In what will certainly change the way Ubisoft games are played and experienced for the near future, Ubisoft has launched “Ubisoft Connect” — a new ecosystem that Ubisoft players can use and enjoy. As an overhaul of UPlay and Ubisoft Club, this new direction will serve as the new universal interface that Ubisoft players can go to avail of in-game services, rewards, and so much more.

Here is an overview of what to expect with Ubisoft Connect from Ubisoft’s press release:
Designed for a new gaming era, one where players expect to be able to play, progress and stay in touch with friends anywhere, Ubisoft Connect lays the foundation that will enable Ubisoft’s games and services to live across platforms and make cross-platform features a standard moving forward*. As part of this commitment, full cross-progression, across all platforms and services, will be available with some of Ubisoft’s most highly anticipated upcoming titles, including Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Riders Republic.
“Next-generation gaming goes beyond technological improvements and better graphics. To us, as a creator and publisher, it is about bringing more fluidity and versatility in the experience to have the freedom to play games on whatever device and with whoever you want,” says Stephanie Perotti, Ubisoft’s Vice-President of Online Services. “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.”
