During its official conference today, Ubisoft announced its new game subscription service, which will be known as Uplay+. The new subscription service is similar to that of EA’s Origin Access, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, and more recently, Google’s Stadia cloud gaming platform.
According to Ubisoft, Uplay+ will give subscribers access to more than 100 currently existing titles, such as all available Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry titles. In addition, the service will also give subscribers “earliest available access” to the latest titles, such as the recently announced Watch Dogs: Legion and Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
To sweeten the pot even further, a subscription to Uplay+ will also give players access to all available for DLCs and expansions of each related titles. Uplay+ is set to launch on 3 September this year, and the subscription fee will be US$14.99 (~RM62) per month, which some might argue is a bit on the steep side. That said, if you’re already paying the Netflix monthly fee, we don’t think this would be too much of an issue.
If you want to get in on the action early, though, you can pre-register for a free trial via Uplay until 15 August. On that note, the trial period will last from 3 September until 30 September, after which Ubisoft will automatically bill your card for the service in the following month.
