The race to become the “Netflix of games” is on. Microsoft and EA already have their subscription type services in the form of Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC, Origin Access and EA Access. These services seek to offer gamers a buffet package in a monthly or yearly fee and are slowly starting to take off.
Not to get left behind, Ubisoft is now joining the fray with their new Uplay+ service announced at E3 2019. For $14.99/month, players will have unlimited access to download more than 100 games, including new releases, the latest released games, back catalog, premium editions and additional content packs. Uplay+, its new subscription service, will launch on September 3, 2019, for Windows PC
If you’re not willing to spend a dime to try out this new service, well you’re in luck. Players who sign up for Uplay+ between June 10 and August 15 will be able to access a free trial of Uplay+ from September 3 to September 30. Uplay+ will also be available on and the new generation gaming platform, Stadia, in 2020.

- Upcoming Releases: Watch Dogs®: Legion, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon®Breakpoint, Rainbow Six® Quarantine, Gods & Monsters™ and more.
