Ubisoft Forward June 2021: When it airs, how to watch, and what to expect

With the recent reveal of Far Cry 6‘s release date, as well as details about the game, Ubisoft has already played one of its big cards before its E3 2021 event, Ubisoft Forward. Despite that, the publisher seemingly has more to show off, with a new stream set for this weekend.

While Ubisoft hinted via its Forward schedule that some surprise announcements are in store, a few big titles are already set to appear, including world premiere trailer footage of the freshly renamed Rainbow Six Extraction. Here’s how to watch the show, which kicks off E3 today, and what we know will (and won’t) be at it.

When is the Ubisoft Forward?

Ubisoft Forward takes place later today. The preshow starts at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET, while Ubisoft’s main event starts at noon PT/3 p.m. ET. A post-show is confirmed for 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET, meaning the show will have a total runtime of three hours.

Where to watch Ubisoft Forward Live?

Ubisoft Forward: Official Livestream - June 2021 | #UbiForward | Ubisoft [NA]

The forward will only be officially streamed on Ubisoft’s website at Ubisoft.com/Forward. No other streaming sites such as YouTube or Twitch have been mentioned by Ubisoft, but a reference to Twitch Drops being offered during the show may mean there will be a stream there as well.

What will be shown at Ubisoft Forward?

Many games are confirmed to appear on the stream. While there are some “big” unnamed surprises in store, Ubisoft confirmed updates for live titles such as For Honor, Trackmania, The Crew 2, Brawlhalla, Watch Dogs: LegionAssassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Rainbow Six Siege.

There will also be world premiere gameplay of Rainbow Six Extraction and more Far Cry 6 coverage. Ubisoft’s new massive multiplayer open-world extreme sports title, Riders Republic, will also appear. Nintendo leaked Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope ahead of the show as well, which is likely to debut there.

Viewers can expect updates on Ubisoft’s Apple TV+ series Mythic Quest, its film Werewolves Within, and other surprises for the streaming service.

The post-show will featurs the Rainbow Six Siege community team discussing the game’s top issues and developer talk on the Operator roster’s latest addition, Operation North Star’s Thunderbird. There are also reveals in store, including streamer charms, a community artist bundle, and Sixth Guardian Charity bundle partnerships.

What won’t be shown at Ubisoft Forward

Fans hungry for more of The Division will be upset to hear that it won’t appear at the event. It’s been confirmed via Twitter that the game is still set for a year-end release but there are no updates to share. The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake is also confirmed to not have any presence at Ubisoft’s conference. It is unknown if more Beyond Good and Evil 2 news could be one of the teased surprises, but don’t expect it to show up.

Believe it or not, it has been over a decade since the last GTA game.

Grand Theft Auto City's main character stands in front of a neon sign.

The past has never looked so good. That applies not only to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City -- Definitive Edition itself, but also the 1980s-inspired style of the titular city. This entry was a blast from the past when it was first released, and it's downright retro today.

As much love as this entry received when it came out for its story and characters -- it's still often considered one of the best games released on that entire generation of consoles -- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City pushed open-world games in a whole new direction. In keeping with series tradition, which continues to be the case, this title was jam-packed with cheats that can completely change how the game is played. This game has far more than any other in the recently released trilogy, making it ripe for revisiting to see what crazy antics you can cause. There are even a few new ones not included in the original, so even die-hard fans will want to see our full list of all the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City -- Definitive Edition cheat codes.

Where to find the Coin Case in Pokémon Infinite Fusion
Casino in Pokémon Infinite Fusion.

Every Pokémon trainer knows that when you reach Celadon City, there's one essential stop — the casino! By playing slots and blackjack, players can earn enough coin to trade for rare Pokémon and powerful TMs next door.
