Ubisoft is set to host Ubisoft Forward later this month, a livestream event that will offer fans a look at a range of new games the publisher has lined up for next-gen.

The stream is set to unveil more footage for anticipated titles such as Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Ubisoft’s upcoming battle royale game, Hyper Scape, will also make an appearance during the show.


There is likely to also be a number of new game announcements and surprises revealed throughout the stream, however, the developer has yet to provide any specific details.

It’s also worth mentioning that for the first time ever, the stream will be subtitled in American Sign Language.

When and where can you watch Ubisoft Forward?

  • The event will take place on July 12 at 8pm BST on Twitch and YouTube.

What can viewers expect?

Before the main show, viewers can jump into a pre-show with the Ubisoft News team as they stream the racing game Trackmania, along with providing a look at updates for past games such as Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Just Dance 2020.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be receiving an extended walkthrough of the game, as well a match of Hyper Scape playing out for players to view.

In addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Hyper Scape, and other Ubisoft games people are excited to see, there’s also optimism that Far Cry 6 will be revealed. This is by no means guaranteed to happen, but people have become optimistic following the supposed leak concerning the involvement of a Breaking Bad actor.

However, while the reveal of Far Cry 6 is purely wishful thinking as of this moment, what’s set in stone is that you can get Watch Dogs 2 for free.
