View Full Version : Initializing Download on Launch (Syndicate)

So every single time I load up AC:S for the day, uplay tells me that it is initializing download.
It then proceeds to download 1.12 Gbs of I don't know what. Every ****ing day.

I haven't once opened this game at the start of a new day without this happening.
Once it has downloaded, even if I quit the game and come back to it, the game will launch without 'initializing download' again for the rest of the day.
But, as soon I wake up in the morning and go to play again, I get stuck with this ********.

I live in Australia where the most affordable internet is ADSL2 with absolutely appalling speeds when compared with the rest of the world.
This download takes at least five minutes every time.

I'm really sick to death of this.
Just once I would like to play my game when I want to and not have to wait for some arbitrary download.

Does this 'initializing download' happen to anyone else?
Can someone please explain to me why this keeps happening?

This should not be happening. Please contact Ubisoft Support (https://support.ubi.com/en-US/index) and they can help you get this resolved.
