Summer Gaming Marathon Feature Image
This story is part of our Summer Gaming Marathon series.

Ubisoft will hold its next video game showcase later today. The latest in its Ubisoft Forward series of live streams, this will be a live event in Los Angeles that will provide updates on many of the company’s upcoming titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Considering much of Ubisoft’s lineup has suffered some sort of delay over the past year or two, this Ubisoft Forward is the company’s best chance to reaffirm confidence in its upcoming game lineup.

Fans of series like Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, and and The Crew will want to tune in to 2023’s Ubisoft Forward to see what’s next for their favorite franchises. Those who want to learn more about previously teased titles like Star Wars Outlaws will also want to watch. If this is a show you’re interested in, we’re breaking down how you can watch the showcase and what you should expect from it.

When is Ubisoft Forward 2023

The pre-show for this year’s Ubisoft Forward will begin at 9:45 a.m. PT today, June 12. That preshow will last 15 minutes, so if you only care about the biggest announcements, you don’t need to worry about tuning in until 10 a.m. PT today.

Ubisoft Forward: Official Livestream - June 2023 | #UbiForward

There are two primary places to watch this year’s Ubisoft Forward: the company’s official YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ve even embedded the YouTube live stream above, so you can watch it from this article when the presentation begins. Those who want Twitch Drops may want to consider watching the Ubisoft Forward from there, as watching on that platform will net players items in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Riders Republic, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

What to expect from Ubisoft Forward 2023

In terms of what will be shown off at the event, Ubisoft has confirmed that the showcase will feature “upcoming Ubisoft games, including Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, The Crew Motorfest, and more.” Hopefully, we get an even deeper look at Mirage‘s gameplay following its release date reveal at the PlayStation Showcase last month, as well as release dates for those other two titles.

During the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, Meta confirmed that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR would also appear during this presentation, while a gameplay reveal for Star Wars Outlaws was confirmed during the Xbox Games Showcase. We’ll also likely see more of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which was revealed during Summer Game Fest. Ubisoft also has plenty of other announced titles without release dates like Skull & Bones, XDefiant, Tom Clancy’s The Division ResurgenceHeartland, Beyond Good and Evil 2, and a remake of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell that it can possibly show off.

If nothing else, we hope to have a clear picture of what Ubisoft’s release lineup will look like for the next year following this showcase.

Summer is one of the most exciting times to be a gamer, as it's when most video game developers and publishers tease what's coming next. For years, this was all centered around E3, but since that show went away during the COVID-19 pandemic, publishers have switched things up and held a variety of reveal-focused live-stream events throughout the entire season. This year has been no different, especially with E3 2023 is canceled.

On May 24, Sony kicked things off with a PlayStation Showcase that revealed games like a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake and that Bungie is reviving the Marathon series. In June, though, the number of showcases ramped up. Now, things are winding down with new Tokyo Game Show-related events, as well as a second Nintendo Direct. It can be a lot to keep track of, but we're here to help. This is every important, announcement-filled video game live stream that has taken place throughout summer 2023.
