By Xite - July 13, 2020
Ubisoft, in a pre-recorded ‘Forward 2020’, showed off all of the new games they have been working on, with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion being the centre of attraction.

Last night, Ubisoft held its annual Ubisoft Forward event wherein it announced multiple games: Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and a few more. Apart from launching these games, the company also announced that it will host the second part of the Ubisoft event later this year.

Here are the major announcements made by Ubisoft:

  • Watch Dogs Legion

Watch Dogs Legion will be available from October 29, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One X, and PC. Also, it will be made available for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X soon. The gameplay takes place in London post-Brexit, with everyone under heavy surveillance. A few new things have also been added to the game like one can play as NPCs (non-playable characters) in the game. It looks pretty good from the little we could gather from the trailer.

The game seems to be pretty good and has amazing graphics. It might be quite similar to Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
