Ubisoft Stomping UK Summer Festivals
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Sick and tired of the usual office grind, Ubisoft decide to mix things up this summer and head off on a tour of some festivals.
The Ubisoft Summer Festival Tour 2008 has been confirmed to attend high-profile festivals such as Hard Rock Calling (Hyde Park, 28th – 29th June) The O2 Wireless Festival (Hyde Park, 3rd – 6th July) Ripcurl Boardmasters (Newquay, 4th - 11th August) and Reading Festival (Reading, 23rd – 26th August) Visitors will be able to access a special Ubisoft trailer to play a variety of up-coming games such as Tom Clancy’s EndWar, Tom Clancy’s HAWX, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, Soulcalibur IV and Sports Party.
“We’re really looking forward to playing a part in key festivals this Summer, as it provides a fun and exciting way to get our games in front of many different audiences.” said Jacqui Lennon, the organiser of the Ubisoft Summer Festival Tour. “It also provides people of all ages and gaming abilities the chance to play Ubisoft games.”
If playing the games is not enough then Ubisoft is set to launch a host of competitions before and during each of the festivals. Beforehand, people can access the Ubisoft Summer Festival 2008 website at http://www.myspace.com/ubisoftsummertour to win tickets to each of the festivals. Visitors to the stand at each of the festivals can win exclusive merchandise and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a 42” TV, a Microsoft Xbox 360 and a Nintendo Wii.
Easy life for some eh? Anyone popping out for one of the above festivals should go check out the stands and blag themselves some goodies.
