Ubisoft to ditch Uplay Passport in future games

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Edward

If you have played a Ubisoft game in the past, you’d probably notice the Uplay Passport notification popping up every time you start a game or when you have accomplished something. One of the reasons that Ubisoft implemented the Uplay Passport is to get money from gamers who didn’t buy a new copy of a Ubisoft game. Uplay allows access to online and multiplayer features via a one-time activation code inside new game copies.

“Uplay Passport will not be a part of any future Ubisoft games,” said Ubisoft via its blog.

“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.”

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is a recent game that no longer require the Uplay Passport. Before, you would need the Uplay Passport to use the companion app, Edward’s Fleet, online multiplayer and available bonus content.
