The classic card game UNO makes its Xbox One debut in August

Ubisoft will release a new digital version of the classic card game UNO this August for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Pricing was not announced.

Ubisoft's blog post states (opens in new tab):

In addition to the traditional matching game, Uno includes online functionality that allows players to drop in and out of games, as well as communicate via voice and video chat. Weekly and global online leaderboards will also be available for those of you looking to see how you stack up against other Uno players. And if you're completely unfamiliar with Uno, don't worry. This version of the game has tutorials, in-game tips, and an overview of the rules to get you up to speed quickly.

Xbox 360 owners may remember that Microsoft developed and published a version of UNO for the console back in 2006 as an Xbox Live Arcade game. It later became the first such game to exceed 1 million downloads.

Update

The release date was pushed back from August 9 to August 16.

  • Nice! Definitely will be downloading.
  • Love me some UNO.
  • Yeah, I love this card game!
  • I still play this now on windows mobile. So addictive. The voice and video chat would be welcome.
  • Voice chat feature is already confirmed, video's not.
  • game of the year. I am about to cry.
  • If they are going to the trouble to do this for PC and Xbox One, why not make it UWP so it can be on HoloLens and Windows Mobile, and everything else Windows 10? Epic fail in my book at this point. I'm not going to buy an Xbox to play games on when I have a perfectly good laptop, and it would be nice to play this on the go with my W10M. Sure, there is an Uno version for Windows Phone, but I can't stand it. Poorly done. I've got it for my old Windows Mobile 5 device, and the version on that one was done somewhat well. Wish I could get it ported to Windows 10 Mobile.
  • This. Gameloft's Uno & Friends works on both my phone and PC and tablet and syncs progress between them. Why wouldn't I just play that instead?
