Ubsioft Ditches Physical Game Discs For UK Xbox Collector's Edition Of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion And Far Cry 6

Ubisoft, in a bizarre twist, has decided to not pursue a physical disc option for a selection of their upcoming games in the UK.

What's more interesting is that it only affects one console.

Ubisoft Stop Physical Discs For Collector's Editions

Ubisoft detailed on their website that the Collector's Edition for three of their AAA titles will not receive a physical disc.

These titles include:

Instead, players will receive a digital key to redeem instead. This is only the case for Xbox versions of the game.

PlayStation remains untouched and will keep their physical game discs.

It also seems to only apply to those in the UK, with the North American market unaffected. Ubisoft hasn't said why they've done this but it's a strangely specific audience.

So UK Xbox owners looking to get the Collector's Edition, you won't be able to trade or re-sell your copy if you redeem the game code.
