Try the membership out before you pay, Uplay Plus offers a sweet deal
Everyone’s bringing subscription services and we all love it. Ubisoft’s subscription service Uplay Plus, which allows access to over a hundred games, goes live today. Over 100 games are available for subscribers to play until they have the membership.
The best part about this is for their launch they are offering a free trial. The trial will last till September 30, beginning today ofcourse. So get your free subscription before the period passes away. There is always a catch though, and in this case you do have to provide your credit card. You will be charged for the next month if you don’t cancel the subscription by 30th September.
Ubisoft’s Uplay Plus service competes with the other few subscription services available which offer unlimited access to many big games. Like Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s way of gaining audience, Origin Access is EA’s, Ubisoft brought its own challenger in the field. If the “pay alot for a game and keep it forever” thing is not for you, these subscription services are your best buddies.
Uplay Plus will cost $15 per month once the trial month is over. The pass will provide access to a large catalogue of games. Moreover, it’ll provide early access to upcoming Ubisoft games such as Watch Dogs Legion and Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Most of the games will come with “gold” or premium editions. This will allow you to play the game with all the DLCs and Season Pass content available for them. Now you can show off to your friends who’ve bought the standard versions of the games whereas you are rocking some premium items.
Although the service is great, people have already started to bring the negative points of Uplay Plus. Most of them mainly being how the game catalogue isn’t that huge when compared with services such as Origin Access. We can understand their concern if we look at the fact that most of the titles mentioned have seperate editions, which gives an illusion of “many games”. However, it really isn’t that big a deal, I’d say the more concerning part is the fact that the games are far too big to be played in the time provided by the memberships, and you’ll end up paying more than what the individual games would cost. But that remains a subject of debate. The real concern lies in the price. People are saying that they are charging a bit too much, about $180 an year, for something that isn’t really worth that price.
