Ubisoft's all-you-can-play 'Uplay+' game subscription service launches in September

Thursday, 13 Jun, 2019

Ubisoft is making a big announcement at E3 this evening.

"The video game industry is constantly shifting, and our players' needs are evolving". The catalog will also serve up Ubisoft's classic and reknowned franchises including Heroes of Might and Magic, Far Cry, Prince of Persia, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Beyond Good & Evil and more.

Alongside the likes of Watch Dogs: Legion and Rainbow Six Quarantine, Ubisoft revealed a new subscription program for PC gamers at E3 this week; UPlay Plus.

Ubisoft already announced a number of its current and upcoming games would be accessible via Stadia, but this new announcement means that in 2020, the publisher will add over 100 PC games to Google's streaming service. For $14.99/month, players will have unlimited access to download more than 100 games, including new releases, the latest released games, back catalog, premium editions and additional content packs. The inclusion of new titles makes this a must buy option for fans of Ubisoft games. If you decide to cancel then you can at any time.

It does seem a bit expensive considering the price of other services. Both services hinge much of their appeal not just on the games, but on all the post-release add-ons being included as well. UPlay+ is the first publicly announced subscription service for Stadia. Electronic Arts charges only $5 per month and $30 per year for Origin Access. For $15 per month, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers the subscription for consoles, PCs, as well as a subscription to Xbox Live Gold.
