Assassin’s Creed 4 Fleet Management Locked, Requires Uplay Passport

By   /   3 years ago

Did you plan to borrow a copy of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag from a friend? Hold that thought. You might want to consider if the game would be worth it without getting to manage your fleet of ships since Ubisoft won’t let you do that without a Uplay Passport Code.

The feature has been immensely disliked throughout its life but the developer is still hanging on to it. Those who have played the game would know that you are denied access if you try to add a ship to your fleet without having the aforementioned code.

The obligatory feature also means that you do not get to manage your fleet in the manner that it was advertised i.e. you don’t get to send off ships on automated missions to capture loot and you don’t get to ask for help from your friends to do the same for you in the multiplayer mode.

Most of the gamers are familiar with having to enter the online pass in order to access certain multiplayer features but this one hits slightly under the belt because fleet management is a feature from the singleplayer mode of the game.

Now that is not the worst that a developer could do to the customers, and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is still a very lucrative game, but this policy surely means that Ubisoft expects you to buy your own copy of the game, not rent it.

Furthermore, simply registering as a Uplay user will not do the trick as the Passport is a game specific code which is not reusable and “in instances where your game’s Uplay Passport has already been redeemed (such as if you’ve bought a used copy of a game) you will be able to purchase a new Uplay Passport code online,” reads the Ubisoft website.

Does this matter to you?
