Ubisoft giving Stadia players free PC games

... on Ubisoft Connect.

Ubisoft will provide its Google Stadia players with free PC games on Ubisoft Connect as a result of Google’s service being shut down in January 2023.

“Whether you own Ubisoft games through Stadia or want to continue cloud gaming with Ubisoft+ Multi-Access, Ubisoft will help ease the transition to other platforms – and on games that feature cross-progression through Ubisoft Connect, such as Far Cry 6 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off on Stadia,” Ubisoft said.

First, players will receive Ubisoft Connect versions of the Stadia games they own at “no extra cost”, though “any virtual currency you have in your games won’t transfer from Stadia to Ubisoft Connect or any other platform”.

Next, those who subscribed to Ubisoft + Multi-Access on Stadia will receive an email containing details of one free month of Ubisoft+. All Stadia customers will also recieve a free month of NVidia GeForce NOW.
