It is highly uncharacteristic of game publishing giants Ubisoft to be marred with problems during release dates, but with their recent installment of the greatly awaited return of the Driver franchise, Driver: San Francisco was beleaguered with logistical problems on the get go. Ubisoft is now being overwhelmed with a barrage tribulation, particularly on the game’s online codes that seems to have been printed erroneously.
The game was supposed to have unique codes that come with new copies of Driver: San Francisco that were supposed to unlock some extra content such as multiplayer modes and additional cars. However, Ubisoft has announced earlier today they will now scrap the codes for the game entirely and will offer the extra unlockable contents to gamers for free
“Due to a printing error on the insert of some copies of Driver: San Francisco in North America, Ubisoft has elected to provide the Driver Uplay Passport content for free. Although this problem does not affect players outside of North America, we have decided to mirror this offer worldwide in order to be fair to all our players.”
This was Ubisoft’s official statement on their press release. Gamers will have to download the unlock key to get the content. They can do this by easily selecting “Purchase Uplay passport” or “Start my 2-day free trial” from the Uplay menu of the game. Selecting either of the choices will unlock the extra content permanently for your console. The console versions are being shipped today, with the PC version coming out in September 27.
