Uplay App Unlocks Extras for Wii U Users

December 3, 2012 -

No matter what you think of Uplay (PC gamers know it as a future digital distribution platform and as facilitator of horrible always-on DRM masquerading as something else - particularly for PC gamers), what Ubisoft is trying to do with it on Wii U is interesting because it adds a number of features to its games on the platform. Polygon has compiled a pretty extensive list of what the new Wii U Uplay app adds to Ubisoft's games including extra game modes, achievements, and rewards.

All of these things are unlocked with what Ubisoft calls Uplay points, which you can apparently earn by completing different challenges in a given title.

A list of those actions - along with the corresponding reward or unlock can be found at Polygon. Games supporting Uplay's extras on Wii U includes Assassin's Creed 3, Avengers Battle for Earth, Just Dance 4, Rabbids Land, Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2013, and ZombiU.

Re: Uplay App Unlocks Extras for Wii U Users

Do the 360 and PS3 Ubisoft titles not come with UPlay bonuses?  I've known about the Uplay bonuses since I got Splinter Cell: Conviction, and I've already unlocked just about everything for my Wii U version of Assassin's Creed 3.  I just assumed that every console gets them.

Yeah, I'm a little confused where the news is with this one. This is the same definition Uplay has had for quite some time on the other consoles.
