Ubisoft is bringing their heavy hitters to Gamescom this year
Ubisoft revealed that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, For Honor, Just Dance 2016, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Trackmania Turbo and more will be playable for attendees of Gamescom, the world's largest consumer event in the video game industry, taking place from August 5 - 9 in Cologne, Germany.
For the first time, visitors to Ubisoft’s booth (Hall 6.1, space B020) will have the opportunity to get hands-on time with all of the Ubisoft games present on the show floor. A new Assassin’s Creed Syndicate playable demo will benefit from the biggest installation of its kind for Ubisoft to date. Additionally, guests will be able to engage in hands-on multiplayer battles in For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Pods also will be available for Anno 2205, Might and Magic Heroes VII and Trackmania Turbo.
Visitors will be able to try the Rabbids Virtual Reality Ride, which uses a virtual reality headset and motion seat to create a totally immersive VR experience. In addition, Ubisoft will have a packed program of on-stage activities and presentations, showcasing titles like Just Dance 2016 and The Crew Wild Run. Fans also can participate in Ubisoft’s Cosplay Contest and numerous other community activities, prizes and performances planned throughout the event, including:
Just Dance World Cup: Players will be able to participate in Live Event qualifications on the dedicated Just Dance World Cup booth (located in hall 10.1, space B043) and have the chance to be selected for the Grand Finale taking place at the Paris Games Week in late October.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Showmatch: On Saturday, August 8 from 4 pm to 7 pm CET, four teams composed of some of the best Rainbow Six players from around the world will participate in a 5v5 PC match on the ESL booth, showcasing some of the most exciting competitive features the game has to offer. The show will be available live on Twitch.tv/Ubisoft.
Once again, Ubisoft has identified a group of fans who represent the passion and diversity of its gaming communities to welcome to Gamescom as “Star Players”. These visitors will receive a full VIP experience, with the opportunity to exchange directly with the Ubisoft dev teams and participate in the activities on offer in the Uplay Lounge.
“Gamescom is a huge event for us and for players, and this year’s show promises to be one of our biggest and most fan-focused ever,” said Alain Corre, EMEA Executive Director, Ubisoft. “Understanding players’ initial thoughts and reactions to the games we’re developing is incredibly important, and by making the Ubisoft games at Gamescom playable, we’re hoping that attendees will have a much more interactive and memorable experience and that their feedback will be even more applicable to our creative teams.”
