Ubisoft reveals Comic-Con 2012 schedule (SDCC)

Hot on the heels of Capcom we have Ubisoft announcing their plans for the show this year! AC3 will be available to play so get there on preview night or just super early and hope you avoid the extreme lines.


 Fans will be able to check out Assassin’s Creed III, the only title available at Ubisoft’s booth (#5345), from July 12–15 in the Exhibition hall of the San Diego Convention Center. Fans who pre-order Assassin’s Creed III will receive an exclusive Assassin’s Creed III T-shirt.

Recently announced The Expendables 2 Videogame will be playable at the Lions Gate (#4035) and PlayStation® (#4237) booths. The Expendables 2 Videogame expands upon the universe featured in the action star–studded movies, where fans will have the opportunity to play as their favorite mercenaries – Barney Ross, Gunner Jensen, Hale Caesar and Yin Yang.

Marvel Avengers Battle For Earth will be showcased at the Marvel booth (#2329). Fans will have the opportunity to unleash their inner superhero as they play as one of the 20 iconic Marvel superheroes and villains featured in the game, including The Hulk, Thor, Venom and Magneto.

Additionally, Just Dance 4 will be in the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Hotel, located directly across from the Convention Center, from July 12–14.
