“Next-generation gaming goes beyond technological improvements and better graphics,” says Vice President of Online Services Stephanie Perotti. “To us, as a creator and publisher, it is about bringing more fluidity and versatility to the experience, to have the freedom to play games on whatever device and with whoever you want. Ubisoft Connect is our take on a new seamless experience to not only ease the transition between generations and platforms, but also be the starting point for new services that further contribute to new, more player-centric ways of enjoying games.”
The Ubisoft Connect interface will be integrated seamlessly into Ubisoft games on all platforms, bringing social features, in-game rewards, and challenges and activities all to one place. In addition to all the functionality of Uplay and Ubisoft Club, Ubisoft Connect brings brand-new features like a dedicated newsfeed to check out their friends’ activities and achievements. For those looking for tips on how to improve at Rainbow Six Siege or how to recruit a beekeeper in Watch Dogs: Legion, the new “Smart Intel” feature brings personalized tips and video recommendations based on your current in-game activities. You’ll also be able to access personalized stats and playstyle information so you can monitor your progress or compare with your friends through the new leaderboard system.
To celebrate the launch of Ubisoft Connect, more than 1,000 legacy Ubisoft Club rewards will be unlocked today for free to all players. The Ubisoft Connect experience will launch on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and be available on Xbox Series X | S on November 10 and PlayStation 5 on November 15. The service will also come to Stadia, NVIDIA GeForce Now, and Amazon Luna later this year.
