Ubisoft Scraps Uplay Online Pass For AC4 & Other Games!
Ubisoft was one of the few who have kept their Online Passes till now! They have not long announced that they are removing online passes from Assassins Creed 4 and any future games will not come with it either. They have announced the information from their blog: http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-iv-black-flag-and-uplay-passport/
A lot of folk were complaining about not being able to access Uplay Online pass on AC4 release day, which brought around the latest argument of “Why do online passes exist!” Most developers have dropped their online passes and have moved on and removed them from their games, Ubisoft until now kept theirs. Myself supported the idea of Online Passes, I feel it supports the developers and publishers especially in recent years of a lot of studios are going under. I rather support the game studios I love in any way I can but not all gamers are like myself.
Ubisoft has also said if you have already brought a Uplay Passport for Black Flag, “please contact your regional Ubisoft Support”.
Is this another victory for the masses? It seems so.
