Ubisoft's "Ubisoft Forward" events are replacing the company's usual E3 conference. Here's what we know so far.

Ubisoft Forward took place on July 12th and was an overwhelming success.

The presentation didn't disappoint, revealing details on some of the biggest games of the year including Hyper Scape, Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 6.

However, news of a new Ubisoft Forward event has been released and it's arriving in September.

Below we'll take a look at the latest news surrounding the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event.

As well as this, there's a live blog detailing the previous Ubisoft Forward event's presentation, just in case you need a recap.

Ubisoft Forward September Livestream

You can watch the stream below!

Live Blog

That's A Wrap!

Interesting to see no Assassin's Creed, but that was a pretty good show in my book!

One More Thing... Riders Republic

I thought it was Steep 2, but it's a new IP, Riders Republic.

Players can take on different extreme sports across a variety of terrain types. 

It's billed as an "extreme sports fantasy land", and certainly looks colourful.

Looks like there's snowboarding, motocross, BMX, flight suits and plenty more. Oh, and jetpacks and dinosaur costumes.

Oh, and we're getting some in-engine footage, too.

Lots of X-Games and Red Bull, 15-year old me is very happy.

Watch Dogs Legion Soundtrack Will Feature Stormzy

The rapper will be featured in the game via mocap, too, with a new track "Rainfall" shared during the stream.

He'll have his own "Fall On My Enemies" mission in-game.

We're also shown some new playable characters, including a getaway driver, a street artist, and... uh... a beekeeper?

Some characters even have negative traits, like a hitman subject to fits of hiccups which make him ill-suited to stealth missions.

Aiden Pearce, the protagonist of the first game, is making a return, and there's post-launch content, too.

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World Is Back, Launching Holiday 2020

The tenth year anniversary of the side-scrolling brawler that's been delisted from digital stores for years, and the complete edition bundles in the DLC, too!

Rainbow Six: Siege Operation Shadow Legacy Launches Today, Coming To Next-Gen

As we reported earlier, Siege's "biggest ever" season kicked off today - so you can download it now.

I'm starting to give up hope of a Splinter Cell game, but it's so cool to be able to play as Sam Fisher in Siege at least.

Siege will offer a free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X, with 4K and 120 FPS planned.

 

Rainbow Six: Siege World Cup Takes Place In Summer 2021

Ubi's tactical shooter megahit is getting its first-ever country-based competition.

I can't wait to see the best teams in the world duke it out, so I can copy their strategies and be gunned down within seconds of starting a level, as is often the case.

Hyper Scape Turbo Mode

In case you'd forgotten, Ubisoft's battle royale is actually really quite good - I said so myself

It's out now on consoles and PC for free, and a new Turbo Mode will add faster health regen and max level loot only.

Prince of Persia: Sand of Time Remake Launches January 21, 2020

Man, this would've been a huge announcement if it hadn't leaked.

Here's everything we know about the Sands of Time Remake.

Yuri Lowenthal, the Prince's original voice actor is back (you may remember him as Peter Parker from Marvel's Spider-Man!).

It's coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC - no next-gen version mentioned.

Phil Harrison From Stadia

Free playable demo on Stadia before launch, not available on other platforms.

Man, remember Stadia? No, me neither.

Immortals: Fenyx Rising Launches December 3, 2020

Previously known as Gods and Monsters, the game looks much less like Breath of the Wild and offers what looks like a much more lighthearted tone, as our redhead heroine, Fenix, battles against legendary monsters from Greek mythology.

Oh, and she has wings, too.

It's a third-person action-adventure, where you'll work with Hermes to save the Gods from the Titans.

Fenix is customisable, and can be male or female, and earn new weapons and gear.

Welcome!

How goes it, folks? Are we ready for some more Ubisoft announcements?

Admittedly we've seen some hefty leaks, but at this point, it wouldn't be an Ubi show without them.

Here we go!

When is Ubisoft Forward?

The second Ubisoft Forward event is set to take place on the 10th September 2020.

Just after finishing the recent 'Ubisoft Forward Event', Ubisoft revealed a similar conference will be taking place later this year.

Frédérick Duguet, Ubisoft's Chief Financial Officer, revealed the event will be taking place in September.

What Is In Ubisoft Forward?

Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot confirmed this event will include gaming news and updates.

The conference will be 2 hours long and feature in-game rewards.

This event will likely feature a lot more gameplay elements for titles like Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Watch Dogs: Legion and Far Cry 6.

It's been confirmed that Ubisoft will re-reveal Gods & Monsters.

Recent rumours also suggest that a Prince of Persia remake is on the cards!

How Can You Watch Ubisoft Forward?

The stream will once again be viewable on Ubisoft's YouTube channel.

What Was Revealed In Ubisoft Forward July?

Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 featured a cool cinematic showing off the game's cast, now into a look at Esposito's dictator character.

Far Cry's villains have long been a key part of the franchise, at least since the third game. Here's hoping El Presidente is a little more memorable than Far Cry 5's Joseph Seed.

The game launches on February 18, 2021.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Ubisoft is talked up the game's authenticity and revamped combat ahead of a gameplay reveal.

Players will be able to raid shoreside settlements, even setting fire to buildings with arrows. 

The "largest variety of enemies" awaits, with some teaming up and others using environmental attacks. Luckily, players will have a Viking harpoon and throwing axes. Eivor can dual-wield any weapon, even shields in Valhalla.

Stealth gameplay is back, but you'll also be able to take part in assaults to storm forts. There are also some supernatural elements making a return, based on both Norse mythology and Pagan stories.

The game launches on November 17.

Hyper Scape

The Open Beta launched during the conference with a new weapon, new hack and a new free battle pass are included.

Since then the game has gone on into full release on PC and consoles with Season 1.

We can expect a preview of what's to come in Season 2.

Rainbow Six: Siege

Over 60 million players have jumped in, and Ubi claims "it's just getting started".

We can expect some more information regarding Operation Shadow Legacy, which shadow-dropped today!

Might and Magic: Era of Chaos and Tom Clancy's Elite Squad

Nifty trailers for two Ubisoft mobile games. Elite Squad is coming soon and might be the only time we play as Sam Fisher anytime soon.

Brawlhalla

Ubisoft's 2D brawler is coming to iOS and Android, with customisable control schemes and cross-play "with everyone".

It comes to mobile on August 6th.

Watch Dogs Legion

Showing off a rather unsettling look at near-future London with an action-packed short film from Alberto Mielgo.

Players will be able to recruit NPCs to build their resistance team to fight back against PMC Albion, a company tasked with locking down the city. There's also a dodgy-sounding mob boss called Mary Kelly.

Players can hack "pretty much anything", just like in the previous games, and characters have different weapons. The construction worker shown is able to shoot his nailgun, and call a cargo drone. Meanwhile, the drone expert is able to cause all sorts of remote-controlled chaos.

You can also recruit Albion agents themselves.

In another mission, Mickey the football hooligan drinks himself into a blackout, before things switch to the John Wick style hitman, complete with guns and lots of rolling around.

The Xbox boss confirms that Watch Dogs: Legion will support Smart Delivery, with the Series X offering ray-tracing.

The game launches on October 29, 2020.
