Ubisoft Connect ecosystem to support cross-play and cross-progression, Immortals Fenyx Rising cross-progression confirmed
Ubisoft is looking to make all of its future games supported by cross-play and cross-progression. Ubisoft Connect, the company’s new “ecosystem of players services for all Ubisoft games across all platforms”, will support the functionality.
Here’s a bit of information about Ubisoft Connect:
Ubisoft Connect is the ecosystem of players services for all Ubisoft games across all platforms. It is the unification and improvement of Ubisoft Club, our loyalty program, and Uplay, our Desktop App, across all platforms. It aims at giving the best environment for all players to enjoy their games and connect with each others whatever the device.
All Ubisoft live games and new releases will support Ubisoft Connect services and loyalty program.
On our back catalogue games, you will be able to access Ubisoft Connect services (stats, leaderboard, Smart Intel when applicable), but the challenge system is inactive. As a consequence, we have decided to offer you all the rewards available on these games: you now have more than 1.000 Rewards for free to enjoy!
With cross-play, you’ll be able to connect and play with friends regardless of platform. Cross-progression lets you carry over save data between platforms.
Ubisoft says that “all your game progression is saved within Ubisoft Connect, so you won’t lose a step if you change consoles or switch to PC.” Immortals Fenyx Rising will be among the first round of games to support this.
