Ubisoft Contest Will Bring 12 Uplay Members To E3

If you've ever wanted to go to the premier video game event of the year, you'll want to enter this new Ubisoft Uplay contest.

The Uplay Fan Video Contest will choose 12 gamers from the Ubisoft community to attend E3 as VIP "Uplay Ambassadors" on a trip that includes "all-expenses paid travel, access to the E3 show floor, a ticket to the Ubisoft press conference and exclusive meetings with Ubisoft's development teams."

To win, you'll have to make a eye-catching video in one of three categories: Filmmaker (for creative, highly crafted videos), Competitor (creating a Twitch livestream that shows off your skills), or Cosplay (a video that shows off your costume-making craftsmanship). For more details on the rules and how to enter, check the official contest site. Entries will be accepted beginning on April 15 and the contest will close on April 30.

In addition, 1,000 additional players will receive invites to attend the "Uplay Lounge," a pop-up event that will take place near the L.A. Convention Center and feature playable demos of Ubisoft's E3 lineup. For more information on the Uplay Lounge, click here.

Our Take:
There's no event quite like E3. If you've not been, I highly suggest you enter this contest. Who knows? Maybe you can hang out with GI's Dan Ryckert. Just kidding, you don't want to do that.

Ubisoft Reveals Watch Dogs Launch Date

I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when the news broke that Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was cancelled as a launch title for the PS4 and the Xbox One.  It was a game that I was really looking forward to and I just couldn’t wait to pop it into my shiny new system and get lost in the word of digital espionage.  News has just gone out that our wait, fair gamers, is almost over.

Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs will be available worldwide on May 27, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.  Those that were holding out for the Wii U version will have to wait just a little bit longer.  Just how much longer is unclear as a launch date for the Wii U version has yet to be announced.

As has been highly publicized in the past, players assume the role of a new type of hero, Aiden Pearce, as he uses his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) with nothing more than his trusty smartphone to control every element of the city from stop lights and ATM machines to tapping into the police computer files and citizens background records.

I don’t know about you, but I think that this game is really going to show just what can be accomplished on the next-gen systems in regards to gameplay and graphics.
