Ubisoft details next-gen enhancements coming to all its upcoming games

Free upgrades from current-gen versions.

There's a bunch of new consoles a-coming, dontcha know, and with only a few weeks left until next-gen is officially go, Ubisoft has taken the time to detail the various technological enhancements customers can take advantage of when playing some of its (mostly) upcoming games on either Xbox Series X/S or PlayStation 5.

In total, Ubisoft has outlined the next-gen improvements coming to eight of its games - Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Far Cry 6, Riders Republic, Just Dance 2021, Rainbow Six Siege, and For Honor - in the not-too-distant future. The list originates from a lengthy post on its website, but you'll find a more succinct version below.
