Following in the footsteps of Electronic Art’s online pass system, which requires players to redeem a code in order to access some game features and play online, Ubisoft is set to launch ‘Uplay Passport’.
Uplay Passport will debut in DRIVER San Francisco and is a new program designed to provide players with access to bonus content, exclusive offers, and online multiplayer play. It will also include a bevy of rewards and community features.
In each new copy of a Uplay Passport-enhanced game will be a one-time use registration code that, when redeemed, provides access to Uplay Passport content and features. The code can be found on the insert card inside the game box. Gamers can identify Uplay Passport-enhanced games by looking for the logo on the back of the box.
Uplay Passports will become a regular feature of all major Ubisoft games from this point forth and will cost 800 Microsoft points or £7.99 on PSN for those who rent, borrow or purchase a pre-owned game.
