The public perception of Google Stadia hasn’t been the best, but that doesn̵
Some users will start seeing Ubisoft + today with plans to have it available to everyone by December 17th. Unfortunately, the rollout will be limited to the United States at the time of writing. To be clear, not all Ubisoft + games are available on Stadia (at least not yet). Our friends at 9to5Google have already put together a handy list of the 16 games you can play. As more games make the jump to Stadia, your library will automatically expand.
What’s cool is that all the games on Ubisoft + are the deluxe versions that unlock all of the DLC out of the box. You do not have to pay extra for the “gold” version of your favorite title.
As with video and audio, gaming has slowly transitioned to a subscription model over the traditional one-time fee. Sony has its PlayStation Now catalog, Microsoft has Game Pass, and other studios like Electronic Arts have EA Play. But what stands out here is that Ubisoft + is the first subscription to officially make its way to Stadia. And that is not surprising. It seems Ubisoft’s ultimate goal is to bring its titles to as many players and platforms as possible.
Of course, the best thing about Stadia is its availability and seamlessness. With the Stadia controller you can play on your Android phone (coming soon on iOS), Windows and Mac computers, or on your TV via Chromecast at resolutions up to 4K at 60 fps, with HDR and surround sound. All this without ever having to download or install any of the games. And with the addition of Ubisoft + to Stadia, you now have access to even more games than ever before.
All you need is a half-quality internet connection, your Stadia controller and a compatible device.
