Ubisoft revises its UPlay Plus subscription service with a new name – Ubisoft Plus – and launches integrations with Google Stadia and Amazon’s new Luna service, all included in the same $ 14 cost of 99 per month from November 10

The PC side of UPlay Plus will remain largely the same as since Ubisoft launched the service last year Subscribers will still have access to over 100 Ubisoft titles, including soon-to-be-released games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion and Immortals Fenyx Rising

But it’s the addition of Google Stadia (before the end of the year) and Amazon Luna (in November) that makes Ubisoft More interesting Not only will you be able to access these games through your regular gaming PC. , but you’ll also be able to play it virtually anywhere, thanks to game streaming technology from Stadia and Luna

This is the fulfillment of a promise Ubisoft made over a year ago, when it first announced that Ubisoft Plus (still known as UPlay Plus at the era) would integrate with Google Stadia « With Ubisoft Plus, our vision is to provide more options for our players to access their favorite Ubisoft games, wherever and whenever they want », explains Alexia Brumé, Director partner, subscription at Ubisoft, to The Verge « Ubisoft Plus is only available on PC – we really want to be able to reduce this hardware limitation »

But by adding cloud-based streaming, Ubisoft isn’t just making its games more accessible to gamers who already own gaming PCs As Brumé explains, “it’s an opportunity to expand to new people – we’re going to have people who maybe can’t afford a suitable platform, and who will also be able to enjoy our games [via cloud services] « 

Ubisoft Plus will also be separate from Luna and Stadia’s existing Stadia Pro subscription and Luna Plus channel, meaning that (at least for the beta), that same $ 15 per month will give you access to a wide variety of cloud streaming games from the start (There is also an additional caveat for Luna customers: they will need to have already been selected by Amazon to join the Luna beta test to be able to link their Ubisoft Plus account)

Additionally, Ubisoft promises to have cross-progression for a variety of games offered through Ubisoft Plus – meaning you’ll be able to start playing a game like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on your gaming PC and then pick up where you stopped on your phone or tablet via Stadia or Luna

Game library for Stadia and Luna will be smaller than the 100+ games on the PC side of Ubisoft Plus The company only confirms today that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion and Immortals Fenyx Rising will be part of of those available, but Ubisoft says it will have more titles to announce before the November 10 relaunch

There is still one notable absence in Ubisoft Plus: console support for Xbox or PlayStation systems There is no news of an expansion in this direction today, although Brumé says, « We are not closing any opportunity as to where this will take us, but it’s just that [Stadia and Luna support] is what we’re working on so far « 

That $ 14 price of 99 still makes UPlay Plus one of the more expensive options for game subscriptions: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, for example, costs the same price of $ 14.99 but works on PC. , Xbox consoles, Android devices (via xCloud) and will soon be integrated with EA Play (which typically costs $ 4.99 per month) at no additional cost.In addition, Ubisoft would only commit to offering free support to Stadia and Luna « during all the duration of the beta ”, so it is possible that the price will increase in the future

Ubisoft Plus will relaunch in beta on November 10 for all current UPlay Plus subscribers More details on the Stadia and Luna catalogs will be announced closer to that date
