Ubisoft Announce E3 2006 Video Game Lineup

Showcases 10 Next-Generation Titles, Celebrates 20 Years of Creativity and Innovation

London, UK - MAY 3, 2006 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced its lineup of titles for the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) May 10–12, 2006 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Ubisoft will showcase its titles at booth #924 in the South Hall.

“Our E3 lineup demonstrates Ubisoft’s profound commitment to the next-generation of video games,” said Yves Guillemot, president and chief executive officer of Ubisoft. “Ubisoft is very excited to be introducing ground-breaking new intellectual property and showcasing how we bring innovation to our best-selling franchises. Our award-winning development teams are pushing the limits of what can be achieved and leading the industry into the future.”

Ubisoft lineup for E3 2006:

Assassin’s CreedTM: Experience the power of a feared Assassin in the game that will redefine the action adventure genre for the next generation. Players’ actions will throw the immediate environment into chaos and shape events in this pivotal moment during the Third Crusade.

Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway™: Gearbox Software’s critically acclaimed squad-based WWII shooter launches into the next generation of gaming with amazing graphics and cutting-edge game play features powered by Unreal Engine 3 and a completely redesigned online component. As Matt Baker, lead a squad of real soldiers who think, relate and fight together through the brutal trials of the dramatic Operation Market Garden.

Dark Messiah™ of Might & Magic®: Discover a new breed of PC game that will redefine the Action-RPG genre. Powered by an enhanced version of the Source engine from Valve, the second chapter in the new Might & Magic® franchise allows players to experience ferocious combat as an expert warrior, mage, or assassin using a vast array of devastating weapons against vicious creatures in a captivating fantasy environment.

Enchanted Arms™: The first RPG developed exclusively for Xbox 360™, this epic adventure created by FromSoftware in Japan is arriving for the first time in North America and Europe. Enchanted Arms allows players to escape to a fantasy world filled with beautiful cinema-quality graphics, unique characters and bizarre creatures.

Game to be Unveiled: Experience the next-generation project from Ubisoft and Free Radical, the developers of the critically-acclaimed Timesplitters® series for the first time at E3.

Open Season™: Team up with the cast of characters from Sony Pictures Animation’s feature-length CGI film Open Season coming in September. It’s a riotous romp in the great outdoors for kids of all ages when a rowdy brood of forest animals turn the tables on unsuspecting hunters.


Rayman Raving Rabbids™: Developed by famed creative director Michel Ancel, this new installment of the Rayman franchise will be the funniest and zaniest yet. Rayman’s world is threatened by a devastating invasion by the most unexpected creatures and Rayman must battle to save his world and its inhabitants.

Red Steel™: The only original first-person game built from the ground up and exclusively for the Wii™ launch. Red Steel takes full advantage of Nintendo’s innovative controller and provides the unique experience of combined gunplay and swordplay.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent™: The best-selling Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® saga is taking an entirely new direction. In the highly anticipated next chapter, play as a double agent spy for the first time. Take on dual roles of covert operative and ruthless terrorist, where choices of whom to betray and whom to protect affect the outcome of the game.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas: Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® makes its dramatic next-generation debut. Rainbow operatives take to the chaotic streets of Las Vegas as an escalating terrorist siege in “Sin City” threatens to take world terrorism to new heights.

Btw, one intersting thing is that in the PR they clearly state when a game is a console exclusive (Enchant Arm and Red Steel), but for Assassin's Creed they don't do so. Maybe it isn't PS3 exclusive, after all...

Pretty solid. Ubisoft owns next-gen.


I'd guess EA owns TimeSplitters.
I agree. The most is not shit like what comes from EA of THQ.
This is a solid Line-Up. We must only see on which systems these games are developed.

They follow the blue ocean name convention now

Nice lineup btw, one of the strongest ones. Give me some Beyond Good & Evil with that and I'm happy.

lol, that Rayman stuff looks insane. Are those really Wii shots?

Whatever the case is, Ancel is in charge, and that means that it's going to be mine.

So we have 4 games for Wii + Red Steel that is not in your list. Not bad at all !!

So, Ubisoft has 5 games in development for Wii. For now, they are the best supporter for Nintendo's Wii.

The only thing holding that Rayman picture back from looking like it was made out of clay is the poly edges. :( Otherwise the texture work is insane.

Is that screen FROM the Wii build? Oh, and LMFAO @ the kids playing it. :lol :lol :lol
