Ubisoft Connect

Today I am talking about Ubisoft Connect, which was formerly known as Ubisoft Uplay. As someone who plays a lot of Ubisoft games, this is something I am very familiar with. Look, all the big boys want their own platform these days, but I have to say that Ubisoft Connect feels like one of the more pointless ones out there. Yet, if you like Ubisoft games, especially on PC it is a necessity.

The Program Review

I will start with the good about Ubisoft Connect and that is the various rewards that you can get for your games. I have been playing a ton of Far Cry 6 and thanks to Ubisoft Connect, I have managed to get some cool cosmetic items. It is not just Far Cry 6 they do this with either.

The majority of Ubisoft games I have played over the last couple of years have seen me get stuff thanks to Ubisoft Connect. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals: Fenix Rising, Rainbow Six Siege, and Riders Republic have seen me benefit in some way from Ubisoft Connect. I do find myself checking regularly for what is available so I guess in that regard what they are doing is working.

You can also use Ubisoft Connect as a kind of social platform as well. I know that in the grand scheme of things this is kind of pointless with all the other ways you can communicate with your friends. However, finding friends to play with, sending messages, and so on can all be done with Ubisoft connect.

If you are a console player, connecting your console to Ubisoft Connect is a pretty easy process and I have never found it to interfere on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. However, when it comes to gaming on your PC, Ubisoft Connect has a much more involved role in your gaming.

To start with, Ubisoft Connect can serve as a storefront for Ubisoft games as you would expect. However, even if you were to buy a Ubisoft game on Steam or the Epic Games Store, you would still need to have Ubisoft Connect on your PC to run it! It has a strange DRM that some people have had trouble with over the years.

It is like Ubisoft wants to make their games available on other platforms, but they would much prefer it if you bought it from their storefront. It is a bit of a weird one, I mean why do I need this extra thing on my computer if I bought the game on Steam or the Epic Games Store? I can see why people who only game on a PC may find this a pain to deal with.

Thankfully, I have not had any trouble in the times that I have used Ubisoft Connect, be it launching a game on my PC or getting some kind of bonus on my PlayStation or Xbox. I think for getting bonus items, it is a good service. However, I do not see why it has to be a requirement for PC gamers. At the end of the day, if you like Ubisoft games, you have to get used to using Ubisoft Connect.
