E3 2013: Ubisoft Press Conference Live Blog

E3 2013: Ubisoft Press Conference Live Blog

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an assassin. That and more at Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference!

It’s bound to be a great event, full to the brim of awesome games. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Watch Dogs and likely some other hidden gems will all be on show, and we’ll be covering every minute of it. Check out the live blog right here.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:17 pm

So that’s all fun. Thanks for joining us for our live blog, and stay tuned to Talkingship.com for all your E3 coverage!

Antony June 10, 20135:16 pm

And there it is. Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Antony June 10, 20135:14 pm

Ubisoft said they were entering a new genre and apparently that genre is third-person shooter.

Antony June 10, 20135:13 pm

I assume these voices are players rather than AI characters?

Shaxster June 10, 20135:13 pm

Ghost Recon, maybe?

Shaxster June 10, 20135:12 pm

This is an online MMO RPG as well, apparently. I’m so confused.

Antony June 10, 20135:11 pm

It would make sense to be a Tom Clancy game.

Antony June 10, 20135:11 pm

Dark Winter and Black Friday would have been better names but oh well.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:11 pm

Apparently this ties into Tom Clancy.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:10 pm

This looks really cool. It’s called The Division, apparently.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:08 pm

What series is this part of????

Shaxster June 10, 20135:07 pm

This has to be related to Watch Dogs.

Antony June 10, 20135:07 pm

It’s a bioterror attack, Shaxster. Put the influenza virus on a single banknote on Black Friday and you destroy the world. Apparently.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:07 pm

This is depressing. Stop telling me how we’re all going to die, Ubisoft.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:06 pm

Ah. It’s a plague game.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:06 pm

What’s this about then? A virus? Capitalism?

Antony June 10, 20135:06 pm

Massive have recently been working on Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, apparently. News to me.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:06 pm

Money money money.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:05 pm

This looks a lot like the Watch Dogs reveal.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:05 pm

We’re vulnerable, apparently.

Antony June 10, 20135:05 pm

Massive Games, behind the Ground Control series, apparently showing off a new IP here. Interesting.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:05 pm

One last thing. Made by Ubisoft Massive.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:03 pm

The games complement each other. 2013: The Year of the Second Screen.

Antony June 10, 20135:03 pm

At least if I don’t manage to rob enough banks to afford an Xbox One I can still play it.

Antony June 10, 20135:03 pm

Trials Fusion will be on 360, nice.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:02 pm

Ah, two new Trials games! A mobile one and a next gen one. Cool.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:02 pm

New Trials game!

Antony June 10, 20135:02 pm

Oh, I’m daft. All that talk of next-gen got me confused. Trials is better, though. Much better.

Antony June 10, 20135:01 pm

Beyond Good and Evil? Sounds like it from that introduction.

Shaxster June 10, 20135:01 pm

Hnggg. I want.

Antony June 10, 20135:00 pm

The song is “Full Circle” by Half Moon Run in case you were wondering. Awesome track, fitting for this.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:59 pm

This is really beautiful.

Antony June 10, 20134:59 pm

Here comes in-game footage of Black Flag.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:59 pm

I really, really hope this is better than 3 was. We’re seeing gameplay now.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:57 pm

This has been in development for two years. That’s good.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:55 pm

The combat looks much better. I hope the controls are improved.

Antony June 10, 20134:55 pm

This looks suitably epic.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:55 pm

Naval battles, obviously.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:54 pm

Beer bottle SMASH.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:54 pm

So much badassery.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:53 pm

This game will either be great or terrible.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:53 pm

New AC4 trailer.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:52 pm

Assassin’s Creed time.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:52 pm

It ruins the pacing of a TV show.

Antony June 10, 20134:51 pm

I’m not the target audience for this, obviously, kids are. This is a great game for kids.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:50 pm

This looks stupidddd.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:50 pm

Haha, of course this is partnered with Xbox One.

Antony June 10, 20134:49 pm

Because that was a trailer. Not the real thing.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:48 pm

Not seeing how that was in any way interactive, to be honest.

Antony June 10, 20134:48 pm

I’m surprised a Rabbids TV show didn’t happen sooner, to be honest.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:47 pm

You can play the TV show. Because logicccc.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:47 pm

Rayman Rabbids TV show. Good business move.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:46 pm

I do prefer Dance Central. But there’s no Dance Central this year so this will do.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:46 pm

I am so hyped for this.

Antony June 10, 20134:46 pm

I’m more of a Dance Central guy.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:44 pm

I will play this at Eurogamer. It will be filmed. You will laugh.

Antony June 10, 20134:44 pm

Oh god, we’re about to find out what dance Shaxster will be doing at Eurogamer this year.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:44 pm

Yay Just Dance 2014.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:44 pm

Was that it? Please give me more.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:42 pm

Don’t tell me what to do.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:42 pm

This is CGI fo sho.

Antony June 10, 20134:42 pm

You can’t put hyphens in a hashtag. Learn to internet.

Antony June 10, 20134:42 pm

I don’t think this is gameplay but I like it.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:41 pm

Oh look a strip club. #18-35yearoldmales

Shaxster June 10, 20134:41 pm

This game’s become oddly relevant now that Prism’s leaked.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:40 pm

Gameplay? Please be gameplay.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:39 pm

It is there. But I dislike it. I hate things like that.

Antony June 10, 20134:39 pm

I don’t care if the underscore isn’t really there. I choose to pretend that it is.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:39 pm

Don’t underscore it. Please don’t underscore it.

Antony June 10, 20134:39 pm

And here comes Watch_Dogs.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:39 pm

Watch Dogs time.

Antony June 10, 20134:38 pm

2013: The year of the fifth player.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:38 pm

To be fair that is awesome. Making a car on my iPad and then playing it on my TV.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:38 pm

OH GREAT. MOBILE INTEGRATION.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:38 pm

And now we’re seeing the social/rival crews aspect. That’s pretty great.

Antony June 10, 20134:38 pm

I am enjoying this so much that I keep forgetting to liveblog how much I’m enjoying this.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:36 pm

This game looks really great.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:35 pm

THAT’S WHAT THEY PROMISED ME, ANTONY.

Antony June 10, 20134:35 pm

I’m expecting there to be roads where you warp to a different area. You will not have the whole of America in a game.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:34 pm

The whole of America in a game? Impossiblez.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:34 pm

This game seems overly ambitious. It’s GOT to have a catch.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:34 pm

You can strip the car. Sexy.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:33 pm

‘Paul is wearing a hat so he’s not very good’. Brilliant.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:33 pm

You can drive to Las Vegas and Miami and oh my god this is awesome.

Antony June 10, 20134:32 pm

I’ll be driving a Vauxhall Corsa with obnoxious flame decals and a stupidly large spoiler. Keep an eye out.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:32 pm

And someone else is in the mountains near Chicago. This is so cool. Can I drive coast to coast? I want to be able to drive coast to coast.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:31 pm

Looks like a typical NFS race. Which is a good thing.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:31 pm

Showing us gameplay now. Starting off in NYC.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:30 pm

Just to advancely notify you: there’s going to be a Talkingship UK crew.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:29 pm

The entire game is an online persistent world. Very clever.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:29 pm

The world sounds huge. The whole of the USA, apparently. Not buying it.

Antony June 10, 20134:28 pm

Need for Speed meets MAG. Boom.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:27 pm

Woahhhhh. There are lots of different crews. Coming to next gen. in 2014.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:27 pm

Ah. It’s totally multiplayer. THAT’S why.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:26 pm

Not seeing anything spectacular about it though. Why buy this over NFS?

Antony June 10, 20134:26 pm

The Crew looks a lot like Need for Speed: Most Wanted. This is a very good thing to look like.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:26 pm

This could be fun, I guess.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:26 pm

Cars everywhere. Forza, The Crew, Need for Speed. CArrrr

Shaxster June 10, 20134:25 pm

2013: The Year of the Car

Shaxster June 10, 20134:25 pm

This is a really bad time for my stream to die.

Antony June 10, 20134:24 pm

I’ve actually kind of missed Yves Guillemot.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:24 pm

Next gen time. So fun.

Antony June 10, 20134:23 pm

I would type more here but I think I’m in some kind of coma.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:22 pm

I have never disliked anything Matt and Trey have done. So I’m sure I’ll love this. AND IT’S COMING THIS YEAR.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:22 pm

Oh god this looks brilliant.

Antony June 10, 20134:22 pm

I like South Park and I like video games so liking this makes sense.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:21 pm

YES SOUTH PARK.

Antony June 10, 20134:21 pm

*bleep* Ubisoft are *bleep* *bleep* trying too hard.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:21 pm

Well this got mature very quickly.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:20 pm

Is this supposed to be funny?

Shaxster June 10, 20134:20 pm

All in One. Input One. Xbox One.

Antony June 10, 20134:20 pm

This is like some weird Pixar movie trailer.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:19 pm

It’s some weird F2P game on the interwebs.

Antony June 10, 20134:19 pm

I am so confused about all of this right now.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:19 pm

Ah, he’s trying to get people to play his game that no one plays.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:18 pm

Soooo why are they talking about this here?

Shaxster June 10, 20134:17 pm

This isn’t a new game. This has been announced before, and is currently in beta.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:17 pm

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. What is this?

Shaxster June 10, 20134:16 pm

The musical map in the demo is one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had.

Antony June 10, 20134:16 pm

This looks like silly fun, which is what Rayman is all about. Can’t complain, I guess.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:16 pm

Ooh, competitive multiplayer. Looks great.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:15 pm

And the demo for Rayman Legends makes this seem even better.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:15 pm

You missed out: Rayman Origins is a superb game.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:15 pm

Nowwww we’re getting gameplay.

Antony June 10, 20134:15 pm

The last Rayman game I honestly played was back on the Game Boy Colour.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:14 pm

This trailer’s not as great as it should be. Why isn’t it gameplay?

Shaxster June 10, 20134:13 pm

This game looks so good. I hope it is good.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:12 pm

Yay Rayman!

Shaxster June 10, 20134:12 pm

This is really a bit tedious. I’m glad that’s over.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:11 pm

I hope the final game has 10 monitors on my screen at once.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:11 pm

BLACKLIST BLACKLIST BLACKLIST

Shaxster June 10, 20134:10 pm

That’s about a week before GTA V as well. Such a poor decision.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:10 pm

Bad move for Splinter Cell, methinks.

Antony June 10, 20134:10 pm

Splinter Cell releasing on the same day as Saints Row 4. Eep.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:09 pm

This game looks haxxor.

Antony June 10, 20134:09 pm

If you work for a game company, I can tell you that a good way to get me excited about video games is to have someone who isn’t Aisha Tyler talking about them.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:08 pm

#caffeinewood

Shaxster June 10, 20134:08 pm

Splinter Cell: Blacklist first. Guess they have to get that out the way.

Antony June 10, 20134:08 pm

There are no stupid questions. Just stupid people. And stupid hosting selections.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:07 pm

I kid, I just want to get some controversy going.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:07 pm

WATCH DOGS 2!

Shaxster June 10, 20134:07 pm

No one is laughing. No one is laughing at all.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:07 pm

Please bring out Mr Caffeine. Please bring our Mr Caffeine.

Antony June 10, 20134:07 pm

Aisha Tyler, hello. Please be better than he-who-shall-not-be-named.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:06 pm

The awkward jokes have begun.

Antony June 10, 20134:06 pm

I miss Rock Band, but now that’s gone I may end up grabbing Rocksmith.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:06 pm

So this game comes out this Fall. How great.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:05 pm

Don’t indulge her.

Antony June 10, 20134:05 pm

#girlwood

Shaxster June 10, 20134:05 pm

Oh look, it’s that woman from Archer.

Antony June 10, 20134:04 pm

Rocksmith 2014. Rhythm games live on, people!

Shaxster June 10, 20134:04 pm

Yup, all new 2014 edition of Rocksmith. How exciting.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:04 pm

If this even uses Kinect (it might not).

Shaxster June 10, 20134:04 pm

Can’t say I see what Kinect actually adds here.

Shaxster June 10, 20134:03 pm

This is Rocksmith, I think.

Antony June 10, 20134:03 pm

Nope, this is Rocksmith. Kinect-assisted, it seems. Pretty awesome.

Antony June 10, 20134:02 pm

Though I wouldn’t put it past Ubisoft for this to be a random throwaway thing.

Antony June 10, 20134:02 pm

Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains kicking off the conference? Well this is interesting. Something to do with Rocksmith, perhaps?

Antony June 10, 20134:01 pm

We’re gearing up, people. Conference #3. Let’s do a thing.
