It’s official! E3 2021 has now begun as it kicked off today with the Ubisoft Forward showcase, which brought us some new trailers and gameplay for some of Ubisoft’s biggest games. If you missed the livestream or simply want to catch up again on what happened, here's the full Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 recap.

First of all, some big news for Rainbow Six Extraction fans: the game finally has an official launch date and is releasing this September 22nd. Ubisoft also unveiled their plans for the post-launch content of Far Cry 6 already, plus some brand new gameplay of Riders Republic, and updates to some of their live service games as well.

Those new game reveals included Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, a sequel to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. But the most interesting of all was the official reveal of Ubisoft’s Avatar game known as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. There’s also DLC reveals for Assassins Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion.

But video games aren’t the only thing Ubisoft is working on, as they also produce some TV shows and movies, which they weren’t afraid to show during today’s livestream. These included a look at Mythic Quest before its big Season 2 finale, as well as the upcoming Werewolves Within movie.

Announcing 3 DLC's and a Season Pass for a FULLPRICE game 4 months prior to it's release is such a classic Ubisoft move. Screw you guys.

lol, rehashing old characters for WD and FC... Also, FC6 isn't even out yet and they're already selling the "season pass" - wtf? If they know what they're doing already - it should be in the game.

I was pretty excited for the game, but seeing this + the fact that it isn't even on steam really make me not wanna bother with it. DLC used to be content that was created between the final phases of developement and release (and beyond sometimes) to bridge the gap until the next game gets developed, nowadays they just cut content out of games to sell for extra cash. It's still 4 months until release and they're already comfortable with announcing 3(!) paid DLC's? Just wow

Ubi doing ubi things because they can and people still keep giving them money.
Also...on "steam" you'd just get double DRM with ubi games, unfortunately.

So ubisoft has Rainbow six, far cry, assassins creed, watch dogs. Formula: minimally change graphics, mix up the location/characters add bland story and a map full of collectables boom you have a ubisoft game. Ubisoft is like the master of AAA asset flip people love to sh+t on call of duty but ubisoft has taken it to the next level...
