UBISOFT ARE SET TO CHANGE THE WAY GAME DOWNLOADS WORK
The problem with subscription services like Game Pass and EA Access is that individually they are great value for money, but things start to add up when suddenly you have half a dozen you want to subscribe to.
Video games aren’t quite at the same level as TV yet, but Ubisoft will be the next to launch their service – with Uplay+ due to go live on 3 September you’ll be able to download as many titles as you want once you’re a subscriber, although the service will be available on Stadia too.
As with EA Access it’ll contain a mix of recent and older titles, with next year’s Watch Dogs: Legion and Rainbow Six Quarantine already listed as coming soon.
From the list below you can see that the service includes almost every Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy, and Far Cry game, as well as older franchises like Prince Of Persia, The Settlers, Might & Magic, and Silent Hunter.
They’re not just the standard versions of the games either, with over 40 premium editions included – which is somewhat surprising because it means little or no DLC to buy separately.
Other benefits include getting access to games up to three days ahead of the official launch and automatic enrolment in any betas.
The all-important question of cost has not yet been answered for the UK, but since Europe and the US are €14.99/$14.99 a month we’re going to guess we’ll be £14.99. Although they’ll be a free month’s trial when the service starts.
