UBISOFT® LAUNCHES FIRST UPLAY SERVICES WITH ASSASSIN'S CREED® II
Ubisoft announced today that players of Assassin's Creed II on the PlayStation®3 system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft will be able to use the in-game interface to connect directly to the Uplay beta. Uplay(TM) will also be available for Assassin's Creed II PC at launch.
Uplay is Ubisoft's online destination where gamers are at the center of a connected gaming universe that has been developed around four primary services: Uplay Win, Uplay Help, Uplay Share and Uplay Shop. The Uplay Beta is launching with Uplay Win.
Uplay Win enables players to collect units based on their actions in the games and exchange them for rewards such as exclusive in-game content or digital items. Uplay Win Units can also be gathered cross-platform and are currently available for PlayStation 3 system, Xbox 360 and PC.
In Assassin's Creed II, exclusive in-game content such as an Altair costume and access to the Auditore Family Crypt are among the rewards offered through Uplay Win. For those who don't want to redeem their units right away, they can save them to use on other games such as the upcoming Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction(TM) and many more to come.
Players will also be able to access Uplay Share, Uplay Shop and Uplay Help fromwww.uplay.com.
