Ubisoft Titles Honored With Varied Awards At E3 2006

London - 2nd June 2006 - Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that its new franchise Assassin's Creed has won Best Action/adventure Game as part of the Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2006. The Game Critics Awards are decided by representatives from 37 leading media outlets covering the video games industry.

"Few games at this year's E3 screamed "next generation" more than Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. From the first glimpse of its big gorgeous graphics through its Prince of Persia-meets-Thief gameplay, Assassin's Creed provides an excellent taste of what the PS3 can and will deliver. Ubisoft's A-team - the Montreal Studio - is creating Assassin's Creed like the blockbuster it wants to be: an epic Crusades setting with a super-acrobatic hero in an intriguing storyline that has some surprising twists yet to be revealed," said Tom Byron, Editor in Chief, Official PlayStation Magazine.

In addition to the Game Critics Award, Assassin's Creed received numerous other honors, including Best PLAYSTATION®3 Game from 1up.com; Best Action Game for PLAYSTATION®3, Best Graphics for PLAYSTATION®3 and PLAYSTATION®3 Game of the Show as well as Overall Best Action Title from IGN; Best PLAYSTATION®3 Game from Gamespot and Best of Show from Gametrailers.com.

Ubisoft's World War II title Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway was also recognised with best First Person Shooter for Xbox® 360 and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Vegas was honored as Overall Best First Person Shooter from IGN.

Assassin's Creed is being developed by Ubisoft's world-class Montreal studio which is renowned for developing best-selling franchises such as Prince of Persia® and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell®. The Assassin's Creed franchise will combine original gameplay, top-notch graphics, and an immersive and sophisticated storyline which will deliver a new and captivating action gaming experience.
