Find out after the jump.


Today, Ubisoft® announced its diverse lineup for PAX Prime, including Assassin’s Creed® III, Far Cry® 3 and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® Blacklist™. Along with the slew of highly anticipated sequels, Ubisoft will be showcasing two Wii U™ exclusives and two upcoming shooters. Attendees can experience Ubisoft’s PAX Prime lineup at booths 612, 632 and 832 at the Washington State Convention Center on August 31 – September 2, 2012.

Ubisoft is bringing the revolution to Seattle as PAX Prime attendees will be able to get a sneak peek of 18th century Boston in Assassin’s Creed III two months prior to launch. Along with the controlled demo on the show floor, the Assassin’s Creed team will be giving attendees the inside scoop on the development of the game during the Assassin’s Creed III PAX Prime Panel, which will be held at the Main Theatre on Friday, August 31 from 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM.

During the show, PAX Prime attendees will have the opportunity to see an extended demo of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist. Sam Fisher is back and in control of the newly formed Fourth Echelon as he seeks to combat a group of rogue nations behind “The Blacklist”, a series of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. assets.

Fans of shooters – both first and third person – will be able to test their skills in three upcoming Ubisoft titles. Far Cry 3, a first-person shooter set on an insane island, will feature a single-player demo showcasing the open world environment. Gamers looking for something more competitive can challenge their friends or foes in ShootMania® Storm and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Online.

Finally, Ubisoft will also be showcasing two Wii U™ exclusives – Rayman® Legends and ZombiU™ – giving gamers early hands-on time with two titles that both fully utilize the features of the Wii U™ GamePad.
