View Full Version : If I purchased on Steam - can I run it on Uplay WITHOUT Steam?

Hi, I don't want to use Ubishop to buy Heroes 7 (if I do) because they will charge me nearly $10 in taxes because we are both in Canada (something I've already tested via checkout). So if I buy it on Steam I don't have to pay tax.

However I'm concerned that if I buy it on Steam, it will require me to be running both steam AND uplay - to play Heroes 7.

So my question for ubisoft is can I play Heroes 7 ON uplay without running steam if I purchase it on steam (like can I just punch in a code from steam or will it auto-register it into my uplay account once I launch it the first time, ect?)

For Uplay, I believe you only have to activate it once and you then have the option to play offline forever. And definitely no persistent connection requirement like MMH6.

If you buy it on Steam, you can play offline as well, but the Steam client needs to be running.
