Well this sucks. Steam and Origin can pre download BUT not Uplay. WTF is that $hit

Ubisoft take note, with games this big pre-load becomes a necessity...if everyone is downloading on launch day everything else suffers...and that is provided that the download servers don't crack under the strain. We don't want another EA/SimCity issue here...

Any idea what time it will be available to download? I think AC IV was later in the day but that was a year ago and I'm old.

They already have taken note. Far Cry 4 is going to be the first uPlay title to have worldwide preload.

This has long been one of the biggest problems with uPlay. At least its finally changing.

In fairness, Unity is the first uPlay title to have a preload, but its only available for the EMEA regions.
