    Is "Initiates" a Scam?


    Hey, sign up for the "Initiates" program and you can get some extras in the game.

    Does it cost me anything to get these extras?

    Of course it does.

    But if it's not money... what exactly is it?

    In "Borderlands 3" if you registered with "SHIFT" you got fancy keys that would allow you to unlock quality rare gear for your level.

    What it cost you was your privacy.

    You gave Gearbox the right to pillage the data of your XBox AND your PC for pretty much all the information it could get, and then share this information with their "accredited third parties" (also known as people paying them money for your information).

    So maybe if "Unity" had dangled a better carrot, like "Borderlands 3" did I might have not been as quick to question why they want me to sign up for a program that allows me to access the content of a game I've already paid for.

    Just how much are we giving away to Ubisoft when we sign up?

    Did anyone take the time to read some of the T&C?

    :)

    Great create a char tool but i am upset because they don;'t let you save your created char unless you are gold...is fine that they don't let you share but not chance to save is ridiculous. If i would know that i wouldn't waste my time downloading the demo.
