Similarly, cross-play will be supported in future multiplayer releases.
On October 29, to coincide with the upcoming launch of Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft will launch Ubisoft Connect, a new ecosystem that will bring all of Uplay and Ubisoft Club together in one single place. Other than that, Ubisoft Connect will also bring with it a few more features that Ubisoft seems to be committing to for the future.
The most crucial of these is cross-platform progression. “Designed for the next generation of gaming and beyond, Ubisoft Connect is just the beginning of Ubisoft’s commitment to making cross-platform features standard in the future,” Ubisoft writes.
Cross-platform progression will be added to future releases, starting with the likes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Riders Republic (upcoming games such as Far Cry 6 and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake aren’t mentioned, so it’s unknown whether they will feature cross-progression as well).
Regardless of whether you’re playing these games on PlayStation or Xbox or PC or Stadia (or Switch, if the game is on it), your progress will be shared across all platforms, as long as your Ubisoft Connect account is linked to the game.
Similarly, cross-platform play will also be supported in most upcoming Ubisoft games with multiplayer.
Ubisoft has mentioned that cross-play and cross-progression will be added in select games, so going forward, whether not these are supported in releases is something we’ll likely find out on a case-by-case basis.
