During the demo, Future Solider's cover system and augmented reality was shown off as well. According to Ubisoft, Ghost Recon: Futre Solider will feature synchronized skills, the most refined cover based system ever, augmented reality, and intuitive team coordination. The company will be demoing the multiplayer during this year's E3, so when we have more details we'll be sure to get them to you throughout our E3 2011 coverage.

Ghost Recon: Future Solider will be hitting the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, and PC in 2012.

Ubisoft Anticipating New Consoles Within 'Next Few Years'From the creators of Brother in Arms comes Brothers in Arms: Furious 4. Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 was announced moments ago during Ubisoft's E3 2011 Press Conference. The game takes an entirely new take on war games and World War 2. In it you'll be kicking Nazi ass with Stitch, Crockett, Chok, and Montana. The demo shows the four tasing, slicing, beheading via a hatchet, and other ridiculous ways to kill nazis. It's how I always pictured Inglorious Basterds to be.

Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 will be releasing in 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Far Cry 3 Announced

Ubisoft has officially announced Far Cry 3.

This shooter from Ubisoft Montreal returns the series to a tropical setting, with the player assuming the role of a man named Jason Brody who finds himself stranded on an island inhabited by a band of insane killers.

The game is being demoed live on stage at Ubisoft’s E3 2011 press conference right now, so stay tuned for more details.

Rayman Origins Episode One Hits PS3, 360 This Christmas

Rayman Origins, the up to four player side scrolling platformer was the first game demoed in Ubisoft's E3 2011 Press Conference. Rayman and a blue, arm flapping monster start the demo by running through a lava level where floating, icy Tetris blocks begin falling in to  the lava and start to melt. The two have to get to the top even though the blocks are melting rapidly. The art constantly changes throughout the entire demo and in the next part  Rayman has to run, jump on the blue monster's hands, and dive in to the water. Underwater Rayman and Blue have to glide around to avoid jellyfish and swim away from giant sea squids. Halfway through they get to a cave that mixes elements of both swimming and platforming. The game seems very lighthearted, with both players slapping each other around and smiling as they go. The demo ends with the two in a flying level, trying to avoid enemies and kill random objects in their way.

No price point or release date was announced for the absolutely gorgeous Rayman: Origins, but as we get more details surrounding the title during our E3 2011 coverage we'll let you know!

Battlefield 3 Gameplay Demo Details -- Tanks, Airstrikes, And Gorgeous Dust

DICE debuted a new gameplay demo for Battlefield 3 during EA’s E3 2011 press conference. The demo showed off the game’s vehicular combat, a franchise staple, in the form of a spectacular tank battle.

As the demo opens, tanks storm across the deserts of Tehran. The wind whips up as the screen gets flecked with dirt and the sunlight blinds the screen. Our soldier hops below deck to man the tank’s turret and unload on enemy tanks closing in on the squad’s position. Destroyed vehicles litter the battlefield as smoke, shells, and fire fill the horizon. Switching to night vision, the tank picks off some remaining tanks hidden in the smoke and dust in the distance.

Microsoft's E3 2011 Press Conference

Shrouded in green, the Galen Center at USC was center stage for Microsoft's Xbox 360 press conference, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 kicked things off. Robert Bowling from Infinity Ward steered us through an underwater sequence which was interrupted, comically, by a "Please Reconnect Controller" message. Whoops. Sort of embarrassing in the middle of a huge press conference. In the gameplay footage, a team of special operatives had to swim through wreckage to plant a mine on a sub. It's all very James Bond-y, and your underwater movement torpedo is equipped with a motion tracker, a la Aliens. The sounds of a battle rage overhead, and you can hear sonar pings reverberating throughout. When the sub roars by above you, it's like a Star Destroyer from Star Wars passing overhead.
