Three Ubisoft Games Now Available On Google Stadia
I would say my hype for Google’s Stadia streaming service is tempered a bit, even though I enjoy Telus Optik’s 1GB service at the house and should be in the perfect position to use it, but at least the launch library is decent-to-good – which is kind of rare if we’re considering this a console-like platform’s launch.
Ubisoft is helping the launch lineup with some variety, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Trials Rising, and Just Dance 2020.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and The Crew 2 will also be joining the ‘launch window’ party at some point, but the real thing I’m interested in is UPlay+ subscription service, which is expected in 2020.
As it sits Stadia has two major issues unrelated to the early quality concerns: the library isn’t that large, and people are reticent to buy games for streaming services. UPlay+ goes a long, long way towards solving both of those problems. It’ll be very interesting to see what the system’s streaming performance is like by the time that service arrives.
Here’s the press release:
