Ubisoft unveils its E3 2015 plans, including Aisha Tyler’s return as MC

Ubisoft E3 2015
E3 2015 is less than two weeks away, and companies are beginning to ramp up their pre-E3 hype machines. This includes Ubisoft, which has unveiled some of what it has planned for the annual Ubisoft Conference.

While E3 doesn’t officially kick off until June 16, many companies have their own press conferences before the event proper begins. Ubisoft has planned its conference for June 15 at 2:45 p.m. PDT at the Orpheum Theatre. Aisha Tyler will return to MC the event. For those who won’t be attending E3, Ubisoft will be streaming its press conference on YouTube, Twitch, and its own Uplay.

The company hasn’t announced everything it plans to show, but it has mentioned that it will be showing Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and The Division. In addition to these games, Ubisoft promises that it will be showing some previously unannounced titles as well.

Two of the games Ubisoft is showing — Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege are set to ship this year, but The Division was recently delayed (again) to 2016.

Those attending E3 won’t be stuck just watching footage of the games. Ubisoft will have a booth (#1023) in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. The company will also be bringing back the Uplay Lounge where attendees can get hands-on time with the games and “hang out with the developers and compete with other fans.”

Ubisoft will also be hosting a series of “Master Classes” at the Uplay Lounge, where developers do live playthroughs of the games the company is showing. These events will also be streamed live on Twitch.

“E3 is always a very special moment for the entire gaming community because we all come together to share our visions for the future of entertainment and reveal the games into which we’ve been pouring our energy and passion,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said. “The players’ excitement and feedback when they first experience what we’re developing is what motivates us the most.”
