Uplay Passport/Online Pass Help!

10 posts in this topic

So I bought the game used a few years ago and have never gotten to it until now. The physical game has no online pass card and upon booting the game I have to enter in a pass code. Sadly the online pass has been delisted! Does anyone know of a work around or another solution? I played Driver: You are the Wheelman back in the day and am very nostalgic for this IP, and I would love nothing more than to have this platinum. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

So I did some more digging and found this article from back in 2011: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-09-06-ubisoft-scraps-drivers-online-pass-fee - Apparently using the two day free trial won't expire. I am going to try this tonight and post results. 

 

The Ubisoft website explains:

"When you begin Driver: San Francisco, you are prompted with the Uplay Passport menu. The menu has 4 options: "Purchase Uplay Passport," "Activate my Uplay Passport," "Start my 2-Day Free Trial," or "Remind Me Later".

"There are two ways to access these online features:

"1. Select Start My 2-Day Free Trial, which will not expire, OR

"2. Select Purchase Uplay Passport, which will be provided at no charge.

"Either option will unlock the 11 multiplayer modes and the Film Director feature on console titles with Uplay Passport.

Was your disc copy new or preowned?

You may have to get a brand new sealed disc copy (if you find out that the physical does come with the online pass), or you may have to find someone to gameshare it to you digitally.

Just edited my post above. Fingers crossed! @Potent_Delusions thanks for the reply though. 

 

Thanks for posting this, I’ve got this in my backlog and would have had the same panic about an online pass.

Just download the uplay pass from the store. It's free.

I'm sorry to resume an old thread, can you provide this feedback? I tried the second method but just didn’t work, I’m still afraid of trying the free-trial since are just 48 hours.


Also I can’t find the Uplay Onlien Pass in the PS Store, neither the game. @vegetollo7

@SStefano- the 48 hr trial never expires. Apparently it's been that way since launch because there was a printing issue with the online passes in the physical copies. I can confirm its worked for me for months.

The last time i tried to access the online features it said it couldn't connect because it required a login to Uplay, which was discontinued for that game.

You do not need it. The trial will redeem and not expire.
