View Full Version : Need help about ACU

11-09-2014, 09:57 PM
I want to buy ACU, but my internet is very slow and I have a 20 GB data cap. So my question is, if I buy the game from GameStop, will I be able to just plop the disk in my PC and install the game without internet ?

I think yes if you can for e.g borrow dvds with game and have your own code, but internet is needed for activation and eventual patches (you do not have to install them if you play in offline mode)

Game requires internet for activation and has a lot of online-only features. Also I guess it will have a big day 1 patch to download.

Yes you dont need internet for installation if you have the physical disc but you need to activate the game online for the first time (which doesnt require high bandwidth) and then you can play offline, but note, as AC_Mako said, you will miss future patches and any in-game online features will be disabled. however, you can go online/offline anytime through UPlay client which is the main application for launching Ubisoft games on PC.
