Ubisoft has revealed that their Ubisoft+ subscription service will soon be launched on Xbox consoles.
Ubisoft+ subscription price
Ubisoft+ is a subscription service that has been available on the PC platform for more than two years. For $14.99 / £12.99 / €14.99 per month, it provides access to a catalog of 100+ Ubisoft games, including brand new games from day one. This is not available on consoles, but Ubisoft has just announced that Ubisoft+ subscription in the future come to Xbox platforms.
It is not known when exactly, in what form. There is already an EA Play subscription from Electronic Arts on the consoles, but it does not contain the “premium” category as on the PC, where new games come on subscription from the first day of the game. On the other hand, Ubisoft does not have a cheaper subscription category than just one, which can be obtained not only on PC but also on streaming services Google Stadium and Amazon Luna.
It will be interesting to see will Ubisoft+ somehow connect to the Xbox and PC Game Pass, as is the case with the cheaper version of the EA Play subscription. Ubisoft gave a small indication that this could happen because of theirs Rainbow Six Extraction arrives on the Xbox and PC Game Pass this month. It will be the first time that one Ubisoft game has been available from day one through someone else’s subscription service.
It could even be said that this is a significant milestone for Microsoft’s subscription service as Ubisoft has become the most significant 3rd party publisher to decide from day one to launch the game via a Game Pass subscription. So far, Square Enix and Warner Bros. have decided on the move. Games, Sega and Paradox Interactive.
