Ubisoft Launches Ubisoft Connect, Serves as New Ecosystem for Ubisoft Players

It won't be long before Ubisoft Connect is launched and replaces Uplay and the Ubisoft Club. Starting with Hyper Scape, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Riders Republic, you'll be able to use your Ubisoft account to keep progress across platforms.

The list of games that won't be making a full shift to Ubisoft Connect includes recent releases like Far Cry 5, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Anno 1800, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Just Dance 2020, The Crew 2, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas, as well as several older installments in the Assassin's Creed series.

In what will certainly change the way Ubisoft games are played and experienced for the near future, Ubisoft has launched "Ubisoft Connect" - a new ecosystem that Ubisoft players can use and enjoy.

Perotti said that in a game like Rainbow Six, for example, there are a set number of achievements that will eventually be completed.

Also included is a points-based rewards service where players can tackle time-limited and community challenges to earn rewards, and then exchange the earned points for exclusive digital goods.

"Therefore, Uplay is now Ubisoft Connect for PC and part of the cross-platform Ubisoft Connect". All accustomed features and more can be accessed through it, including a brand new in-game overlay for selected games. "If you have Uplay installed, you won't even have to download Ubisoft Connect for PC, as it will be rolled out as an update to Uplay".

"It is the unification and improvement of Ubisoft Club, our loyalty program, and Uplay, our Desktop App, across all platforms". It aims at giving the best environment for all players to enjoy their games and connect with each other, whatever the device. With Ubisoft Connect, developers can regularly introduce new challenges for players who might be brushing up against all the challenges in a single title.

Ubisoft has announced Ubisoft Connect, a new player service that combines and expands upon its two existing digital services: Uplay and Ubisoft Club. As several older games won't be making the transition, however, the publisher has chose to unlock over 1,000 Club rewards that will no longer be accessible under the new program.
