25 Comments

The second Ubisoft Forward for 2020 was held on September 10 and featured some big new game announcements, including the return of some classic characters. It also included surprises, such as a new massively multiplayer online extreme sports IP. You can re-watch it here and learn all about what was shown.

Before the event took place, Ubisoft released a video statement from CEO Yves Guillemot addressing news that has come to light in recent months about sexual assault, harassment, and mistreatment among the publisher's studios. However, Ubisoft explained that this would not air during the Ubisoft Forward stream itself due to "timing constraints." Instead, it will be attached to the video-on-demand version of the stream.

Ubisoft Forward Games And Announcements

Far Cry VR

Ubisoft is releasing a location-based VR game for Far Cry, and it features the return of Vaas from the third game. It won't be available to play at home, and will instead be playable at Zero Latency locations. There are several across the United States and in other countries.

The Division 2

The Division 2 is getting a new mode called The Summit, exclusive to Warlords of New York owners. This new mode tasks players with climbing up a skyscraper for a climactic battle on the top level. It will be one of the most challenging missions in the game, but there are multiple difficulty levels to choose from. The update also includes a mission to track down a high-ranking Black Tusk official, continuing story threads from the main campaign.

The game formerly known as Gods and Monsters is now sporting a new name: Immortals: Fenyx Rising. The trailer we saw showed off a variety of monsters you'll be fighting, as well as some special powers and blades you'll be able to wield. Combat will be fast-paced and acrobatic, bearing more resemblance to Devil May Cry than Zelda. You'll also be able to fully customize your own version of Fenyx. The game is out on December 3 and we've played it--you can watch us talk about our hands-on impressions with the game.

The acclaimed action-adventure game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is being remade for modern consoles. It retains the classic rewinding mechanics and platforming of the first version, but with a modern coat of paint. The Prince of Persia series had been mostly dormant for about a decade. Footage shown from the game during the presentation is from its alpha stage. It's coming out on January 2021.

Hyper Scape

Hyper Scape is getting a new limited-time mode that puts everyone at max level for loot, gives them faster health regeneration, and faster crown victories. Turbo Mode is available starting September 15. The game is free now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Rainbow Six Siege

Alongside announcing the Rainbow Six Siege World Cup for summer 2021, Ubisoft brought Sam Fisher to the game as a permanent addition for the new season. Sam's abilities allow him to quickly strike from the shadows, and he has access to some of the same gear that he does in the Splinter Cell games. The game supports 4K and 120 frames per second on Xbox Series X and PS5.

Watch Dogs Legion is out next month, and Ubisoft revealed that the artist Stormzy will be participating as a playable character in the game. The game's themes of speaking truth to power fit with his songwriting and ethos, as well as the London setting. He will have his own "Fall On My Enemies" mission in the game, as well. Aiden Pearce from the original game will also be fully playable as part of the season pass, and there will be a standalone DLC focused on him.
