game news Ubisoft Forward: all the info on the 4 games Assassin’s Creed, Skull and Bones, Just Dance, Mario + The Rabbids, Ubisoft +…
Absent from conferences at the start of the summer, Ubisoft has chosen to go it alone with its own event. Perhaps you were in front of ZEvent 2022, in which case you missed out on the wealth of information shared tonight. Fortunately, we’re here to recap the biggest announcements from Ubisoft Forward.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Mirage, Red… A loaded showcase
Let’s start at the end. In fact, tonight’s Ubisoft Forward ended with a special showcase dedicated to a license celebrating its 15th anniversary this year: Assassin’s Creed. And the least we can say is that Ubisoft’s iconic franchise isn’t done talking about it in the months and even years to come. If Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is going to offer one last free extension, it is especially in Assassin’s Creed Mirage that all expectations will be focused.
Intended as a return to basics, this slightly out of the way opus will take us to Baghdad as Basim (seen in Valhalla). From wanderer to member of the brotherhood of the Hidden, we will follow his progress through an adventure more linear than in the last Assassin’s Creed and centered around three pillars: the stealthparkour and murder During this showcase of Assassin’s Creed, there is no game on the horizon, but there are many details that you can find in our dedicated article. You will even discover some other details provided by Stéphane Boudon, creative director of the game (Ubisoft Bordeaux). Note thatAssassin’s Creed Mirage will be available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series sometime in 2023.
But that is not all. Ubisoft even detailed the future of the license more generally. On the show, we find a fruitful partnership with Netflix, an open world mobile game, but above all two new titles to be released on the famous Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the future hub dedicated to the franchise. will first welcome red Killer Codename, a game set in the era of feudal Japan (a time especially awaited by players) and that immerses us in the skin of a shinobi.
With assassins Creed Hex, The license will then offer us a very different and darker game that a priori should take us for a walk on the side of the witches. At the moment, no exit window. We will simply have to settle for short teasers before knowing more about these two projects.
Skull and Bones, Mario + The Rabbids Sparks of Hope… The rumors were true
In addition to Assassin’s Creed, we knew that Ubisoft would tell us a bit more about two games coming this year: Skull and Bones and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. And it was the second that appeared first. Of course we were entitled to a little more gameplay, but above all to a better vision of the future of the game. Scheduled for October 20, the title aims to last over time. In fact, it will offer an Season Pass with no less than three DLC planned at the moment. And the last one will welcome a distinguished guest as Rayman will become a playable character thanks to him.
As for Skull and Bones, we were also able to enjoy new gameplay. The latter has allowed us to know more about the pirates’ lair, this specific place for each player that allows you to launch missions or improve your ship. But what should be remembered from this moment dedicated to the game of piracy is above all this very good news: the title will be cross-play. Therefore, players on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One will be able to set off together to ride the waves. And for that, see you on November 8.
Just Dance, Netflix, Trackmania… Surprises
The Ubisoft Forward lasted about an hour and a half. You can imagine that with such a long conference, we also had the right to surprise announcements, although some were expected. This is particularly the case for Just Dance 2023 Edition, the next license fee. In the program, of course, there are new songs, but above all a new multiplayer mode to connect players from all over the world. Note that this play is scheduled for November 22 on Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series (later on Google Stadia). We also had news of Trackmania coming to consoles (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, and Xbox One) in early 2023.
The free-to-play Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland also took the opportunity tonight to show itself in images. Enough to delight fans of the license who will be able to discover the small town of Silver Creek for free. There’s no release date, but note that you can already sign up for testing phases if you wish. Just as it will be possible to have access to a closed beta starting in the fall for Resurgence, a new The Division title for mobile this time.
And mobile gaming will be on Ubisoft’s side in the coming months and years. If we mention Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade above, know that Rainbow Six Siege will soon offer a mobile version. Again, no release date, but a closed beta in the fall. And then it’s important to talk about the great alliance with Netflix that will give life to three exclusive mobile games for the platform (an Assassin’s Creed game, Might Quest 2 and Unknown Soldiers 2) but also to series, including a live action set in the AC universe.
The Ubisoft Forward has also reserved a whole service section for us with the Ubisoft + that seems to want to enter the big leagues. Wide catalog, games available Day One and free month, Ubisoft gives everything to compete with Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus. During the pre-show, note that Ubisoft unveiled two indie games that should also join the catalog upon release, namely Second Stone and Two Falls.
This is what should be remembered about this Ubisoft Forward. If you want to see all the announcements in detail, feel free to take a look at our Live Feed event.
