Ubisoft Connect (formerly Uplay) refers to Ubisoft's digital distribution platform and accompanying client, while Ubisoft Store refers to the companion storefront accessible through the client.
In October 2020, Ubisoft rebranded the client from Uplay to Ubisoft Connect, and the monthly subscription service from Uplay+ to Ubisoft+.
- DRM: Digital distribution platform with accompanying client required for downloading and often playing games as well. Games can also be DRM-free or contain third-party DRM.
- Latest version can be downloaded here.
Ubisoft+ (formerly Uplay+) is a monthly subscription service from Ubisoft that grants access to a catalog of games and content through the Uplay store.
- Note that playing a more expensive edition of an owned game through Ubisoft+ may render existing save files inaccessible through the owned edition.
- A Ubisoft+ subscription will also grant access to Ubisoft games on Google Stadia and Amazon Luna.
