    It looks like a free game giveaway isn't the only promotion that Ubisoft is doing, in order to hype up their Ubisoft Forward event. They're also offering a free weeklong trial of their subscription service, Uplay+, which can be claimed from today, until July 27th. Normally priced at $14.99 a month, Uplay+ has a variety of Ubisoft games, from Assassin's Creed Odyssey, to The Division 2, and over 100 other titles. The service is available on PC, through the Uplay client, where you can peruse the games available, both new and old. So long as you cancel before the 7-day trial is up, you won't have to pay, and if you want to continue using Uplay+, you'll get launch-day access to all the upcoming games that Ubisoft has planned, including Watch Dogs Legion.

    "I want to play Ubisoft games and ONLY Ubisoft games"
    Most of these games are dirt cheap nowadays.

    Too expensive for my tastes. $20 CAD can go a lot further for me in other services.

    Meh. Stay away from this kind of subscription scheme as far as possible. They know you will be unable to play them all.

    Talk about limited appeal. There are a million other options for subscription services, most of which have games from multiple developers/publishers on them. Ubisoft might as well accept that they'll have to get their piece of the pie by joining one of those existing services, because this is just another bad decision for them in a long line of bad decisions.

    Their pricing is awful, given what Xbox Game Pass can get you, but they do have a nice library of games. They're about just as bad as Origin Access, but at least uplay has a better launcher. I'd never pay for it, but it's a nice, easy, legit way to blitze through AC: Odyssey, honestly, which I've been wanting to do for a while.

    I may as well take it. Simply take the free trial and then cancel. I believe your trial will continue until it's expiry date.

    How can Ubisoft charge the same as PS Now and Game pass Ultimate they need to charge maybe $30 a year that is what EA Pass is doing. The only time the Ubisoft Pass will be relevant is when the new A/C game comes out and you can grind and beat the game in a month that is the only value I see out of doing that.

    To anyone that will use this trial, make sure you look for "auto-pay". I can almost guarantee it will have auto-pay enabled automatically, so that when the trial runs out they take your money immediately.

    I've seen this happen with so many "free trials". If they require a credit card or some kind of payment to sign up, it's got auto pay enabled by default. Make sure to disable it!

    They tried to play hardball with Valve, when they couldn't claim a portion of the pc space, but failed.

    They fail in this endeavour- 100%.

    The ones calling the shots at Ubisoft are atrocious, the company had potential, but they will continue on this trajectory as they have terrible leadership.

    This is the future of gaming. Next gen consoles are gonna be all digital. Then you'll only be able to play with a subscription, you cant buy to own games. Of course you will pay extra for AAA games.

    People use GOG to summon the other game launchers. I mean people now need "game launcher" launcher to simplify playing games. Launcherception. For me tho, I usually only use "fitgurl launcher".
