Ubisoft decided to change their approach about the rewards the players earned via the Ubisoft Club. Beginning with the April next year, all the Ubisoft Club points that you earned over the last 10-ish years will begin to expire. After that, new points that you gain will expire in two years.
Ubisoft club points could be purchased from the uPlay store, but most of the players have been getting them passively, by unlocking achievements during the play of games like those in Assassins Creed and Far Cry franchises. Those points you earned could be spent on in-game items, and if you gather 100 points you could trade them for a 20% discount on games purchased on Ubisoft’s platform.
For an example, if you had 60 Club Units in your account as of March 31, 2017, those are redeemable until March 31, 2019. The Club Units you choose not to redeem will expire on April 1, 2019.
The news about the change was found on Reddit, in a form of an email from the Ubisoft’s customer support. The email says that Ubisoft Club is changing together with Ubisoft’s live games. Those changes are presented in the shift in the policy of usage of Ubisoft points.
If you have been earning points without even realizing it for all these years, you have until the end of the March to spend it all, or else all of them will start disappearing. The points you earned after April the 1st will have a 2-year lifespan. Ubisoft has a website detailing the Club changes, and if you log in, you can see how many points you stand to lose on March 31, 2019.
The changes in the point policy came at the same time as the new rewards, which Ubisoft says will be redeemable with units. We still don’t know what those new rewards will be, but hopefully, they will be good enough to motivate you digging through your backlogs.
