Ubisoft has formally disclosed the games that will first be available for its upcoming Uplay+ subscription service launching on September 3 for Windows PC. For $19.99 per month, subscribers will have unlimited access to download over 100 games, including classic games and new releases, all with the most up to date premium content packs that are available.
Players who sign up for Uplay+ will have access to a free trial of the service from September 3 to September 30, including access to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint closed beta on September 5. Take a look below for a peek at some of the benefits of the service.
As for the games included at launch, there is no doubt that Ubisoft is leading with their best foot forward. Exclusive only to PC, the 100 titles are looking impressive with some of the most impressive being Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Ultimate Edition, The Division 2 - Ultimate Edition, Far Cry 5 - Gold Edition, Rainbow Six Siege - Ultimate Year Four Edition, Splinter Cell Blacklist - Deluxe Edition Trials Rising - Gold Edition, Watch Dogs 2 - Gold Edition, For Honor - Marching Fire Edition, and South Park: The Fractured but Whole - Gold Edition. Titles that are smaller in a development scale but still of excellent quality like Child of Light and Rayman Legends will also be included.
This will be a fascinating service to see unfold, as there appears to be so much value for an avid player. Certain games like either Child or Light or Rayman Legends could be completed in a relatively short among of time, but something like The Division 2 is akin to a long term MMO with progression and the constant addition of new content, and could be the sole game played for months at a time.
It appears that this service is ideal for players who love games, but are perhaps too busy to commit to only one single game. This service would allow for a little bit of everything and is likely to be a measured recipe for success.
On the other hand, time will tell if the closest competition has anything to say about that. In this case, that would be Xbox Game Pass for PC, currently still in Beta but also touting over 100 high-quality games for a monthly price of $4.99, later to likely rise to $9.99 and also has some great games available.
For now, we can only speculate, but there is likely room for both subscription services in today’s markets depending on which games an individual wants to spend a few months playing without the need to commit to a full purchase.
