    Ubisoft Forward 2024 – Covering A Galaxy Far Far Away

    Ubisoft Forward 2024 just wrapped up a few hours ago and although there were a few new announcements, most of the showcase covered existing games or games that were already announced including Star War: Outlaws which took most of the show’s screen time.

    Before the live stream began, they ran a quick trailer which covered most of the game under Ubisoft which included:

    • Skull & Bones – Water Tech
    • Rocksmith
    • This Bed We Made
    • Just Dance VR
    • Monopoly
    • King of the Hats
    • Rainbow Siege Six
    • Biomorph
    • BattleCore Arena
    • For Honour
    • Assassin’s Creed Mirage iOS
    • The Division 2

    With these out of the way, the show began a live performance of a soundtrack from Star Wars: Outlaws

    Star War: Outlaws

    Surprisingly the game looks good. The gameplay trailer starts with Kay walking through a lively bar and into the alley as she enters her ship. The environment does look busy with people chatting or fist-fighting around. Once entering the ship, we can see that space combat will be a plus for any Star Wars fan.

    The game will allow you to land on the planet and use an excellent landing animation to hide the loading. The trailer shows Kay landing on Tatooine and exploring the desert with a speeder as she tracks down an old gunslinger who can teach her skills.

    After the gameplay trailer, they ran another overview trailer where the mechanics (and maybe looks like some flashback) of how Kay & Nix can work together. It also shows you how you can get news skills like the shielded Z-6 rotary blaster cannon. Conversations you have and also the choices you make will affect your reputation and how certain story element goes including a way to be wanted by the Empire.

    With the things shown so far, it looks like Star Wars: Outlaws might just be the Star Wars game the fans have been waiting for.

    Next up was a short trailer of what is to come in Ubisoft’s latest free-to-play first-person shooter, XDefiant. The new season will bring a new faction, GSK from Rainbow Six Siege.

    Assassin’s Creed Shadows

    After a short clip showing some of the other game updates, the show continues with a live performance of a soundtrack from Assassin’s Creed Shadows. It starts with The Samurai Yasuke riding on a horse and entering a village. In there, we see how people bow to him as he walks by and also you can pet the dog.

    The gameplay trailer further shows how players can approach situations either by ploughing through the front gates with Yasuke or sneaking around as the Shinobi Naoe. The gameplay continues with the trailer choosing to sneak around and we can see Naoe running on the rooftop, swinging and performing a takedown and then hiding in tall bushes. Iconic trademark Shinobi skills were also shown like the famous bamboo breathing underwater is used to finally take down the target.

    Post Show Deep Dives

    With Assassin’s Creed Shadows being the final show, the post-show started which gave more behind-the-scenes and deep dive into Assassin’s Creed Shadow, Star Wars: Outlaws and Division 2.
