Ubisoft Preps Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed and More for Comic-Con
Ubisoft has announced today that it plans on bringing the best of the best to Comic-Con later this week, though you better get some exercise beforehand, because these games are going to be everywhere. Over at the Ubisoft booth (#5345), fans will be able to check out Connor in Assassin’s Creed III. “The Expendables 2” is getting a movie tie-in game, called The Expendables 2 Video Game, by Ubisoft, and it can be played over at the Lions Gate (#4035) and PlayStation (#4237) booths.
Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth is a motion controlled fighter for the Xbox 360 and Wii U, and it will be showcased at the Marvel booth (#2329) where demonstrators will Hulk smash and Magneto…magnet… their way to victory. But if you want to get in on some silly movements instead of just watching them, check out Just Dance 4 at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Hotel across from the convention center.
Ubisoft is also hosting a couple panels during the show. The complete details are as follows (from the official press release):
- Assassin’s Creed III will feature a live stage demo on Thursday, July 12, from 3:30-4:30 pm in Room 6BCF on the Upper Level.
