All Of The Ubisoft Forward 2024 Announcements


Can you believe I’ve never stayed up for an Ubisoft Forward before?

They’ve always been a little outside of my timezone. I’m not sure why I’m telling you this, maybe because I can’t think of anything else to write for this intro.

Anyway, there is an Ubisoft Forward happening as I type this. We know there’ll be more Assassin’s Creed: Shadows, Star Wars: Outlaws and XDefiant. What else? We’ll have to see.

But without further adieu, here are all the announcements and trailers from the Ubisoft Forward for 2024.


The Show Opened With A Deep Dive Into Star Wars: Outlaws, And It Looks Pretty Solid

The deep dive followed Kay Vess as she tracked down one of the game’s many bounties to the famous Mos Eisley cantina in Tatooine. From one point to another, we see Kay take to space (seamlessly) before taking part in an optional dogfight and then jumping to Tatooine. It looks like it has much more depth and detail than I originally thought. Brodie spoke to the creative director about the game recently. If that’s not enough, you can even read his (always scintillating) insights on the game here, too. Star Wars: Outlaws is on track for release on August 30th 2024.

If That’s Too Long For You, Ubisoft Also Dropped A Shorter Gameplay Overview Trailer Too

The short trailer discusses the lengths Kay Vess will go to to obtain the bounties she’s after, the choice system that’ll be in play and allof the locales that Kay and her adorable little companion Nix will visit.

The First Extended Gameplay Walkthrough Of Assassin’s Creed Shadows Looks Pretty Good

It’s looking mighty fine, and it’s encouraging to see both playable characters play dramatically different roles in the first true next-gen Assassin’s Creed. The deep dive went into how the game will play and showcased all of the new improvements to the engine, making it one of the biggest jumps in the series since Origins. Like Star Wars, Brodie also had a chat to the team behind the game if that interests you. He also played the game and gave his thoughts too. Assassin’s Creed Shadows is still on track for release on November 15th 2024.

Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time Remake Was Dated, But Don’t Expect It Soon

Despite being announced four years ago, the short teaser confirmed the game was coming in 2026. I’m genuinely in shock that it’s taking so long, but at least they’ll get it right. I hope.

The First Season Of XDefiant Was Shown Off And Brings A Whole Bunch Of Maps And Modes To The Game

The new faction being added is called the GSK. They’ll launch with three new weapons. There’ll be one map a month for the season. Capture The Flag is even being added as a mode. It’s out on July 2nd, but the full reveal of the season will be the day before.

The Skull & Bones Team Detailed The Second Season Of The Game And Teased What’s To Come In The Third

There’s a new ship and dramatic opera-loving villains to plunder. Is that the right word? I don’t know. There’ll also be new fleet management options and a new creature – the megalodon – being dropped into the sea somewhere. The third season will also introduce a new 5v5 PvP mode and a sea dragon creature to battle with.

Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown Is Getting Even More Updates

The new updates will add a set of challenges called “Divine Trials” to the game, as well as free updates that are available now, including new amulets and platforming challenges to complete. Their trailer ended with a tease for a new Story DLC called The Mask of Darkness, and that’s coming in September 2024.

The First And Free Rogue Prince Of Persia’s Update Was Detailed

It’s looking great, though the game is still in early access at this stage. The update is called Temple Of Fire and it’s a free one. Dynamic.

We Got A Look At The First Story Expansion For Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora

It’s called The Sky Breaker, and it will see the Na’vi take the fight to a mysterious shadow looming in the sky. It’s out on July 16th.

We Got Even More Updates On The Final Season For The Crew: Motorfest’s First Year, As Well As A Tease Of Year 2

I have no idea about cars, sorry, but the second year of The Crew: Motorfest will introduce a brand new Hawaiian island to the game, for free. There’s other stuff that aficionados will appreciate, too. It reminds me a little bit of Hot Pursuit, I think. It’s coming to The Crew: Motorfest in November 2024. There’ll be an event detailing it all in September.

A New Anno Game Is Coming And It’s Set In A Long Requested Setting

It’s a live-action teaser at this point, but it confirms that the game will take place in the Pax Romana, and for the first time in Anno, you’ll be able to choose your starting province. It’s due out in 2025 for both PC and consoles.
