With another big gaming event now finished it’s reasonable to say that this whole expo cancelling situation hasn’t really affected the gaming industry that much which is quite alright with me! It’s nice to see a medium that takes a digital presentation as the primary form of communication with it’s community without any problem, maybe this will be the step to make all these reveal streams digital.
Anyway, enough of that, time to talk about the Ubisoft Forward stream reveals! Big thing to note however, Ubisoft didn’t address the accusations of workplace harassment and toxic workplace culture during this event so take that for what you will.
First off was the worst kept secret of the week, Far Cry 6, which will take place on the tropical island of Yara and will feature the famous actor, Giancarlo Esposito, as the main villain which is sure to make Breaking Bad fans happy. The game is set to be released on February 18th 2021 so if you’re a fan of the series then prepare yourself. Next off we finally got some proper gameplay of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla which looks fairly similar to the more RPG centric previous couple of entries in the series so it will most likely be a big hit or miss with the fans.
We also got a new trailer for Ubisoft’s entry into the Battle Royale genre, Hyper Scape, which looks to be a fast paced and uniquely first person game for this type of multiplayer arena so that should maybe help it stand out. They also revealed that the beta for the game is available now so you can jump in and check it out if you’re interested in these type of games. Finally we got some more gameplay for Watch Dogs: Legion and a release date of October 29th so if you like that game series you will be happy to know the game is not too far away now.
There were a few other announcements too so feel free to check out the stream yourself as it’s archived on Youtube. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
