Ubisoft Ends Uplay Passport Program, Makes Assassin’s Creed 4′s Online Features Free

The UbiBlog announced today that they are giving away the Passport for free and canceling the Uplay Passport Program entirely for all future titles.

In Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, “Edward’s Fleet” is an innovative online single player feature that allows players to interact with multiple players on consoles or via the game’s companion app. Every new copy of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag includes the Uplay Passport code needed to unlock this online feature.
