The lights are on
Some of the copies of Driver: San Francisco include a disappointing surprise: The game's Uplay codes don't work. As it turns out, it's not you. Ubisoft has acknowledged a printing error that affected customers in North America, and they're offering the online pass at no cost worldwide to rectify the situation.
According to Ubisoft, players can redeem the passport in one of two ways. They can select the "Start my 2-day free trial" option from the game's Uplay Passport menu, and that trial will not end. Or, players can select "Purchase Uplay Passport," and download the content at no cost.
Either way, you'll get access to the game's 11 multiplayer modes and the Film Director feature.
If this encourages more people to play the game's excellent multiplayer, this could be one of the best mistakes we've seen in a while.
