Opening the event is the $70 Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, the first game from the firm to cost that much.
Skull & Bones, developed and published by Ubisoft, was considered to be priced competitively before its debut.Last year, a November 2022 release date for Skull was confirmed.
Due to the high cost and the fact that it comes out so close to the holidays, its potential success is diminished. Ubisoft said earlier this year that three unnamed projects were scrapped because of the challenging 2022 holiday season.
Another degree of intricacy is added by the possibility that Frontiers of Pandora will be the studio’s first digital-only release. Digital editions of the game for PS5, PC, and Xbox One X|S are the only formats available on the Ubisoft online store.
As at the time of this writing, certain retailers, including GameStop and Best Buy, did not have the December 7 game listed on their websites.
The video game MustFrontiers will be released exclusively online by Ubisoft. Remedy Entertainment said in May that digital distribution would be the exclusive method of obtaining Alan Wake II, saving customers money.
Downloadable games have outsold retail copies so far, and this is mostly due to their creation by smaller studios as opposed to major publishers. This might have a huge impact on the industry and the demographics of gamers if more big studios adopt this approach.
Because of their expansive nature, Ubisoft’s games typically have huge file sizes. Individuals with unreliable or restricted internet connectivity will feel the biggest impact from a digital distribution model.
If Soul Calibur V and other games are taken down from digital shops in the future, it will be a major loss for the fight to keep video games preserved.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Mirage will retail for $50 when it launches on October 12, 2023. Ubisoft could be planning to try out new pricing tiers for larger and more serious games.Add to favorites
