In lieu of their traditional E3 showcase, Ubisoft took to the internet last night to give us a sneak peek at their upcoming games with the Ubisoft Forward livestream. The show didn’t disappoint giving us fresh glimpses at Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Far Cry 6. If you missed the show, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything revealed at Ubisoft Forward.
Watch Dogs: Legion launches this October
Kicking off the show was a new look at Watch Dogs Legion, the futuristic hack-em-up set in an alternative version of London. As well as a stunning animated trailer, we also got a hefty chunk of gameplay footage, revealing what it will be like to recruit new Dedsec members. We also got a new release date for the game – 29 October 2020.

Ubisoft’s foray into the battle royale genre Hyper Scape is shaping up to be multiplayer hit. At Ubisoft Forward we got to see a dazzling cinematic trailer, introducing the game’s stunning virtual world and the Crown Rush. The free-to-play game has now entered open beta, meaning that anyone can get in on the action.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla lands in November
Don your helmet and grab your shield because Assassin’s Creed Valhalla makes landfall on British shores on 17 November. Along with the release date, we got an extended look at Valhalla’s gameplay involving organising settlement conquests, brutal viking combat, and new stealth mechanics.
Far Cry 6 on the way in early 2021
Closing out the show was an explosive trailer for Far Cry 6, starring one of TV’s most iconic bad guys Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian).
