Ubisoft's Uplay Now Offers Other Publishers' Games, like EA
Filed under: UPLAY, UBISOFT

Oh how the plot thickens. Apparently EA wants to stick it to Steam so much that they're willing to sell their games on Ubisoft's own PC-gaming client, Uplay, in addition to EA's Origin. These new titles on Uplay include Crysis 3 and even preorders for Sim City.

EA isn't the only publisher who has joined Uplay. Fourteen others have signed on, including Warner Bros. Interactive, Telltale Games, Nordic Games, and Bohemia Interactive.

“Ubisoft is committed to continually improving Uplay and making it the most rewarding set of services available to our customers,” Chris Early, Ubisoft vice president of digital publishing, said in a statement. “Adding excellent titles from EA, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and many other top developers to Uplay shop means that players now have more choice in where and how they purchase games online.”

So if you were upset that you had to play Sim City only on Origin, maybe you'll be happier with Uplay?

I find Uplay to be the sneaky underdog of the whole DRM thing but still its postive that there is a rival to the megalith that is steam

I just find it annoying not be be able to have anything at the same place.

I'm an old time Steam user and installed Origin just recently to try out the Sim City Closed Beta. Origin works ok, but so far I feel Steam is better. I just hope it didn't install additional crap, which, in my experience, things from EA usually do. As a bonus I found an old game I bought years ago online from EA which I never got to work without a crack. Always something I guess...
