M&M X and the Uplay Services
THE OFFLINE MODE
Can you play to MMX offline with Uplay? Yes!
First thing to know about Uplay is that you don’t have to stay logged to play your favorite games! Only one connection to Uplay is needed the first time you launch the game to activate your game! After that you can download your game from every computer just by logging in to your Uplay account.
No connection will be required to play after the game is installed on your computer. Nevertheless we encourage you to stay connected to benefit from the online services and get the latest updates.
THE NEW DOWNLOAD MANAGER
First, games will be automatically patched when an update is available. You won’t have to launch the game and then close it to trigger the update. For instance, when the next patch of Might & Magic X – Legacy will be available, you will just have to launch Uplay and let the platform automatically download the last update. How convenient is that?
With the new Download manager brought by Uplay PC 4.0 for each of your games where you want them to be installed in your computer! How to do that? Easy!
Important notice: Might & Magic X – Legacy is still in Early Access. This feature will be available at the full release of the game (Early 2014).
