Despite the various difficulties that Ubisoft has encountered, again this company surprises us as always
Despite the fact that COVID-19 has postponed or canceled many events in the gaming world, Ubisoft has not been much affected by this. Last night Ubisoft introduced Ubisoft Forward, an online event that you could follow on Twitch or other platforms. During this event, plans were revealed for some of the existing games, but also many long-awaited games were presented for the fans.
Although Ubisoft had made an announcement at the time when the Battle Royale genre had a huge rise that it would not participate in this competition, but today they apparently changed their minds about it. A few days ago Ubisoft introduced Hyper Scape in beta, a Battle Royale game which will be free-to-play. This game was set in the future, in 2054. During the game, players can find hacks (ability) which enables players to have endless bullets, create a shield, or be teleported.
Also, this game will offer a variety of weapons and their combinations which can be improved through hacks. Hyper Scape is already in open beta for all players anywhere in the world. There is still no date for the beta release but developers have expressed that they will be following the beta carefully and do not want to perform hasty actions.
Watch Dogs: Legion
This time Ubisoft has decided that this game will take place in London where an authoritarian regime has been established which monitors everyone at every step and every violation of the law is punished. One of the main features of this game is that you can recruit any person you see on the streets of London and play that person starting from ordinary people, people who are part of this regime, killers, spies and even the elderly.
During the cinematic trailer presented we could watch the gameplay of the game and also different ways of performing a mission through different characters using a drone expert who uses a mini robot or a simple builder who can accomplish the mission using his tools. Watch Dogs: Legion will be launched on October 29 this year.
Far Cry 6
Far Cry has always come differently and has never left us without surprises. This time the game will take place in a dictatorial state called Yara led by a cruel dictator. Always in the trailers of the Far Cry series is presented the antagonist where in this game will be the leader Anton Castillo. According to the press, Castillo is trying to restore his state to its former fame by instructing his son Diego to follow in his footsteps and putting in control anyone who does not follow his vision. In the trailer we see Castillo explaining to his son that his power and people are like a grenade letting him hold in his hands a real grenade.
During this game, players will be able to play like Dani Rojas where the player can decide if it will be female or male. Dani will be part of the revolution and he will also be accompanied by Chorizo, a wiener dog, a feature introduced at Far Cry 5. Yara will also have plenty of places to explore starting from Esperanza’s urban environment, the jungle, and up to the beaches. Far Cry 6 will be launched on February 18, 2021.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
In its 12th series, Assassins Creed Valhalla this time comes at a time when the Vikings are invading the Anglo-Saxon kingdom. This video was leaked earlier on Reddit and apparently Ubisoft has confirmed this leak. The main character of this series will be Eivor an invading Viking who is involved in the conflict between the Templar Order and the Brotherhood of Assassins. Eivor can be played as a female or as a male, depending on the player’s preference. During this series players will have the opportunity to form various alliances or conquer, go hunting or explore seas and places never explored.
Players will be able to choose different skills and during gameplay we can see a variety of different weapons which you can combine with skills. Something else that I will not miss this game will be the action with the environment. Players can participate in drinking games or various activities which are related to their cultures. During the gameplay there is also a notice which says that the game is still in progress and that it can change. Assassins Creed Valhalla will launch on November 17th.
In addition to games on PC or consoles, Ubisoft will also come on mobile and this time with the Elite Squad game. This game will be a free-to-play RPG where you will include characters from the Tom Clancy universe like Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, and The Division. Players will be divided into 5v5 teams and where they will have to use different strategies to win. This game will also include a campaign mode that will introduce a new story. Elite Squad will be released for Android and iOS on August 27th.
After the great success of this fighting game, Ubisoft has decided to expand it to other platforms. This time she will expand this game to mobile. The player will have the opportunity to change controls according to preference, making it easier to interact with the game. It will also be possible to face players from other platforms. A release date for this game on Android and iOS has not been announced yet but we believe it will be at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.
