Ashleigh Barty books French Open final place with win over Anisimova
Ms Barty is already guaranteed a minimum of $1.9 million AUD in prize money and if she wins, she will take home $3.7 million. The highest-seeded player in the semifinals is No. 8 Ash Barty , the Australian who will face Anisimova.
Following in the footsteps of EA and Microsoft, Uplay Plus will give players access to Ubisoft's vast range of games for a fixed monthly fee. The subscription also automatically gets you access to early access and beta programs as well. One of the big industry trends this year seems to be the pivot to a subscription model, with many publishers offering an all-you-can-eat buffet of games.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Ubisoft's vice president of platform and product management Brenda Panagrossi said that the company would "like to see the service on other platforms, too, although it has nothing to announce at the moment". You will get access to the beta and early access editions of Ubisoft's upcoming titles such as Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Watch Dogs: Legion before everyone else.
