Answer
1. I heard that Ubisoft have stopped charging for the Uplay Passport, is this true?
 
You will automatically be prompted to purchase or enter a Uplay Passport code when starting the game or entering Multiplayer. Gamers currently without a Uplay Passport for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be able to download one for free from Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.

To get your free Passport, select the option to ‘Buy a Uplay Passport’. This will show you the shop listing for the Uplay Passport on PlayStation Store or Xbox Games Store. Proceed to purchase the item, please note that the item is free and you will not be charged.

If you bought the game new and have already redeemed the Uplay Passport code found in the game box, you already have the Passport active on your account. No further action is required.
 
For those who have purchased a Uplay Passport for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, please contact Ubisoft support HERE.

3. How do I activate Uplay Passport?
 
- On the first launch of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, you will be prompted to activate, buy, or play without a Uplay Passport.
 
1. Start by selecting Activate My Uplay Passport
 
Activate my Uplay Passport
 
2. Enter the 12 character (PS3/PS4) or 25 character (Xbox 360/Xbox One) Passport key included with your game in all caps and with dashes. Select Done when finished (Bottom/Right)
 
3. On the following screens, select Continue and accept the Terms of Service. You will then receive the option to download your Passport
 
4. Once complete, you will receive a notification that your Uplay Passport has been activated
 
- Alternately, you can activate your Uplay Passport via the in-game extras menu:

1. Select Extras from the main menu
2. Select Additional Content
3. Press Triangle or Y for Redeem Code
4. Select Prepaid Card Code to enter your Uplay Passport Key in all caps
 
 
4. My Uplay Passport key is invalid. What should I do?
 
Uplay Passport keys are unique and can only be used once.
The most common cause for an invalid key is incorrect user entry.
Start by re-entering your Uplay Passport key in all caps.
If still unsuccessful, start by documenting the FULL error message received.
Next, please scan an image of both your key card as well as the dated receipt. Click the Ask A Question tab above and submit both images along with the FULL error message for further assistance.
 
 
5. My Uplay Passport Key is already in use. What should I do?
 
Uplay Passport keys are unique and can only be used once. If you have already activated your Passport on a different account, you will not be able to activate a second time.
In many cases, you will receive this error message if you have purchased a used copy of Assassin's Creed 3. If you purchased a used copy of the game, you can buy a new code online via the PlayStation network.
If you have purchased your copy of Assassin's Creed new, please click the Ask A Question tab above and submit a digital image of both the key card and dated receipt along with the FULL error message for further assistance.
 
 
6. Will different profiles on the same console need separate Uplay Passport keys?
 
No. After a Uplay Passport is redeemed by a console user, ALL other profiles on the SAME console will be able to access the content.
