The event is going to be held live on Ubisoft Forward’s website at 11M PDT on September 10th. It is divided into two halves, the Pre Show and the Main Event. The developers have also promised interesting rewards throughout the event.

One can log in to their Ubisoft account while watching the stream to avail these rewards. These rewards include three XP Boost Tickets for For Honor, a Refract Baton for Ubisoft’s new battle royale Hyper Scape, a Year 5 Events Charm for Rainbow Six: Siege, and a Ubisoft Forward Mask Cosmetic for Watch Dogs Legion.


The lineup for the Pre-Show

The biggest attraction of the Pre-Show would be a Brawlhalla match between the developer Blue Mammoth and the Ubisoft news team. It would be followed by news and content from games like Roller Champions, For Honor, The Division 2, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Breakpoint.

While Ubisoft has hinted on what fans can expect, they have chosen to remain silent about the specific events.

Expectations from the Main Event

Ubisoft in their blog, highlighted that fans can expect news on their major titles like Watch Dogs: Legion, Hyper Scape, and Rainbow Six Siege. They also announced that they have big news on the “much-anticipated update on our new IP, Immortals Fenyx Rising, formerly known as Gods & Monsters“.

They ended with, “If you still can’t get enough, stick around after the main show to see deep dives into two unreleased titles, exclusive to this edition of Ubisoft Forward.”

The more Ubisoft tries to remain ambiguous, the more fans speculate. They have already started expecting big news about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. They are also excited about a Prince of Persia revisit.

The Ubisoft subreddit is full of requests to release a Rainbow Six Siege Quarantine edition. It would certainly be befitting with the current global conditions. Fans would love to play the Quarantine edition while staying at home.
