Redeem a Code on Uplay?

#1 Posted by AlexanderHC (54 posts) -

So, does anyone know if its possible to redeem a retail code (bought digitally) on the Uplay service and download the game from there? Can't find anything about that, other then "passport", which as far as I know is the "online pass" thing.

Any help is appreciated .

as far as i know you cant.. Uplay automatically recognizes the game when its installed and adds it to your Uplay library. Only for games bought in their digital store you will get a download button for the game. Thats what i can make out of their help page anyways. I couldnt find anything for AC3 yesterday either.

Yeah I had my doubts, sadly my code does not redeem on Steam. Time to use the sloooow retail downloader! Thanks a lot for the answer though! :)

Uplay was fast for me though. But yeah, that sucks!

The retail seperate downloader is jumping from 8 mbit/s to 70 mbit/s . I have 100/100, so kinda annoying...

edit: mbit/s is how the downloader display it. Strange, I know :P

Yes, actually you can redeem a code...if it's for a DLC, though I just tried to redeem a code I got ages ago for the Benedict Arnold DLC and it told me it was an old code -.- lmao
