RakitAplikasi.com/en - Ubisoft, like many other video game companies, was unable to hold a personal press conference at E3 in June because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, he hosted a digital event on Sunday called "Ubisoft Forward," revealing more about the biggest upcoming game. That includes Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, royale shooters that have just been announced, Hyper Scape, Far Cry 6, and more. The company said it also plans to hold another Ubisoft Forward showcase later this year.
Ubisoft Forward came at a difficult time for the company: The pervasive toxic culture report at Ubisoft was recently revealed amid various allegations of violations committed against Ubisoft employees. Just yesterday, three prominent executives left Ubisoft, bringing the total to four departures (and one additional suspension) since the allegations were announced.
WE WANTED TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE ISSUES WE’RE CURRENTLY DEALING WITH WON’T BE ADDRESSED DIRECTLY IN THE SHOW.
In a tweet posted just hours before the event began, Ubisoft acknowledged the challenges facing the company but said that it would not discuss them during the digital event. "Because all the content has been recorded before, we want to recognize that the problems we are working on will not be addressed directly in the show," Ubisoft said. CEO Yves Guillemot has promised major changes in a letter sent to employees on July 2, including appointing the head of workplace culture and creating a position for head of diversity.
Here’s our roundup of the biggest announcements from the show.
FAR CRY 6 LAUNCHES NEXT YEAR, AND ITS VILLAIN COULD LOOK FAMILIAR TO BREAKING BAD FANS
After a tease on Friday, Ubisoft officially announced Far Cry 6, the next game in the hugely popular series. Far Cry 6 takes place on the tropical island of Yara, and the role of the villain will be played by Giancarlo Esposito, who you might know as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. The series is known for focusing on its villains rather than protagonists, but Esposito is the first actor widely known for playing a strong villain to take on the video game role.
Ubisoft says Far Cry 6 will be available on February 18th, 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service.
ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA WILL BE AVAILABLE ON NOVEMBER 17TH
Ubisoft announced that its Norse-inspired Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which it first showed off in April, will launch on November 17th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia. The company also shared a new gameplay trailer for the Viking-themed game, which you can watch above. My colleague Chaim Gartenberg recently got to spend three hours with the title, and he says it should feel very familiar to fans of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins.
At the end of today’s trailer, Ubisoft noted that the game is “coming soon” to next-gen consoles.
HYPER SCAPE ENTERS OPEN BETA STARTING TODAY
Ubisoft announced that its upcoming battle royale shooter Hyper Scape will enter open beta starting today. Ubisoft also shared a trailer for the beta and a new cinematic story trailer, which you can watch above.
WATCH DOGS LEGION IS AVAILABLE ON OCTOBER 29TH
Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs Legion will launch on October 29th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia, and shared some footage from the game in a new gameplay trailer. The game takes place in London, and the big change from previous Watch Dogs titles is that you can recruit any NPC in the game as a playable character. My colleague Chaim also got to spend three hours with Watch Dogs Legion recently, and he said that despite the huge number of NPCs you can play as many of them feel the same.
Similarly to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft said the game is “coming soon” to next-gen consoles.
