Valiant Hearts, a game set in WW1, is a gorgeous title, stylized and intriguing, and in a time-period rarely explored in games.

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.

15:45 pm

Shape Up is announced! Working out made fun. Punch asteroids, run on top of a train. Very video-gamey.


15:44 pm

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.

15:37 pm

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.

15:36 pm

Each Assassin will be heavily customizable, though it is unclear if things like gender and appearance are malleable yet.

15:34 pm

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.

Time for an update on The Crew, featuring the entire US, coast-to-coast, with no loading at all.

15:23 pm

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 new villain stabs a man to death. Complains of bloody shoes after and takes a selfie with the main character.

15:03 pm

Here we go! The lights dim, and Ubisoft begins the conference with…a snowy mountainscape. Likely Far Cry 4.
