Ubisoft has decided to follow in the footsteps of Microsoft, EA and others by throwing its hat into the game subscription service business with its $14.99 a month offering called UPlay+.
The new service from the publisher of franchises like Assassin's Creed, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Far Cry, For Honor and Watch Dogs will give you access to a growing catalogue of more than 100 games from the company. This will include all DLC and premium editions for games. Moreover, new releases from the company, like the newly announced Watch Dogs: Legion and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, will also be available alongside Ubisoft classics like the Prince of Persia games.
The subscription will only be available for PC in the United States and large parts of Europe, and will be available starting September 3. While console owners won't be able to partake in the subscription goodness, Ubisoft did announce its support for Google's newly announced Stadia game streaming platform. The $14.99 fee for UPlay+ will be separate from the $9.99 that Stadia Pro costs.
If you subscribe to the service before August 15, you'll also be entitled to nearly one month of free access, from September 3 to September 30.
