We announced it to you a few weeks ago, Google decided to close the Stadia cloud gaming service on January 18, 2023. No more service, thus losing all purchases made in this store, but the American giant promised to compensate all purchased items. The French publisher understands this approach but goes even further by offering players the chance to continue their adventures…but right on PC!
Assassin’s Creed ValhallaAnd the far away 6… Many games are available on all platforms but also on Google Stadia. In a few weeks, players will not be able to access their titles using this platform, but Ubisoft has it all planned out! In fact, the French publisher has announced that it will be offering free PC versions of its previously acquired Stadia titles. The titles will be automatically added to Ubisoft Connect, but if you have virtual currency in these games, it will be absolutely necessary to pay them before closing the Google service, otherwise that amount will be forfeited.
As far as your saves are concerned, you don’t have to worry because if you have linked your Ubisoft account with publisher titles, you will find your progress easily because the title has cross progression functionality. If you decide to purchase the title on another medium (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, or Xbox One), you’ll also have the ability to restore your game data. When we see how many hours it takes for the latest title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise to run out, it’s an interesting argument.
Finally, all Ubisoft Stadia customers (owners or subscribers) will receive a free code for one month to use GeForce NOW, another cloud computing service. We will therefore note a very appreciative reaction from the French publisher with multiple possibilities to continue its games, let’s hope that other entities will follow suit!
