Ubisoft+ begins rolling out on Stadia for players in the US

By - | Views: 16,428

While the selection available to play on Stadia from Ubisoft isn't currently very big, Ubisoft+ has now started rolling out on Stadia and it doesn't need Stadia Pro either.

Interestingly, it integrates directly with the Ubisoft+ subscription itself. This is where you pay Ubisoft a $14.99 monthly fee, and then gain access to a library of their existing games and new games as soon as they're out. Linking your Google and Ubisoft+ accounts together will give you access to certain titles on Stadia now too. However, it's currently locked to the US (same as with Amazon Luna) likely because Ubisoft+ itself is still considered to be in Beta.

Here's all the titles on Stadia that Ubisoft+ will allow you to play:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins (new to Stadia)
  • Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (new to Stadia)
  • Assassin’s Creed Unity (new to Stadia)
  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (cross-progression with PC/console)
  • Far Cry 5
  • Far Cry New Dawn
  • Immortals Fenyx Rising (cross-progression with PC/console)
  • Monopoly
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands (cross-progression with PC)
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (cross-progression with PC)
  • The Crew 2
  • Trials Rising
  • UNO
  • Watch Dogs
  • Watch Dogs 2
  • Watch Dogs: Legion

They mentioned that it will go live properly on December 16 for the US, with more region support in 2021.

In other Stadia related news, it seems the service has been more popular lately. The deal they were running to get a free Premiere Edition bundle with Cyberpunk 2077 has been stopped early, due to "the overwhelmingly positive reception". It was due to run until December 17 but they formally stopped it December 13. There's been a lot of reports of it running well on Stadia too so that's good news for people who picked it up there.

You can play Stadia on Linux on Stadia.com with a Chromium browser.

It looks like things are shaping up nicely for Stadia as a value package. Their library is growing nicely. The Ubisoft integration is great.

On the other hand it's kind of odd and almost sleazy scammy they stopped a promotion because it was too successful. They advertised it being valid until the 17th and that should be honored. Stopping it so people will have to pay instead is pretty low brow.

It's such a shame those native Linux ports will probably never hit the Linux desktop.

But I'm one of the lucky ones, that have a decent connection, so Stadia runs really well for me. Also seeing Games getting cross-platform multiplayer (e.g. Dead by Daylight, Destiny 2) is very welcome, so it's less of a limitation to Stadia then.
I got lucky with the Premiere Edition of Cyberpunk, as the Chromecast Ultra is a great device to not only be used with Stadia. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Youtube, etc... they all can be used to play videos controlled from e.g. your smartphone to be watched on the TV.

I couldn't imagine, how convenient Stadia has become, and I'm really sad, that some games I'd like to play which have EAC aren't even available to GeForce Now. And I like that I can play (at least some) of the Games from my other Game Libraries (Steam, even Epic). Though that's a Windows machine on the backend, it's a nice way to be able to play games on/from a Linux machine, which wouldn't be playable otherwise (except installing Windows ofc).

So currently my order of preference is: Native, Proton, Lutris/Wine, Stadia, GeForce Now. You might think this should cover all needs a gamer could ever have (PC gaming related), but no... I still can't play e.g. Fall Guys (it's not available via GFN). Well, Shadow PC might be the last resort, but I didn't hear good things about their future lately.

So far I don't regret my Stadia Pro subscription.

I hope to have the option to buy them for Linux on Steam.

Google hasn't earned my trust there's zero change I'm buying into another one of their services after the bullshit they are pulling with YouTube & the self-appointed powers to remove individuals privacy.

If anything all the bullshit this 6 months has made me much more interested in GOG. Being even _more_ dependent on the Internet is _not_ a good thing.

Stadia launched in my country a week ago and I'm amazed how well it works! I tested it alongside GeForce Now and it's much more streamlined, and puts noticeably less strain on the CPU.

But I have no way of purchasing the stadia controller (google store not available in my region), not to mention getting it in a promo like some other countries, so I don't think I'll become a subscriber just yet...

On the plus side it motivated me to finally upgrade my home network.
And I bought Borderlands 3 Ultimate for a few pennies (90% discount + $10 coupon) that I can now play even without pro.

I dont want to sound negative or anything, its a serious question :)

How come there is so much attention for stadia, i understand it runs on linux but its not really bringing (native) games to our beloved OS and i personally don't expect any of these aaa publisher to bring their now on stadia working games to linux. So from my point of view its another system like windows or ps4 or xbox.

As i said, its a serious question, maybe i am missing something :)

Buma.

As I personally answered a few times already: it's a service that works and is supported to play games on Linux. So we will cover most major and a few minor updates for it. In the same way we cover all Proton news, and news about GeForce NOW planning to support us too. Everything.

Article updated with the full list of existing and new titles it will work with on Stadia.

So then don't cover WINE, Browser Based Games or any other game that you can play on Linux unless it's native? Why ask why? If you want to promote Linux native gaming, post in place like the forums or reddit or what not about your favorites to raise awareness about'em.

Stadia works on Linux. Uses Linux. You can game with it easily. Gaming On Linux seems fitting. There are sources for just Linux Native gaming, if that's exactly what you're looking for.

I've had a blast on Stadia but I still buy my DRM-FREE Linux native titles on GOG, Humble Bundle and itch.io first and foremost. The coverage of Stadia here has been great and has opened the door for more of my friends to not only game more but switch to Linux permanently for games like D2 that now runs without issue on Linux via Stadia.

Sorry made you upset, it was a question, not an attack.
Wine, proton, dbox etc you run on your system, i see thwt as something diffrent then a streaming service, so that is why i asked, its cool that stadia uses linux, just like its cool the ps4 uses bsd, but it i dont see any of that comming downstream so i wondered if that was the reason. But if the reason is simply that the streaming works out of the box, cool.

As i said a question to understand the reason, nothing more.
