Activision announced their E3 2013 booth line-up ‘ushering in the next-generation of gaming.’
E3 takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 11 — 13, 2013 with Activision’s blockbuster lineup that will be on display at booth #647 in the South Hall, it includes Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny and Skylanders SWAP Force.
“This is obviously a big year — not just for Activision, but for the entire industry,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “There’s a console transition coming and naturally, everyone wants to see what new possibilities that will unleash in the games.
We remain laser focused on delivering the things we know our gamers care about most: great gameplay, immersive worlds, and cool innovations. And that’s what our amazing lineup at E3 this year will deliver.”
“Skylanders SWAP Force continues to build upon the success of the award-winning franchise’s signature gameplay and collectible toy experience with the introduction of an innovative feature — dynamic swapability.
Kids and gamers will have unprecedented levels of choice in how they explore Skylands and battle Kaos by swapping the top and bottom halves of the toys to transform 16 SWAP Force characters into more than 250 unique combinations.
Set in a richly detailed world of next generation visual fidelity, Skylanders SWAP Force takes kids on an all-new adventure with 32 never-before-seen heroic characters that each offer unique powers and personalities.
The game also features new abilities — such as flying, climbing, and teleporting — which can be used in special areas of Skylands.
Additionally, fans can play with their entire collection of 100+, forward-compatible toys from both Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants.
Suggested retail pricing: starter pack, $74.99; individual action figures, $9.99 for core characters, $14.99 for new SWAP Force characters. (Developed by Vicarious Visions for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Wii U; Wii version is in development by Beenox; the portable Nintendo 3DS version is in development by n-Space.)

Fans can pre-order Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Packs worldwide beginning on June 7; all games pre-ordered at participating retailers worldwide also will come with a free Skylanders toy.”
