Ubisoft has entered the digital distribution market on PC with UPlay, a new online store.
Ubisoft has entered the digital distribution market by today launching UPlay PC, a new launcher and digital distribution platform for all it's existing UPlay games.
UPlay, if you're not aware, is Ubisoft's online platform and DRM device. It often requires games to be online in order to play even singleplayer content and has been less than popular with gamers as a result.
The new features of the UPlay PC application include a friends list and chat option, as well as the obvious ability to download and update games.
To help celebrate the launch of UPlay PC, Ubisoft has announced a number of sales for launch period, slashing games such as Driver: San Francisco, From Dust, Silent Hunter 5 and Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 to just £1 for a limited period.
Anno 2070, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Might & Magic: Heroes® VI, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction are all discounted up to 75 per cent as well, if you're interested.
