If you know about Uplay, then give yourself a tap on the back because you are an OG gamer. So those of you who don’t know about Uplay, let me help you with that. So basically, Ubisoft Connect was earlier known as Uplay, and it was launched in 2009. 

Fast forward to 2020, when Uplay and Ubisoft Club merged and rebranded itself to Ubisoft Connect, so if I have to define it in laymen’s terms, then Ubisoft Connect is more than a digital distribution platform. The rebranding bought new updates and promoted the social aspect of the platform. This means that Ubisoft Connect is also a social media platform where you can connect with friends/players all across the globe, share achievements, track your progress, get rewards, and much more. 

Today, Ubisoft Connect is available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Google Stadia. Lastly, the company is constantly bringing in new updates and features. So this makes it a must-visit for gamers. So now that we know what Ubisoft Connect is, spare some more time to look at

Why Are There No Ubisoft Games On Steam?

Author’s Verdict 

Given their clear dedication to cloud gaming, Ubisoft Connect is a particularly important move for the company. Stadia, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Amazon Luna will all be compatible with Ubisoft Connect.

However, Ubisoft advises that some functionality might not be accessible on all services. Players can sign up for one of the many prospective cloud gaming services to play games on the move, even if they might not have both the PC and console versions of a game.

Speaking of Ubisoft and its games, did you have the chance to take a look at Star Wars: Outlaws, a new game in the works?
