Ubisoft held their 2022 Ubisoft Forward event early Sunday morning, with a big part of the event focusing on the future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
We also got fresh looks at several upcoming games in The Division franchise, Skull & Bones, a new trailer for Apple TV+’s Mythic Quest and more.
Here are all the details and trailers for Ubisoft Forward 2022.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope
A deep dive into a battle on a train against an angered Wiggler showed off the new combat and how the Sparks work to give our heroes different abilities they can take into action.
It was also revealed that Rayman would be joining the game in the third DLC as part of the upcoming year’s post-release plans.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is releasing on October 20th.
Skull & Bones
The latest trailer for Skull & Bones explored the weapons and ways you can deck out your ship before heading into battles on the seas and also revealed that the game will have crossplay at launch.
An update is adding BMX, a new park, sponsors and more for players to enjoy in Season 4 on September 14th.
The Division 2
An update is adding more PvE and PVP content in an update coming soon, which the team plans to announce sometime soon. Year 5 of The Division 2 has also been announced, so plenty of more content will come to keep fans playing into the following year.
The Division: Heartland
This free-to-play standalone adventure is a survival game where you team-up, or play alone as a Division agent to protect a city against enemies and infection.
The Division: Resurgence
A closed beta is coming soon for this mobile spin-off that’ll have all The Division gameplay you’re used to playing, including The Dark Zone.
You can register for the closed beta here.
Rainbow Six Mobile
After a successful round of closed Alpha tests, there’s an upcoming closed Beta, but it’s only for Android users right now and not in Australia. However, this new Beta will give you a Battle Pass to playthrough and the additions of voice chat and play in three iconic Rainbow Six maps.
Ubisoft announced a partnership with Netflix to bring three exclusive games to Netflix over the next year. Valiant Hearts 2, from the original creator and coming in January, is the next chapter of Mighty Quest and an Assassin’s Creed game, as well as the upcoming live-action series coming to Netflix.
Mythic Quest – Season 3
A trailer for the third season of Mythic Quest gave you more than one reason why you should be watching this show on Apple TV+.
Trackmania is coming to consoles and the cloud in 2023; it’ll remain free-to-play and include crossplay and cross-progression.
A new trailer showcased Rocksmith+ and how you can really learn guitar through this game.
Just Dance 2023
You can now dance with up to six others online, and there’s a story mode of sorts among the characters of the game.
Assassin’s Creed Showcase
The Ubisoft Forward then switched gears into a showcase directed entirely to the Assassin’s Creed franchise for its 15th anniversary.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage
The first trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage looked very much like a game going back to the roots of the series franchise. There are a lot of stealth takedowns and smoke bombs in use.
Set twenty years before Valhalla, we’ll see Basim grow on the streets of Baghdad to become a skilled assassin. Rosham is the other key character in the trailer and is Basim’s mentor in the game; Shohreh Aghdashloo voices the character. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is, of course, available for pre-order now, but it’s not releasing until sometime in 2023.
Beyond The Creed
Out now is a documentary about the series’ history from the original game all the way to the more recent open-world entries. You can watch it for free on the Ubisoft Youtube channel as seen above.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
If you thought the extra content for Assasin’s Creed Valhalla was over, you were very wrong. “The Last Chapter” is releasing in just a few months, and it’ll focus on wrapping up a few loose ends from storylines in the game. What’s best is that this is a free update.
Assassin’s Creed (Codename: Jade)
The first ever open-world Assasin’s Creed game for mobile will let you explore Chine and create your own character for the game. This isn’t the Netflix game I mentioned earlier; that’s a different mobile game.
15th Anniversary Gear
There’s a bunch of 15th Anniversary stuff available on the Ubisoft shop, including an artbook and statues.
Assassin’s Creed (Codename: Red)
“Codename: Red” will be set during feudal Japan and is the next flagship entry in the franchise with an open world to explore being developed by Ubisoft Quebec.
Assassin’s Creed (Codename: Hexe)
A very short teaser for this one, but it seems to be a game set during the Witch Trials.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity
We didn’t get a lot on Infinity, the service Ubisoft is working on to connect their upcoming games together in one place, but there was mention of the return of multiplayer via Infinity.
The Assassin’s Creed Showcase part of the show wrapped up with a recap of everything happening in the world of AC in the coming years.
