PAX history, attendees can see the costumes of some of their favorite Assassins on display in the Assassin’s Creed booth, including Ezio Auditore de Firenze, Aveline de Grandpré and Arno Victor Dorian.

Assassin’s Creed Unity, available on next-gen consoles and PC, transforms players into Arno, a deft Assassin living in Paris during the height of the French Revolution. Assassin’s Creed Rogue, available on current-gen consoles, follows the story of Shay, a Master Assassin turned Templar who hunts down assassins across the North Atlantic Ocean and New York City during the Seven Years’ War.

The Crew, a massive open world action-driving game, will offer a hands-on demo at booth #832, allowing players to get behind the wheel and drive across the picturesque United States.

The recently announced Toy Soldiers: War Chest will be playable for fans for the first time at booth #832. A mix of tower defense and strategy, players will select their army and choose between commanding the German Empire, led by Kaiser Wilhelm, or the Star Power army, led by the whimsical hero Starbright, to defend their toy box against waves of enemies.

The Far Cry 4 booth, #612, will allow players to step into the alluring yet dangerous world of Kyrat. A hands-on demo of Shangri-La, a new mode and the Himalayas Snow Mission will be playable. Come by the Far Cry 4 booth for daily giveaways and an experience fans will be sure to remember.

Tetris Ultimate will be the subject of two events on Sunday, August 31, a panel and an autograph session. “Tetris: The Video Game That Changed the World” will take place from 3 pm to 4 pm in the Hedgehog Theatre at the Grand Hyatt. Sit down with Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov and Ubisoft developers for a deep dive into the franchise's global impact, personal anecdotes from the last 30 years and a look to the future with its latest iteration, Tetris Ultimate. Alexey Pajitnov will also be holding a meet-and-greet autograph session from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Paramount Theatre, located at 911 Pine Street.

The Next Level, the inclusive competition initiative from Ubisoft, will celebrate its first anniversary with daily competitions challenging participants to show their skills in a variety of games, including the highly anticipated Far Cry 4. Attendees can also enter the PAX Passport Challenge and fans at home can enter online. Watch or participate in the competition at The Next Level booth, #632, or tune into the live stream event.

Attendees can also take advantage of pre-order incentives for some of Ubisoft’s biggest games at the show. Pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue, The Crew and Far Cry 4 include a free t-shirt.
