In the past, Ubisoft has often been criticized for at least bizarre decisions related to, for example, restrictive anti-piracy security on PCs, game delays in PC versions or shutdowns of popular game servers. In the context of the latter appeared new information coming directly from the French publisher. The servers of many games will be shutting down in September, but access to the DLC will be a side effect.
On September 1, the servers of many popular Ubisoft games will be shut down. However, a side effect, in addition to the lack of access to online features, will also hamper the ability to download and play DLC addons for series like Assassin’s Creed or Far Cry.
on me Ubisoft has a list of more gameswhose servers will be permanently shut down soon. The change will take place on September 1, so in less than two months. In some cases, the PC version servers will only be blocking access to DLC add-ons (including those already purchased), thus not being able to play them. Servers will be down for the following games: Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Revelations, Assassin’s Creed III (2012 premiere), and Liberation HD. The following titles to be filmed are: Driver: San Francisco, Far Cry 3 (first release from 2012), Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (consoles), Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Rayman Legends, Silent Hunter 5, Space Junkies Splinter Cell: The Blacklist and ZombiU. Thus, the list is quite extensive and also includes games that are not outdated at all.

In some cases (AC: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed III, AC: Liberation HD, Driver, Far Cry 3, Prince of Persia, Silent Hunter 5), access and the ability to purchase DLC add-ons will also be disabled. In contrast, for example, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier can be played in single mode, but first it will be necessary to set the console in offline mode. In turn, the PC version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist will have a completely disabled multiplayer mode. It looks like such decisions won’t win over Ubisoft fans anytime soon.
