Ubisoft Forward is fast approaching, and the digital event should be packed with news about upcoming titles, as well as a special Assassin’s Creed showcase.
Fans of the series will want to tune in for the 15th anniversary celebrations this Saturday, as well as more information on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Rumors about the title have been circulating for some time, but Ubisoft only recently confirmed its existence. The reveal was announced for Ubisoft Forward this weekend, along with more details on the future of the franchise.
In addition to the Assassin’s Creed news, the publisher has also confirmed that it will be releasing updates on a few other series, as well as the new Skull and Bones IP. And to entice viewers to stick around during the event, Ubisoft is offering Twitch drop rewards that can be claimed depending on how long you watch the stream.
So if any of these games pique your interest and you want some in-game goodies, tune in to Ubisoft Forward at Saturday, September 11. You can find the event start times, as well as everything we expect to see at the event, below.
Ubisoft Forward 2022: Start time and how to watch
The Ubisoft Forward live stream starts on Saturday, September 10 at 9pm CEST. Here’s what that means in your time zone:
- 12 pm PT
- 17h ET
- 8pm BST
- 5 a.m. ACT (Sunday, September 11)
To get in the mood, there’s a pre-show that starts 25 minutes before the main event. It will feature updates on Ubisoft’s live games, including Brawlhalla, For Honor, The Crew 2 and Anno 1800.
Ubisoft Forward 2022: what to expect
Stop by the pre-show to hear “news about the latest seasons, characters and content” from a selection of their games live. So expect updates on Brawlhalla, For Honor, The Crew 2, Anno 1800, and more.
During the main event, there will be updates on a ton of new titles. We were promised details about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Skull and Bones and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
It looks like much of the 60-minute event will be dedicated to Assassin’s Creed, as the franchise is getting its own dedicated showcase. Mirage is set to be a return to the series’ roots, with a renewed focus on stealth rather than the open-world RPGs we’ve seen in recent installments.
Rumors also suggest that there are at least two additional Assassin’s Creed games in the works: one set in feudal Japan and another in 16th-century Europe centered on witch-hunting. Given that Ubisoft teased “a peek into the franchise’s future,” we can see these rumors finally being addressed.
