Platform Nintendo WiiU
Release Date from the 30th Nov.
At last weeks Nintendo Direct webcast Ubisoft showcased its strong line up for the new WiiU console. Games like Assassins Creed 3, Marvel Avengers, Just Dance 4, Rayman Legends and ZombiU mark Ubisoft’s positioning as the lead third party developer on the platform.
A strong lineup is important for any console launch, it is important to get the big games from Ubisoft’s line up like the stunning Rayman and of course the upcoming smash hit Assassin’s Creed 3, but it is also important to release some exclusive titles.
Ubisoft’s first WiiU exclusive is the London based ZombiU. Billed as a mixture of Dead Island and DayZ ZombiU makes use of the WiiU’s touch screen controller to act as the inventory allowing players to quickly swap items around without messing with menu’s. Another really fun feature we discovered while playing ZombiU recently is that when your character dies you respawn as a new character. Why do this? Well for the very simple yet very cool reason that your previous character was bitten. When you get back to the location you previously died at there is your old character a snarling drooling blood hungry zombie ready to attack you.
ZombiU makes a very important statement that the WiiU is looking to adult themed games this time around. Ubisoft have created a gory, frightening experience that is also a very difficult game.
Assassin’s Creed® III:
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Connor, the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars.
