Ubisoft has announced Ubisoft Connect, a new player service that combines their two existing digital services: Uplay and Ubisoft Club. Players will be able to track their progress in any Ubisoft game while earning exclusive rewards through its loyalty program.
Ubisoft Connect is described as a new “universal interface” and ecosystem of services that will be available on all platforms.
It will work with all Ubisoft games starting with the upcoming Watch Dogs: Legion, which launches on 29 October 2020, the same day as the launch of Ubisoft Connect.
All subsequent Ubisoft live games and new releases will support Ubisoft Connect services and loyalty program. This includes cross-platform features like full cross-progression, cross-platform friends list, and stats, and leaderboards.
Players will be able to track their activity, see which friends are online, and check in on a game’s community. Ubisoft Connect will also provide Smart Intel, which is a feature that delivers gameplay tips and videos based on a player’s game activities.
In addition, there will also be 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. These include digital cosmetics like skins or weapons.
At launch, Ubisoft Connect will unlock 1,000 legacy Ubisoft Club rewards for free to all players. Ubisoft Connect will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S. PS4, PS5, and the Nintendo Switch on 29 October 2020.
