News Byte: Ubisoft Drops Online Passes


In response to consumer feedback, Ubisoft has decided to drop the online pass program from all of its future games, and is giving out free passes to those that want them for Assassin’s Creed IV:Black Flag. This is a surprising, albeit understandable, turn of events considering ACIV’s recent release and all the fan and press blow-back for an online-only feature that made the game easier for those that had it. This end to Ubisoft’s online pass program may mark the end of the online pass concept as a whole, something that many gamers are all too happy to see fade into gaming history.
