Sheesh, yet another company trying to become a subscription service.

Who the hell is going to be able to actually afford dozens of subscriptions by the time this nonsense gets balkanized fully?

Corporate greed, sigh. Luckily we'll all be dead in 20-30 years.

My guess is you go in an out of them OR you just keep buying the game in full. You have the OPTION. I like the subs, most games I'm done with well before a month is over so I can see saving some money.

If you get access to the full expensive-as-fuck ultimate editions of some Ubi games then $14.99 is not such a bad deal at all.
Just curious, could you give a couple of examples of these "expensive-as-fuck" games? Not particularly doubting your statement, I am simply ignorant "as-fuck" on the subject. I don't think I've even ever been on Ubi-soft's website.

Sure, dude...

- AssCreed Odyssey Ultimate Edition regular price is $119.99 (yes, it's currently on sale for way less but the regular price is expensive as fuck)
- AssCreed Odyssey Gold Edition regular price is $99.99
- The Division 2 Ultimate Edition regular price is $119.99 and Gold Edition is $99.99
- Ghost Recon Wildlands Ultimate Edition is still $99.99 regular price after all these years it's been out
- Ghost Recon Breakpoint Ultimate Edition is $119.99 regular price (btw, the game is not even out yet but they are already including it in their current sale for "only" $109.99) and the Gold Edition is $99.99
- Watch Dawgz Legion is $119.99 regular price for the Ultimate Edition (well, it's also "only" $109.99 on sale atm) and $99.99 for the Gold Edition

So, we might have noticed a pattern here, right? If you want the "whole" shebang re a Ubishit game then you gotta burp up $120 and even then you only get the "year 1 pass" for GR Breakpoint for example so it's not as "whole" as one might think.
If you want the real "whole" then you will still have to cough up even more monies for the year 2, year 3, year 4, year whateverthefuck passes.

Yeah, expensive as fuck sums it up pretty well if I do say so myself and I do...

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

At least they are doing it the right way, entire catalog. If EA did that too, it would also make more sense. And at that point, maybe someone rotating publishers every couple months, keeping a single sub active, would let you play games you wanted, new release games, and maybe games you'd not normally buy, for only $15 a month.
I could see myself keeping a sub in those conditions.

Orrr... if they finally discover something to live longer, maybe not. Or maybe the singularity happens.

Wouldn't be cheaper to change their name from Ubisoft to Tom Clancy Presents:

Tom Clancy Presents: Assassin's Creed!

I still think they should have called their "service" UPay... Missed opportunity!
 
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!

Good on Ubi for giving this a shot, but I'm not sure it's going to gain a lot of traction.
They do have some seriously good games in their catalogue, and there are a lot of different genres, but so many of those games are well out dated now.

I guess if you had to pick a monthly service to subscribe to, it wouldn't be the worst.

Not really my cup of tea though.

It's the same sub price as Origin Premier but contrary to EA and its steep discounts, Ubishit games are expensive as fuck and take a loooong ass time to drop to similarly deep levels as EA games.

If you get access to the full expensive-as-fuck ultimate editions of some Ubi games then $14.99 is not such a bad deal at all.

I prefer permanently renting games via a purchase over renting them only temporarily via subscription as well though. However, I could definitely see myself signing up here or there for just a month to extensively check out (extended demo) some of the games I don't really want permanently.
