Ubisoft announced their games as a service platform, UPlay+, at E3. At the time they advertised over 100 games being included but didn’t specify what these were. However, that is no longer the case. Ubisoft recently updated the official UPlay+ website so we can now see everything you’ll get.
As expected both significant upcoming titles will be included. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Watch Dogs Legion may be enough to justify the purchase alone for some. Several recent titles are also being bundled. The Crew 2, Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege, Anno 1800 and Trails Rising to name a few.
There are some surprise inclusions in UPlay+. Older titles like the Rayman trilogy, Prince of Persia and even The Settlers are a part of UPlay+. Perhaps most impressively they’ve managed to feature games I’ve never heard of before. Speed Busters: American Highways, which has what appears to be a knockoff Mini logo, managed to somehow make the cut. There will certainly be an opportunity to play some of Ubisoft’s earlier, niche titles.
A free trial month of UPlay+ will be available when it launches this September. You can put your interest down now and Ubisoft will email you a code when it becomes available. After that, you will have to pay the rather steep fee of $14.99 a month to keep access. To be fair, you do receive all of Ubisoft’s latest titles in their premium editions. This means all DLC and expansion content comes packaged as part of UPlay+.
Currently, this platform will only be available on PC. Sometime next year a Google Stadia supported version is expected. There are currently no announcements regarding a console version of UPlay+. This is despite the fact that competing publisher Electronic Arts does offer EA Access on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
