    Ubisoft Forward is finally here, taking place a month exactly after E3 would have normally occurred. With the Devolver Direct having aired yesterday, this and the Xbox press event are some of the only conferences left to watch in regards to this year's summer games showcase. So be sure to get your popcorn, settle in, and see what new games Ubisoft has to show us. We know we'll see Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, which potentially had its release date leaked earlier today--meaning the game may launch on November 17th. We can also expect the full reveal of Far Cry 6, which also previously leaked. What we won't see, however, is any mention of Ubisoft's internal misconduct accusations, which were handled this morning when Ubisoft fired multiple management-level workers involved in alleged abusive behavior.

    Don't forget to grab Watch Dogs 2 as well, which is being given away for free on Uplay during the livestream.

    The event begins at 12pm PT / 8pm BST.

    We start on Watch Dogs Legion. We see London, in a future where a surveillance society reigns, in a new cinematic short film.

    Again, each character has slightly different lines, as part of all the different people you can recruit for your cause.

    A different trailer shows more of the wacky characters, their motivations, and what the world looks like in the game. Certain people will have special weapons and abilities, like a construction worker using wrenches as a weapon, or a drone expert scoping the area out with tech tools.

    Oct 29 launch.

    Brawlhalla is up next. It's coming to iOS and Android. Crossplay with other platforms. August 6 release date.

    Might and Magic - Era of Chaos. The trailer celebrates player milestones reached since the game's launch. Play it now on mobile.

    Ubisoft talks about how the player support of Rainbox Six Siege is humbling, with more players than ever before. Dealing with bugs, making sure the game is the best it can be for its community. There will be more Rainbow 6 to come.

    Time to see more of Ubisoft's new game, Hyperscape. Cinematic trailer. Creative director is here to talk about the game. The devs are discussing the character designs and outfits, how inspired they felt when making each of the roster, and more.

    Ubisoft will certainly take advantage of next gen hardware, as Xbox's Phil Spencer is on camera to talk about Xbox Smart Delivery for Watch Dogs Legion.

    Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is next. They want players to create a personal adventure. You can play as a female or male. You'll have to fight to create your own settlement.

    The fighting system now has a more intense focus on the brutal technique of Vikings. You can raid towns, to which your crew will follow you and pillage.

    You'll be making settlements for your people. There will also be many types of enemies. You'll need to figure out each weakness to take them down. Throwing axes, harpoons, quiet nonlethal takedowns, and dual weapon wielding of any type of weapon are available to you.

    As it's Assassin's Creed, you can blend in and hide from guards, too. Stealth will be an element of the game.

    You can also hunt animals, or explore the lands for ruins and what they hide.

    "Massive army assaults" against fortresses will also be a feature. Norse mythology themed secret bosses are included.

    The show is almost over, but there's still more reveals yet to be had. Far Cry 6 is confirmed. February 18, 2021 launch date.

    That's the end.

    Seriously? I didn't want to bother watching it at all, but I guess I can just keep it muted and minimized. Yet another derpy decision from Ubi, none of their competitors keep game giveaways under lock and key like this.

    It is not all that bad. you just go here,https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/forward and sign nto your Ubisoft account. While signed in all you have to do is watch the stream for 1 minute to get Watch Dogs 2. You can wtach for a total of 40 minutes to get other extra rewards but i couldn't care less about them myself so ill just get the game.

    Oh okay that's fine then, considering I'm signed into uPlay in preparation for redeeming it anyway. I figured they'd make you watch a minimum of 45 minutes or something like that.

    This is what I'm doing, I got uplay on my server pc that I control via vnc. I'm just going to turn it on in an hour and leave it, not watch a second of it personally, but the system will still log I've watched it. Instead I shall be seeing what this Ozark show is all about

    I am glad they didnt do that as i think you will not be able to minimise the screen to get the watch time. Then again you could just alter the windows size as well.

    The pre show thing is on now. You can watch that for 1 minute and it should give you the game tomorrow.

    As I've said previously, this is the first time in years I've bothered to open uPlay. If not for the giveaway it would've stayed unused on my machine for another couple years at least.

    I am having problems with the Shop as i can not access it, so that may be why you can not log in. Try again in 30 minutes or so and see if you can log in. The stream is working fine for me,maybe you try Youtube? They are using youtube to stream it so as long as you can log in you will get the free game. here is the steam link,https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/forward?upc-locale=en-US&upc-worldregion=EMEA&upc-country=GB

    Same boat, I'm logged into uplay, but when I click the stream it won't log in, it just goes round in a circle of asking me to log in. Can't even link twitch to my ubisoft account

    I managed to login and watch 4-5 minutes at the very beginning. Hopefully that should be good enough, but it's rather annoying that it doesn't give any sort of confirmation.

    Now it seems like yeah, their servers are overloaded, can't log back in to the stream. Just displays Ubi's flashing butthole logo infinitely.

    Sadly i have a bad felling that we may have to wait for the Forward steam itself in 30 minutes then watch 1 minute and it should confrim the reward. I to have no conformation of any rewards so that must be the case? Even so it is no problem i can wait. Also you do not get the game until July 13th. It will still confrim that you get the reward since Ubisoft will need to know what accounts get the rewards and so on.

    Thanks for the help. You do not have to use twitch to get the free game though but i may try it. It says that you can use twitch or your uplay account.
