Everything shown during Ubisoft Forward 2024

The Ubisoft Forward 2024 showcase has drawn to close. Don’t worry if you missed it, though, as we’re about to go over everything which made an appearance during the showcase. From major releases to updates for existing titles to Assassin’s Creed – because this is Ubisoft Forward and there has to be Assassin’s Creed news. It’s the law.

You’ll find all of the announcements below, along with their accompanying trailers, for everything shown during Ubisoft Forward 2024.

Rocksmith+

While the Ubisoft Forward 2024 pre-show actually began with a dicussion about Skull and Bones water mechanics, the first proper game trailer we got was for Rocksmith+, a game designed to teach you how to play the guitar. Well, it can now also teach you how to play the piano. You can try RockSmith+ for free on PlayStation 4 and 5.

This Bed We Made

Next came This Bed We Made from Lowbirth Games, one of several indie games which got a pre-show spot as they are “supported” by Ubisoft. Here you play as a maid who has a bad habit of looking through the belongings of the people staying at the hotel she works for. Yet, someone seems to be watching her in return…

This Bed We Made can be played now on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5 and Xbox.

It was then time for a game which has been the root of many a family fight: Monopoly. If you fancy playing Monopoly digitally rather than as a board game (very helpful if you’ve lost the little hat), it launches in September on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5 and Xbox.

Here you’ll follow Naoe, an assassin from the Iga Province, and Yasuke, an Africian samurai based upon a historical figure with the same name. Together Naoe and Yasuke will travel across Japan during the late Sengoku period. Who you play as will also determine your combat style; Naoe offering that traditional stealth-based Assassin’s Creed gameplay, while Yasuke prefers to approach fights head on. The game even has a full year style where the gameworld will change in time with the seasons and weather.

Hope a game caught your eye during the Ubisoft Forward 2024! Unless it was Beyond Good and Evil 2, then bad luck I guess. (Personally I’m just happy I got through this showcase without any tech issues. Unlike the last two…)
