So Much Style It's Criminal
Graphic novel presentation, flashback graphics and pop-up windows create a groundbreaking entry into the genre. XIII marshals the power of Unreal II technology and unique comic-style visuals.

Groundbreaking Gameplay
Experience innovative gameplay based on comic-style effects (e.g. sound of footsteps graphically represented by the words "tap, tap, tap" on the screen to allow you to detect enemies around the corner) as well as a wide variety of more classic gameplay (e.g. cunning use of human shields, silent weapons, handy gadgets, etc.).To survive, you'll master techniques ranging from covert infiltration to heavy combat as you battle sinister conspiratorial forces.

The Ultimate Conspiracy
Unravel a whirlwind conspiracy plot that shrouds your identity, the president's assassination and the future of the United States in mystery.

A Deadly and Original Arsenal of Weapons
Handle a dizzying array of weapons that includes silent crossbows, precision sniper rifles and lethal automatic weapons as well as chairs, bottles, ashtrays and shovels… Every object is a potential weapon!!

The days when hundreds of online matches in XIII per day were taking place are long gone. Since Ubisoft dropped support for the game's online capabilities (2012) and made it impossible to play the game online without at least a little research around unofficial sources, the base of players started declining.

Thanks to the community on the unofficial website called InsideXIII, unofficial infrastructure made it possible to still play between 2012 and 2016. However, since 2017 even InsideXIII website has been down.

It has a fix!

That doesn't mean, however, that it's completely impossible to play XIII online. The only catch is that you need to know the exact IP address of a game session you'd like to join – and there are no longer any actively maintained databses of them anymore. A veteran fan of the game, Opaquit, also an author of the unofficial 1.4 patch from 2005, though, decided to create at least one server that should be running most of the time so that players who stumble upon XIII in 2018 and in the future have something to rely on.

Here's how to connect to that server (or any other game server if you know its particular IP).

1) Make sure you have XIII up and running

These days it could be pretty tricky to even install XIII, especially with the 4-CD edition from 2003. There's always a solution so don't worry. To go through the installation use a guide from this website, the one from PCGamingWiki, or the one from Opaquit's XIII Files.

One important thing to note: Do not install the game inside the Program Files (x86) or Program Files directory. Always use locations like C:\Games\XIII since the game saves settings to its own folder and keeping it in Program Files could cause troubles in modern versions of Windows.

Another thing to note: Always choose Full installation in the game's installer if there's such an option. Never choose Minimal installation.

When XIII is installed you should apply the 1.4 patch and then try playing some single player or bot challenge to make sure everything works tech-wise. If not, there are tons of solutions to the most common tech problems either here at Mod DB or at PCGamingWiki.

2) Download Arthur's IP Join

It's a little tool that allows you to join game sessions by IP addresses. Download it here, save it to any location on your computer and then run it.

3) Join the server and enjoy the fun

Fill out the Login according to the following screenshot (change the Player properties section to fit your personality, obviously):

IP Join: how to set it up


The IP address is the one of Opaquit's server – 80.188.192.90 at port 7777 – that should be running all the time (there's a schedule of map rotations on this page so if the server suddenly restarts and is unreachable for a few minutes – don't panic, it usually happens every hour around :00). If you want to join a different game session, just fill in a different IP address.

Spread awareness about XIII's online multiplayer!

Be sure to share this guide to your friends or to people who used to play XIII in the past as the online community desperately needs some activity. Opaquit has a shoutbox on the bottom of his online game guide where you can discuss when you're connecting to the server or post other servers' IP addresses as well as some tech hints for XIII.

HD mods? I would like to ask about quicksave/quickload. Oh, wait, it's UbiSoft game.

Quicksave is F5 and quickload F9. Weird considering its not in the options menu, but it does save your game but only the last checkpoint. Same goes for manual saves. That is really bizarre why it doesn't just automatically save at the checkpoint and have real quicksave.
