Driver: San Francisco Online Passes Scrapped

Printing Error Forces Ubisoft To Offer Free Uplay Passport

Whoops. After Driver: San Francisco's Uplay Passport (an online pass by any other name) caused a huge amount of controversy on the build up to release, numerous players have reported that their bundled codes simply don't work. Ubisoft has now confirmed that this is down to a massive printing error... and in a stroke of what can only be described as wonderful generosity and feverish desperation, they've opted to offer a free Uplay passport to all players. For the time being.

Here are the details direct from Ubisoft themselves:

There are two ways to access [Driver: San Francisco's] online features:

1. Select Start My 2-Day Free Trial, which will not expire, OR

2. Select Purchase Uplay Passport, which will be provided at no charge.

Either option will unlock the 11 multiplayer modes and the Film Director feature on console titles with Uplay Passport.

We'll keep you posted about whether Ubisoft decide to reinstate the Uplay passport payment after another print run, but for now, it's awesome news. However, I daresay that many gamers will feel cheated out of a few quid after buying a new copy specifically for the multiplayer functionality.

Is this for all formats? My code redeemed and downloaded the xxxKB file from the PS Store on my PS3, I do think it is a joke if they make you pay for the feature in the near future even though you bought a Brand new copy for the UPlay online pass
