With Ubisoft having a huge list of titles coming out in the near future, we learned that they will be premiering several of them, if not a lot of them at Gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany, between August 5th to August 9th. This includes their upcoming titles such as Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate, For Honor, Just Dance® 2016, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Siege, Tom Clancy’s The Division™, Trackmania® Turbo and more will be playable for those of you who go.

Since their announcements, many of them have yet to be playable for fans, and for the first time, you’ll get to play the upcoming titles. Where can you do this? Ubisoft’s booth (Hall 6.1, space B020) will have the opportunity to get hands-on time with all of the Ubisoft games present on the show floor. This includes Aa new Assassin’s Creed Syndicate playable demo will benefit from the biggest installation of its kind for Ubisoft to date, which means this game is huge, and will challenge you in new ways never seen before. Ontop of that, fans will also get to take their tactical minds to engage in the hands-on multiplayer battles in For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Pods also will be available for Anno 2205™, Might and Magic® Heroes® VII and Trackmania Turbo, which means you’ll get to enjoy these in new ways never seen before!

Visitors that want to, will be able to take a ride on the Rabbids Virtual Reality Ride, which will have attendee’s try out a VR headset and motion seat in order to create a fully immersive VR experience. In addition to this, they’ve also announced a rather packed set of on-stage activities for attendees that also include some presentations showcasing titles like Just Dance® 2016 and The Crew® Wild Run. Fans also can participate in Ubisoft’s Cosplay Contest and numerous other community activities, prizes and performances planned throughout the event, including:

Just Dance World Cup: Players will be able to participate in Live Event qualifications on the dedicated Just Dance World Cup booth (located in hall 10.1, space B043) and have the chance to be selected for the Grand Finale taking place at the Paris Games Week in late October.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Showmatch: On Saturday, August 8 from 4 pm to 7 pm CET, four teams composed of some of the best Rainbow Six players from around the world will participate in a 5v5 PC match on the ESL booth, showcasing some of the most exciting competitive features the game has to offer. The show will be available live on Twitch.tv/Ubisoft.

Once again, Ubisoft has identified a group of fans who represent the passion and diversity of its gaming communities to welcome to Gamescom as “Star Players”. These visitors will receive a full VIP experience, with the opportunity to exchange directly with the Ubisoft dev teams and participate in the activities on offer in the Uplay Lounge.

Gamescom is a huge event for us and for players, and this year’s show promises to be one of our biggest and most fan-focused ever,” said Alain Corre, EMEA Executive Director, Ubisoft. “Understanding players’ initial thoughts and reactions to the games we’re developing is incredibly important, and by making the Ubisoft games at Gamescom playable, we’re hoping that attendees will have a much more interactive and memorable experience and that their feedback will be even more applicable to our creative teams.”

If you attend Gamescom 2015, let us know! We’d love to see what you were able to do.
