I recently purchased Assassin's Creed 3 via steam. Upon launching the game I was greeted with a Uplay registration Window. I immediately closed it and uninstalled Uplay. After attempting to run the game again with my PC cleansed of this unwanted software I was prompted with an error instructing me to re-install the game. So, after another 18GB download I have re-installed and reluctantly registered yet another account just to play a single player game. I now have yet another unwanted digital distribution medium on my computer just to play a game. I want to remove Uplay and play without it. Please provide me with instructions on how to do so as I'd much prefer not to go the route of using a pirated and hacked copy of the game just to get rid of this unwanted service and software. There is absolutely no reason that Ubisoft needed to push their own content distribution system and software on me when they could have integrated with Steam's existing system.
If instructions to play Assassin's Creed 3 without Uplay currently do not exist, does anyone have a link to documentation stating Uplay is required? That way I can just uninstall, get a hacked copy, and play without the aggravation.
