Can you feel that excitement? E3 2021 is in full force, and the hype train continues today with the house of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Sam Fisher crossovers no one asked for. Outside of a little bit of projection there, we are so excited to watch this year’s Ubisoft Forward digital event with the GI Community.
The Council of Alexes (Van Aken and Stadnik) will be streaming the event live with you to react to all the biggest news, reveals, and hopefully a Splinter Cell game. As the party animals we are, we’re kicking the show off early at 1:45 p.m. CT to give you our hopes and dreams before Yves Guillemot crushes them and doesn’t give us the spy thriller that we all want.
But what will we actually see at today’s event? Far Cry 6 is one of Ubisoft’s huge titles for 2021, and the publisher has stated we’re set to get another look at Giancarlo Esposito’s new villain and Dani Rojas’ quest through the war-torn island of Yara. Riders Republic is also set to be at the show, highlighting more from Ubi’s open-world extreme sports title.
Also, while still unconfirmed by the publisher, the new Mario + Rabbids game has leaked ahead of the day’s festivities. Popping up early on the Nintendo eShop, Sparks Of Hope is set to drop in 2022 and features more of the bonkers tactical action featured in the original 2017 title. On top of all that, we can expect updates on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Rainbow Six Siege, and hopefully some additional surprises on the way as well.
The party doesn’t stop today, friends. We’re in the midst of the video game industry’s biggest week of the year, and we’re celebrating in style. We’re live streaming all the biggest conferences with you, giving our spicy reactions on the YouTube channel, and filling a huge E3 hub with all the content you could dream of. Thanks for watching!
