Today, Ubisoft revealed its lineup of titles that will be shown at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), including Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Tom Clancy’s The Division, The Crew, Valiant Hearts The Great War and more. Ubisoft will host a media briefing to deliver new content from its upcoming titles, and also will provide a hands-on experience at its booth for E3 attendees and via the company’s Uplay lounge for Uplay members.

Ubisoft’s E3 media briefing, held at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, starts at 3 p.m. PDT (around 11PM UK) on June 9 and will be hosted by actress and comedian Aisha Tyler. The briefing will be broadcast live and on demand on Ubisoft’s YouTube channel and Twitch channel. A pre-show – starting at 2:45 p.m. PDT – will look back at past E3s and a post-show hosted by Tyler will welcome back key speakers to answer questions from fans.

Starting June 10, E3 attendees can visit Ubisoft’s booth,– #1023, situated in the South Hall at the Los Angeles Convention Center — to discover the company’s highly-anticipated games, including:

  • Assassin’s Creed Unity, re-imagined and built from the ground-up for the new-gen of gaming, immerses players as never before into the terror and brutality of the French Revolution.
  • Far Cry 4, sequel to the #1 rated shooter of 2012*, where players will experience the most expansive and immersive Far Cry ever, in an entirely new, massive open-world.
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division, set in a chaotic and devastated New York City, players assume the role of a sleeper agent activated to help save a failing society. Discover an immersive open-world game that combines the Tom Clancy series’ signature authenticity with RPG action, exploration and teamwork.
  • The Crew, the revolutionary action-driving game that takes gamers on a reckless ride throughout a massive, open world recreation of the United States brimming with exciting challenges and populated by other real players.

Finally, the Uplay lounge is back and is being expanded to enable more Uplay members to experience E3 firsthand. More than a thousand members will be able to, for example, enjoy a hands-on experience of Ubisoft’s E3 line-up and other titles or talk to Ubisoft’s development teams about their favourite games. The Uplay lounge will be located at The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. For those not able to be in Los Angeles, a version of the lounge experience will be available via uplaylounge.com, an immersive website that will feature exclusive content, live streaming on Twitch — including online chats with Ubisoft’s development teams — and more. Fans can already start submitting their questions to the teams here.

“2014 is the most exciting year the gaming industry has seen in a while. At E3, we can’t wait to share our future of gaming,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO, Ubisoft

“Ubisoft teams have fully embraced this new generation and will demonstrate how they are bringing breakthrough innovations to our beloved franchises and beyond in order to offer players the most original and memorable gaming experiences.”
