Some one must have heard my desperate prayers, because Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are now offering each other’s titles on Uplay and Origin. I actually think that this is a really, really awesome thing. Since I was pleasantly surprised with Uplay and prefer it to Origin.

In just two days time every one in the world will be able to purchase Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3 and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction on Origin.

“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.  “Today, Origin is reaching more players than ever before, and these exciting additions from Ubisoft show how committed we are to continually expanding the roster of hit games available and ready for download on Origin.”

And in the lighter side of life, games like Dead Space 3, FIFA Soccer 13, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Mass Effect 3 and The Sims 3 and Crysis 3 is available on Uplay. According to PC Gamer this is all part of expanding third-party support to bring games from many different developers on Ubisoft’s Uplay. The mentioned developers are:

  • Warner Bros. Interactive
  • 1C Company
  • bitComposer Games
  • Bohemia Interactive
  • Encore Software
  • Focus Home Interactive
  • Freebird Games
  • Iceberg Interactive
  • Nordic Games
  • Paradox Interactive
  • Recoil Games
  • Robot Entertainment
  • Telltale Games
  • Torn Banner Studios

It’ll be very interesting to see what happens with these game sales in the future, if more of EA’s games get bought on Uplay or if things stay the same. That being said, Ubisoft titles on more platforms can only be a good thing.
