I got the collectors edition of the game on launch... Uplay says I got the DLC forgot if I bought it or had it in the edition... Because I didn't bother to play it till now...

I've patched the game up all the way and still the game won't work says needs to be installed... But problem is, there's no install or download button for it.

Only solutions I found online are installing using pirated download but using the original key...

I'm hoping there's a more official way of doing this.

Is there one?

Thanks for any help possible. :)

Go the ACIII in Uplay. On the left there should be a button for DLC. Click that and scroll down to the ToKW episodes, and it should give you an option to download them again. If it doesn't contact support (click my sig), they ought to know where to look.

All i see there is "Owned" & copy code to clipboard.

which I did and activated the key, just can't install it.
Also I've send to support and will be waiting for any response. :)

Huh. Now that I think about it, I remember there was a problem with ToKW, thanks to an update of Uplay that happened between the first and second episode releases - I have a feeling that this might be related...

You have to reinstall from Uplay. AC3 was moved to the new format and now there are no separate installers. Move your AC3 folder, uninstall it, put back moved folder. Click "download" in Uplay and use the same folder. Uplay with scan it and download all missing files including owned DLCs. In future simply press "download" in Uplay, dont use discs.

Hi, thanks for ur replies.

I tried doing that way but rather then just downloading what was missing, it was trying to download the whole game...
I can't wait for 20+ GB to dl,

anyway I asked at Ubi support and got a reply, to where I can download the DLC separately...

Do you have a video showing us how to do it?

@Maalot76 can you give more information?
Did you buy a gold edition and the DLC has not shown up?
did you buy the game and then bought the DLC separately? If yes, did you buy both on uplay or steam? because dlc from one will not work with a game on the other one.
