Ubisoft Lays out What It’s Showing at its E3 Forward Showcase

Hope you like Rainbow Six.

Ubisoft’s upcoming Forward presentation (which is either part of E3 or Summer Game Fest, depending on who you ask) is taking place on June 12. The company has released a lengthy rundown of what it plans on showing at the presentation on its official website, and so here’s a bulleted list of what you should expect.

  • The show will begin with a pre-show at 11 a.m. PT that Saturday, including looks at new content for For Honor, Trackmania, The Crew 2, Brawlhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion.
  • After about an hour, the main event will begin at 12 p.m. PT. It will include updates on the company’s live games (perhaps Hyper Scape will see a re-appearance?), as well as “some surprises” on that front.
  • A new look at the next Rainbow Six game. The project was originally called Rainbow Six Quarantine but has since been re-named because, well, sensitivity? An internal mockup for Rainbow Six Parasite surfaced back in February, but the company says that won’t be the new title.
  • Far Cry will get another showcase following its gameplay premiere late last month.
  • Riders Republic, the multiplayer extreme sports game, will be making an appearance.
  • Ubisoft will cover new content for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Rainbow Six Siege.
  • Outside of games, Ubisoft will also be talking about its workplace comedy show Mythic Quest and the movie Werewolves Within. The company says it will have “a few additional surprises” on the movie and TV front.
  • After the main show ends, a post-show will begin at 1 p.m. PT, which will showcase more of the game once known as Rainbow Six Quarantine.

Somewhere in all these “surprises” might be a look at The Division Heartland, a free-to-play game in the Division universe. All of this will happen on the same day as E3’s own pre-show and a showcase from Gearbox. As of this writing, there’s no time set for the Gearbox showing, so there’s a chance all this Ubisoft stuff might overlap.
