E3 2021 Recap: Ubisoft Forward and Everything You Missed

Ubisoft had some interesting reveals over the weekend while others fell a little flat.



Saturday kicked off this year’s E3 2021 event which was practically all online for viewers to check out from the comfort of their own homes. Yeah, you know why- pandemic stuff. But enough about that. Let’s get to why you are here: Ubisoft.

Ubisoft had a handful of goodies to show off including some trailers for a few games that have us super hyped. First up on our list is Rainbow Six Extraction.

Rainbox Six Extraction

As the threat grows, our Operators rise to meet it. In Extraction, Rainbow Six has been united under REACT. Their mission: learn about the enemy, stop its spread at all costs… and leave no one behind. Hibana has gone Missing in Action. See Operators Ela, Lion, and Nomad, under commands from Eliza “Ash” Cohen, mount a daring rescue mission, as they use intel, teamwork, and improvisation to save one of their own from a dangerous new enemy.

Play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and new Ubisoft releases with our gaming subscription. Embark on a journey in over 100 games on PC. Plus, play across your devices from the cloud (beta).

Ubisoft took the time to introduce us to yet another subscription service that, well, is exactly what you would expect. Pay a premium each month and get access to the majority of the Ubisoft catalog of games, over 100+. Seems cool but it’s not really our thing. Pricing starts at $6.99 per month then jumps to $14.99 each month after that. Some players may find the value, and it is there to an extent, but others may skip out on this entirely, which is probably where most of the GO staff will be.

Here is a rundown of some key features of Ubisoft+ that may interest you:

  • Play new titles the day they release and get access to our growing catalog
  • Get access to expansions, season passes, and more content
  • Every month, get new customization items, boosters, and in-game rewards
  • Easily jump back in your subscription whenever you want

Check out the official site on Ubisoft+ for more information.
