Mass Effect will be opening up a new Theme Park ride at Great America in Santa Carla, CA. It will launch on May 18th of this month and is called Mass Effect: New Earth 4D.  

 This up close and personal experience will place you on the Normandy with Commander Shepard. A live action performer will be playing the part of captain on your voyage while interacting with the holographic screen. You, along with the other ride participants, will be seated in an 80 seat theater equipped with motion seats, wind effects, water, leg pokers, neck tinglers, and surround sound. 

“It’s very important that we create an attraction that fits seamlessly in the world of Mass Effect, while including the elements we know are critical to making a good amusement park experience. We want to ensure that dedicated fans and park-goers being introduced to the franchise alike walk away thrilled and excited.”

-- Christian Dieckmann, Corporate Vice President of Strategic Growth at Cedar Fair Entertainment

Also to come to Great America theme park rides are Rabbids and Assassin's Creed. Nintendo may also soon be in the mix of up and coming attractions. The new Mass Effect game, Andromeda, is set to release sometime next year.

Ubisoft is planning a theme park for 2020 https://www.gameskinny.com/w00v5/ubisoft-is-planning-a-theme-park-for-2020 https://www.gameskinny.com/w00v5/ubisoft-is-planning-a-theme-park-for-2020 Mon, 07 Sep 2015 17:38:41 -0400 Samantha Wright

Ubisoft's movie division is planning on opening a "next generation" theme park in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2020. The park will be a 10,000-square-meter indoor complex. The facility will showcase attractions for Rabbids, Assassin's Creed, and Just Dance.

Ubisoft is working on the theme park with RSG, a development company specializing in this effort. RSG is also responsible for Movie Animation Park Studios which opens in Malaysia next year.

Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, wrote:

"Ubisoft’s intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game."

However, Ubisoft fans already seem torn on the announcement. One Twitter user blatantly wrote "No" when replying to Ubisoft's question of "Have you ever played one of Ubisoft’s games and thought, 'This is fun and all, but I’d really like to experience it as a theme park ride?"

Another posted what can best be described as a satire of the entire idea: 

Others yet are questioning the inclusion of other big name Ubisoft games such as Far Cry, Watch Dogs, Tom Clancy, and even The Crew. How will Ubisoft incorporate them, if at all?

Though some fans do seem extremely happy with the news, generally giving Ubisoft words of praise and expressing how much they would love to visit.

Ubisoft Developing Three More Of Its Games Into Movies https://www.gameskinny.com/qnwkd/ubisoft-developing-three-more-of-its-games-into-movies https://www.gameskinny.com/qnwkd/ubisoft-developing-three-more-of-its-games-into-movies Thu, 13 Jun 2013 00:03:10 -0400 Aneudys Tejeda

Videogame adaptations to film don't always work, but maybe these movies might?

According to Variety, the film division of Ubisoft (yes, they have one) plans to  bring Watch Dogs, Far Cry and Rabbids to a theater near you. 

With Ubisoft's trio of movie propositions, the publisher aims to maintain creative control over its film projects, which means Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet will hire the writers, directors and actors, and choose the studios Ubisoft wants to work with. So if anyone is to blame for a bad Ubisoft game-inspired movie, it isn't the director. 

Not much is known about these films, except that Baronnet has said that they will feature all-new stories and not pull directly from the games.

"These are not adaptations, We will create a brand new story. Always."

Additionally it was revealed that Michael Bay will be directing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. Baronnet also said the video game company wanted Bay as director because "he is a master at action movies." 

Ubisoft Motion Pictures has already set up big-screen adaptations of Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell at New Regency Pictures, which in total amounts to 6 Ubisoft movies.
