Ubisoft drops Uplay Passport
Looks like Ubisoft has decided to drop Uplay Passport from any upcoming games.
The program was essentially an online pass, but also offered rewards for completing in-game challenges. A code was included with each new game, but those who bought a title that used Uplay Passport, would have to purchase an extra code.Assassin’s Creed publisher Ubisoft is to drop the Uplay Passport from all future game titles.
“Uplay Passport will not be a part of any future Ubisoft games,” said Ubisoft in a statement. “The Uplay Passport program was initiated as a means of giving customers full access and support for online multiplayer and features, along with exclusive content, bonuses and rewards.
“However, games today are blurring the line between offline and online, between what is single player and what is multiplayer. Based on that and on the feedback we received from you, we recognized that Passport is no longer the best approach for ensuring that all our customers have the best possible experience with all facets of our games.”
Asssassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag also used Uplay Passport, but all online content has now been unlocked and the program is no longer required for it either.
