Upgrading Eligible Ubisoft Games from Xbox One to Xbox Series X

QUESTION:

I plan to purchase an Xbox Series X; how can I upgrade my eligible games on Xbox One to the next generation version?

ANSWER:


When upgrading Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Far Cry 6 from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, these eligible games will leverage the Smart Delivery technology Microsoft has developed, which means that you can buy the game once and play that title on wither your Xbox One or your Xbox Series X when the game and console both become available.

In order to complete the upgrade process from the current generation to the next generation console, you must have an Xbox Series X console, a physical or digital version of an eligible game, adequate storage, and a broadband internet connection. The use of broadband internet may incur bandwidth usage fees.

How can I upgrade my digital version of an eligible game from Xbox One to Xbox Series X?
Purchase a digital copy of the eligible game for Xbox through the Microsoft Store and then you’ll be able to download the upgraded title digitally on your Xbox Series X when it becomes available at no additional cost to you. Please note that an internet connection is required to complete this process.

How can I upgrade my physical version of an eligible game from Xbox One to Xbox Series X?
Get a physical copy of the eligible game for Xbox and once the game becomes available for Xbox Series X, you will be able to use your original disc to download the upgraded title digitally for use on your Xbox Series X.

Please note that an internet connection is required to complete this process, and that the disc is required to be in the tray to launch physical copies of the game (for both current generation and next generation consoles).

  • Pre-Order Offers
  • Bonus Content (Example: Season Pass, Ultimate Edition Content)
  • Digital Content Purchased on the Microsoft Store
  • Digital Content Purchased on the In-Game Store
  • Ubisoft Club Rewards

Can I upgrade an eligible Xbox One game to the PlayStation 5?
No. You can only upgrade your Xbox One titles to the Xbox Series X. Xbox One titles cannot be upgraded to be played on the PlayStation 5.

Once an eligible Xbox One game has been upgraded to Xbox Series X, can I play it on Xbox One still?
Yes. If your game is eligible to be upgraded to a next generation console and you go through with the upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, you will still be able to play the game on your Xbox One using your original copy of the game. Note that for physical versions of the game, you’ll need to have the disc inserted in the tray to proceed.

If I lend or resell a physical game I've upgraded, can I still play the upgraded version I installed on my Xbox Series X?
If you lend or resell your physical copy of the Ubisoft title that you’ve upgraded to Xbox Series X, you will not be able to play the game on your Xbox Series X or Xbox One. For physical games to be played, the disc must be inserted into the tray of your console (for current generation or next generation consoles).
