Q: How do I connect my Uplay account to Assassin's Creed® III?
A: The first time the game is launched (Xbox360) and on every launch (PS3) while connected online, the game will ask to connect or register an account with Uplay.
Uplay Account Linking
Multiplayer Uplay Account Linking
If you already have an account, it is really fast to link it to the game. This process only needs to be done once and will give you access to all the Uplay features for Assassin's Creed® III. Simply enter your username and your password and select CONNECT or SUBMIT. Once the connection is successful, you will receive a confirmation message.
Note that it's an optional step on 360 but on PS3 if you don't link a Uplay account you will fall in limited mode in Multiplayer. Click for more information on limited mode.
Q: I don't have a Uplay account, how can I create one?
A: The first time the game is launched (Xbox360) and on every launch (PS3) while connected, the game will ask to connect or register an account with Uplay.
If you don't have an account, you can create one directly in the game through the REGISTER NOW option. You will need to provide a valid username, email and password. The second step will ask you to review and accept the terms and conditions. Once creation is completed, you will receive a confirmation message.
