What is a FORGE file?

A FORGE file is a game data file used by an Ubisoft video game, such as Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, or Rainbow Six Siege. It may contain level data, 3D models, textures, and sounds used in the game. FORGE files are saved in a proprietary format and not meant to be opened by players.

More Information

The PC versions of many Ubisoft video games use the FORGE file format to compress and package game data. Even with their embedded files compressed, FORGE files are quite large. Most FORGE files have a file size of over 200 MB.

How to open a FORGE file

While FORGE files cannot be opened, ARchive_neXt and Maki are both Windows utilities that allow players to extract game assets from FORGE files. ARchive_neXt works with all FORGE files except those used by Rainbow Six Siege, while Maki works with Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed 2 FORGE files.
