    How do I access season pass & DLC that I have bought?
    DLC is unlocked using codes and the unlocking process is handled by the game that you bought the DLC for. When you buy DLC you will receive a code that you should enter in the Game’s menu.

    Some Games will have an option in the settings menu; usually under extras that will state “redeem code” or “enter content code” (the exact wording may be different from game to game).

    Once you have done this the DLC will be available for you to play on any PC that you use your Uplay account on.
