Ubisoft ends Uplay Passport program, makes Assassin’s Creed 4′s online features free
Ubisoft plans to end their Uplay Passport system and will offer one as a free download for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, according to a post today on the Ubisoft blog.
Those who purchase Black Flag but don't have a Uplay Passport will be able to download one free through PlayStation Network and Xbox Live to play the Edward’s Fleet and other multiplayer modes.
Ubisoft communications manager Gary Steinman explained the decision as based in part on player feedback.
"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," Steinman wrote. "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."
