Ubisoft started its conference off pretty strong, with guitarist Jerry Cantrell introducing the company's new Rocksmith game. They continued with host Aisha Tyler, who plays Lana in 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 lets 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, Blacklist features single-player and co-op modes that give you the chance 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, the Spies vs. Mercs competitive mode is back!

Rayman Legends

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

An all new free-to-play hack and slash PC game that looks like it won't be skimping on humor.  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. (Currently in Open Beta)

Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs is the NSA's nightmare and dream mixed all into one. The idea is that nothing is anonymous; you take on the role of a vigilante 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.

Just Dance 2014

Are you ready to dance? If so, Just Dance 2014 will be coming to all consoles, allowing up to 6 players to dance at once! Get ready to plan some parties!

Rabbids Invasion

The weird looking...rabbit things are back! Based on previous Rabbids games, but now taking on the form of a sort of TV show, Rabbids Invasion is a TV show you can play, interacting with the story in missions. Great fun for the whole family!

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

This game looks downright fantastic, but what else can you expect from this highly successful series? Play the role of an all new Assassin, Edward Kenway...who also happens to be a pirate.

With sea, ship, and land battles to be had, the action is as intense and swashbuckling as ever. According to Ubisoft, this will be the largest open world Assassin's Creed made so far. Absolutely stunning in its effects, the game will take you all over the world, from the Caribbean to Havana.

Trials Fusion (and Frontier)

Trials, the game that has always guaranteed that you will be screaming at your screen is back. Play Trials: Fusion on your console, and then hop into Trials: Frontier on your mobile devices! Have fun failing to make jumps, over and over again, no matter where you are.

Tom Clancy's The Division

This game looks incredible. A pandemic has dropped, and the world is in pure chaos. As an agent, it's up to you to help try and restore some order as a member of Division 51, which was formed in the event of a pandemic of this proportion.

The game is open-world, and you can play with your friends with drop-in, drop-out gameplay. Find weapons, items, and more as you respond to threats and help others in the city of New York.

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Back in development with Obsidian after the resale of rights from THQ, the setup for this one is South Park meets role-playing meets adventure. What could go wrong?

The Crew

Ubisoft finished the day off with The Crew, an all-new driving game. Essentially, you have the whole United States as a playground (No seriously, the WHOLE United States).

Your goal is to choose and modify your car for different situations, and complete goals and challenges as you seek to take down a criminal organization. In a persistent and always-on world, evyerthing can be done either solo or co-op with friends and people you meet as you play.

Form a crew of multiple cars, and work together on each and every challenge if you wish. With thousands of 20-second trials that will give you EXP, cash, skills, and more, you can explore all of the United States with your car. With the option to customize every single part of your car as well, you have 100% control over how you play this game.
