If you purchased Driver San Francisco this weekend and tried to play online – and couldn’t. Then you were one of the few affected. Read the below press release for what to do and what Ubisoft’s done to correct this for everyone (Hint: Uplay Passport offered for free – doesn’t require a new copy).
Due to a printing error on the insert of some copies of Driver: San Francisco Ubisoft has elected to provide the Uplay Passport content for free for all users. When players begin DRIVER: San Francisco they are prompted with the Uplay Passport menu. The menu has 4 options: “Purchase Uplay PASSPORT,” “Activate my Uplay PASSPORT,” “Start my 2-Day Free Trial,” or “Remind Me Later” There are two ways to access these 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 either Microsoft Xbox 360 or Sony PlayStation 3 versions.
