Ubisoft to offer 'diverse sampling' of upcoming titles at Comic-Con
Today, Ubisoft announced an impressive Comic-Con lineup, which includes a "diverse sampling of titles", like Assassin’s Creed 3, The Expendables 2 Videogame, Just Dance 4 and Marvel Avengers Battle For Earth.
On display at Comic-Con and playable on the show floor will be Assassin's Creed 3, which will also have an exclusive T-shirt available to fans who pre-order. There will also be a live stage demo being held on Thursday that will feature new gameplay and details about the Assassin's Creed 3 Steelbook.
Ubisoft's recently announced The Expendables 2 Videogame, which expands upon the universe in the upcoming action movie, will also be playable. Fans who check out the Lions Gate and PlayStation booths will have the opportunity to play as mercenaries Barney Ross, Gunner Jensen, Hale Casear, and Yin Yang squad-based action game.
Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth will also be showcased at the Marvel booth where you can unleash your inner superhero and play as one of the 20 iconic Marvel superheroes and villains including The Hulk, Thor, Venom, and Magneto. At the "Marvel Video Games" panel on Saturday, July 14, producer Pierre Leroux and director Dan Vargas will unveil a brand new Comic-Con trailer and present gameplay.
Lastly, popular dancing game Just Dance 4, which was unveiled at E3, will be at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge in the Marriott Hotel, located across from the Convention Center.
Overall, it looks like a solid lineup for Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed 3 and Just Dance 4 are two highly anticipated titles and while I'm hesitant about Marvel Avengers due to its Kinect and Wii U exclusivity, it still has potential to sell well because of the hype surrounding the film.
