Ubisoft Uplay PC Launches

Ubisoft announces the launch of their Uplay PC application, which offers the ability to purchase their games via digital distribution along with an integrated chat system. "Uplay PC is a great way for customers to discover Ubisoft's games, connect with their friends and gaming communities, and win achievements and content that's not available anywhere else." said Stephanie Perotti, Worldwide Director for Online Games, Ubisoft. "For PC gamers that are already fans of Ubisoft's titles or have been considering trying some of our classics, this promotion is a great deal, and our way of saying thank you for their support." They are kicking things off with a sale offering 75% off on many titles, and others for just a buck:

Today at Gamescom 2012, Ubisoft officially launched Uplay PC, an application that serves as a digital distribution platform and central point for PC gamers to connect to Uplay's community and consumer-centric services. The video game developer and publisher also kicked off a promotion making select Ubisoft PC titles available through Uplay PC for as little as $1 for a limited time.

Uplay, Ubisoft's online services and distribution platform, now has more than 35 million members and is available across Ubisoft games and across platforms. Uplay PC replaces individual game launchers and lets gamers access all their Uplay-enabled PC games and Uplay services in the same place. Uplay PC also includes new features, including an integrated shop, the direct purchase and download of games, a friends list and chat system that add value to PC players' experience.

To encourage players to download and try Uplay PC, Ubisoft is making PC versions of Driver®: San Francisco, From Dust®, Silent Hunter® 5 and Tom Clancy's® H.A.W.X.® 2 available for $1 for a limited time. Other popular titles -- including Anno 2070T, Assassin's Creed® II, Assassin's Creed® Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed® Revelations, Might & Magic®: Heroes® VI, Tom Clancy's® Splinter Cell Conviction® -- are discounted up to 75%, also for a limited time.

Countdown until Anti DRM Fanatics spam this news story....5....4....3...2....1...

How about just people who don't want another fucking digital platform?

You don't want more deals? Spending less money? Forcing Steam to stay competitive? Just add the game to your Steam game list once it's installed.
We don't need another corp whore trying to take a piece of the pie. Does any of us need that? Any of you guys need that? How about you guys over there--did any of you guys ask for this? No?

Okay then, Nope.

You don't want driver for 1$, suit yourself.
