Ubisoft Launches Ubisoft Connect, its New Player Ecosystem
Today, Ubisoft announced that its existing ecosystem of player services and loyalty program, Uplay and Ubisoft Club, will be refreshed and expanded as Ubisoft Connect. This new universal interface, through which players from all platforms will now interact with Ubisoft’s in-game services, activities and community, will be releasing from October 29th this year, starting with Watch Dogs: Legion.
Gathering millions of players, Ubisoft Connect is the ideal destination to connect with friends or participate in events and activities. Along with new time-limited and community challenges, the service brings a cross-game loyalty system that lets players earn an uncapped amount of Units to spend on unique rewards, like weapons, outfits and consumables.
This more social and personalized gaming experience also comes with a newsfeed interface gathering friends’ activities and achievements, while a brand-new “Smart Intel” feature brings players dedicated tips and video recommendations based on their game activities. Each player will have access to data on their personal stats and playstyle to keep improving or compare with select groups of friends through an improved leaderboard system.
Ubisoft Connect lays the foundation that will enable Ubisoft’s games and services to live across platforms and make cross-platform features a standard moving forward. As part of this commitment, full cross-progression, across all platforms and services, will be available with some of Ubisoft’s upcoming titles, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Riders Republic.
To celebrate the launch of Ubisoft Connect and its improved loyalty program, more than 1,000 legacy Ubisoft Club rewards are unlocked today, for free, to all players.
