I’m pretty excited about Ubisoft’s PAX Lineup
Here’s a bit of FileFront insider knowledge for you: as we’ve been getting ready for PAX, we’ve been setting appointments with publishers to get handson or demo time with their games. And, somehow, we ended up with Valve and Ubisoft at the same time, and I was schedule for Ubisoft, and the man (Mark Burnham) was booked for Valve. At first I was sad. I was all like, “Man, I wanna get into that Portal 2 s**t.” And then Ubisoft sent out their PAX lineup.
For the first time in the U.S., PAX attendees will get to try out various titles from Ubisoft exclusively for Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, including Your Shape™: Fitness Evolved and MotionSports™, in addition to seeing the first public demo of Child of Eden™. Consumers will also get an opportunity to play H.A.W.X® 2 multiplayer, and see a sneak peak of Outland™, one of Ubisoft’s digital games for PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. In addition, Just Dance® 2 will be available to play onsite at the show.
And they’ll also have a playable demo of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. One of those titles made me excited about visiting Ubisoft at PAX. No, it’s not Assassin’s Creed or HAWX 2. No, I’m most excited about trying out Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, which you might remember as that kinda odd fitness game they rolled out at E3. It looks pretty sublime, to say the least, and I’m always interested in this kind of “different” gaming experience.
Anyway, that’s what Ubisoft is bringing to the table at PAX. To recap:
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved
Child of Eden
