For anyone who has played one of Ubisoft’s games, they have definitely noticed when a performance or trophy is unlocked, they also earn what are called Club Units. Club Units are a form of currency used internally across all Ubisoft games, from Far Cry to Assassin’s Creed, and by purchasing purchases from the Ubisoft store.
Units earned by players so far have always been available, regardless of when they were rewarded, which means that units that have served all the way back in 2009 from playing Assassin’s Creed II can be redeemed to buy a game of armor in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, without having to spend any real money. Coming early in 2019, Ubisoft will change how long the players must use their respective devices.
As of April 1, 2019, Club Units will only be in a player’s digital wallet for up to two years. Thereafter, units disappear from their available resources. When the change goes live on the scheduled date, the first points to end up for players will be rewarded before March 31, 2017. As expected, the oldest points in a player’s wallet will end when they make purchases, making the best chance to prevent devices from being wasted.
Setting a time limit for spending clubs can be seen as a way for Ubisoft to keep players invested in their titles months after they released. With live service games like Rainbow Six Siege, the forthcoming launch of Division 2 and the push to support Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with steady flow of new content for the next few years, Ubisoft sees to make these changes with the long-term investment of players in mind. Those who start to ward off some Ubisoft titles can fall into the trap of forgetting to spend devices on digital goodies they may want, giving a small incentive to return to a respective game.
What’s good to see is Ubisoft coming before the game with its new Club Reward layout. During this time, as the studio calls a transitional period, nobody will see any of his units disappear. Those who have beat lots of devices, either optional or simply neglecting the Ubisoft store, should jump in and download anything in the game weapons or clothes that they want, absent “buy-to-win” purchase options or even get a good one A discount on something from the company’s online store just in time for the holiday.
