EA and Ubisoft team up for digital distribution

Origin and Uplay gamers will now have more options thanks to a partnership between EA and Ubisoft. The two publishers announced today that they would be sharing their titles on their digital distribution service.

For Origin users it means that popular Ubisoft titles like Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction are available for purchase and download starting today in North America, with Europe and Asia availability beginning on February 22.

“The heart of any valuable gaming service is delivering all the great content that players want, and the addition of Ubisoft’s top PC titles on Origin, as well as EA’s titles to Uplay, is a big win for all of our players,” said Michael Blank, Vice President of Production for Origin at EA.

Uplay users will also benefit from this deal as EA is bringing titles such as Dead Space 3, FIFA Soccer 13, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Mass Effect 3, and The Sims 3 to Ubisoft’s digital service.

“Ubisoft is committed to continually improving Uplay and making it the most rewarding set of services available to our customers,” said Chris Early, vice president of digital publishing at Ubisoft. “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.”

EA isn’t the only publishing company Ubisoft is teaming up with. The long list of publishers’ games that will be available on Uplay include:

  • Warner Bros. Interactive
  • 1C Company
  • bitComposer Games
  • Bohemia Interactive
  • Encore Software
  • Focus Home Interactive
  • Freebird Games
  • Iceberg Interactive
