Ubisoft have declined to release their three flagship Christmas games on Valve’s Steam service in the UK, although they will be available via Steam in other regions.
“We’ve been in discussions with Valve about Assassin’s Creed Unity but for the time being the game is not available via Steam in the UK,” Ubisoft told PCGamesN. The game will be available by way of Ubisoft’s own Uplay store and other independent digital retailers including Gamersgate and GreenManGaming.
No reason has been given for the Steam omission but it may have something to do with Steam’s pricing. Assassin’s Creed: Unity is available via Uplay and the other stores for £49.99, ten pounds more than the usual top tier price on Steam.
