Absent from the early summer conferences, Ubisoft has chosen to go alone with its own event. Maybe you were ahead of the ZEvent 2022, in which case you missed the many information shared this evening. Luckily, we’re here to recap Ubisoft Forward’s biggest announcements.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Mirage, Red … A loaded showcase

Let’s start from the end. Tonight’s Ubisoft Forward ended with a special showcase dedicated to a license that this year celebrates its 15th anniversary: ​​Assassin’s Creed. And the least we can say is that Ubisoft’s iconic franchise hasn’t finished talking about it in the months and even years to come. If Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will offer one last free extension, it is especially on Assassin’s Creed Mirage that all expectations will be concentrated.

Conceived as a return to origins, this somewhat separate opus will take us to Baghdad to embody Basim (seen in Valhalla). From wanderer to member of the Brotherhood of the Occult, we will follow his progress through a more linear adventure than the last Assassin’s Creed and centered on three pillars: the Invisibleparkour and murder. During this Assassin’s Creed Showcase, no gameplay on the horizon, but a lot of details where you can find our dedicated article. You will also discover other details provided by Stéphane Boudon, Creative Director of the game (Ubisoft Bordeaux). Note thatAssassin’s Creed Mirage will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series in 2023.

But that is not all. Ubisoft also detailed the future of the license in a more general way. On the program we find a profitable partnership with Netflix, an open world mobile game, but above all two new titles that will be released on the famous Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the future hub dedicated to franchising. First he will welcome Code name of the Red assassin, a game set in the times of feudal Japan (a period particularly awaited by the players) and which immerses us in the skin of a shinobi.

With Assassin’s Creed Curse, the license will therefore offer us a very different and darker game that should a priori take us for a ride on the side of the witches. No exit window for now. It will simply be necessary to settle for short teasers before learning 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 Ubisoft would tell us more about the two games coming this year: Skull and Bones and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. And it was the second that first appeared. Obviously 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 is intended to last over time. It will in fact offer an Season Pass with three DLCs scheduled for the moment. And since then the last one will welcome a distinguished guest 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 enabled us to find out more about the pirate’s lair, this specific place for each player that allows you to launch missions or upgrade his boat. 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. PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One gamers will then be able to set off to sail the waves together. And for that, see you on November 8th.


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, even if some were planned. This is particularly the case with Just Dance edition 2023, the next license installment. There are obviously new songs on the program, but above all a new multiplayer mode to connect players from all over the world. Note that this opus 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 advantage of this evening to show itself in pictures. Enough to delight licensed enthusiasts who will be able to discover the town of Silver Creek for free. No release date, but keep in mind that you can already sign up for the test phases if you feel like it. Just as it will be possible to have access to a closed beta from the fall for Resurgence, a new title from The Division for mobile devices this time.

And mobile games will be on Ubisoft’s side in the months and years to come. If we mentioned the 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 great partnership with Netflix that will give life to three exclusive mobile games of the platform (a game of Assassin’s Creed, Might Quest 2 and Unknown Soldiers 2) but also a series, including a live-action in the AC universe.

The Ubisoft Striker has also reserved us an entire service section with Ubisoft + that seems to want to enter the big leagues. Extensive catalog, games available Day One and month for free, Ubisoft gives everything to compete with Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus. During the pre-show, note that Ubisoft has unveiled two indie games that are also expected to join the catalog upon their release, namely Second Stone and Two Falls.
