Ubisoft+ Classics is the fruit of a new partnership between Sony and Ubisoft. PlayStation gamers are already getting access to a bevy of new and retro classic games as part of that hyped revamp, but so much more is on the horizon. The new service will include more than two dozen games bundled into the pricier premium tiers of PS+, as a free value-add.
What games are coming? That’s easy, Ubisoft has already announced a pretty full roster, including the likes of Far Cry, For Hone and South Park among many more. Here’s the full list:
- 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
- Legendary Fishing
- Risk: Urban Assault
- South Park: The Fractured but Whole
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
- Space Junkies
- Star Trek: Bridge Crew
- Starlink: Battle for Atlas
- The Crew
- The Division
- Trackmania Turbo
- Trials Fusion
- Trials of the Blood Dragon Game
- Trials Rising
- Valiant Hearts: The Great War
- Watch Dogs
- Werewolves Within
In a blog post (via Eurogamer), Ubisoft senior vice president of partnerships Chris Early said:
“We’re providing PlayStation players with another way to enjoy Ubisoft games on their consoles. This is just the beginning, as we will ultimately make Ubisoft+ available to PlayStation owners as we continue to build our vision and provide players with more options to access their favorite games, wherever they are.”
Ubisoft+ Classics will launch bundled with the PlayStation Plus Extra or PlayStation Plus Premium subscription tiers on May 24 in Asia (June 2 in Japan), June 13 in North and South America, and June 23 in Europe.
This is all coming as part of the slow-rolling of the coming PS+ revamp. Sony has been working hard to revamp PlayStation Plus as a tired service, due to begin rolling out later this month. The list of new games coming to the tree tiers, is not only massive, but will constantly grow. We can expect new games to be added each month in order to entice more gamers to the blue team. We’re likely to see more deals like this from other publishers as well.
There’s also a big push for retro titles on PS+. Classics like Ape Escape, Syphon Filter and Tekken 2 are just a few of the games already planned for the expanded service.
It hasn’t all been rosy though, as one-half of this deal may sour some gamer’s attitudes toward it. Ubisoft has been trying to bounce back in the eyes of gamers for some time, following numerous controversies at the company involving toxic leadership and abuse.
