Ubisoft is set to unite all of its services into one new platform called Ubisoft Connect, which will allow players to access game saves across various platforms.
Ubisoft Connect will launch on October 29, merging Uplay and Ubisoft Club into one new ecosystem. All new and previous titles will be integrated into the new service, which will offer players the ability to view features such as stats and leaderboards. The previous challenge system which unlocked rewards will be disabled and the company will be gifting every member all previous rewards for free as compensation.
Check out the announcement of Ubisoft Connect below.
Ubisoft Club and Uplay become Ubisoft Connect, a new environment to enhance your Ubisoft experience on October 29, 2020.

The biggest feature for the new system is cross-progression, which will allow saved files to be shared across different systems. This means games saves can be used on any console; an Xbox user could move their save over to PlayStation and continue where they left off.
It’s said to work for select Ubisoft titles and all users will need to do is link their Ubisoft account to the system to carry over their save data. Hyper Scape, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Immortals: Fenyx Rising and Riders Republic have all been confirmed to utilise the feature so far.

Numerous other perks will also be enabled for Ubisoft Connect members. A Ubisoft Connect Loyalty Program will present users with a level, which can be ranked up as experience is earned through playing the company’s titles. Units are awarded throughout the levels, which can be exchanged for in-game rewards. Previous Ubisoft Club points and experience will carry over into the new service.
All currently live games and upcoming titles will be included, however, older games will be exempt from the new system with all previously available rewards unlocked free. The full list of titles that will not change over into Ubisoft Connect can be found here.
The company has also recently shared new details about their upcoming titles. Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla had its full post-launch plans laid out, whilst Watch Dogs: Legion was revealed to be re-working the campaign to include Aiden Pearce.
