Everything Announced at Ubisoft Forward - Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and More

Games discussed:

After a tumultuous few weeks of internal unrest, Ubisoft is hoping to turn the corner and focus on games. At Ubisoft Forward, the company brought in-depth looks at some of its biggest games. Here's everything the publisher discussed in case you missed the show.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The centerpiece of Ubisoft Forward got an extended gameplay demo both during and after the show. In it, Eivor's questing, combat, and traversal were all shown off. Perhaps most important was a release date reveal. You can find Valhalla on the now very busy November 17 alongside Cyberpunk 2077

Watch Dogs Legion 

Back from its delay, the next entry in the hacker's paradise is also coming this fall. With another huge gameplay chunk to check out, players also caught wind of the launch date: October 29. 

Far Cry 6 

It was meant to be this year's placeholder for Ubisoft's end-of-show surprise, but Far Cry 6 leaked a few days ahead of schedule. At Ubisoft Forward, we saw the same trailer that leaked, and we're still left wondering if young Diego is actually Vaas, but we expect Ubisoft doesn't want to spoil that fun.

Elite Squad 

The Tom Clancy mobile game is nearly here after a 2019 reveal. Starring some of the overarching series' famous faces, most notably Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell.

Hyper Scape 

The futuristic battle royale is now in open beta with a 30-tier battle pass available for free. The game remains a PC exclusive for now, but we'd expect it will eventually come to consoles after it's received some new content drops. While the above trailer highlights that beta, another one shined a light on the game's dystopian story universe.

Brawlhalla 

The free to play platform fighter starring many familiar faces from Ubisoft and beyond is making its way to mobile platforms at the turn of the new month. Those who pre-order can gain some incentives as seen in the new trailer celebrating the popular fighter's latest platforms. Find it on your mobile store beginning on August 6.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Announced during the pre-show, Breakpoint's next title update is the one diehard fans have been waiting for. NPC allies are coming back, filling out your squad to be a four-soldier unit like it was in Wildlands. Alongside that comes a host of new rewards to earn in the game's upcoming Resistance event. The trailer above acts as the introduction and the action begins on July 15.

Unexpectedly, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot also revealed there will be another Ubisoft Forward at a later date, with the implication being that he's not just talking about next summer. Hang in there, Splinter Cell fans. There's still hope!
