Ubisoft Press Conference

Ubisoft presented games like Rayman Raving Rabbids TV, Brother in Arms: Hell Highway and Far Cry 2 in the first half the show but we missed the first part. Here is what we saw. (We will add content from the first half the show later. Chances are, that is what you are interested in anyways.)

UPDATE: Here is some of what we missed:

Raymon Raving Rabbids TV
Demo of Rayman Raving Rabbids TV using the balance board on the Wii.

Brother in Arms: Hell Highway
Game will be released this September. Trailer was shown.

Tom Clancy
It is the 10th Anniversary. There has been 55 million units sold worldwide. Endwar trailer shown.

Far Cry 2
Lead designer talks about the game and then demos the game. (footage coming soon)
UPDATE: Here is an interview with the developers. Enjoy

Games For Girls
Special line of games targeted at girls. Introduction of the new girls sports line for DS, Ener-G.

Shaun White Snowboarding Demonstration

A few members from the dev team demoed the upcoming Shaun White Snowboarding game. As the game loads, you are able to practice your moves. The level is a massive open mountain. The devs say it is so large, you may not be able to find locations you once visited very easily, so you can set markers on the map to return later. Shaun White talks about how he likes the free roam nature of the game.

Prince of Persia Trailer and Demonstration
The devs show a bit of the AI cooperative gameplay. The game world is open and depending on the path you choice to take will effect other parts of the game. Combat consist of you versus one enemy. The devs want you to get the feeling of a great boss fight everytime you encounter an enemy. Also, the gameplay has been made more accessible for new players so they can pull off some of the satisfying moves more easily.

Ubisoft ends their show with a trailer to their new IP, I Am Alive.
