E3 2013: MMORPG The Division Leads Ubisoft Next-Gen Charge
Ubisoft has revealed Tom Clancy's The Division for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A post-apocalyptic third-person shooter, the game doubles as an MMO RPG where teams of survivors battle it out for resources in a world wrecked by a deadly virus outbreak.

Massive Entertainment is developing the game, which will also be compatible with tablets - it was the leading title in a number of reveals which would assert Ubisoft's commitment to the upcoming next-generation consoles. As Yves Guillemot himself said on stage, he loves new consoles. Don't we all?

Highlights of these titles included Reflections' new MMO racer, The Crew, for PS4, Xbox One and PC. It allows a number of players to gather and participate in competitive and co-op races seamlessly without the need for a lobby. You can use use tablets to customise your cars for play on the big screen, but apparently this is not the main focus for the developer's intended 'second screen experience'.

Along with the official showing of the Watch_Dogs trailer which got leaked yesterday and a new CG teaser of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft formally unveiled Just Dance 2014 (but didn't mention Ghostbusters) and introduced an Xbox One 'TV experience' title called Rabbids Invasion. If you can imagine how a Sega Mega CD game might have played with Kinect, then you have an idea of how Rabbids Invasion works.

And in more awesome news, RedLynx announced two new Trials games - one for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC called Trials Fusion, and another specifically for mobile devices called Trials Frontier.
