Announced back in May, Ubisoft Forward is the publisher’s upcoming “E3-style showcase,” and it should include new trailers and footage of upcoming Ubisoft titles, including the likes of Assassins’ Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and many more. Ubisoft Forward follows the recent trend of publishers holding their own E3-style presentations online given that pretty much all major video game events in 2020 have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
