    Can't launch the game on the Epic Games Launcher

    I bought this morning Watch Dogs 2 via the launcher Epic Games. To install it, the launcher tells me that I have to login to a Ubisoft account. Not having one, I created one. The window has been closed and on the launcher, I still had to be connected to Ubisoft. So I clicked again, and there were a long load (15 seconds) before asking me to close the window telling me that the connection was successful. When I closed the page, there were a checking window on the launcher, then it closes, and I still had to log in to Ubisoft. I tried this maneuver a dozen times, without success. I do not know what to do anymore, that's why I turn to you.

    Hello guys,

    Sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. Could you please submit a support ticket on our Support Site? A specialist for the game would be able to investigate further and in more detail than I am able to via forums.

    Fund fix

    Found the Fix! You gotta install it through Uplay after you've already completed the install with EGS ^_^. Here's how to do it.
    Install through EGS( Epic Game Store) - FYI it's currently free 3/21/20
    Then go here in File Explorer : C:\Program Files\Epic Games\WatchDogs\bin
    Then double click the file " Watch_Dogs "
    Log into your Uplay account and follow the prompts when they come up
    Then you should have another 14gb install for the game on Uplay -_-
    After install you will see a new shortcut (If enabled right before install) and enjoy

    After installing the game on uplay services can I delete the one on the epic games launcher to get my original 14 gb back?

    Start Uplay client, login to Uplay client, start WD from Epic Game Launcher.

    Other solution??

    so basically what you mean is you already installed Watch_Dogs in (Egs)

    -Go to Uplay click login etc.
    -Find Watch_Dogs right click it and view game details
    -You can see under the download button there is locate install files
    -Find where you install the file in Egs aka. Watch_dogs and then click it and ok/done.

    this is just a solution where you don't download another 14gb.

    I installed WD on EG only. I don't remember how i ended up with uPlay launcher on desktop as the PC I'm on was freshly installed a few weeks ago, but I reckon it was from EG install of WD. I started uPlay from desktop.

    I logged into uPlay shortcut on desktop and ran WD from EG launcher. I didn't install WD from uPlay only on EG.

    Regardless all you probably need to do is download uPlay, install, launch login then install WD only from EG.
