Ubisoft conducted its own digital event on Sunday – Ubisoft Forward. It is an online interpretation of the habitual press conference that was a part of the E3 show. But 2020 gave us an unpredictable plot twist, and E3 has been forced to cancel the event due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Ubisoft directed the show to unveil more details about the upcoming titles: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, recently leaked and already announced Far Cry 6, and battle royal shooter Hyper Scape. And there will be even more announcements closer to the second Ubisoft Forward event later this year.

Unfortunately, some recent circumstances make me feel that Ubisoft is a clown down in the dumps. According to several reports posted on The Verge, Ubisoft feels a destabilization of the inner atmosphere in the company. Multiple allegations of misconduct levied against Ubisoft employees and yesterday three prominent executives left Ubisoft. 

Far Cry 6

It is the official cinematic trailer of the previously teased Far Cry 6. Ubisoft pleased both Far Cry and Breaking Bad fans. In the freshly baked Far Cry 6 you will be fighting against the dictatorship on the tropical island of Yara. The dictator is Anton played by Giancarlo Esposito in person, whom you might know as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad. 

Far Cry will be available on February 18th, 2021. PS4 users who buy the game will receive a PS5 copy for free. The game will be also available for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

We should note that Ubisoft has revealed an impressive piece of gameplay during the event, where you can see the mechanics of fighting scenes and new challenges where you should think outside the box. Developers also added that they have stepped away from a usual side quests, concentrating more on the plot arcs. 

The game will be available on the 17th of November for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia. PS4 owners will get PS5 copy for free.

Hyper Scape 

According to the cinematic trailer, Hyper Scape is a game interpretation of the book “Ready Player One”. The world where people live looks like a mess and all citizens are seeking where to hide from it. The online dimension has become a way out or up for them. 

If you are a PC user you can join an open beta, here is a link.

Watch Dogs Legion

Fans of the Watch Dogs series will be able to enjoy Watch Dogs Legion on October 29th this year. The game will be available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia owners. The game is also coming for the next-gen consoles. 

This game will be unlike others in Watch Dogs series. The events will happen in London where both criminal and government syndicates are trying to take the city under the control. You will be able to play almost for any NPC in the game. Each of them will have unique abilities, and your turn is to decide correctly which NPC suits to cover up a mission.
