Battle Tag is a laser tag-shooter hybrid game developed and published by Ubisoft. The game was revealed at E3 2010 at the Ubisoft press conference. The game was released on November 2010 in Texas and Canada.


Battle Tag shares similarities with laser tag. Players wear harnesses with sensors and shoot at other players with wired guns that are attached to their harnesses. As the game progresses, the players' scores are uploaded to their Windows-based PC which tallies the scores and declares the winner. The game contains a multiplayer leaderboard component so players can compete with others by high scores online. Battle Tag uses an Ubiconnect sensor, which allows the players to play in a range of 1,000 feet from the sensor.


Finally after months of little to no advertising (only an official site was up) on November 20, 2010 a limited test release of 15 Toys R US stores in Texas and all Zellers stores in Canada was announced. The three initial available sets are The Starter pack (US$129.99/CDN$169.99: two "sensor vests", two "t-blasters", two different "ammo packs", two "bases", the "UbiConnect" RF Rx/Tx device, install CD and manual), T-Blaster Expansion Kit (US$70: one "sensor vest", one "t-blaster") and the Med-Kit Expansion Pack (US$20: two "med-kits", two "t-bases"). The November 15, 2010 Ubisofts official US & Canada store websites opened The Starter Pack for pre-order (US$129.99/CDN$169.99) with shipment slated for November 30, 2010 "the official release date" according to pre-sale receipts.


No longer supported by Ubisoft, is a good source for new game modes and hardware mods created by the user community and is still supported to this day despite a previous incorrect wiki stating that this forum was dead.
