Saturday night, E3 presentations. Let’s do this!
Ubisoft Forward is tonight’s briefing; an hour-or-so of all things Ubisoft. We’re expecting this to be mainly a look at games we already know about, and DLC for existing games. But a few surprises might be nice too.
Missed the presentation? Don’t worry – we’ve rounded everything that was shown off right here, so read on and see what was announced.
- We got an in-depth look at Rainbow Six Extraction, which is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Stadia on 16th September. It looks fantastic, features some truly freaky enemies, supports cross-play on all formats and features 1-3 player co-op. Read more about it by clicking here.
- Rocksmith+ announced. A new version of Ubisoft’s guitar teaching game. It will allow for community help videos and more. More tools to help you learn than before. It’s a subscription service coming this year, and it will be available on PC, console and mobile. A huge library of songs is promised, including rock, pop, R&B and a whole lot more. Allows for more personalised learning. You can register for a closed beta right now.
- Riders Republic shown. It will have a 6v6 Trick Battle mode. Unlock content by earning stars. Varied range of sports including BMX, snowboarding and… racing jetpacks!?! Massive 64 player events. It’s launching 2nd September. Register now for upcoming betas. Read more here.
- Quality of life developments are coming to Rainbow Six Siege. Cross-play and cross progression is coming to PC and cloud-based platforms on 30th June. Cross-play coming to Xbox and PlayStation platforms in early 2022, along with cross-progression on all platforms.
- Updates are coming to Trackmania this summer: new map building items and more.
- The Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles are coming to Brawlhalla!
- Ghost Recon Breakpoint has “many surprises to come” as part of Ghost Recon’s 20th Anniversary. Hmm.
- Just Dance 2022 announced. Will feature a special version of Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels by Todrick Hall. Over 40 songs are included and it’s out 4th November.
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was up next, giving us a glimpse at what’s next for Eivor and the Raven clan. One handed swords will be coming soon, and constant updates will be coming to the game for a long time to come, including support into the game’s second year. The next DLC expansion is The Siege of Paris, “the most ambitious battle in Viking history”. Eivor will travel to Paris, gain new abilities, find new weapons and get to take part in ‘black box’ missions. It’s coming later this year. Further, a discovery tour, that will let players explore the history of the game, is coming this autumn.
- We got at look at Mythic Quest’s second season, the game dev comedy available on Apple TV+.
- A trailer was shown for the upcoming Werewolves Within film. It’s out in cinemas on June 25th, and will be available to stream on 2nd July.
- Far Cry 6 was up next. A dramatic story trailer shows a boat full of people trying to escape their country – but their escape is soon thwarted by Anton Castillo, the villain of the game. The season pass will let you play as past villains in the series – Vaas, Pagan Min and Joseph Seed. The season pass will also include Far Cry Blood Dragon.
- Mario, at a Ubisoft event? This can only mean one thing: a new Mario + Rabbids game. It’s called Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, and it’s coming 2022. Like Kingdom Battle, it’s a strategy game at its core, featuring your favourite Mario characters alongside adorable/annoying (delete as appropriate) Rabbids. It’s not just set in the Mushroom Kingdom this time – there’s a whole galaxy to save.
- Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora announced, developed using the latest version of the Snowdrop Engine. It’s coming in 2022. Read more here.
