Ubisoft Forward is the first-ever digital showcase from the French publisher in which Ubisoft made several major announcements like the most awaited Far Cry 6 starring Breaking Bad’s famous star Giancarlo Esposito (Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad), Fan Favourite Watch Dogs legion, and my personal favorite franchise of Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. There were some technical glitches because they announced watch dogs for free that caused some crashes in Ubisoft’s server so many people are unable to claim Watch Dogs. To compensate that Ubisoft is giving watch dogs 2 for free ‘not only for the show attendees’ but for EVERYONE.
I love Ubisoft for this because watch dogs 1 was like a rip-off of GTA with some hacking elements. Driving and gameplay were not that smooth but still, the game is playable. Ubisoft upped their game in Watch dogs 2 which is an absolute master class and I’ll review it here for sure so you can know is it still playable or not. Make sure to claim watch dogs 2. To claim that you need an Uplay account which is free to create and then head to this link.
There were many releases that fans are excited with so let’s start.
Hyper Scape was announced recently by Ubisoft. Hyper Scape is an upcoming first-person battle royale developed by Ubisoft’s Montreal studio. According to some this game is like a competitor to Epic Game’s Fortnite. There are four modes in this that are 3v3 “Crown Rush Squad”, 100-player free-for-all battle royale “Crown Rush Solo”, and limited modes “Hack Runner Squad” and “Turbo Mode Squad”. Ubisoft’s new battle royal game’s open beta is now available so you can try it beforehand. They also announced a brand new level 30 battle pass. Generally, in beta releases, you can’t keep the progress in the final release but that’s not the case here Ubisoft announced that your beta progress will be carried over in official release.
In my opinion, it’s a very good move so players will not lose their morale. I haven’t tried the open beta yet because now I don’t have any wifi access but when I play I’ll definitely share my opinion on this. I highly recommend you to start playing the open beta and get a head start of others to dominate the battlefield.
Ubisoft announced Season 3 for Just Dance which brings 3 new beautiful songs in the game, 3 returning songs, and the brand new playlist. There’s also a tournament mode coming in Just Dance. The new season virtual paradise will release on 23rd July.
Ubisoft’s ‘fake’ game that they created just for Apple Tv+ show Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet. The fake game gave them an original idea and now they’re working on releasing the in-game universe of Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet. Apple Tv+ is not that popular as Netflix and Disney + but if the show gets much attention the devs can release the game for the public as well.
Ubisoft revealed a massive surprise for the fans of Trials Rising. They are including the fan-favorite Giga track which is an enormous track the biggest that was ever put into any game to test your skills and let you dominate your opponents in multiplayer is releasing FREE on July 16th.
Ubisoft’s online-only action-packed motorsports open-world playground has recently released ‘The Summer in Hollywood’ update and it will include the Neon Battle and The beach for the next few weeks, Some modded events will be live at some point in august. Hollywood event will include legendary 80’s cars like the DeLorean and legendary Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 etc.
One of the most disappointing game Ghost reckon Breakpoint finally receiving some changes after poor reviews and very bad sales. AI teammates will be coming from 15th July. They are fully customizable, including physical features, gear, weapons, and costumes. They will follow your lead if you go stealthily, and there are four orders you can give. The customization option looks fantastic but who knows it’ll make the game great. Tell me in the comments what you think that this update will improve the game or not.
In the pre-show, Ubisoft revealed what looks like an easter egg. The division 2 acknowledged the Rubber Ducks as they were put to remind the developers to continuously improve the game and finish something while the game is in development.
Brawlhalla:- Brawlhalla is free to play a 2D fighting game that supports 8 players local or online. It’s a very fun game to play especially with friends. The game is releasing on the 6th of August for android and ios which supports crossplay so you can play with PC and console players with your phone. It sounds very promising and I hope they balance the game so Console and Pc players don’t have an advantage over mobile players.
Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad:- Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad is a free to play action-packed military RPG game that includes all the main characters of Tom Clancy series. As a part of the gameplay, you will be making your own team including Tom Clancy characters, and face your opponents in an online 5v5 battle mode.
Watch Dogs Legion is a very ambitious game developed by Ubisoft Toronto. The main feature of the game that separates this game with its predecessors that you can play as any characters in the game. Each character has unique abilities. You can recruit anyone and play as anyone whether it can be a policeman, MI6 agent, football fan, or an old lady. You can play the game as you like and that’s the best part of it. The game was initially due in March but due to the recent Coronavirus Pandemic, it was shifted to October 29.
Odin is with us that’s why we’re getting this game and I am very happy because it’s my favorite franchise. Ubisoft unveiled Valhalla’s gameplay and graphics which is fantastic. The side quests are almost non-existent in Valhalla. The game implements brand-new mechanics and features that push the franchise into a different direction. One more thing is now you can kill enemies instantly with the hidden blade just like the older titles. It doesn’t make any sense then because that’s why we play stealth to kill enemies in one go. Generally in the black flag when there’s a choice I would love to slaughter everyone than just silently kill the enemy. Hopes are high and I’m desperate to play Valhalla. The game is releasing on November 17th.
As I mentioned in my previous post that Ubisoft might actually tease far cry 6 and thankfully they did. Far Cry series is one of my favorite franchise and I’ve played every game and DLC from Far Cry 3. Far Cry new dawn disappointed me because for me it’s more like a DLC of Far Cry 5. Ubisoft confirmed the involvement of breaking bad star Giancarlo Esposito (Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad). His acting in breaking bad was fabulous and no doubt the breaking bad fans are also excited for Far cry 6. The protagonist of the game is Dani Rojas a native and what’s special is it’s a fully voiced protagonist that interacts with other characters in 3rd person also you can see the character more often. You can choose a male or female character that suits you better. It’s set to release on February 18, 2021.
I’ve covered everything that was shown on Ubisoft Forward. Please do tell me in the comment which game are you excited about.
