Hello, just wondering if anyone has a source stating if the UPlay digital download will unlock at midnight for East coast (9pm West coast) or at 3AM East coast (midnight West coast)?

Thank you in advance.

From all indications, its 12am PST/3am EST. At least thats what it is for Steam.

There's been nothing said about uPlay from any reliable source, but its more than likely midnight PST.

I've been told it's 12 am in your timezone. So if you're EST it's 12 am EST, if you're PST is 12 am PST

For me it's about 3 hours and 20 minutes. That's at a download speed of 3.1MB/s.

I'm downloading now from Uplay and I'm averaging ~3 MB/s. That's on a 150Mbps fiber link which is capable of way more than 3 MB/s. I can only assume that Uplay is struggling with demand at the moment. Regardless, the download is ~42GB.

Edit - I failed to mention that the game is actually playable once you've downloaded the first 7.5GB. And my download speed has slowly crept up to ~7MB/s in the last few mintues...

it seems to be unlocked now. I just played through the prologue before it wouldn't let me continue because it was still downloading.

Nice! Where did you download it from?

Do you have a retail copy?

It still says "Pre-Ordered" for me. Eastern US.

I'm guessing you've finished with the pre-load?

There is no preload for the US at all on uPlay. Only Europe got to pre-load this game.

I got it from Green Man Gaming. Got the key around 9pm EST, started downloading and it gives you an option to start playing after a certain percentage is downloaded.

Playing the game now (key from greenmangaming.com)
FPS in the game is ok (45-50) but I get some serious stutter which makes the game not a lot of fun to play...hopefully this will be fixed with a later patch

ah that makes sense then, you got the uPlay key

Absolutely ridiculous that those of us who have ordered DIRECTLY from uPlay have to wait.

AMD released new ones too that specifically mention Unity.

I already downloaded the new driver (344.65) and SLI does work fine...unfortunately I get a lot of stutter...will try to put the settings down a notch or two and see if that will fix it

Well as I sit here at my PC at 12:23am EST, I can officially confirm that if you ordered through UPlay, you're officially waiting until 3am. Meanwhile, the Gamespot down the street looks very busy with happy, smiling fans who get to go home and pop the disc in their Xbox/PS. Oh well...at least I'll do better than 900p and 30FPS...I hope...

Damn, its not giving me an option to download EST time.

Good thing I got this through nvidia by buying an 970. I'll probably never buy a game from uplay. Seems like no one has good things to say about it. Its not like they are proving anyone wrong either.

When is Ubisoft going to email me my CD key?

When the game is officially released (12am PST). It may not happen right away, be sure to check your order history if the email doesnt show right away cause sometimes the key will show up there and the email is slow.

is this because it's still locked? I ordered it thru green man gaming, have downloaded it, it starts to load and then stops after 10 seconds with the ACU logo on my screen. Any thoughts?
