Ubisoft have confirmed that they will be pulling the plug on multiplayer and online support for various of their older games beginning from September 1st of this year. The list of games include various of the older Assassin’s Creed titles, Far Cry 3, Driver: San Francisco and more.
Normally this wouldn’t really be news worthy however something concerning to note is that several of these games have DLC tied directly to online services meaning this will no longer be possible to obtain or use and in the case of Space Junkies it’s an entirely multiplayer focused game so it just won’t be playable anymore. This is a problem as none of these games note on their storefronts about how the games are going to essentially lose features and they are still be sold at full price. So you’re just getting a game with less features and modes for the same cost, sounds like a pretty bad deal to me.
Ubisoft have not commented on this issue yet and it’s unlikely that they actually will so it seems as though some good games are just losing access to important features and some people will be none the wiser. I guess this is just one of the downsides of a digital-focused game library. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
