Ubisoft announces some significant changes coming to its Ubisoft+ subscription service, which competes with other giants like Xbox Game Pass.


Ubisoft+ offers new tiers, including Ubisoft+ Premium ($17.99/month) and Ubisoft+ Classics ($7.99/month), providing early access, back catalog, and popular Ubisoft games.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is an early-access release on Ubisoft+ Premium, giving subscribers the opportunity to play it without extra cost.

Ubisoft is working to bring Activision Blizzard games to Ubisoft+ due to their cloud streaming rights, but details will be shared at a later date.

Ubisoft announced new options for those who want to subscribe to Ubisoft+. Ubisoft's overhaul of the service comes alongside Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown's early-access release on Ubisoft+.

Similar to Xbox Game Pass or PlayStation Plus, Ubisoft+ offers subscribers a library of games in exchange for a monthly payment. In an effort to build its subscriber base, Ubisoft+ has featured day-one releases of major games like Assassin's Creed Mirage. However, users have their fair share of complaints regarding the service, such as its high price and lack of variety compared to other services like Game Pass. In response to this, it seems that Ubisoft has some major plans to help improve its subscription service.

Ubisoft announced that Ubisoft+ will offer two new tiers. The first is the Ubisoft+ Premium tier, which combines the previous Ubisoft+ Multi-Acess and PC Access plans. Ubisoft+ Premium will cost users $17.99 a month and will give them day-one releases, select early-access titles, monthly rewards, Ubisoft's back catalog of games, and more. Subscribers will have access to these benefits across PC, Xbox, and Amazon Luna. The second new tier is Ubisoft+ Classics, which will allow PC users to play popular Ubisoft titles like Rainbow Six Siege, Far Cry 6, and more for $7.99 a month. More games will be added to this tier as time goes on, and this plan is included for those who subscribe to PlayStation+ Extra or PlayStation+ Premium. Those who were previously subscribed to Ubisoft+ PC Access can keep their plan at the old price point.

New Tiers Coming to Ubisoft+

Ubisoft+ Premium ($17.99 per month): Access to day-one releases, select early-access titles, monthly rewards, Ubisoft's back catalog of games, and more

Ubisoft+ Classics ($7.99 per month): Access to a catalog of popular Ubisoft games like Rainbow Six Siege, Far Cry 6, and more

Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is the first game to be released as an early-access title on the newly named Ubisoft+ Premium tier. Otherwise, fans would have to buy the game's Deluxe Edition to play it before January 18th, but those who pay $17.99 for a month of Ubisoft+ Premium can play it early at no extra cost. It's not yet clear what future Ubisoft games will be included as day-one or early-access releases on Ubisoft+ Premium, but fans can expect some of the company's more major games to be featured.

Ubisoft also briefly mentioned the Activision Blizzard catalog of games, which is coming to Ubisoft+ eventually. As part of Microsoft's massive $68 billion purchase of Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft was given cloud streaming rights to Activision Blizzard games. Ubisoft explained that they are hard at work on bringing these games to Ubisoft+, but won't have more to share until a later date.

Ubisoft+ is a subscription service that provides access to download and play video games from Ubisoft's library for a monthly fee. Get access to AAA games such as Far Cry, Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's series.
