Ubisoft+ is now offering deep Stadia integration in many more countries, and in support of the subscription, Rainbow Six: Siege and more are coming soon to Stadia.
Update 6/12: This article has been updated following Ubisoft Forward where a release date and cross-play details were announced.
Last year, Ubisoft expanded its all-access $15/month subscription to let players enjoy the publisher’s full library of games and DLC on Stadia. More recently, Stadia has gained direct integration with Ubisoft+ by allowing players to subscribe from directly within the app.
Up to this point, though, the integration has only been officially available to gamers in the United States. As shared on the Stadia Community Blog, Ubisoft+’s Stadia integration is expanding to Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland.
To celebrate the expanded launch, Ubisoft has shared a new suite of games “coming soon” to Stadia. As spotted in a recent Ubisoft earnings call, Rainbow Six: Siege is indeed getting a Stadia port.
As confirmed on June 12th during the Ubisoft Forward event, the game will launch on Stadia later this month on June 30th. Stadia players will be able to bring their progression from other platforms to the cloud port of Siege in early 2022 but, even better, the game will have support for cross-play between Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC when it launches on June 30th.
Alongside Rainbow Six: Siege, Ubisoft is also bringing eight adventure titles including classics from their Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry series:
Assassin’s Creed III Remastered
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed Rogue
Child of Light
Far Cry Blood Dragon
Far Cry 4
Far Cry Primal
With these releases, almost the entirety of the mainline Assassin’s Creed games will be available on Stadia, with the exceptions of only the original and the trio of games starring Ezio. Meanwhile, it’s interesting that while Far Cry Blood Dragon is getting ported to Stadia, Far Cry 3 — which acted as the foundation for the Blood Dragon spin-off — is not. Meanwhile, Rayman Legends marks the Stadia debut for the classic franchise.
All in all, Ubisoft continues to show their support for Stadia as a platform, no doubt owing to how it puts their games in the hands of players without asking them to purchase dedicated gaming hardware. This goes hand-in-hand with Google’s recent pivoting of Stadia to “work with partners seeking a gaming solution all built on Stadia’s advanced technical infrastructure and platform tools.”
