You may remember yesterday an article reporting the difficulties some gamers were experiencing with their Uplay Passport and some single player features. Well Ubisoft have quickly resolved the issue by getting rid of the online pass.
The change comes as Assassin’s Creed fans suffered issues with the Uplay Passport, mainly with the new feature where players can have their friends assist them on mission’s that Edwards fleet undertake. Ubisofts Communication Manager, Gary Steinman said this on the decision:
“The Uplay Passport program was initiated as a means of giving customers full access and support for online multiplayer and features, along with exclusive content, bonuses and rewards,” Steinman wrote. “However, games today are blurring the line between offline and online, between what is ‘single player’ and what is ‘multiplayer.’ Based on that and on the feedback we received from you, we 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.”
Any players who already don’t have the Uplay Passport can download one for free through Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.
According to Ubisofts official blog, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will be the last game to feature the Uplay Passport and all future games will not have the Uplay Passport. This change up and resolution to the problems that players have had has been dealt with pretty quickly by Ubisoft, or at least in my eyes it has.
