What a showing from Ubisoft Forward at E3.
Far Cry 6 was the headline act, but we've also seen deep dives into Rainbow 6 Extraction, Riders Republic and Mario + Rabbids - with new DLC coming to Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

And that goes without mentioning Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Rainbow 6 Extraction gets release date
Big news! Next up in the huge Rainbow 6 franchise - Extraction arrives on 16 September 2021.
Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline
We knew it was coming:
Here we go...
The livestream has commenced with the preshow - which you can watch right here:
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope
It was recently leaked that a new Mario + Rabbids game is coming in 2022.
The game has been titled Sparks of Hope. While this game could be reserved for the Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, Kingdom Battle was actually unveiled during a Ubisoft event.
While Miyamoto won't be able to take the stage to thunderous cheers, it makes sense to still reveal the game as part of Ubisoft's show, with additional detail during the Nintendo Direct.
Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 Start Time
The main Ubisoft Forward showcase will begin at 12 pm PT / 3 pm ET on Saturday, June 12.
There will be an hour-long preshow event beginning at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET, so make sure to tune in early for the full experience!
How to Watch Ubisoft Showcase
Ubisoft Forward will be livestreamed on the company's official social media channels.
You can use the following links to watch the event on the platform of your choice: YouTube, Twitch.
What We Know Is Coming
Ubisoft has actually been fairly forthright with what we can expect out of the show.
During the preshow, we will see updates for the company's various live service games, like For Honor, The Crew 2, and Watch Dogs Legion.
During the actual Ubisoft Forward event, we know that both Far Cry 6 and Riders Republic will get quite a bit of screentime.
The Siege of Paris, the upcoming piece of DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, is also due to be shown
The recently-renamed Rainbow Six: Extraction, too, is supposed to get a proper showing as well.
What We Hope to See
This might be hopeful, considering the game's tortured development cycle, but we haven't heard anything about Beyond Good & Evil 2.
Would it be too much to hope for an update on that front?
We also learned about a Star Wars game in the works over at Ubisoft, back in January, it could be a good time to show a little of that.
Another game to have faced repeated delays is the multiplayer pirate game, Skull and Bones. We might get a release window for that one, with a bit of luck.
The countdown is on to Ubisoft Forward, we won't have too much longer to wait to find out.
