It’s nearly here, we’re just a few hours away from the highly anticipated Ubisoft Forward event, and we’re here to latest news and announcements.
We’ll be updating this page regularly, so make sure to check in for all the latest news!
Pre-show is now going ahead, with the Ubisoft News team and friends playing Trackmania live on stream.
Ubisoft has announced on Twitter Ubisoft Forward will be on Sunday, 12 July 2020.
This means the event will be live this Sunday.
Ubiforward will start at 3pm ET / 8pm BST.
Check out the timings for Ubisoft Forward for around the globe:
There will be a few components of the show:
The Ubisoft News team and friends will be playing Trackmania live on stream.
This will be followed by exclusive news, interviews and some exclusive content.
There is supposed to be some news about Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Just Dance 2020, and The Division 2.
Expect to see games, reveals, and tons of updates from Ubisoft.
This will include a deep-dive walk-through of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and a Hyper Scape show match.
Where to watch
You may also be able to watch on the streaming platform Twitch, but it’s unlikely Ubisoft will utilise this platform.
Assassin’s Creed Footage
Amongst more footage of seemingly a new Watchdogs game, we finally got our first look at female Eivor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Check out how awesome she looks!
We even saw a clip seemingly saying that we may be able to unlock Watch Dogs 2 for free on PC!
To get the game, you’ll have to log in with your Uplay account anytime after Trackmania and before the end of the main show.
You’ll also get a chance to answer some questions and win some rewards for a variety of Ubisoft titles.
New Gameplay Reveal?
A new gameplay reveal of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been leaked on YouTube.
This comes a few days before the Ubiforward event, where this 30-minute gameplay video was expected to be shown off.

What we want to see
At the event, we would like to see some more gameplay for Valhalla, as well as some story details for us to dig our teeth into.
We also can’t wait to see how Ubisoft has changed the fighting mechanics in Valhalla.
It’ll be interesting to see whether they have kept the adaptive fighting of Odyssey, or will they make a more gruesome and brutal combat style?
From the trailer, we see some footage of games like HyperScape (Ubisoft’s new Battle Royale) and Watch Dogs.
These games, alongside Valhalla, will be some of Ubisoft’s largest games releasing this year.
Currently, HyperScape is very popular on Twitch due to the “Live Drops” system that is used to give out beta keys.
