Back in January, Ubisoft announced that its paid subscription service, Ubisoft+, would be coming to Xbox platforms, and promptly afterward said that it had no plans at the time to bring the service to PlayStation as well. It seems those plans have now changed.
Ubisoft has announced that Ubisoft+ will be coming to both Xbox and PlayStation, offering its entire catalog of over 100 games, expansions, and in-game rewards. A launch date or window for the service on the consoles hasn’t yet been announced.
At the same time, Ubisoft has also unveiled Ubisoft+ Classics, a new variant of its service that’s coming to PS5 and PS4. Bundled at no additional cost with PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium, the service will offer “a curated selection of popular games”. At launch, it will offer 27 games, and Ubisoft says that number will expand to 50 by the end of 2022.
And when exactly will Ubisoft+ Classics launched? It’ll be aligned with the launch of the revamped PlayStation Plus, so May 24 in Asia, June 2 in Japan, June 13 in North and South America, and June 23 in Europe.
“With Ubisoft+ Classics, we’re providing PlayStation players with another way to enjoy Ubisoft games on their consoles,” said Chris Early, Ubisoft’s senior vice president of partnerships. “This is just the beginning, as we will ultimately make Ubisoft+ available to PlayStation owners as we continue to build our vision and provide players with more options to access their favorite games, wherever they are.”
