Ubisoft announce their Uplay+ subscription lineup

Subs? Not for this Dom.

Because everyone else is doing it and nobody is powerful enough to stop them, Ubisoft are launching their own games subscription service this September 3rd. Uplay+ will cost $15 a month (with UK and EU pricing still unannounced) and get you access to much of the publisher's catalogue (present and past) and most DLC, but slim-to-nonexistent pickings in the way of third party games. Today, they unveiled their full list of 108 games that'll be available at or near the service's launch. You can check it out on the Uplay+ site, or in alphabetical order (thanks, VentureBeat) below.

Probably the biggest perk of the Uplay+ subscription is that it includes almost all DLC. While some boosters and cosmetic goodies will have to be bought separately, it gets you the vast majority of expansions and season passes. Given that Ubisoft games are infamous for their expensive (but frequently large) expansions, that could actually save you money if you're a semi-regular player of a few big games. Getting access to all new For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege characters as released is faintly tempting, but I just don't have the time. I don't think anyone does.

An impressive lineup, although I do notice a few interesting absences. The earlier Might & Magic games don't seem to be included, and neither does most of Ubisoft's DOS and early Windows-era back catalogue. Most of those games are available through other stores like GOG, so it's sad to see them absent here. I also note that the quirky first Far Cry is missing, and they've padded the list a litttle in places. Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Discovery Tour is technically a game by itself, but also part of Odyssey Gold. Cheeky. (Update: Rayman 1 is included in Rayman Forever)

Still, if you're hooked on Ubigames, this could be a decently cheap way to fill your time. Still, variety is the spice of life, says I. Give me weird small stuff any day.

Uplay+ launches on September 3rd, with a month-long free trial available if you sign up for early notification here. It's also headed to Google Stadia sometime in 2020, though that's not really my jam.
