E3 2012 Trailers: Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed III

I just finished watching Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference and I was completely surprised/shocked by how much I enjoyed a couple of their game presentations. After the horrendously boring Microsoft and EA pressers, I was getting worried about this year’s E3. I was beginning to think Sony or Nintendo would have to save this year’s show… But Ubisoft seems to have taken care of that.

The best title by far (so far) at E3 has to be Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. This game came out of nowhere and totally blew me away. It wasn’t because the game is set in Chicago… But man, the city sure did look amazing in the demo. The game looks to be a science fiction story set in somewhat modern times– while also kinda crossing into cyberpunk territory.

Down below you’ll find the Watch Dogs trailer and demo… Which kept getting better and better the more I watched it. In some ways, the end was the most interesting part. It leaves a lot of questions about how the game will play… But it also got me excited enough that I want to keep up with news for the game.

The other game at the press conference that looks somewhat exceptional is Assassin’s Creed III. This IP has been on my radar ever since it came out but for some reason I never got around to buying or playing them. The demo and trailer for AC3 makes me want to change that. I know one of my brothers is a huge fan of the series so I’m going to borrow his copies as soon as I get the chance.

All the trailers and demos can be found after the jump.

    Jose, if your are indeed going to play the AC games I suggest wikiing the story for AC1. The game was extremely monotonous in a sense that it always played the same mini-missions and always followed the same routine before every major assassination. Thankfully AC2 rectified all this and was amazing as a result.

      I have heard that about the first AC. Maybe I’ll play it up to a point where it starts getting repetitive and just wiki the rest of the story. Thanks for reminding me about that.

      • I did the exact same thing. I had to stop playing the first one because I couldn’t stand it, and I decided to “finish” the game by watching a youtube tutorial. The second AC is awesome.

    The Assassin’s Creed games are really fun. The thing I lost most about them is the amount of history incorporated. I’ve always loved games that felt unique and educational, too. UBISOFT is just more evidence of Europe’s burgeoning in the game market, specifically France 😀

    I definitely want to check this out. I recommend Assassin’s Creed too, which took place in 15th century, Italy. The first AS was good, too, with its story during the 3rd crusade. Similar to Hickman’s comics, where history and fiction collide.

    Nice to see ASIII still has that Tomb Raideresque feel. If the European gamers know one thing; it’s adventure!

    Jose, will you be checking out Sleeping Dogs?

    One more thing to add, WATCH DOGS looks hardcore.

    This is the kind of game the 21st century was waiting for. None of those ridiculous 1st person war shooters. This rushes from the veins of William Gibson, with a side order of Jack Womack, the kind of stuff Ridley Scott daydreams about, I bet.

    This is innovative storytelling, the kind that’s not easily found in America anymore. France is doing something wild here. I can’t wait 😀
