Ubisoft Launches New Subscription Service Called Uplay+

"Uplay+ also gives you a great reason to jump back into games you may have already played".

"The value of Uplay+ is that you not only get access to our upcoming releases, but you also get access to the premium editions, which includes all additional content for the game", said Ubisoft VP of platform and product management Brenda Panagrossi.

In the press release, Ubisoft even mentioned classics from the Far Cry, Rayman, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell and Beyond Good & Evil franchises; all of which had zero representation outside of a mobile game during Ubisoft's E3 2019 conference.

It's definitely the year of subscription services, and Ubisoft is the latest to announce an EA Access-style offering known as Uplay+. If you register for the service before August 15, you will get free access from the launch date of September 3 through September 30.

Uplay Plus will initially be available only on PC, but the service will extend to Google Stadia in 2020.

While Ubisoft has announced the package, there are not many details known about what games will actually be included with it. It would offer some free titles and other benefits, but customers will have to buy Stadia games separately. If you want to use UPlay Plus on Google Stadia, you would have to pay for both subscription services.

It seems like all companies are trying to create their own sub-based service these days, alongside all on their own platforms.

Upcoming Releases: Watch Dogs®: Legion, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon® Breakpoint, Rainbow Six® Quarantine, Gods & Monsters™ and more.

Sony's PlayStation Now, which costs $99 per year, allows you to download many of its titles for offline play.
