How do I join the Ubisoft Playtest Program? Ubisoft has announced a public program to make it easy for you to test upcoming games, but how will it work? What are the Ubisoft Playtest Program rewards?
The Ubisoft Playtest Program has gotten a bit of an overhaul, owing in part to the COVID-19 pandemic. People can’t exactly head to public places to test games. Ubisoft has since created a brand-new system for players to allow people to help them test unreleased titles — and you’ll get rewarded for doing it.
How to join the Ubisoft Playtest Program
Before you get started, you should know that you need to be at least 16 years old to participate in this program. There’s apparently an option for minors between the ages of 3–16 to get involved with this program as long as they have parental consent, but you’ll have to reach out to Ubisoft to get more details.
Thankfully, the requirements are otherwise pretty light. They’re taking gamers of all types! Whether you’re a casual gamer, hardcore gamer, or brand-new to the medium, you’ll be welcome to participate in this program. You don’t need any technical knowledge, either!
Participants will also have to register for a studio that’s near their home. If you’re in an area that doesn’t have an Ubisoft studio nearby, you may be unable to participate in playtests.
How do you sign up for the Ubisoft Playtest Program?
- Log in with your Ubisoft account or create a new account at playtest.ubisoft.com.
- Fill out your profile information. Make sure to include your phone number so Ubisoft can contact you!
- Wait for Ubisoft to reach out about upcoming playtests in your area.
What are the Ubisoft Playtest Program rewards?
Do you get paid for testing Ubisoft games? Judging by what’s said on the Playtest Program’s website, it looks like you could get cash and other items as compensation for spending some time to test out their games.
“Playtesters are rewarded proportionally to the length of the playtest. Rewards include cash, games, and more, depending on the playtest.”
Unfortunately, Ubisoft doesn’t specify what you might be getting or how much of it; you’ll have to make the decision on a case-by-case basis, it seems.
