Steam

Once again, PC players are quids in with both Steam and Ubisoft offering up free titles for a limited time. Players with a Steam account can download indie horror Kholat, while those on the Ubisoft Store can snag a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.

Coming from Polish studio Imgn.Pro, Kholat follows the real-life mystery of nine students who went missing in Russia’s Ural Mountains in 1959. After venturing into the Kholat Syakhl (Dead Mountains), none of the students were seen alive again. Full of atmosphere, suspense, and Sean Bean’s voice, Kholat leans towards a decidedly more supernatural explanation of events. Check out the OnlySP review here and get it free now on Steam until February 4. 

With the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy, Ubisoft took the franchise into the realm of 2D stealth-action set in China, India, and Russia. In Ubisoft’s latest free giveaway, players can jump into the boots of female assassin Shao Jun as she fights to save her homeland from a group calling themselves the Eight Tigers. An apprentice of fan-favourite Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Shao Jun’s story follows on directly from the canon movie Assassin’s Creed Embers, which players should definitely watch ahead of jumping into AC Chronicles: China. Sporting a gorgeous, hand-painted art style and featuring gameplay in the vein of old-school Prince of Persia, AC Chronicles: China is a worthy addition to the AC universe. Get it for free now on the Ubisoft store until February 5.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
