Happy anniversary!
Happy anniversary! Ubisoft

It was in October 2020 when the Ubisoft Connect service was launched to serve as the one-stop hub for Ubisoft games and players on PC, console, and mobile platforms. This service came out of Uplay and the Ubisoft Club to bring the community together across all games and devices.

In a statement, Ubisoft Connect Creative Director Charles Huteau revealed that their vision, in offering this particular service, was to focus on social interaction and make sure that players get the best experience together, no matter what games they play. He added that a lot of features have been introduced including the ability to share gaming experiences.

“Cross” Features

What’s been offered so far? For one, cross-progression is available on different games. As a result, players can play the games on any device. So far, this feature is available on titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Far Cry 6, and the soon-to-be-released Riders Republic.

A feature coming soon is cross-play, which allows players to play together regardless of devices. It’s going to make its debut on the service on Riders Republic. Cross-play is also arriving in Rainbow Six Siege in 2022.

On the pipeline is the cross-chat feature coming to the Ubisoft Connect mobile app. This lets players keep the conversation going whether they’re using a different platform or playing a different game.

Rewards and Challenges

One of the key features of Ubisoft Connect is the improved loyalty program. It rewards players with Units by simply playing the game. These can then be used on the Ubisoft Store discounts or exclusive in-game items.

There are also the likes of weapons, skins, and outfits, which can be earned by finishing actions in-game. This can also increase the player’s profile experience level allowing them to show off their gaming skills.

Share Play

There is also a new feature coming to Ubisoft Connect for the PC called Share Play. This lets players have a session with friends and take control of the games, with permission, of course. It’s good news for those who want to show off for a bit. It could also help those having a hard time with their games by letting a skilled friend do the job.
