Many people, all over the world are anticipating the release of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. However, there seems to have been a bit of a hiccup for some people. I am one of the many people excited for the game and I am a PC gamer so, naturally, I headed to the Steam store for some details. Well it turns out that the game will not be available on Steam in the UK, with the game still being Steam-ready in the US.
Why is this? Truth is, we don’t really know and Ubisoft refused to give us an actual reason as to why the game will not be available on the PC gamer’s favourite platform.
The developers spoke to PCGamesN:
“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,”
“In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase the game digitally can do so by visiting the Uplay store, out retail partners or other digital distributors.”
So yes, the game will cost (a ridiculous) £50 on Uplay but you can still obtain the game through third-party providers such as Green Man Gaming. Really this all boils down to how important it is to the individual to have a game listed in his or her Steam library. I personally use Steam, Origin (pukes), and Uplay all for different games accordingly and I haven’t had many problems at all. Having said that, Steam is definitely my favourite of the platforms and I am bit cheesed that I won’t be able to buy the game from there.
So, how much does this bother you? Will you still be buying the game? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
