What you need to know
- Ubisoft may launch a game subscription service at E3 2019.
- It'll probably be called "Ubisoft Pass" and offer different tiers.
- An image leaked on the Ubisoft Store suggesting it's coming soon.
It seems like game subscriptions are becoming an industry standard nowadays. While EA Access gives you a great, but limited selection of classics, Xbox Game Pass takes it one step further by offering recent titles like Just Cause 4. Ubisoft – and possibly Bethesda – want to adopt this model and there have been rumors floating around that both publishers will reveal their own subscription services at E3 2019. While Bethesda's plans are still shrouded in secrecy, it seems like Ubisoft's may have leaked.
According to a report by VG247, a listing for "Ubisoft Pass Premium" was spotted on the Ubisoft Store. Ubisoft Pass may be an EA Access-like service which gives you access to a handful of classics and discounts on new experiences. However, it could also be like Xbox Game Pass which allows you to play all first-party Microsoft games at launch if you're a member. Only time will tell, and we'll have to wait a few weeks to find out.
Because of the "Premium" added to the Ubisoft Pass name, there may be different levels of access. For example, let's say that those who pay the base price can get a discount on future titles. But those who choose to pay even more can get access to newer games with the subscription. All of this is speculation at this point.
As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until we receive confirmation. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see Ubisoft enter the subscription market given the fact that companies like Google, Microsoft, and Sony already offer similar services.
