Five of Ubisoft’s best action games to choose from
Assassin’s Creed® III brings the story-rich legacy of the Assassin’s Creed® franchise to 18th century North America, expanding the action while improving existing urban traversal and close-quarters combat. One of the biggest games of 2012, Assassin’s Creed® III will allow gamers the chance to discover more of the millennia-old conspiracies that have shaped world history, and promises to be a feast of cerebral action.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction® forces iconic hero Sam Fisher to take on the agency that made him as he becomes involved in a plot of devastating repercussions. Sam travels to diverse locations, using a unique mix of stealth and combat that gives players freedom to choose their own play style.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2® takes players back to Sin City for intense engagements against hostile forces, presenting a smooth blend of third and first person shooter perspectives, plus a sizable multiplayer component.
I Am Alive™ tells the story of a survivor returning to the devastated city of Haverton following a mysterious event that virtually destroyed the world. A clever combination of exploration, platforming action and resource management, the game keeps players on edge at all times.
R.U.S.E® showcases a novel approach to real-time strategy, emphasizing intelligence gathering and risk-taking as players need to formulate battle strategies with limited knowledge of enemy forces. Set during WWII, the main story follows the action from North Africa to the heart of Europe, depicted in lush detail which extends to the multiplayer suite.
