The Google Stadia streaming service will be adding a lot more games in 2020. At its E3 2019 press event today, publisher Ubisoft announced that its newly revealed game service, Uplay Plus, will be available on Stadia sometime in 2020.
Ubisoft already announced a number of its current and upcoming games would be accessible via Stadia, but this new announcement means that in 2020, the publisher will add over 100 PC games to Google’s streaming service.
What is Uplay Plus?
Uplay Plus is an extension of Ubisoft’s already established Uplay game storefront. It’s similar to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass and Electronic Arts’ Origin Access. Uplay Plus will allow subscribers to play over 100 current and classic games from Ubisoft — along with all of the games’ DLC content — for one monthly fee of $14.99 a month. The subscription service will also let users access upcoming games as soon as they launch, like Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and more in addition to first access to all of Ubisoft’s betas and early access launches.
You can sign up for Uplay Plus’ release on the PC now on the service’s website. If you register for the service before August 15, you will get free access from the launch date of September 3 through September 30.
That means a lot more games to play on Stadia in 2020
The promise of Uplay Plus on Stadia is a huge one for Google’s upcoming service. For the price of just $14.99 a month, Stadia subscribers can add over 100 games that can be played on their big-screen TV, PC desktop or laptop, tablet, and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a smartphones. It will be interesting to see if rival Microsoft will offer its Xbox Game Pass for its upcoming xCloud service as well.
