Ubisoft launches signature-based gaming service.
Microsoft has the Xbox Game Pass, EA has Origin Access for PC and EA Access for console. Now, Ubisoft also launches the market with its own service called UPlay Plus.
This is a subscription-based gaming service for PC that gives you access to over 100 games released by Ubisoft for a monthly fee.
UPlay Plus will be released on September 3 this year.

$ 14.99 per month
What you will notice quickly with Uplay Plus is that it costs a little more than the services of your competitors. Ubisoft's service costs $ 14.99 per month, which is much more than Origin Access ($ 4.99) and Xbox Game Pass (9.99). Something that speaks to Ubisoft's advantage is that all DLCs and other downloadable content are included in the price.
In addition, Ubisoft has Google Stage support. It may not be a big surprise – Google has been collaborating with Ubisoft for a long time – among other things, the parties have carried out a project demonstrating that Assassin's Creed Odyssey is running smoothly in the Stadia service.
Collaborate with Google
UPlay Plus is released to Stadia once in 2020, according to Ubisoft. This means that Ubisoft becomes the first third-party publisher to participate in the Stadia service.
There will probably be more; Earlier this week, Google revealed that it will open for third-party services to be deployed at Stadia, which will make the game library considerably larger.
