So, Ubisoft Forward happened last night and while it was not the show I was hoping to see, we did get to see two games I was really looking forward to, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion.
What also was shown was more content for games like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Rainbow Six, with some news on a new mobile game Tom Clancy’s Elite. We also got to find out more about Ubisoft’s new Battle Royale game Hyper Scape and a reveal of Far Cry 6, which was leaked two days earlier. You can check out the videos below for more content and information.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint
AI teammates are coming to Ghost Recon Breakpoint in a July 15 update, along with improvements to Ghost War and a brand new live event, Resistance, launching on July 16. Read more.
Watch Dogs: Legion
Everyone in London’s open world is a potential recruit for your resistance group when Watch Dogs: Legion arrives on October 29. Build your own DedSec crew of up to 40 operatives at a time, and hack, sneak, fly, and fight your way to a better tomorrow. Read more.
Brawlhalla is bringing its fierce, free-to-play platform fighting action to iOS and Android devices on August 6. The mobile versions will feature cross-play with all other platforms (PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch), and will offer a special in-game reward for players who download and play soon after launch. Read more.
Might & Magic Heroes Era of Chaos
Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad
This free-to-play tactical RPG comes with a massive roster of 70 characters spanning the Tom Clancy’s universe of games, and it’s arriving August 27 on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Read more.
Rainbow Six Siege
The development team at Ubisoft Montreal put together a video message to celebrate five years since the launch of the game and to thank the community for their passion and dedication. Which it kind of makes you wonder, will they keep adding more content to the game, or will they move on and create a new Rainbow Six title.
The Hyper Scape Open Beta is live now, meaning the fast-paced sci-fi multiplayer shooter is now available for PC players around the world to play for free. The Open Beta features a new weapon, hack, game modes, and Twitch features. Read more.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches on November 17, when players can lead Viking raids, assault fortified castles, assassinate targets, build alliances, upgrade their settlement, and become a legendary Viking during England’s Dark Ages. Read more.
Level Design Director Philippe Bergeron breaks down 30 minutes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay from the Ubisoft Forward demo. Bergeron explains all the new features Valhalla brings to the series, including assaults, raids, brutal combat, and cat recruitment (yes, you read that right).
Far Cry 6
Far Cry 6 will launch on February 18, 2021, and transport players to the tropical island of Yara, where they will fight to free their homeland from the grasp of a brutal tyrant. Portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul,” “The Boys,” “The Mandalorian,”), President Antón Castillo will do anything to hold on to power as he grooms his son Diego, played by Anthony Gonzalez (“Coco”), to succeed him. Players will have to use all the weapons, vehicles, and allies at their disposal to light the fires of revolution. Read more.
I guess that we will need to wait for the next Ubisoft’s Foward to see if we will finally get a new Splinter Cell game or more information and gameplay from Beyond: Good and Evil 2. Hopefully we are not waiting too long to find out!
