What is Ubisoft Connect?

Ubisoft Connect is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications service developed by Ubisoft to provide an experience similar to the achievements/trophies offered by various other game companies. It is an expansion and rebranding of Ubisoft's previous Uplay service, which was first introduced in 2009, while the Ubisoft Connect rebranding was introduced in 2020. The service is provided across various platforms. Ubisoft Connect is used exclusively by first-party Ubisoft games, and although some third-party ones are sold through the Ubisoft store, they do not use the Ubisoft Connect platform.
