Ubisoft E3 2012 Press Conference Wrap Up

Ubisoft

Ubisoft, the third publisher of the day to hold their annual pre-E3 press conference, had a number of exciting games to show off this year. First up at the Aisha Tyler hosted event, a troupe of dancers greeted press conference attendees with a choreographed Just Dance 4 announcement, complete with a surprise performance by Flo Rida.

Following Just Dance 4, came something a bit more action oriented - a stage demo of Farcry 3's story mode. Featuring a lush tropical environment, brutal combat, and a decidedly trippy looking end sequence, Farcry3 will be available September 4, for XBox 360, PC, and Playstation 3.

Continuing the action oriented segement of their press conference, Ubisoft showed off the "Welcome to Fourth Echelon" trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, along with a reveal teaser for the upcoming Avengers: Battle for Earth title, coming to Xbox 360 and Wii U this fall.

EA Download 2012 Wrap Up

EA E3

EA held their annual E3 press conference earlier today, kicking things off with a new trailer for Dead Space 3, along with a stage demo for the game's just confirmed co-op mode. Featuring drop in, drop out 2 player, we are introduced to a new character: John Carver. Also introduced was a new, hoth-like ice planet, sometime during act 2 of the game. Opting for less of the atmospheric scares of the first two games, in favor of large scale action, Dead Space 3 will hit stores next February. Next up, came Madden 13. Madden fans can expect a new graphics engine, called infinity, as well as an all new connected careers gameplay mode. Connected careers mode has a story surrounding your league, along with a (fictitious) in-game virtual twitter feed.

On the social gaming front, just as The Sims did last year, Sim City is hitting Facebook in a big way. Sim City: Social will be free to play, and will be coming to Facebook within the next few weeks. On a second Sim City note, a new PC based version has been announced, featuring a new graphics engine, and in a series first, multiplayer. Sim City will be launching for the PC next February.

Microsoft just concluded their annual E3 press conference, and has opened the expo guns blazing. They kicked things off by showcasing eight minutes of Halo 4 single player, which highlighted a new, as yet to be named enemy and new UI elements.

In addition, expanded sports offerings were revealed; NBA, NHL, and new Watch ESPN functionality.
