Ubisoft started their conference off pretty strong, with guitarist Jerry Cantrell introducing their new Rocksmith game. They continued with host Aisha Tyler, who plays Lana from Archer, and then followed up with an impressive showing of games. With lots of details about each game, let’s get down to the Ubisoft E3 2013 Recap.
Opening your game intro off with Jerry Cantrell is pretty awesome, let’s be honest. Even more awesome, is the all new session mode, which let’s you play a song and while you play, the band you choose jams with you. Cantrell started playing, and the game started adapting to his playing live. Pretty awesome if you want to learn guitar, right?
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Splinter Cell, and Sam Fisher, are back. Coming August 20th, single player and co-op modes give you the ability to use your stealth abilities to stop the blacklist. Splinter Cell: Blacklist introduces a whole new gameplay mechanic, called “killing in motion”, allowing the player to highlight targets and take them out in quick succession, with a new fluidity while on the run. On top of that, Spies vs. Mercs competitive mode is back!!
Rayman is back! As always, this lovable platformer is ready for some super fun, single player or co-op action.
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

Build your castle, fill it with traps to keep other players from your treasure, choose your hero and try and take treasure from other players. The goal is to defeat other people’s defenses and take their loot, all while keeping others from taking yours. Become the richest of them all in The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot.

Watch Dogs is the NSA’s nightmare and dream mixed all into one. The idea that nothing is anonymous, you take on the role with all of the information he wants at his fingertips (in the form of a smartphone), bent on taking down the people in the world who try and get away with things that just shouldn’t be gotten away with. Watch Dogs could very well be the ultimate spy game, and the Sony E3 Presentation showed us even more.
