Popular game publisher Ubisoft has announced a new revamped rewards system called the “Ubisoft Club.” The system is fairly similar to the company’s previous Uplay service, as “club members” will be able to get discounts, exclusive in-game content and a number of other goodies by joining the “Ubisoft Club.”
Interestingly enough, players can get the benefits by simply playing Ubisoft games like “Assassin’s Creed,” “Far Cry” and “The Crew.” Playing games from the publisher helps the player earn a type of currency called “Units,” which players can use to get discounts and unlock in-game content for their desired title.
GameSpot also pointed out that there doesn’t seem to be any major differences between the “Ubisoft Club” and the publisher’s previous “Uplay” service. Uplay offered similar incentives to members, so the need for a revamp is somewhat questionable. Then again, the “Ubisoft Club” is fairly new, so new details might be revealed in the future.
However, the company released a trailer for the service and though the content could be promising, it still doesn’t show any major differences between the Ubisoft Club and Uplay. Interestingly enough, when trying to make an account for the Ubisoft Club, it’s still called an Uplay account, further confusing matters.
Current offers for Ubisoft Club members include discounts on “Assassin’s Creed 3,” “Far Cry 3,” “The Crew” and other Ubisoft titles. Oddly enough, the discounts waver from the game’s actual price to the discount percentage, which might frustrate some customers.
It’s an interesting time for Ubisoft to announce the new rewards system, especially since the company is planning a high profile release for “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.” It will also be interesting to see if the Ubisoft Club has any exclusive content for “Syndicate,” or any other future games.
Fans of Ubisoft may want to sign up for the program, while others should probably wait and see what other deals the publisher will announce for customers. It seems like the membership works for customers with any platforms, since some of the games on sale are a bit old and for last-gen consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360.
