Ubisoft really rolled out the new titles this year. They are taking over development of their titles, formerly developed by Gameloft, and are kicking it into high gear.
We saw not one but two new Assassin’s Creed titles. Assassin’s Creed Multiplayer Rearmed is the overhead multiplayer game we first saw earlier this year. Removed from the App Store, retooled, redone, and now retitled Rearmed. Also now it works on the iPad. Interesting experiment, but we’ll see if the new version will take off where the old version failed to gain a following.
Assassin’s Creed Recollection is a really impressive looking card based game. Deep and complex, this one will take a while to dig into. I know a couple writers here at 148Apps that will love this game.
Rabbids Go HD was the disappointment of the day. Rather than a real Rabbids game, it’s really just an interactive toy. You can do all the usual stuff, poke, prod, swipe. The Rabbid reacts. Repeat.
Prince of Persia The Prince of Persia we saw seemed to be the original retro title, much like the Prince of Persia Retro available in the App Store now. Same game, but graphics spruced up and made more modern. We’re still stuck with on screen controls and no a real touch control system though. No release date or price is known.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon An early build of this was shown, and while it seemed to be far from complete, we can reveal that they seem to be going for a turn based strategy game set in the Ghost Recon world. Graphically it was pretty impressive, top-down, well done 3D graphics. Could be a good one, we’ll see. No known release date for this one.Posted in: Blog, First Looks
