It appears that Ubisoft could be on the verge of offering some sort of subscription service.
The company doesn't have a pass available at the moment but one's probably coming, with some eagle-eyed fans picking up on a placeholder listing for a "Ubisoft Pass Premium" appearing on the Ubisoft Store over the weekend (via Resetera). There's no other description on there, but there's hardly a need for anything else as the name says it all.
Where video games and their creators are concerned, it could be considered leak season. E3 is just around the corner and all publishers and devs are working feverishly to prepare their presentations for the mega event. It's been near impossible for companies to keep their projects under wraps with E3 approaching in recent years so, while there's no confirmation over it, a Ubisoft subscription service is more likely upon us than not.
The publishers have more than enough games out there to offer a pass, with The Division 2 the latest title released. The likes of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Watch Dogs 3, Skull & Bones, and The Settlers are also set for launch.
If Ubisoft does release a pass, it's likely to offer discounts or a few free games here and there, as well as other privileges. But they'd have to give gamers a very good reason to add another subscription to their list of cash drainers.
As mentioned above, there's not much else to go on as far as details are concerned but some fans have already theorized that the fact that the word "Premium" was used suggests that there could be multiple levels with different benefits on offer.
This doesn't seem far fetched at all but there were no other versions listed in the store so we just have to wait for Ubisoft's confirmation, firstly over whether there will be a service at all.
No price was listed for this either but it's possible that a bit more seeps out prior to E3.
