Sony announced they will be adding more Assassin's Creed titles to the Ubisoft Plus Classics section of Playstation Plus.
The Ubisoft collection comes with the Premium and Extra tiers of PlayStation Plus, which went live on June 13. The new tier system looks to be Sony's answer to Xbox's highly popular Game Pass. The Extra tier and Premium tier gives players access to a massive catalog of games, including classic games from the past iterations of Playstation, and the PSP and PSP Vita.
With Assassin's Creed: Valhalla already being available on the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium members, Ubisoft looks to continue this trend by implementing these titles into PlayStation Plus:
- The Ezio Collection (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations)
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (Includes Freedom Cry, a standalone expansion)
- Assassin’s Creed Unity
- Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered
The titles will go live on July 19 and are representing the celebration of AC15, a "commemorating of the launch of the first Assassin’s Creed game in November 2007. A month-long celebration of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, AC15 highlights a different game each week, offering unique challenges, games, and prizes for the community. "
Sony is no stranger when it comes to working closely with studios to present PlayStation exclusive content, and their collaboration with Ubisoft could be the beginning of using exclusivity to incentivize purchasing the higher PlayStation Plus Tiers.
