Ubisoft had its second Forward presentation today, in which it revealed more details on upcoming games that they didn’t have time for between the news Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 6 last time. Here is the most important information you need to know.
By the way, the Ubisoft virtual conference comes into its own heavy Company time as multiple incidents of sexual misconduct, harassment and racism emerged. CEO Yves Guillemot made a statement before the show began acknowledging the issues and pledging to do better, as is the norm for these types of things. While it doesn̵
Immortals: Fenyx Rising
Probably the biggest reveal was the rebranded Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Originally a vaguely Greco-Roman game was called Gods & monstersthe game was properly revealed for the first time. It is a comedic interpretation of several Greek myths as told in the style of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
More specifically, it’s an open-world action-adventure game with a customizable player character called Fenyx. Fenyx’s story about getting traditional mythological monsters out of the way is told by Prometheus to Zeus, who insists on adding his own comment. And I wasn’t kidding about the resemblance to Breath of the Wild. My initial fear when this game was released was that it was going to be a little too much Assassin’s Creed Odysseywhich also took place in ancient Greece and involved battles with mythical beings. But as soon as you see it, you will see that BotW Inspiration. Nevertheless, every new IP in this market is welcome for me. The game starts on December 3rd.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake
A dark horse reveal was the remake of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. A creation by Ubisoft’s studios in Pune and Mumbai, a complete makeover of the original game with the same voice actor for the Prince.
I’m not sure how to find this probably unnecessary remake rather than a new one Prince of Persia Game but the graphics shared Gaming Twitter. I think they’re fine, but lack the charm of the stylized original. And I can’t disagree with anyone who directly says they look disappointing. Otherwise, everything else in the game is taken into account: parkour, time-reversal mechanics, the prince’s inexplicable British accent. While the footage shown was referred to as “alpha footage”, that was Sands of time The remake will be released on January 21, 2021.
Do you want to Steepbut I wish it were more like that tries? Ubisoft apparently intends to help fill this very specific niche Riders Republic, a new IP that includes an open world and extreme sports.
So far we can’t see all that much about the game other than the description above, but it does have the bizarrely fantastic neon spray paint-soaked aesthetic that Ubisoft has applied to everything Far Cry New Dawn to Guard dogs 2. There will also be 50-player PvP in the various sports. It will be released on February 25, 2021, so we’ll likely see more of it in the next few weeks.
And a few other things
Scottish pilgrim is back! The game customization of Scott pilgrim against the world was struck from digital storefronts a few years ago meaning there was no way to buy or play if you didn’t already own it. Perhaps the show’s only real surprise was that Ubisoft is finally bringing it back. The Complete Edition will be released during the holiday season.
It’s a shame we didn’t get a disclosure Rainbow Six: Quarantine, which is said to be part of this year’s bulletin board. But maybe Ubisoft felt that the release of a game with that title was rather insensitive in a year like this. In other Rainbow Six News, Sam Fisher from Faction Fame was added as a playable character. It feels like Ubisoft is deliberately pinning fans begging for a full-fledged one Faction Game, but it’s more likely they’re not sure Sam can stand a new game of their own, and they use those breadcrumbs to gauge interest.
One particularly fun reveal was for Guard dogs: Legion. The inclusion of a Stormzy music video in the game was … okay, I guess. But the fun part was that Ubisoft triumphantly revealed that they had listened to fan demand and added a previous player character to the game as a potential recruit, and it was … Aiden Pierce, the unforgettable Milquetoast protagonist of the original Watchdog, now incredibly boring due to the color of its sequels. Almost everyone on Twitter wondered why they chose Aiden over Marcus, a much more adorable character who fits in better with the setting than Aiden. It was as if Ubisoft had opened its mouth to proudly show off its last remaining baby tooth.
I’m sorry we didn’t see Skull bones or Beyond good and evil 2but maybe that was too much to hope for.
