Earlier today Ubisoft announced the new Uplay system that will be supporting Assassin’s Creed 2 and future Ubisoft releases. This feature will allow players to unlock certain items in game based solely upon their actions in game. Our main concern was that the points system would be backed up with the need for money, our concerns it seems were unfounded. A quick look over at the Uplay website not only revealed the achievements and unlocks for Assassin’s Creed 2, but for R.U.S.E and Splinter Cell: Conviction they have revealed their actions and in the process given away something. The prerequisite and rewards are as follows:

Assassin’s Creed 2

Actions:

Welcome to the Animus 2.0 – 10 points

Enter the Animus 2.0

Undertaker – 20 points

Discover the Assassin’s Tomb inside the catacombs under Santa Maria Novella

Bleeding Effect – 30 Points

Complete training and re-enter the Animus

An Old Friend Returns – 40 points

Escape the hideout

Rewards:

Additional Throwing Knives – 20 points

Altair Outfit – 30 points

Uplay Exclusive Map – 40 points

Assassins Creed 2 Theme/Wallpaper – 10 points


Splinter Cell: Conviction


Merchant Market – 10 points

Complete the single player ‘Merchant Street Market’ Mission on any Difficulty

Weapon Upgrade – 20 points

Purchase all 3 upgrades for any 1 weapon

Ready for Anything – 30 points

Purchase all 9 accessories for all uniforms

In the End – 40 points

Complete the last mission of the single player story on any difficulty


R.U.S.E

First Contact – 10 points

Complete the first mission

From Cover to Cover – 20 points

Capture the Italian secondary HQ by moving from cover to cover

Death from Above – 30 points

Complete Operation Market Garden

Veteran – 40 points

Reach the Veteran League

All these actions seem relatively easy and should be unlocked during the course of play, but does give you the added incentive to finish the game for a nice reward. Even better is the ability to store your points and transfer them to a new game.

While the idea of this point system is very interesting there was something given away in the Splinter Cell: Conviction section. The use of the term ‘Single Player’ suggests that Conviction will come with a multiplayer option. While many would expect this, as Splinter Cell has had a multiplayer element since the second game, nothing has been said on the multiplayer side of things for this  game yet. We are currently trying to get hold of Ubisoft to see if we can get more information and will bring it to you as soon as we can.
