With some degree of trepidition I purchased the download version of the Shades of Darkness Expansion. I say trepidition becuase I have had so many problems with HoMM6 and trying to purchase DLC from Ubi.
After payment was processed it gave a serial number and said the game would be available in the Uplay screen.
When I restart uplay all I see is the game exactly as it was before (it was already called Shades of Darkness before I purchased the expansion today but none of the content was available). When I start the game there are no extra campaigns, missions or maps and the Stronghold faction is not available. There is no option to unlock anything.
What do I need to do to activate the expansion content?
PS: I tried running the 2.1 patch but it didnt work, error message -> "Cant apply patch because Might and Magic Heroes VI - Shades of Darkness is not yet installed"
