Driver: San Francisco Multiplayer Access To Remain Free Forever

THE BUZZ: Ubisoft has revealed that the waving of its online pass fee is now permanent and worldwide.

Starting with Driver Ubisoft games were supposed to ship with a one time use code to access online features, meaning that second hand buyers would be forced to pay.

However due to some incorrectly printed passports in copies of Driver Ubisoft has been forced to back track on this decision and has decided to wave the pass fee for all copies of the game worldwide. A spokesperson told CVG;

“We wanted to make you aware of an issue with copies of Driver: San Francisco, due to a printing error on the insert of some copies of Driver: San Francisco in North America, Ubisoft has elected to provide the Driver Uplay Passport content for free.”

“Although this problem does not affect players outside of North America, we have decided to mirror this offer to everyone in the world in order to be fair to all our players.”

EGM’s TAKE: It’s good to see that Ubisoft has quickly fixed its error however I don’t believe that going with an online pass feature in the first place was the right move for them.
