Ubisoft Connect is the new cross-platform service that Ubisoft offers free of charge. Its main features are cross-platform saves and cross-playing for gamers on different platforms. It also provides a unified gaming rewards system as well as social features and gaming-related feeds and stats.
Does Ubisoft Connect substitute Uplay?
Connect merges the features of Uplay and Ubisoft Club; you can continue playing passing from one platform to another. The service keeps track of your savings and achievements through all of them. It also features a unified rewards system: as you level up, you’ll earn Units that you can use to buy new games or add-ons and perks for the titles you love.
Can you play with your friends?
With this service, Ubisoft adds support for cross-platform multiplayer. This means that you can defy other players on their PCs, for instance, from the comfort of your sofa. You don’t need to be all on the same platform; it’s enough that you all have a Ubisoft Connect account.
For which games and platforms is Connect available?
Ubisoft Connect, in the beginning, works on desktop systems, mobile, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. It later became available on Playstation 5 and game streaming services as NVidia GeForce Now, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia.
What other features are available?
With Connect, you can access statistics about your game style (or your friends’) and suggestions to improve your playing skills; you can also redeem Units to get discounts on the store games. It keeps you up-to-date with all news about your favorite games’ releases and events.
Why it is worth opening an account
First of all, it’s free! You can maintain your gaming progression between different platform sessions, and also buy different games; all the while, you earn Units you can use to get perks and discounts. Besides this, it allows you to enjoy multiplayer games without the limits of being all on the same platform.
