As the Massive Games Lab is once again opening for playtesting, we can as one of the first Ubisoft studios invite playtesters to test a range of Ubisoft projects.
The most important thing is safety. Regular cleaning, physical distancing, and avoiding contact between people: as one of the first Ubisoft studio to open our Games Lab, the Ubisoft Massive Consumer Experience Team has worked hard to ensure that the testing area follow both government recommendations as well as Ubisoft recommendations.
“The Games Lab is in a secluded part of the building, so we minimize the risk of physical contact with other people there,” says Mikkel Colbe Nielsen, Games Lab Coordinator.

By applying these safety measures and precautions, we can offer testers a safe environment to help us test a wide range of Ubisoft projects.
Playtesters are welcomed to the studio one by one and offered face masks and hand sanitizers in the reception. For each test, only eight testers will be on the site, with four in each room to ensure that they are at least two meters apart.
“We will also have plexiglass between the desks, and all communication with the User Researchers and coordinators will be through chat and audio speaker system. And if someone needs assistance, we can remotely access the testers’ computers to help them out,” explains Mikkel.
Lunch is served individually by the different test pods, and as the playtest ends, testers leave just as they arrived – one by one.
“By applying these safety measures and precautions, we can offer testers a safe environment to help us test a wide range of Ubisoft projects, ultimately playing a huge part in the continued development of our games,” says Mikkel.
