Ubisoft Forward September 2022: How to watch, what to expect

Ubisoft is hosting another Ubisoft Forward today, which means new announcements are on the horizon. The event will not only share updates on upcoming games, but will also showcase a tease at the future of one of its flagship franchises and more.

Here’s when it’ll air, how to watch it, and what you can expect.

When is Ubisoft Forward September 2022:

This Ubisoft Forward is set to begin today: Saturday, September 10. The stream starts at noon PT. As usual, there is also a preshow that begins at 11:35 a.m. PT. While there is no confirmed runtime, Ubisoft is offering Twitch drops during the show that will reward players up to the 60-minute mark, so expect it to be an hour long at least.

How to watch the Ubisoft Forward:

Ubisoft Forward 2022 will be streamed through the official Ubisoft YouTube and Twitch channels. Viewers can also watch via Ubisoft’s official website through the Forward portal.

Ubisoft also has official Twitch co-streamers that can be watched for the event. By watching these streams or the official Ubisoft Twitch channel during Forward, viewers can earn Twitch drop rewards for different view times.

  • Watch for 15 minutes to earn the Skull and Bones Emblem in Skull and Bones
  • Watch for 30 minutes to earn the Explosive Detail Charm in Rainbow Six Siege
  • Watch for 45 minutes to earn the RC22 Original Cosmetic in Roller Champions
  • Watch for 60 minutes to earn the Sphinx Tattoo Set in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

What to expect from Ubisoft Forward

Ubisoft confirmed that updates on several upcoming titles, including Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope and Skull and Bones, will be part of the event. There will be news about the company’s live-service games too, including BrawlhallaThe Crew 2For HonorAnno 1800, and more.

The star of the stream, however, will be Assassin’s Creed. This presentation will give viewers a peek at the franchise’s future, including our first look at the recently revealed Assassin’s Creed Mirage. More games in the series are reportedly in development, so its possible we’ll see even more during the show.

What not to expect from Ubisoft Forward

Following multiple delays, don’t expect any updates on the upcoming Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake. The same goes for the recently delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, as Ubisoft hasn’t noted any presence of the game at the event. Its possible that one or both could appear in some form, but Ubisoft hasn’t advertised either for the show. Instead, expect a larger focus on the company’s holiday 2022 plans.

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.

The Plucky Squire is the Zelda: Link Between Worlds follow-up I’ve been craving
A space shooter wraps around a mug in The Plucky Squire.

Of all the indie games set to release in the back half of 2024, The Plucky Squire has to be at the top of my list. I've been interested in the Devolver Digital-published project ever since its reveal thanks to its perspective-shifting gameplay. Players run through the pages of a storybook in 2D, but jump out of it to solve puzzles in the 3D world around it. It's one of those design hooks that immediately catches my eye, but I always have to stop and wonder if an idea like that will end up playing as a cute gimmick.

Thankfully, I'm not worried about that with The Plucky Squire. During a 45-minute preview at Summer Game Fest, I got a much better ideas of how much gas developer All Possible Future has in its tank to power its premise. The slice I played already teased an adventure full of surprises that should make it as charming as I'm hoping it'll be.

My adventure begins a few hours into the full game in a truncated chapter with a few puzzles removed for the sake of time. During that time, I'd get to get a feel for both The Plucky Squire's 2D and 3D gameplay, and the way that those two ideas intersect. First, I'd start in the pages of a book. These sections play out like a standard top-down adventure where I control a little hero with a moveset not so far off from Link's. I can slash enemies, spin attack, and even perform a sword plant. In the first half of my demo, I'd chop down some enemies and find keys in some simple platforming puzzles.

Tales of the Shire is very serious about second breakfast
A hobbit chops food in Tales of the Shire.

There have been plenty of Lord of the Rings video games created over the past two decades. Many of those focus on epic fantasy action, retelling the story of the original trilogy or at least playing around in its surrounding events (with mixed results). While that makes for a fun literary fantasy come to life, the franchise has always left a market untapped. Fighting is fun, but what about players who simply want to live out a quiet hobbit life?

Tales of the Shire: A The Lord of the Rings Game is set to deliver that fantasy. Rather than focusing on bloody battles against orcs, it's a cozy life sim that lets players enjoy a leisurely life in a hobbit hole. It’s a dream come true in its own right. I got to see a bit of how that works at Summer Game Fest, where I tried out a sunny, 30-minute demo. While it didn’t give me a full sense of its life simulator elements, I at least learned one important thing: Tales of the Shire is as serious about cooking as its hobbits are.
