Today we’re excited to announce that support for tracking activity on Ubisoft’s Uplay service is now live on the site! We’re labelling this as a beta for now, as there are some limitations that came up during development:
While we can retrieve your games played, and hours played for certain titles (Ubisoft only tracks playtime on a game by game basis it seems, most newer titles support it but many of the older ones don't offer this information), currently we are only able to retrieve the Classic Challenges for each game and not the actual achievements in the Uplay client.
There seems to be some overlap in the Classic Challenges and at first I wasn’t aware these were different from the achievements, in the case of Far Cry 5 for example. So unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about this unless Ubisoft allows viewing of others’ achievements, at the moment the API seems to prevent you from even viewing the list unless you own the game on your account, and they aren’t shown on the Club Ubisoft website either.
Please post in this thread if you experience any issues with the tracking. When linking, make sure use the ID associated with your main Uplay account, it seems Uplay IDs on the PSN/Xbox can have different usernames and for consistency we only use the main one for lookup purposes. Additionally, the leaderboards for Uplay have not gone live yet but will be added in the next few days.
Edit: Leaderboards are up! https://www.exophase.com/uplay/leaderboard/

Last played dates aren't showing yet (games may appear in the wrong order) - this will be fixed later this week. Fixed now.
