UBISOFT FORWARD: WHAT TO EXPECT
DISCLAIMER– The games mentioned below are not confirmed to be appearing at UBISOFT Forward by the publishers or developers as of the time of writing. Any games mentioned are just our best guesses that might or will appear at UBISOFT Forward.
UBISOFT recently announced UBISOFT Forward, a digital showcase with exclusive gaming news, reveals, and more. This event organized by UBISOFT is surely due to the fact that E3 got cancelled which takes place every year around 9th to 12th June but was cancelled this year due to the recent coronavirus outbreak. So UBISOFT has decided to put up an event of its very own where gamers can expect news regarding UBISOFT’s upcoming confirmed games like Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, updates on the already existing ones like Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Rainbow Six Siege e.t.c and may even reveal some new games that they usually do in a typical E3 show.
So with that being said let’s take a look at some potential news that might get revealed in this upcoming event by UBISOFT.
ALREADY CONFIRMED GAMES BY UBISOFT
1) Watch Dogs Legion
Initially, to be released on March 6th, 2020 Watch Dogs Legion was postponed indefinitely due to the backlash UBISOFT faced with ghost recon breakpoint. UBISOFT wants to make sure that another game doesn’t fall prey to poor AI, unnecessary microtransactions, and a hell lot of bugs. Hopefully, this time around we will get the perfect Watch Dogs game that everyone is eagerly waiting for.
Watch Dogs Legion is set in London and from what’s been shown in the trailer at the previous year’s E3 there is a heavy emphasis on playing as different characters with each character having their specific strengths and weakness that the player can capitalize. Not much is shown about the story though but hacking will be at the core of the game.
Let’s hope UBISOFT delivers a masterpiece with this one and hopefully, we will get a release date and even more gameplay of Watch Dogs Legion at UBISOFT forward.
2) Rainbow Six Quarantine
We were shown a teaser of Rainbow Six Quarantine last year. It seems to be a PvE co-op based shooter with characters from rainbow six siege universe. It will probably have an outbreak style of gameplay that we noticed during the operation chimera of Rainbow Six Siege. Let us hope they show us some more stuff this time around at UBISOFT Forward.
3) Beyond Good and Evil 2
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is a prequel to beyond good and evil which was released back in 2003. Fast forward to 2020 and we still don’t have a confirmed release date for this one. Hopefully, UBISOFT will give us a hint on the games’ release window this time around.
4) Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a scheduled release date of Holiday 2020. It takes us back to the era of Vikings where we play as the protagonist named Eivor. They have not shown any gameplay as of now so fans can expect some gameplay reveals at UBISOFT Forward. To know more about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla click here.
5) Skulls and Bones
First shown at E3 2017, since then UBISOFT has been pretty silent about this one. It is a pirate game with a heavy emphasis on naval combat. Everything else about this game is still a mystery. It is surely not going to release this year but at least UBISOFT can give us a teaser to reignite the hype again among the fans.
NEW GAMES TO BE SHOWN?
Since the event will act as a replacement of E3 for UBISOFT we can surely expect some new games to be shown at the event. Probably Far Cry 6, maybe a new splinter cell or maybe even an entirely new game! We think that the world which was shown in the short clip of Ubisoft Forward by Ubisoft belongs to the new Far Cry series though we are not sure about that.
So let’s see what surprises UBISOFT has in store for us on July 12th 2020 at UBISOFT Forward.
