Uplay is keeping some from playing Watch Dogs on PC

Tuesday, 27th May 2014 20:16 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Watch Dogs PC players are reporting crashes and downloading issues when trying to play the game.

While it’s unknown at present how widespread the issue is, the problem stems from Uplay, which is causing the game to crash to the desktop.

Other users have reported the inability to even log into Uplay, which is required in order to play Watch Dogs on PC.

Some have even reported they are unable to download the game.

There are others who have reported no issues at all.

Ubisoft has said it is aware of the issue and cites a problem with Uplay’s authentication services.

“Players may experience long delays when trying to login in-game. More to come,” said the firm on Twitter.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Uplay is bad and they should feel bad. Besides they have their games on Steam and Origin, which are both decent platforms. Why even bother with that thing?

    Thankfully you can play uplay and Watch_Dogs offline.

    UPlay was designed to keep you from playing anything on PC.

    Moral?

    Just pirate Ubisoft stuff, because they are extracting the urine from us.

    How many game releases have they totally fucking ruined with their ALWAYS shitty server service, have they EVER had a successful launch.

    Anyway fuck Ubi, I’ll never buy their shit… between their insistence on their own client and their abominable launches, it’s simply not worth it. Paying them money doesn’t make their service better.

    It’s far less hassle, cheaper and you don’t get that “shafted up the arse” feeling just to pirate their stuff because the version you get doesn’t have all extra crap and you don’t feel like a goddamned idiot for giving money to a company who just doesn’t care enough to get it right first time.
