It was announced earlier this year that Ubisoft Plus would be coming to Xbox at some point, but we've had a twist in the tale today, as it's also been announced for PlayStation, with part of it bundled as part of the new PS Plus service.
The details on the subscription part of Ubi+ are still under wraps for now, but Ubisoft also says that 27 games will be included in the new version of PS Plus at launch (for higher-priced tiers), and that will grow to 50 by the end of 2022.
The games being added to PS Plus are part of what Ubisoft is calling a "Classics" collection, so they're technically the older games in the library, meaning newer titles will presumably be reserved for the main Ubisoft+ subscription.
Nevertheless, today's news is definitely a blow if you're a Game Pass subscriber, unless we get some kind of announcement on the Xbox side soon as well. All we know at the moment is that a paid Ubisoft Plus service is heading to Xbox eventually, and both Assassin's Creed Origins and For Honor: Marching Fire Edition are coming to Game Pass in the near future... but that doesn't seem quite as exciting anymore considering PS Plus is getting Valhalla.
Here's the full list of Ubisoft+ Classics heading to PlayStation Plus on day one:
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- For Honor
- The Crew 2
- Child of Light
- Eagle Flight
- Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
- Far Cry 3 Remaster
- Far Cry 4
