Today's Ubisoft Forward Event Here: Biggest Games And Announcements
The September edition of Ubisoft Forward will stream live today, bringing with it new details on some key upcoming games Ubisoft is working on for 2020 and beyond. The star of the Ubisoft Forward event looks to be Immortals: Fenyx Rising, the rebranded and apparently heavily revised project formerly called Gods & Monsters. But the studio has promised much more to come in this presentation, along with a few surprises in store. Here’s how to watch it.

The reveal event will be streamed on Ubisoft’s YouTube site, and GameSpot will be streaming it through our own channel as well. You can note the time and come back right here to watch it live. You can also register on the Ubisoft site to get rewards in games like Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbow Six Siege for Free.
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.
Immortals: Fenyx Rising
Now sporting a new name, Immortals: Fenyx Rising was shown first during Ubisoft Forward’s main show. 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. You’ll also be able to fully customize your own version of Fenyx. The game is out on December 3.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake
The acclaimed action-adventure game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is being remade for modern consoles. It retains the classic rewinding gameplay 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 out January 2021.
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.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is back to celebrate the game’s 10-year anniversary. After previously being delisted from stores, you’ll be able to fight the Evil Exes all over again for new platforms. Rock out on bass solos and battle hordes of baddies this holiday season.
Watch Dogs Legion
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.
The last surprise-announcement for the show was Riders Republic, an extreme sports game. Showcased with a very short trailer, the game is developed by Steep studio Ubisoft Annecy and it is an MMO. You’ll be able to do everything from mountain biking to skiing, and you’ll be on a variety of terrain including mountains, snow, and sand. It will be available on current-gen and next-gen platforms on February 25, 2021.
GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
