Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. Looks impressively fun and actually causes Aisha Tyler to cry from joy. We can empathize.
The demo being shown features a very tense, action-packed, co-op hostage rescue.
Yves Guillemot arrives to discuss a last new title. The audience is excited for what people assume to be a new Ghost Recon.
The trailer is very emotional and somber. Ubisoft has a unique, promising title on their hands. The last shot of the trailer is of a dog sadly resting near hundreds of graves.
Valiant Hearts, a game set in WW1, is a gorgeous title, stylized and intriguing, and in a time-period rarely explored in games.
And the winner is…America! Shape Up will sell well here.
Americans vs the French, in a Shape Up pushup contest. There’s a lot riding on this moment.
The presenter, Charles Gutteau, works out as Eye of the Tiger plays. He appears to break quite a sweat. He plays against a ghost of himself, breaking his record.
Shape Up is announced! Working out made fun. Punch asteroids, run on top of a train. Very video-gamey.
The lone assassin peers out at his target as a crowd of hundreds gathers to hear the soon-to-be-deceased man speak. Incredible display of next-gen tech.
We are treated to a live demo of the game. The UI is quite subtle, only appearing when near something relevant. Emphasizes the stunning visuals.
Each Assassin will be heavily customizable, though it is unclear if things like gender and appearance are malleable yet.
The four Assassins fight through the courtyard, covering each other and generally wreaking havoc. They reach their target and leave him to the angry citizens.
The trailer features a bird flying slowly through the middle of a revolution. Citizens storm the gates as four assassins run between the throngs.
Alex Amancio, creative director, here to talk about Assassin’s Creed Unity, set in Paris, in the 18th century.
The Crew, November 11th, 2014. Beta is available!
Julian Gerighty, creative director of The Crew, steps in to talk more about the game.
The Crew’s ambitious trailer shows off several landmarks, as cars race in-between valleys, in forests, and on bridges. Visuals are quite impressive.
Time for an update on The Crew, featuring the entire US, coast-to-coast, with no loading at all.
The hero of the trailer and his squad step in to help a man being beaten. Flames erupt as more baddies emerge. A sign says Take back New York as the trailer ends.
The Division’s new trailer begins. A timelapse of New York falling into disarray, set to the sounds of weeping parents.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is now up! Petter Mannerfelt, producer is speaking about the ruined world of the game.
Alberta won the Just Dance Now danceoff. She seems happy.
Just Dance Now has no limit to players taking part. Dozens of young people in brightly colored clothes then dance to a Lady Gaga song, each holding a smartphone.
Jason Altman arrives, wielding a smartphone, to announce Just Dance Now.
Just Dance 2015 features lots of people dancing. Tagline is “Power to the Community.” Out in October.
Aisha Tyler admits to being a poor dancer, but is still happy to announce Just Dance 2015. Featuring “Happy”, a little known song.
Aisha Tyler takes the stage! This is her third time here.
Dan Hay, creative director of Ubisoft Montreal, steps out to describe Far Cry 4!
The new villain stabs a man to death. Complains of bloody shoes after and takes a selfie with the main character.
A tense scene plays out from 1st-person as armed men stop a bus containing the main character. Things go poorly and bullets fly.
Here we go! The lights dim, and Ubisoft begins the conference with…a snowy mountainscape. Likely Far Cry 4.
The Ubisoft Conference will begin in less than 15 mins.
