Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Viking adventure did so well that it’s getting a second year of DLC content. However, there’s still plenty on the way for Year 1, and today’s Ubisoft Forward presentation revealed the first gameplay footage of The Siege of Paris expansion, as well as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s own Discovery Tour.
Ubisoft Film and Television
During the course of Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft Film and Television revealed new trailers for Werewolf Within and Mythic Quest. Werewolf Within is an upcoming feature film. Mythic Quest, on the other hand, is an Apple+ comedy.
Far Cry 6
The Ubisoft Forward presentation gave us a terrifying look at Far Cry 6‘s villain, Antón Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito.
It also confirmed that in the Season Pass DLCs, you’ll play the villains of the previous games.
In each DLC, you’ll play as the villain and delve inside the minds of Vaas Montenegro, Pagan Min and Joseph Seed to uncover their backstories and find out what it’s like to become the villain.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope
Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and the Rabbids are back to take on a new enemy called Cursa. A sequel to Mario + Rabbids, this new game sees the crew explore a sci-fi setting where Cursa, who has been plunging the galaxy into chaos, twisting the planets with its evil influence, has been consuming the energy of the Sparks – uncanny new characters formed by the fusion of Lumas and the Rabbids.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
The game we all didn’t ask for, nor expected, was revealed as the finale of the presentation. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, a first person, action-adventure experience developed by Massive Entertainment, was given a first look trailer. The game is set to release in 2022.
