Ubisoft Entertainment Corporation (Ubisoft), the French-based AAA video game developer, filed a set of U.S. trademark applications earlier this month for some upcoming titles. Today, we’re going to take a closer look as to what these trademarks are, and what they are for.
The first trademark application is for AGOS A GAME OF SPACE (see U.S. Serial No. 90169767). The application designates international class 009, and claims the following list of goods and services:
IC 009: Downloadable virtual reality game software; downloadable augmented reality game software; downloadable virtual escape game software; Game software and electronic game programs, namely, software games recorded on CD-ROM and digital video discs for computers; Software games recorded on CD-ROMs, digital video discs, and cartridges for console and individual portable gaming systems; Recorded and downloadable computer game software for personal computers and home video game consoles; Software games that are downloadable from a remote computer site; Downloadable and recorded electronic game software for mobile phones, tablets, other electronic mobile devices, and handheld computers; Downloadable electronic publications in the nature of series of fiction e-books, comic strips featuring works of fiction and e-books in the field of video games; Audio and visual recordings of television programs featuring drama, comedy, and fiction; Audio and video recordings featuring live-action entertainment; Audio and visual recordings featuring live-action entertainment; Pre-recorded DVDs, digital versatile discs and digital video discs featuring live-action entertainment; Digital media, namely, downloadable audio files of television programs featuring drama, comedy, and fiction; Downloadable files containing images relating to television programs and music; Downloadable television programs featuring drama, comedy, and fiction, provided via a global computer network or video-on-demand service
Agos is a new game that Ubisoft announced on its Ubisoft Forward showcase on September 10, 2020. The game (unsurprisingly, given its name) takes place in space, where players take control of Earth’s last world-ship AI and explore several star systems, along with the remnants of the Earth’s dwindling population, in order to find a new habitable planet that can sustain human life. Agos is a VR game that releases for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index on October 28.
The next trademark application is for RIDERS REPUBLIC, and Ubisoft has seven U.S. trademark applications for this mark. The applications were filed claiming international classes 009, 014, 016, 018, 025, 028, and 041, and list a wide variety of goods and services, including: jewelry; dog tags (for human wear); bags and accessories; clothing and lingerie; toys and playing cards; journals, comic books, and fiction books; pens, highlighters, notebooks; live entertainment, TV programs, and video-on-demand; video, mobile, and AR games; and even “amusement park and theme park services”.
Rider’s Republic is described by Ubisoft as a “massive multiplayer” sports game where you can compete individually against 50 other players (or 20 depending on the platform you’re playing the game on), or in teams, and even features a solo campaign. Rider’s Republic will release on February 25th, 2021 for the PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and UPLAY+.
