Ubisoft, developer of popular Assassin’s Creed series and MotoHeroz, has confirmed that its future games on iOS will store save data in the cloud. This means that players can pick a game on any of their iOS devices and access their game right where they left off.
The first game Ubisoft is planning on implementing this new feature in is Ghost Recon: Commander which will be released sometime soon. At first, I made the assumption that Ubisoft would be using iCloud for it’s save data, but the company will offer its own cloud-based storage system that isn’t exclusively for iOS.
iPad users with an iPhone or iPod touch will be particular happy with this news from Ubisoft. As an iPad gamer myself, I often prefer to play games on my iPad but it isn’t always available. So I play many games on my iPhone because it’s with me more. Now, for Ubisoft games at least, I’ll be able to use both devices interchangeably.
