E3 2010: Ubisoft Reveals Project Dust, New Rayman

The last part of Ubisoft's conference we will report involves the announcement of a couple new digital titles and another digital project, which isn't exactly a game.

The first is code-named Project Dust, in collaboration with Eric Chahi, who hasn't been active in the industry for nearly 12 years but still gave us gems like Heart of Darkness and Another World. This new game is set to be digitally distributed on "unnamed platforms" this coming spring and believe it or not, the video you see below does come directly from in-game footage. It certainly looks like an intriguing concept and we always love original and innovative new titles for the PSN...assuming it actually comes to the PSN, of course. We can't imagine why it wouldn't be multiplatform but in the world of digital downloads, things are a little different...

The other downloadable game holds a very recognizable name: Rayman Origins. There should be plenty of colorful and wonderfully designed environments, and the title will combine co-op with a singular atmosphere and style that everyone remembers from past entries. The last digital project on the list is maniaplanet; Ubisoft cites the popularity of trackmania and with the latest "mania," gamers can play "one of the three different gaming types," which are FPS, racing, or role-playing. Design your own levels, generate your own content, etc, etc, etc. Betas will be on the way later this year.

Okay, that should be it for Ubisoft's stuff. Next up for us- Sony's press conference at 12:00 p.m. PST.

As a reminder to everyone, check the forums for recent giveaway details. I'm going to Tweet the link, too, but Twitter is "over capacity" right now, so-

It's 11:30 eastern on g4tv, but that means they'll have the g4 ppl chatting and guessing whats to come, I think nintendo is going before sony tho, so not sure what time sony is actually starting.

Well after watching the spike tv microsoft conference and all the g4tv coverage from day 1 of e3, overall I am extremely underwhelmed.

Ea was the only saving grace of the day. They showed real games, for gamers. I am super excited for NFS Hot Pursuit, that game looks awesome. Great graphics, great looking gameplay, being able to chase down or run from your friends, this will be uber awesome.

Dead space 2 looks good, more about The old republic, Ea had a great show. M$ had the most boring and ridiculous show. With kinect if you talk about your xbox it'll interrupt what you're doing by bringing up the menu, so I guess xbox will be like fight club, we don't say xbox unless we need the menu.

Ubisoft, wow, uber disappointing. The games were displayed well to the point that most of them didn't make any sense, what was the point of that dumb laser tag game? Run back and forth while sometimes shooting a target?

Does the rayman game have a create mode, who knows they didn't make it clear. Maniaplanet, great, tell us a concept, show hardly anything from it, and it's only on pc. Meh, I really am glad tomorrow is sony, heck nintendo will be much more interesting than most of day 1.

Sorry to rant, but day 1 of e3 was just incredibly disappointing, game expo of the year and they brought weak tea.

now this is what i like to see.
something so bizarre and weird i have to rub my eyes to make sure im not seeing things, than go for a trip down to my local optometrist for a eye exam.
im sick of playing the same sh*t over and over again, its about bloody time someone had the cahones to stand above everyone else and give us something bizarre and different.

as for rayman its about f*cking time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i loved the previous rayman games, up there in the shenanigans of my favorite cartoony games!!!!!

o, btw im on fire this week!
first i was right about devils third being the exclusive, and now hot pursuit.
i knew criterions game was a reboot of NFS best series!!!
its about fu*king time EA listened to their fans, stopped ramming this black, underground, undercover ect ect crap down our thoughts and finally give us what we want!!!!!!!!!!
wait, EAs actually listening to their fans!????
this just in, its snowing in hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If heart of Darkness was what I think it was, that was awesome (I couldn't be bothered looking it up to check). maniaplanet sounds like LBP (judging by what you've written there), but MM does it well enough for me to not be interested.
That is all.
Peace.

The Rayman Origins trailer was hilarious. apparently it's been worked on by 5 persons only and the sprites are hand drawn. Whether it's true or not, the game looks funny and awesome.

Dunno what to think about Dust yet. The trailer didn't actually pique my interest.
