Ubisoft Forward 2020

On Sunday, July 12th Ubisoft came out with fewer titles but much more detail. The 50-minute presentation showed six titles, and two thank you presentations to Might and Magic and Rainbow Six Siege.

Ubisoft spent the first 15 minutes focusing on Watch Dogs: Legion with a fast-paced action-filled short film. This sets the tone for the game and some of the city scenes we will see in Watch Dogs: Legion. After the short film, Ubisoft went on to discuss the story and game-play. Watch Dogs: Legion occurs in London, where a terrorist group begins to take over the city. You must recruit people to build the Resistance and overthrow the terrorist group. In your recruiting processes, you can pick anyone in the streets of London. From construction workers, drone experts, and tactical hitmen, anyone is up for recruit. You can start recruiting your Resistance team on October 29th, 2020.

On the mobile side of things, Brawlhalla got a quick viewing as the cartoon fighting style game becomes available on IOS and Android August 6th, 2020. A new mobile game from the Tom Clancy franchise is getting a fresh look with the art style like Fortnite. Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad will launch August 27th for IOS and Android.

Another battle royal game was introduced from Ubisoft. Hyper Scape is a digital battle royal style game that takes place in 2054. This free-to-play first-person shooter is in a virtual world where players can enter a high-tech playground that allows up to 100 players to battle it out to be the last. The open beta for Hyper Scape is available on PC right now!

Ubisoft then took a deep dive into Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, where we saw game-play footage, combat, and story details. Build your own Viking tale as you take on the character of the male or female Viking raider Eivor. You will lead your crew into Norway to take over the farmlands and rule the hills. Your team will take on epic raids as any camp in the world is radiable. Anything scavenged can be taken back to your settlement, which can help build and improve your livelihood. You can customize your settlement by recruiting new members and upgrading buildings. Combat is personalized as you can duo-wield any two weapons. You can pick between axes, swords, mourning stars, shields, and more to create your type of playstyle. You can take on the open world as the Viking raider Eivor on November 17th, 2020.

Just as the show was ending, Ubisoft surprised us with an immense ending announcing the compelling trailer of Far Cry 6. The next big franchise takes us to a fictional Caribbean island called Yara, which is ruled under a dictatorship. While using a live grenade as a metaphor, we see Anton Castillo, the “El Presidente,” teaching his son Diego how the people of their country need to be handled. The preview may not have given us much information about the game, but the cinematic graphics and tension had us glued to the 4-minute trailer. Far Cry 6 drops February 18th, 2021.
