WHAT TO EXPECT FROM UBISOFT FORWARD

Ubisoft has confirmed that this Sunday's stream will give updates on Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion and Hyper Scape. The official site says there will also be surprises, which if you've been keeping up with the leaks, there's at least one huge new game announcement coming on Sunday.

The company will also have a post-show, which will feature a deep-dive walkthrough of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and a Hyper Scape showcase match.

Ubisoft is also giving away free PC copies of Watch Dogs 2 this weekend during Sunday's stream. All fans have to do to secure the game is watch the Ubisoft Forward stream while logged in to their Uplay accounts.

The official FAQ section on Ubisoft's website goes into a bit more detail on how to claim the free game. If players want the game, then they should be sure to set up an Uplay account before the presentation on Sunday.

But if you want to watch via Twitch and claim the game that way, you'll need to make sure your "accounts are SET UP to receive TWITCH DROPS."

The free copy of Watch Dogs 2 will be delivered on July 13.
