In their latest Ubisoft Forward event on Thursday, Ubisoft revealed more games, trailers and events coming out over the next six months.
Immortals: Fenyx Rising
Immortals: Fenyx Rising, previously known as Gods and Monsters, launches on December 3, 2020 after originally being scheduled for February earlier this year. It is a third-person, open world, action-adventure game set on Greece’s Golden Isle and the world of Greek mythology.
Fenyx, your customizable main character, embarks on a journey to save the gods after being shipwrecked and meeting Hermes, who insists that Fenyx is the hero from an important prophecy. The story, narrated by Zeus and Prometheus, follows Fenyx as they adventure through the domain of each Greek god to take down the Titan terrorizing the world.
Immortals: Fenyx Rising will have an exclusive playable demo on Google Stadia later this year, letting players explore an island specifically created for the experience. However, the full game will release on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remakes

There was a lot of Rainbow Six Siege in today’s Ubisoft Forward.
The first announcement was the World Cup, set to launch in 2021. It’s exactly what it sounds like – an international, country-based competition coming to Rainbow Six Siege. Tony Parker, a former professional NBA basketball player, will serve as the ambassador for the event.

Watch Dogs Legion
Watch Dogs Legion announced a collaboration with British rapper and musician Stormzy. Stormzy’s music will be featured in the game and a mission based off his song, called “Fall On My Enemies,” will launch with the game on October 29.
Additionally, Aiden Pearce, protagonist of the first Watch Dogs game, will be a playable hero and have his own story arc in Watch Dogs Legion for fans who buy the season pass.
The Ubisoft Forward also showed off more information about how recruitment works in the upcoming game.
