Ubisoft+ to arrive on PlayStation soon; PS Plus Extra/Premium subscribers to get 23 free Ubisoft games starting next month
In an interesting turn of events, Ubisoft has announced that its subscription service, Ubisoft+, will be available on PlayStation soon. The news is quite odd, as the Microsoft-owned Ubisoft+ is yet to make its debut on Xbox despite being announced in earlier this year. However, it could be a while before PlayStation owners will actually be able to fire up Ubisoft+ on their consoles, as no concrete release date was mentioned.
Meanwhile, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to access a handful of games included in the Ubisoft+ Classics category for no extra charge. However, the Ubisoft+ Classics selection will only be accessable to PlayStation Plus Extra or PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers. Rollout will begin in Asia starting on May 24, follwed by North America on June 13 and Europe on June 23.
Most of the titles, however, are quite dated, with the most recent game being Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft says that the library of games will expand from the initial 23 to 50 by the end of 2022. Don't expect to see a whole lot of new games there, though, as it would disincentivize users from buying a separate Ubisoft+ subscription.
