Report – Ubisoft to introduce Uplay Passport with Driver

Thursday, 14th July 2011 21:18 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Ubisoft will implement its own version of the online pass system when Driver: San Francisco is released called Uplay Passport, according to a report on Gamerzines.

Uplay Passport works like other online pass systems by only allowing those who purchase new copies of Ubisoft games to play online multiplayer free of charge.

Players can also purchase a Uplay Passport code from Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Store, but the price has yet to be announced.

Uplay Passport could also make its way into other Ubisoft published titles.

According to a statement given to GZ, AC: Revelation’s lead game designer, Alexandre Breault, said he was “not aware” of the initiative.

Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez told investors back in May 2010 the company was “looking very carefully at what is being done by EA regarding what we call the $10 solution,” stating the firm would “probably follow that line at sometime in the future.”

We’ll send a mail.

    At least you only have to bother putting in the code if you want to access the online portion of the game, otherwise you can ignore it and go straight on through to the single player.

    Right now the kings of online multiplayer gaming on consoles are the uber big titles like Call of Duty and Halo and since they aren’t using the online pass, other games using it mostly end up helping those heavy hitters instead of themselves.
