Ubisoft E3 2011 Press Conference Round-up

New Brothers in Arms, Just Dance, TinTin and Far Cry games announced. More details on TrackMania 2, Ghost Recon and Rayman.
Our third of the major E3 press conference round-ups continues with Ubisoft (see our round-up of EA and Microsoft).
The event kicked off with Rayman: Origins, one of the most bizarre looking games we’ve seen for a while. In fact, the press conference as a whole was rather bizarre, with humour that was so awkward that went through being funny, entered the downright ridiculous and somehow returned to being funny.
Kinda like those ‘so bad that they’re actually good movies’.
Far Cry 3 was announced with a lengthy and rather tasty in-game footage trailer. Surprise, suprise, it’s set in Africa and features lots of shooting, blood and helicopter crashes. The Adventures of TinTin was also shown with a healthy dose of gameplay and a few select words from Steven Spielberg, the director of the upcoming TinTin movie.
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 was also debuted with an intro from Gearbox Software’s ever cheerful Randy Pitchford. 
There were also more tidbits of info and trailers for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, TrackMania 2,  Raving Rabbids (for Kinect) and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
Here’s our break down of the top stories to come out of Ubisoft’s E3 2011 Press Conference (trailers/images contained within each story):
