We worked with Ubisoft and Carbon Games to create an online tournament for their real time strategy game AirMech Arena. Using a custom interface, players could invite friends to join the competition, create and manage teams, review real time stats, and track the different stages of the tournament. A modified WordPress content-management system allowed for secure and easy updating.
The tournament presented several challenges. We used xbox user ID’s to track players across xbox live, uPlay, game servers and website. This required numerous extra steps to meet Microsoft’s terms of service. Carbon Games developed a custom API based on our specs, which we used to connect to the game server.
Uplay is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications service to provide an experience similar to the achievements/trophies offered by various other game companies.
We designed the website to drive registration to Uplay, and created custom skins for Uplay.
