Ubisoft Eurogamer Expo line-up revealed

Driver! Creed Brotherhood! Rabbids!

The Ubisoft line-up for the Eurogamer Expo 2010 is in. The golden balls this year are Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Driver: San Francisco and Raving Rabbids Travel in Time.

Those games won't be released until November; the Eurogamer Expo 2010 takes place on 1st to 3rd October.

San Francisco is the first Driver game made for PS3 and Xbox 360. Ubisoft has created a story that takes place inside hero John Tanner's comatose head, allowing for a trendy Shift mechanic he can use to possess other drivers mid-chase. This, Christian Donlan found out for Eurogamer, makes for an exciting break from the norm.

Brotherhood famously introduces multiplayer to the Assassin's Creed series, using inventive game modes to conjure a so far peerless experience. There's a new story, too, featuring returning AC2 hero Ezio who must establish a stealthy army of his own to take on the Templars. You'll be able to try both multiplayer and single-player facets at the Eurogamer Expo 2010. Whet your appetite with our hands-on impressions of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer.

Finally, Raving Rabbids Travel in Time provides a welcome respite from all that seriousness with a cast of bonkers rabbits that pillage history for comical scenarios. I'll be keeping watch on the Wii pods to see who among you can keep a straight face for the entire demo. It is a challenge; I have thrown the gauntlet down.

That's the Eurogamer Expo 2010, then, which has commandeered the gargantuan Earl's Court in London this year due to swelling popularity. Tickets are only £8 a day (concessions available), and there are three days (starting 11am, ending 7pm) available to attend. There's no excuse!
