Hello Ubisoft Plus
UPlay Plus has so far been the name of the subscription gaming service from Ubisoft. A proposal that was launched for PC about a year and a half ago with the idea of offering a wide catalog of titles in exchange for a monthly payment.
The service costs 14.99 euros per month and provides the user with the possibility enjoy more than one hundred company titles already published as well as those that will do so in the coming months. Thus, for example, being a subscriber to the service, you can play great Ubi titles and also those that will arrive like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion or Immortals Fenyx Rising.
Well, this service is renamed Ubisoft Plus And although it only means a name change, for the company it is interesting because it will be much more recognizable than the previous one. Something important to compete against Xbox Game Pass and, above all, that those users who are less involved in video games find a brand that they would bet on.
Of course, this was not all that the company had prepared. They also had the surprise of their arrival on the streaming game services of Google and Amazon prepared.
Ubisoft teams up with Google and Amazon
When it comes to making the leap into the world of streaming games, you have two options. Either you create your own platform, which carries a significant risk and quite complex technology development; or you ally yourself with someone who already knows all that.
In the case of Ubisoft they have opted for this second option and the decision is quite correct. We already knew about their arrival on Google Stadia, because they had promised it themselves, but doing it also to Amazon Luna shows that they are going for it. Instead of fighting creating your own technology, an integration like this can be much more interesting.
Those who are already users of Google Stadia and Amazon Luna can play the entire Ubisoft Plus catalog available. Being something also very interesting for these gaming platforms via streaming. Because as we have already mentioned on occasion, in the end it is the games that make you opt for one option or another.
So, Ubisoft will try to be on the maximum number of platforms and thus attract both traditional PC users who want to play from other devices, as well as all those who have never had a computer and have always invested their leisure time in mobile games .
Lastly, Ubisoft has promised that there will be cross-progression between platforms. That means that if you start playing on your PC and want to continue the game through Stadia on your smartphone, you can do so from the exact point where you left off.
When can I play Ubisoft Plus on Stadia and Luna?
For enjoy Ubisoft Plus on both Google Stadia and Amazon Luna you will have to wait until the next day November 10. Until then you will only be able to access as before, through the PC.
It is also important that you know that from that day on, only those users who have been previously chosen by Amazon to test the service will be able to access Ubisoft Play from Amazon Luna. If this is your case, go ahead. And if it is not, then you will have to resort to Google Stadia.
Both platforms will allow access to Ubisoft Plus from its free options (with the limitations that it supposes) and, yes, paying the monthly fee for the Ubi service. Once the beta phase ends, we do not know if we will have to pay for the premium plans of Stadia and Luna or not. But these details we will see.
For the moment, stick with the name change and Ubisoft’s leap into the world of streaming gaming from Google and Amazon. Will it be the true competitor of xCloud and Xbox Game Pass?
