Might & Magic Heroes 6 – Ubisoft working to fix issues plaguing users

Saturday, 4th May 2013 17:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Since the release of Shades of Darkness for Might & Magic Heroes 6 this week, many players are reporting the inability to play the game, among other issues.

According to various posts on the Steam and Ubisoft forums, issues range corrupt installation files, missing music, issues with keys, freezing, and some even blaming the issues on the game’s DRM. Some issues were also blamed on the patch which coincided with the expansion’s release.

Ubisoft responded on the matter today, stating it is “working to correct” the issues, while assuring players that none of their content is lost.

“None of your content is lost and will reappear once this work has been carried out,” read the forum post. “Those with issues with keys, these are not broken and will be fixed as soon as possible.

“Steam users: if you see Shades of Darkness in your list you are correctly updated. Please ensure you restart Steam. Those with a new purchase of Standard, Gold, Deluxe Editions: we are aware of a menu issue and are working to correct this.”

Until a fix is issued, Ubisoft has pointed to a forum post from a user who found a way around some of the issues presented.

    Supposedly a lot of this is because people are trying to play it as a standalone, which was what Ubisoft advertised it as being, but it seems you actually have to have standard 6 installed to play it.

    Who buys an Ubisoft game and expects it to work? Guess who’s copy DOES work? That’s right, the pirate copy, get yourself a cookie and stop buying Ubisoft games.

    interesting, ubisoft last month or so wanted to be more friendly with pc gamers, you know none of their games works for pc like assassin’s creed 3 or even trials evolution and ghost recon & splinter cell conviction &… because of chimps in ubisoft that porting the games. but this is new and interesting, this is not a port, and this is not a new engine or IP and more importantly it is a pc game only that wont work and not a full game, just an expantion pack they said would be standalone but it’s not.
