There's a new member of the subscription streaming service race now with Uplay+. Today during Ubisoft's E3 2019 press conference, Ubisoft revealed the new subscription service, which sounds very similar to EA Origin Access and Xbox Game Pass. With Uplay+, subscribers will have access to downloading over 100 games on PC for a monthly subscription fee.
Games such as Beyond Good and Evil, Far Cry 5, Watch Dogs 2, and many more are part of the day one collection. The service will cost $14.99 a month, and will include new releases such as Watch Dogs Legion and Ghost Recon Breakpoint day one, similar to Microsoft's first-party titles on Xbox Game Pass. The service debuts on September 3.
"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," Brenda Panagrossi, VP of platform and product management, says in a blog. "For example, the Ghost Recon Breakpoint Ultimate Edition is a $120 value, and Uplay+ subscribers will have access to it as part of their subscription. If you add up the value of all the premium editions of our new releases over the course of a year, the total value is well above the $14.99 per month price of Uplay+."
That's not all though: if you register for the service before August 15, then players will be able to test out Uplay+ for free during its debut month from September 3 to 30. In 2020, Uplay+ will be playable on Google Stadia too, effectively taking a massive suite of Ubisoft games readily accessible on the go.
