Ubisoft announces Comic-Con 2012 lineup



Quite a few other publishers have revealed their Comic-Con 2012 lineups, and just a short time ago Ubisoft finally tossed theirs into the mix.

Ubi confirmed that they will be showing off Assassin’s Creed III, The Expendables 2 Videogame, Just Dance 4 and Marvel Avengers Battle For Earth, in one way or another.

Their titles will be scattered everywhere though, and not all will be present at their own booth, so make note of where to find them. They have also announced a pair of panels as well, so make sure to read on for the details to find out where and when to check them out.

Today, Ubisoft announced its staggering Comic-Con International: San Diego lineup, which includes a diverse sampling of titles, like Assassin’s Creed III, The Expendables 2 Videogame, Just Dance 4 and Marvel Avengers Battle For Earth. In addition to hands-on time with some of the most widely anticipated titles, fans will also have access to several panels featuring Ubisoft titles over the course of the convention.

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.
