UBISOFT CONFIRMS UPLAY PC 4.0 FEATURING INTEGRATION OF VIDEO PLATFORM TWITCH

London, UK – September 19, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft announced the latest PC version of its cross-game, cross-platform service Uplay. Uplay PC 4.0 will be available for all members in October 2013.

Uplay PC 4.0 offers an array of new features in high demand among the PC community. The integration of Twitch, the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers with more than 45 million unique visitors a month, enables members to broadcast their in-game videos and share some of their most memorable gaming achievements with friends. An improved download manager allows for the progressive download of games and auto-patching, meaning that gamers can spend more time playing. And a new social wall keeps members up-to-date on their friends’ activities.

Ubisoft also confirmed that Uplay will be available when Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation 4, Sony’s next-generation computer entertainment system, arrive in stores later this year. Using one unique profile, new and existing Uplay members will be able to seamlessly access the full scope of Uplay services and features on next-generation consoles. Above all, gamers will benefit from the Uplay Win program, which rewards fans for their commitment to Ubisoft’s brands, both in-game and in real life with additional in-game content such as items and accessories, and invitations to consumer and industry events. More than 40 million rewards have been redeemed to date. All of Ubisoft’s next-generation games, including the highly-anticipated Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag TM, Just Dance® 2014, The Crew TM and Watch Dogs TM will integrate Uplay, including Uplay Win.
