I get an error message saying could not load "DuniaDemo_clang_64_dx12_plus.dll".

I tried verifying files, did not work. That file doesn't exist in my directory. I only have DuniaDemo_clang_64_dx12.dll

I also tried copying the file from the base game but the game won't start, although the error message is gone as well.

Get the same message when launching the game, also Connect say something about "some unavailable games in my active subscription". :confused:

Same. Tried verifying, reinstall, updating c++, updating vcredist. Nothing works so far.

It seems that we are missing the Uplay "plus" version of the DuniaDemo files. in the main game you have 4 DX files and 2 of them are "plus" files. In the Watchdogs Legion of the dead files, it only has the 2 DX and neither are the "plus" ones. So it seems it's an issue with Uplay plus and not with the game.

having the same problem and the game will not launch. looking for a fix to somehow add the missing file that the game released with.

couldn't even install the game even tho I owned legion because it said I needed the subscription. its a glitch and they said they are working on it. now I got + and now it won't even launch. I'm just exhausted at this point.

As my colleague here mentioned, this issue has been reported to the dev team and they are currently investigating. I'm very sorry for the trouble you've been experiencing in the meantime, I hope we'll have an update to share with you very soon!

is there not a command line argument that can be used to force the game to run in dx11 instead of dx12 which seems to be the main problem with the game launching?

DresdenSinn
06-03-2021, 12:27 AM
It's missing both dx11_plus.dll and dx12_plus.dll and copy/pasting them from the main game doesn't work

Tried a little experiment, copy pasted the two dll files nad put plus in the end of their names so that there are 4 dll files in the bin folder, instead of getting the error we all are getting i got another one, Unable to start the game, the product cannot be activated at this time

the only fix it seems is for Ubisoft to patch it. Hopefully that comes soon

My response from support was the bread and butter "Please send us your PC specs and DxDiag files so we can help you"... It's like, you've shipped the product missing game files so we can't launch it. Kinda gave up on that instantly.

I got the same message as well. I'm quite gutted as I was quite hyped to start the game. I'm not alone with this problem.
