SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is set to kick-off this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 Expo) with a blockbuster lineup featuring the #1 and #3 videogame franchises of 2013 in the U.S., including toys and accessories, according to the NPD Group1, and what could be the biggest new videogame IP of the year. Starting Tuesday, June 10, at the LA Convention Center, the company will debut a new era for the Call of Duty® franchise with Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare, while showcasing the newest innovative title from the popular Skylanders® brand with Skylanders Trap Team™, and the highly anticipated Destiny®. both Skylanders and Destiny will be playable on the show floor.

Our biggest innovation since we invented the Toys-to-Life category with Skylanders Trap Team. And the result of over four years of passion, partnership and investment to bring Bungie’s vision for Destiny to life. I think this is the best slate in Activision’s history and I can’t wait for gamers to get a closer look.” Activision’s E3 Slate Includes: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare delivers gamers an immersive and compelling narrative, jaw-dropping visuals and, for the first time in Call of Duty, exoskeleton gameplay that will redefine how people play the game. Players become the advanced soldier enabled with the power of the exoskeleton, an advanced arsenal of never-before-seen weaponry, new abilities and new gameplay mechanics. The first Call of Duty to benefit from a three-year development cycle, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is built specifically for the next generation consoles. The game takes place in a future setting that immerses players into an emotional journey with a new cast of characters poised to set a new bar for the franchise. The title is scheduled for release on November 4 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC; not yet rated by the ESRB.

Hey Addicts!

but as soon as I posted the article I check my email and see this…

 

Skylanders Trap Team

SKYLANDERS® FANS CAN NOW PRE-ORDER A TRAP MASTER TOY FOR
SKYLANDERS TRAP TEAM TM

 

Limited Supply of Gearshift is Available

 

Fans who Pre-order the Toy will Receive Gearshift When Skylanders Trap TeamTMLaunches October 5 — Months in Advance of Public Release 

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif.  – June 5, 2014  Skylanders Trap TeamTM will get a heavy dose of girl power when Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) brings Gearshift to Portal Masters via a special pre-order program starting today. Gearshift is the latest character to be unveiled in the Skylanders Trap Team lineup and will be offered toSkylanders fans for pre-order at all major North American retailers while supplies last. This marks the first time fans will be able to get their hands on the Tech element character, months in advance of her official arrival at retail in 2015.  Only a limited supply of Gearshift will be available for the October 5, 2014 launch ofSkylanders Trap Team in North America, so fans are encouraged to pre-order her today to guarantee they can get this highly collectible character at launch!

 

Skylanders Trap Team brings a ground-breaking innovation to the Skylandersfranchise by reversing the magic of its signature Toys-To-Life™ play pattern to let kids bring life-to-toys for the first time. In the game, Gearshift was created on the Tech island of Metallana by King Mercurus, who considered the young robot to be his own daughter.  But rather than performing royal duties, Gearshift preferred to spend her time in the oily depths of the kingdom among its workers, secretly tending to the huge subterranean machines.  When her father discovered this, he was furious – but then a squadron of Undead Stormriders suddenly attacked.  Learning that these marauders wanted to capture her father, Gearshift used her knowledge of the labyrinth below to hide him.  Seizing the emblem of her people – The Great Gear – she used it to fight the Stormriders, inspiring the workers to rise up.  Together, they drove the Stormriders out of Metallana and saved the kingdom.  For this, Gearshift was made part of the Trap Team, using her new awesome Traptanium-forged gear to help defend Skylands.

 

Skylanders Trap Team allows Portal Masters to seek out the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, capture them and pull them out of the game into their living rooms by securing them in a Trap. Fans can then use Traps to play as both heroesand villains who join the forces of good for the first time in an all-new adventure. The game will come with the Traptanium PortalTM, a new device that will enable kids to hear the villain speaking to them from inside the physical Trap.

 

Kids will be able to place the Trap in a special slot on the Portal, next to their Skylanders figures, to defeat and capture villains, as well as play as villains. Players also have the option to switch between playing as a Skylander and a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay. They can even take their Traps and their Skylanders characters to their friends’ houses for fun, co-operative adventures across console game systems. Skylanders Trap Team will be available on Nintendo Wii™, Wii U™, 3DS™, PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4computer entertainment system as well as the Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

 

Additionally, Skylanders fans attending E3 2014 will get an exclusive first glimpse of this new hero at the Activision booth, which is located in South Hall #1647.

 

I’m so excited for E3 I wish I could be there so much is going to be revealed and I would love to experience first hand. Gear Shift looks amazing. I wonder if there will be more female characters this go around we already have seen two thus far and they look amazing! Looking forward to see more female characters come out as the series continues to get larger.

Well that’s it for now guys so until next time “Catch You On The SKYSIDE!”

 

The sky’s the limit for Activision’s ‘Skylanders Trap Team’
