Ubisoft also uses its own platform for their PC games. As with Steam and Origin, you need to download a client (Ubisoft Connect and create a Ubisoft account. Ubisoft Connect is not yet available for the Mac. If your game needs Ubisoft Connect, you can see in the product description under the entry "Delivery".
At Gamesplanet you can activate your purchased game directly into your Ubisoft account. Keys will no longer be delivered. Just click and the game is yours!
Exception: If you should find download files in your user account after buying a Ubisoft game, it is a game that has been on its way for several years. In this case, simply install the game and enter your key (license key) if you are prompted to do so during the installation.
Yes you can! At Gamesplanet you can choose to gift your entire order to another account, or claim it on your own account. After purchase you'll be given the option to make your purchase a Gift Link or you can redeem it on your own Ubisoft account. Find out more details about How Gifting Works or reach out to us if you're still not sure.
