Ubisoft+ to replace Uplay+ and expanding to Amazon and Stadia

Ubisoft’s own subscription service is getting a more boring name and is aiming to go multiplatform by the end of the year.

Following the announcement of its Ubisoft Connect service, Ubisoft is offering a new replacement for Uplay+ called… Ubisoft+.

For the most part, it’s the same subscription service as Uplay+ was but with a different name, but from November 10, it will be going multiplatform.

Initially, the service was only available on PC, but Ubisoft will be expanding it to Amazon Luna, Amazon’s own cloud gaming service, and eventually Stadia.

The Amazon Luna beta will go up on November 10 and any existing Ubisoft+ subscribers who receive an invitation to use it will be able to access Ubisoft games at no extra cost.

Ubisoft, in its official announcement, says that Ubisoft+ will launch on Stadia by the end of the year and you won’t need Stadia Pro to use it, meaning it will work for those who own the free Stadia subscription.

Ubisoft promises that the service on Amazon Luna and Stadia will feature a ‘growing library of premium editions of Ubisoft games’.

That includes upcoming major releases like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Immortals: Fenyx Rising.

The service will also incorporate cross-platform progression, meaning you can start a game on PC and then pick up where you left off on Stadia.

However, Ubisoft says that this will only apply to some games, naming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as one of them.
