Usually it starts 2-3 days prior release, there is no official announcement yet on the exact date and time, i would suggest to revisit the forum 2-3 days before release to see if an announcement has been posted for this matter.

Is it confirmed that Syndicate would have preload ? Uplay always had problems in the past with preload and most times the game comes on Uplay after release date and its very disappointing to see people using uplay cannot preload and with steam people can preload.Please confirm because this is what i see please enable preload of game 3 days before and not after release date see below it says after release date

dinjo_jo the release is over 1 week away it is the 19th... today is the 11th. We all see that pre-ordered picture in our uplay accounts :) and I'm very eager to play. I know it helps some people with slow internet if they can start downloading a few days before so hopefully that will happen.

Looking at past games there always has been delayed preload sometime even on release date so wanted to confirm i know its 8 days but still they might have plans when they release the preload

Preload or not ... it doesnt matter .. after all the game is going to run only after the complete download . Aftwr the unity launch fiasco .. its better to w8 for patches and everything ...

Looks like preload starts Nov 17 11AM Central. (on Origin)

dinjo_jo
11-14-2015, 02:01 AM
Was there a offical announcement done? 17 is too late also since it's central time it's even at night for most places.

Come on its 50GB which would take some time even with 10Mbps it would take some time and have to keep on entire day on 18th, also can anyone confirm whether VPN unlock would happen what's the unlock time for different regions

It shows in my games in Origin that it can be preloaded on the 17th.

preload in origin and no preload in uplay ?

preload in origin and no preload in uplay ?

I would guess that once its loaded in Origin they give you key to activate the game in Uplay. Same as Steam. Uplay may have preload closer to release.

dinjo_jo
11-14-2015, 03:39 AM
Pure crap i would say the publisher own game launcher cannot get the game preload earlier and other sources Steam and Origin are able to get the info and data pre loaded no reason why Ubisoft does not listen to us.Whats the point of purchasing the game from uplay when you have to wait than other sources.

Anyways tweeted Ubisoft for confirmation of preload.

theheaddddddd
11-14-2015, 05:13 AM
even game price high in uplay . i am from india 1799 price steam and and origin, uplay 60$,

i wouldn't buy games from uplay next time. no preload very bad

dinjo_jo
11-14-2015, 05:48 AM
I'm also from India but i got the game with GTX 980 card but its disappointing to see major platform from publisher being ignored.

In other news steam has done updating all editions of the game as per steam db

dinjo_jo
11-14-2015, 05:52 AM
I just logged in to uPlay and i see no preload would happen crap, and would be available after release date

Very Bad , Not Expect From Uplay. I bought Farcry 4, AC Unity Both are Released Preload before release.

YazX_
11-14-2015, 04:14 PM
You cannot expect to preload a game 1 week before release, preloading starts 2-3 days before release, we are still 5 days away from it, i'm not aware of any publisher that has opened pre-loading earlier than 3 days from release date, other publishers open it just 1 day before release, so please be patient until preloading starts without jumping into conclusions since Ubisoft games preloading feature has been integrated and in-action since last year with all new titles.

P.S: Steam doesn't control games preloading rather than providing the service, each publisher/developer is free and has full control to set the preload date, all of these updates you see on Steam db are done by Ubisoft team, most probably preloading will start at the same date on Steam and UPlay but time might vary.

dinjo_jo
11-14-2015, 05:05 PM
So are you saying the information on uPlay is not correct ?

strigoi1958
11-14-2015, 07:04 PM
@dinjo_jo on uplay it says it will be available to PLAY after the release date not available to download after the release date. I know it can help if people have slow internet or capped internet if they can download over a longer period but... as I see it, the console players have already played it so if someone gets it a day or 2 before me, I don't mind... (but I'm still really excited it is nearly here :) )

RVSage
11-14-2015, 09:07 PM
as strigoi and Yaz said, it only pre-loads 2-3 days before and the uplay information states that "you" can play on or before release date. Rogue pre-loaded on my PC 3 days ago, so did Unity. No worries guys, prelaod will happen

if you have steam version of the game then you cannot download it via UPlay, steam version of any Ubisoft game is the download manager, so all downloads and files/cache verification is done from steam and you will not have preload, download nor verify files in UPlay, only play button. and when the game fully unlocks, you need to enter the key provided by steam into UPlay,

I have Uplay Version, Preorderd 3 days ago. I am from India , My Net speed damn slow. 50GB download Takes almost 3days. So I need Preload honestly.

11-15-2015, 01:24 PM
Patience young grasshopper... :)
It has been said numerous times that preload will most likely be available two to three days prior to release and since it's still four days to release why whine about it?
I don't care if it takes you 90 days to download the game, if it takes too long to download then order the DVD... :cool:

You should have preordered from Flipkart or Amazon, would have gotten the physical version by 21-22 max. Why go through all the hassle if you don't have a good speed to download.

11-16-2015, 04:38 AM

Well only games i can think of that give minimal data on dvd s on physical disk are mostly steam games ( MGS 5 and Fallout 4 etc). I have Physical version of all AC games ( except AC Unity coz i got a very good deal for ACU Gold edition on origin which as it turned out eventually led me to have a free Far Cry 4 copy from UBI :cool: ) and all games have full data on the disk. Thank god UBI dont do these stupid things like some other companies of giving just the game key in physical version of the game.

FREE Farcry 4 .... wow I love Farcry 4 and you got it free. Nice :)
Hahaha yeah it was a pretty good. I had already bought Crew aside from AC Unity and only Far Cry 4 was left in the UBI offer for me, so i grabbed it :)

I actually felt a little bad for UBI that they had to give a free game to everyone who bought gold edition and dead kings dlc to standard edition buyers. i guess if unity ran good on consoles UBI probably would nt have made this offer coz we know how optimized the pc version of AC games really are ;)

I bought ACU knowing i will have a hard time running it on my old 660 ti card but i still loved it :) but after i got my new pc with a 980 i really had a blast playing with my friends.

UPlay does have pre-loading now, yeah, even though it was only added recently. And, at least with recent games, UPlay pre-loading starts after Steam, even with Ubisoft games, which is kind of weird.

Never trust Stream, unlock time. Fallout 4 jumped from 20 hours to 18 hours to "You can play now" within half an hour, because they did a midnight release, which Steam never takes into consideration. The trainwreck that is Anno 2205 did the same. Still don't know when this trainwreck is being released though.
