Ubisoft+ subscription service coming to your Xbox very soon. Ubisoft plus currently the service is only available on pc stadia and amazon luna and it’s 12.99 a month in the UK and it gives access to the entire Ubisoft back catalogue including brand new releases on day one and more importantly all DLC and extras for the game are all included in that 12.99 a month subscription.
Assuming that price is going to stay the same once it comes to Xbox at 12.99 a month if you compare that to Xbox game pass at 7.99 a month it does seem a little bit expensive of course you’re going to get all their aaa so if you’re a fan of far cry or the assassin’s creed or watchdog series then this service is going to be great and like I say all the DLC so for example if you like assassin’s creed all the recent DLC is going to be included in that price when the news first broke of this a lot of people were assuming that it would become part of Xbox game pass a bit like EA play did well that isn’t the case Ubisoft has already confirmed this is going to be a separate subscription model.
That’s not to say it won’t happen in the future I very much doubt it personally because ea play for example has a couple of different tiers the lowest one that gets included with the Xbox game pass allows you to have 10-hour trials and access to some of their older games Ubisoft plus doesn’t run that system it’s just one subscription to everything they don’t offer a lower tier that maybe you could have 10-hour trials so I don’t think the whole system will come over to Xbox game pass anytime soon.
There’s still good news though if you are an Xbox game pass customer rainbow six extraction is still coming to Xbox game pass on day one so it’s great to know that Ubisoft isn’t hiding all of their games under the Ubisoft plus subscription server she’s still gonna have stuff releasing on Xbox game pass. it really does seem that the future of gaming is in these subscription services and it really does seem that we’re not going to get what everyone wants which is one subscription like a Netflix gaming that covers everything you are going to have to pick and choose Xbox game passes unbeatable value it’s absolutely fantastic but if you are a fan of Ubisoft titles this does give you another choice.
The good thing is you can dip in and out of these subscription services now I use a lot of these services for the channel including Ubisoft plus I sort of call it a business expense if you like so if there is a game that I want to play or showcase on the channel I will subscribe for a few months and I use it to my advantage the minute I stop playing that game or I don’t want to showcase anything they’ve got I cancel my subscription and I use it to my advantage and I think that’s the best way to use these services.
Now of course this could be the first move for Microsoft to have some kind of takeover with Ubisoft and own the company and bring everything over to Xbox. I do wonder if this is going to happen in the future but for now, it’s another subscription service that you can choose on your Xbox .
