Uplay is keeping some from playing Watch Dogs on PC

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.
