View Full Version : Assassin's Creed: Origins - PC Pre-Download

10-03-2017, 03:25 PM
Hello everyone (hopefully Ubisoft employees included)

I pre-ordered the Origins Dawn of the Creed Collectors Edition. It shows up in my PC Uplay app as a "Coming Soon" game but there isn't any option to pre-download it so that I don't have to spend a lot of time downloading it the day it comes out (This is an option for Xbox One.) If anyone knows how to do it that would be awesome and if there isn't a way I'm hoping a Ubisoft employee will read this and at the very least suggest having a Pre-Download for PC with the next game that comes out.

As far as I know pre-load will be available, 2-3 days before the release date but not now :)

Thanx, I was wondering the same, so in around 2 weeks possibly.

It's going to take me about 8 hours to download the anticipated 42.3 gigabytes.

I'm guessing there will be a Day-1 patch to download some assets that actually get the game running (to try and stop the pre-download from being cracked ahead of release). So yeah, be ready for that additional download too :p

Hi, sorry for the delayed response!

There will be pre-loading before the game is released, however I don't have the specific dates and times to provide at the moment. I recommend keeping an eye here on the forums and on the ACO (https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/index.aspx) website for updates :)

That's great news, for I am in an area that only has 10 mbs download plans! So this file will take me a couple of days just to download!

10-23-2017, 04:39 PM
I was wondering the same! So it should be tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. Can't wait! :D

Pre-download opens tomorrow, the 24th.


10-24-2017, 06:06 AM

10-24-2017, 03:21 PM
it said that the Pre download will start at 16:00 UTC, I am from Germany and still cant download it.
Are there some issues?
Does someone else have this problem too?

10-24-2017, 03:39 PM

10-24-2017, 03:52 PM
But 16:00 UTC is in a little over 1h yet... It's 14:52 UTC now.

10-24-2017, 04:00 PM
I hope it will be fixed soon, cuz my Internet sucks a lil bit ...

10-24-2017, 04:34 PM
Nvm me i am Stupid xD
But one search for UTC says 15:33 and one says 17:33...
Which one of these is right?

10-24-2017, 05:02 PM
It works, and btw, the needed storage is currently 37.78 GB with two languages (english and german)

Has anyone actually managed to INSTALL it yet? or won't that happen until it 'unlocks'? I've completed the download ok, now it just says "pre-load completed" in my library list, but it's not actually installing yet.

It's available for PC pre-load; mine is all set. I bought mine through Steam. The game is not playable, just pre-loaded - there will be a 1.2 GBish patch on launch day (10/27) which will do final tweaks and enable the game.

Yeah, pulled my pre-download last night. English language only 37.67GB I have a 10Mbps connection, it came down at almost 12Mbps LOL. Got home at 19:00 south african time, UTC 17:00. Started the download and it was done before 04:00 local time this morning.

And now we wait... But it's all good, Wildlands still entertains
