Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
After CD Projekt Red and Bandai Namco were on board with Cyberpunk 2077 as the main sponsor for the event last year, Ubisoft will follow this year. Friendly Fire 6 is all about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

- Republic of Gamers (ROG)
- Sport Factory
When does Friendly Fire 6 start?
The starting shot will be given on Saturday, December 5th at 3 p.m. It is not yet clear when the live stream will end. Friendly Fire 5 achieved an impressive twelve hours without interruption in 2019.
The countdown to the start of the stream begins at 2 p.m. During this time, the clubs that will receive financial support this year will introduce themselves.
Due to the Corona-Situation the team had to rethink a bit this year. On the one hand, a complete hygiene and safety concept was worked out, and on the other hand, all people involved undergo several corona tests. Mikkel Robrahn, Friendly Fire project manager, adds:
“Our viewers have to be brave now: We have decided to remove kissing cards from the list of games. Generally anything where the exchange of body fluids takes place. That will be difficult for us too, but we have to go through it together.”
Where is the friendly fire stream transmitted?
As usual, the live stream takes place at a central point. This year you can watch the entire event on the PietSmiet’s Twitch Channel experience it live.
