Last night we got the latest Ubisoft Forward show and what they are releasing this Holiday 2020 and beyond! We also got a not so surprise announcement in the form of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time [Remake]. We have waited what feels like an eternity for the Prince to make a comeback and thankfully we get to see him in all his glory in January 2021. As with every reveal from Ubisoft, I was hoping that we would get a reveal or announcement or something about Splinter Cell, but sadly not this time. So, what did the teams over at Ubisoft show us in their latest Ubisoft Forward show then? Well there was quite a bit that they showed us, but I picked out my favourites from the show. If you read on below and see what games were my favourites and click HERE to see the full show and see what we have to look forward to.

Roller Champions™ is a free-to-play, skill-based, team PvP sports game – the next “must-play” competitive online experience. Welcome to 2029. Roller Champions arenas are built all over the world and fans rush to the stands to admire their modern-day heroes, the Roller Champions.

As a Roller Champion, you compete in a team of three against three. The rules are simple: take the ball, make a lap while maintaining team-possession, and score. You can go for more points by completing additional laps before attempting a goal. After each game, you gain fans, unlock sponsors, customize your character, and ultimately unlock impressive fan celebrations.
The Division 2: The Summit
The Summit, a new game mode featuring a 100-story building where each floor is sure to challenge your expertise and resolve as an agent of The Division. The Summit intends to bring a highly replayable experience to the endgame, approachable to all players ranging from our most hardened agents to our newest recruits. Want to take on the challenge of clearing the Heroic difficulty segment of the building or simply run the lower floors for an effective way of farming new gear? The Summit has you covered.
Each floor presents a variety of challenges, from specific objectives to a range of enemy forces that stop at nothing to deter your progress. As you continue to push through the floors in your attempt at reaching the peak, your opponents become more ruthless. As you ascend, the floors are randomly selected from a series of predefined designs with randomized AI spawns. In addition, certain floors have directives added to them, increasing the difficulty and forcing you to adjust your tactics against your opponents; ensuring you are always kept on your toes.
So, what was your favourite game that was shown at Ubisoft Forward and were you hoping for some Sam Fisher goodness to appear (other than in Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six)?
