Ubisoft has formally announced Uplay+. Revealed during the company's recent E3 2019 presentation, the new service is lated to cost $15 a month and will allow completely unlimited access to Ubisoft's catalog of more than 100 games.

According to details featured over on the official Ubisoft website, Uplay+ will allow players to enjoy any games they like out of Ubisoft's catalog, which will notably include all-new releases. Indeed, the teaser image for the service includes games featured during the E3 2019 presentation, including Ghost Recon Breakpoint, The Division 2, and Watch Dogs Legion.

Speaking in a post on the Ubisoft website, Ubisoft VP of Platform and Product Management Brenda Panagrossi spoke about how Uplay+ is meant to be the simplest way for video game fans to access Ubisoft's growing library.

"More players are in the digital ecosystem than ever before, and a digital subscription is one of the easiest ways for players to access content," Panagrossi said. "With Uplay+, players will have unlimited access to our large catalog of games for the first time."

More than just recent releases, Ubisoft Uplay+ reaches deep into the company's catalog, including access to games in the Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia series as well as the original Beyond Good & Evil. Even better, subscribers will automatically gain access to Ubisoft beta and early access demonstrations, and that includes the Ghost Recon Breakpoint beta slated for September 5.

Best of all, Ubisoft will offer a free trial if Uplay+ to all Ubisoft users who sign up for the service between today and August 15. The free trial is slated to run from September 3 through September 30, which is effectively a full month worth of access to Ubisoft games.
