Devolver Digital, the publisher that first tweeted about E3 being cancelled before the announcement was official, is gearing up for its annual Devolver Direct showcase. The event, which was promised in May and then was more recently suggested to be arriving in mid-July, will seemingly be dated–and possibly detailed–very soon.
In a tweet on the official Devolver Digital account, the publisher has promised “Devolver Direct news tomorrow,” and that it will be good news. This means that we’re likely to see a date for the event made official on July 1.
Devolver Direct news tomorrow. Good news, not bad news.
— Devolver Digital (@devolverdigital) July 1, 2020
Devolver Directs (also known as the Big Fancy Press Conference) are generally a mix of new game announcements, new details on previously announced or released titles, and the ongoing saga of chief synergy officer Nina Struthers, who always finds herself in some degree of violent, horrifying mischief. In 2019, Devolver Bootleg surprise-launched during the presentation.
Keep an eye on GameSpot for new details on Devolver Direct 2020 when they become available to us.

Brawlhalla Headed To Mobile With Cross-Play Support
The Ubisoft Forward event has come and gone, and it brought a lot of big news about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, Watch Dogs Legion, and Hyper Scape. Ubisoft also announced that its free-to-play 2D fighting game Brawlhalla is headed to mobile in August.
The game will release on mobile devices on August 6. Those who pre-register for iOS or Android can get a free skin for when the game is released.
Brawlhalla has been a huge success on console and PC, where it has “more than 40 million players” across Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game supports cross-play on those platforms, and cross-play will also be available on mobile at release.
Far Cry 6 Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Bonuses, Editions, And More
While we won’t get a new Far Cry game this year, we won’t have to wait too long into next year to get our hands on Far Cry 6. Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia (that’s a lot of platforms, we know). In typical Ubisoft fashion, numerous editions will be available to purchase, and pre-order listings are already starting to pop up. If you already know you’re down to jump into another zany open-world first-person shooter, you can snag some cool bonuses with your pre-order, too.
Far Cry 6 is set in the present day in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise that has been “frozen in time,” largely due to the country’s tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). As the hero of the story, you’ll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerilla faction to oust Castillo from power.
While next-gen consoles will already be out by the time Far Cry 6 releases, it’s worth noting that you’ll be able to buy one copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X. So if you aren’t planning on upgrading to a next-gen console right away, you’ll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you do decide to upgrade.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Has Fishing, And It’s Tied To An Important New Part Of The Game
As part of Ubisoft Forward, the developer shared a long list of new details about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla regarding the combat, how you can recruit cats, and that you’ll be able to switch between male and female Eivor at any point in the game.
Another detail confirmed during the presentation was that Valhalla will have a fishing mechanic–and it’s tied into another new system for the game. In Valhalla, your health does not automatically regenerate over time, so you will need to find ways to replenish it. One way is to catch and consume fish.
Given that Valhalla is set in 873 CE, the game does not feature actual fishing rods. So you will simply cast a line with your hand and try to catch a fish that way. Once you have a fish on the line, you’ll need to mash the A button to bring it in. You must control the direction of the fish and also the tension of your line to be able to successfully land the fish.
