The next version of Ubisoft Connect was announced today by the developers, and it will include significant upgrades to its library, socials, video playback options, and other features. This update has been driven by player feedback since the launch of Ubisoft Connect in October 2020.
The latest version of Ubisoft Connect will be an entirely new framework, allowing for a new and refreshing look while also making finding and playing with other players a smooth experience, which was undoubtedly one of the major concerns in the past.
The Ubisoft Connect PC Beta will have integrated streaming capabilities that will allow players to spotlight their friends and see what they are up to. Furthermore, the Ubisoft+ will also be integrated into the game library. This will unite all of your games and subscriptions into one place, providing ease of access.
The UI will also get an overhaul adding new options and a more sophisticated look to the game library. The developers mentioned that they want to drive and pioneer the accessibility of PC gaming apps. They admitted, however, that they are not currently where they would like to be in terms of accessibility and that they are working on it.
Moreover, the Connect Beta will have a built-in feedback system built directly into the app. This will help the players to provide their feedback directly in the app. Charles Huteau, Creative Director for Ubisoft Connect, pointed out that it was the players’ feedback that shaped the new features that will be released with the update. He further emphasized the importance of the players’ feedback by adding that the feedback will help to shape things in the future as well. He said:
The Ubisoft Connect PC Beta version will roll out this summer will the addition of all the aforementioned features. The official announcement trailer provides a sneak peek of the new features coming with the Ubisoft Connect Beta.
