It’s a Halloween miracle; Ubisoft has dropped their Uplay Passport limiting content in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It was previously used to access multiplayer, but also single player content and came in the form of a redeemable code upon purchase of a new copy. It will now be made available for anyone through a free download. Those that have already bought a Uplay Passport are advised to contact their respective Ubisoft support network.
Even better: Ubisoft has announced that “Uplay Passport will not be a part of any future Ubisoft games.” Furthermore, the company states that as games are blurring lines between what’s online and offline, “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.”
We agree. It’s as simple as that.
