Ubisoft releases new companion Uplay app for Windows Phone

WP Central

Fans of game developers Ubisoft, who are known for Assassin’s Creed, Fitness Evolved, Just Dance and many other popular titles on Xbox 360, will be pleased to check out their new companion app simply called Uplay.

If you use Ubisoft’s games, you probably already know what Uplay is for but for those who don’t, it's is their system to provide a “wide range of exclusive services and free content" to their customers.  Basically you create an account and they give you “points” for purchasing things, keeping track of new games, getting extra weapons or features for your games, etc.

We were already registered since we use Fitness Evolved for Xbox Kinect and use their other companion app, Your Shape. Heck, we just had a birthday recently and Ubisoft sent us a $10 coupon for any of their games, so yeah there are some benefits.  Here’s the feature list:

  • UPLAY WIN - Uplay Win helps you… win! It lets you expand your enjoyment of the games you play by redeeming great free content like extra weapons, new characters or additional maps.
  • UPLAY GAMES - When the going gets tough, the tough get Uplay! The Games section gives you guidance and tips to enjoy Ubisoft games at their best.
  • UPLAY PROFILE - Manage your Uplay Profile. View your Games, Actions, Rewards, Unit Balance and more!
  • UPLAY SHOP - Enjoy Ubisoft’s best games on your device! Uplay Shop brings together all Ubisoft mobile content into one view, readily available for you to download.
  • Uplay Friends (coming soon…) - The ultimate realm to connect with your Uplay Friends. Share your own content, keep track of your friends’ activity and taunt them with your most impressive deeds!

The app itself is well laid out and gives you access to some cool features. You can already do all of it at a PC through the web ( but it’s kind of neat having a dedicated app for your Windows Phone. And heck, it is free, so why not.

Pick up Uplay for Windows Phone here in the Marketplace. Thanks, Avid A., for the heads up

That's pretty cool - I've used Uplay to get extra content for the Assassin's Creed games on Xbox, and Prince of Persia (TFS) on PC. I've only just noticed they have "Uplay PC" software too.

Totally agree. I spam the hell out them on twitter and the official forums on Bunch of people requesting it, yet still nothing. Good thing my subscription with them is almost up.

@Daniel slight correction - it's not just for games on Xbox 360 as the article seems to indicate... but also for PC, PS3, Onlive, Mac, iPhone, iPad and even some Facebook games.
Hopefully we'll see some WP7 games with it... I wonder if the WP7 Assassin's Creed uses them?

Shame it doesn't fair to well with the UKs ultra crappy 3G network. Works a treat on WiFi at home. Thanks for the 10 points!
