Ubisoft+ now offers deep integration with Stadia in many other countries, and as subscription support, Rainbow Six: Siege and more are coming to Stadia soon. Last year, Ubisoft increased its full-access subscription to allow gamers to enjoy the developer’s full library of games and DLC on Stadia. More recently, Stadia gained direct integration with Ubisoft+, allowing players to subscribe directly to the application.

Until now, however, the integration was only officially available to players in the United States. As shared on the Stadia Community Blog, the Stadia integration of Ubisoft+ is expanding to more countries: Canada, UK, France, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland.

To celebrate the launch, Ubisoft shared a new bundle of games “coming soon”, which will arrive at Stadia, one of them being Rainbow Six: Siege which will receive a conversion to Stadia.

As confirmed on June 12th during the Ubisoft Forward event, the game will be released at the Stadia later this month, on June 30th. Stadia players will be able to bring their progression from other platforms to Stadia in early 2022, but even better, the game will support cross-play between Stadia, Amazon Luna and PC when it launches on June 30th.

Along with Rainbow Six: Siege, Ubisoft will also bring eight adventure titles, including classics from the Assassin’s Creed series and Far Cry:

  • 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
  • Rayman Legends

With these releases, almost all Assassin’s Creed top-line games will be available on the Stadia, with the exception of just the original and the Ezio-starring trio of games. Meanwhile, it’s interesting that while Far Cry Blood Dragon is being ported to Stadia, Far Cry 3 – which acted as the basis for the Blood Dragon spin-off – isn’t. Meanwhile, Rayman Legends marks Stadia’s debut for the classic franchise.

In short, Ubisoft continues to show its support for Stadia as a platform, no doubt due to the way it puts its games in gamers’ hands without asking them to buy dedicated gaming hardware. This goes hand in hand with Google’s recent move of Stadia to “working with partners looking for an entire gaming solution built on Stadia’s advanced technical infrastructure and platform tools.”
