E3 2021 is trucking along with its “Ubisoft Forward” press conference. Here’s how to watch.
Ubisoft Forward happens on Saturday, June 12, at 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. ET.
Ubisoft released a hype reel showing some of the games we can expect from the show as well as its (sigh) pre- and post-shows. Unsurprisingly, there are glimpses of Riders Republic, Far Cry 6, and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. We’ll also see more Rainbow Six Extraction as Ubisoft reveals details about the recently re-named game.
Ubisoft writes that the pre-show will have updates from games including Watch Dogs: Legion, For Honor, The Crew 2, Trackmania, and Brawlhalla. There’s a post-show too, which will feature a lot more Rainbow Six Siege.
For the main show, we’ll also hear about some of Ubisoft’s movies and TV, like Werewolves Within and Mythic Quest, in addition to the games above. Ubisoft already said we won’t be seeing anything about The Division 2 or Heartland at the show.
It seems doubtful we’ll hear anything about the recently delayed Skull & Bones or Beyond Good and Evil 2, which Ubisoft announced at E3 2017. But it’s always nice to dream, so I, for one, am going to get my hopes up for all kinds of wild things and then project an air of disaffected cool when we don’t see them so as to seem maturely world-weary.
