Ubisoft has announced a new platform that it will launch on October 29 called Ubisoft Connect. The new platform, available as an app on PC and mobile, will let you save your progress regardless of which platform you’re playing on. Yes, cross-saves and cross-progression are finally coming to Ubisoft titles!
What is Ubisoft Connect?
Ubisoft describes the platform as following-
Whether you play on PC or console, you’ll be part of a global network of Ubisoft players with access to all the same services. Regular updates will provide you with more ways to interact with an ever-growing community. Find friends on all platforms, see what they’re playing, and check their achievements.
To us, it sounds more like their own 3rd party app which will work similarly to Xbox Game Pass. It will provide one unified platform for console and PC players alike.
As for cross-saves, not all games will get support for it at launch. Ubisoft has said that only Hyper Scape, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Riders Republic will get that feature.
Ubisoft Connect will integrate Ubisoft Club, its loyalty program, and Uplay. As such, you’ll also be able to claim in-game rewards and get discounts on the Ubisoft store for being a member of Ubisoft Connect. Uplay on PC will get updated to the new app soon.
