Dear Settlers,

Most of the "The Settlers Online" websites use Ubisoft accounts (formerly known as Uplay) for a very long time already. And now, step by step, we are introducing Ubisoft accounts on all "The Settlers Online" instances, as well as updating the existing implementation to the most recent version. In this thread, you can find answers to some questions that you might have.

One of the benefits of using a Ubisoft account on "The Settlers Online" is that you can use the same credentials on multiple sites, for example, the main "The Settlers Online" page where you have your main account, "The Settlers Online" test server, and a lot of different platforms from Ubisoft.

  1. What are the benefits of using a Ubisoft account?
    Your Ubisoft account offers you a way to authenticate yourself across multiple Ubisoft titles, websites, and platforms. It also improves the security of your profiles in a significant way. For example, you can add a security phone number for potential account recovery, manage trusted devices that can authenticate to your Ubisoft account, or even see your login history!

  2. What changes should I expect after the most recent Ubisoft account integration gets activated?
    In order to play "The Settlers Online", everybody needs to authenticate (i.e. login) first. And while there are different ways to get authenticated, our recommended way is a Ubisoft account. If you already use a Ubisoft account for authentication on The Settlers Online, not much will change for you - you can continue to use the same account to play the game.

  3. How can I register a Ubisoft account?
    You can register a Ubisoft account on The Settlers Online page, or directly here.

  4. How do I authenticate to my Ubisoft Account?
    In order to authenticate your Ubisoft account, you need to use an e-mail address that is used on your Ubisoft account, as well as your Ubisoft account password.

  5. Is the update of Ubisoft accounts integration going to affect the business model of the game?
    "The Settlers Online" will continue to operate as a free to play title. The update of Ubisoft accounts integration can be seen as a long-term strategy of us striving to offer the best quality service to all players.

  6. Does the instance of The Settlers Online already have the newest Ubisoft account integration?
    Yes, you can enjoy the benefits of using the Ubisoft account already. / No, the newest Ubisoft account integration is not available here yet.
