While both distribution platforms are offering the same games on discounts, they’re doing it quite differently. You can find instances of one game being sold at different prices on both platforms. Fortunately for you, we have done the (not so) hard job of comparing all the sweet deals that you’ll find on these clients. Here’s a rundown of these deals, side by side:
- Assassin’s Creed: Origins – Steam $35.99 vs €35.99 Uplay
- Watch Dogs 2 – Steam $20.39 vs €20
- Far Cry 4 – $11.99 vs €12.00
- The Crew – $8.99 vs €9
- Rainbow Six Siege – Steam $29.99 vs €19.99 Uplay
- For Honor – Steam $19.79 vs €19.80 Uplay
- Steep – $14.99 vs €14.99
- The Division – $14.99 vs €27.00
- South Park: The Fractured But Whole – $23.99 vs €24.00
- Ghost Recon: Wildlands – $19.79 vs €33.00
From a strict conversion standpoint, it seems like going for the Steam deals makes more sense. While historically there’s been some frustration in the player base due to a not-so-strong Steam support in Ubisoft games (You’re gonna need Uplay regardless of your purchase medium), it does seem like the better deal to redeem.
So if you’ve recently been saving up to get that AAA title that you’ve always wanted, now’s the time. With such aggressive prices from both marketplaces, it’s probably the lowest prices will drop, at least until the next major Steam sale.
