Ubisoft+ With New Features Will Replace Uplay+

Ubisoft has announced the end of Uplay+. The existing subscription will be replaced by Ubisoft+, which will offer support for new features like cross-platform play and Google Stadia and Amazon Luna services.

Last week, Ubisoft announced the debut of its new gaming platform, which will replace the existing services of the French publisher. The same fate will be metby the Uplay+ subscription, which will be renamed to Ubisoft+ on November 10. The rules of operation will remain the same as before: players will be able to gain access to more than 100 titles released by Ubisoft, including the newly launched productions. These will be available in premium versions (of course digital, i.e. without any material bonuses), and will include Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion and Immortals: Fenyx Rising. All this for $14.99 a month.

The name change will bring with it a handful of novelties, including support for game streaming platforms, for the time being only in beta version in the USA, with Amazon Luna first. Only later (though still this year) will the option to play on Google Stadia appear. In both cases, subscribers will be able to play Ubisoft titles through these platforms at no extra charge. Moreover, Ubisoft will finally allow buyers to continue playing on several devices, as well as to play together on different consoles and PCs.

Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
