  • Uplay will launch in the background and remain minimized so the only thing you need to concern yourself with is furiously clicking to skip those intro movies (amirite?). All you'll see before that will be splash art for your game and any related messages such as installing pre-requisites and cloud sync notifications, just so you're up to date and know what's happening.
  • The Uplay client will only show up once you have finished playing your game and will display the page for the game you just played. Keeping you up to date on your progress.

  • New Active Download menu:
  • It's easier than ever to see the status of your downloads with the new downloads menu which can be found by clicking the icon to the top right hand corner. You'll still have access to the full Download Manager but if you just want to see them at a glance you can do so from anywhere in the client.
  • News Spotlight:
  • Never miss a beat and stay up to date on the latest happenings via our new Spotlight notifications which are displayed after you have finished playing a game. Don't worry, we won't bug you with these and you will only see them once per day.
  • Improved News Feed:
  • We don't want you to be left out of the loop and with our new and improved news feed we aim to keep you informed with the latest and greatest happenings in both the Ubisoft and PC worlds.
  • You can access the news at any time by clicking on the tab at the top of the client.
