    Hello all!
    I was playing AC Origins for the first time when it didn't launch. I know many people have this issue, and I have found a fix. (note that this fix is for the official game version. I do not know if it works for cracks)
    1st Solution
    Your game is most likely on a Microsoft Storage Device. For some reason, it is the cause of this issue. Simply move the game files to an other drive. For me, it was my main "C:" SSD drive.
    Now, I know many might not have space on that other drive. If so, the next solution will help you with that.
    2nd Solution
    1- Locate the "sounddata" folder inside the game installation folder. ("<programs folder>\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Assassin's Creed Origins\sounddata" probably)
    2- Move "sounddata" folder to anywhere on your C:\ drive. (I moved it to "C:\Users\<my user>\Documents\AC origins\sounddata")
    3- Remove the "sounddata" folder from the Assassin's Creed Origins installations folder, or rename it to something else. However we won't need this folder any longer so removing it won't hurt.
    4- Open CMD in administration mode and navigate to the folder where you put the "sounddata" folder on the C:\ drive with:

    cd "C:\Users\<my user>\Documents\AC origins"
    
    

    5- Make a hard link syslink from the filesynced folder on C:\ to the Assassin's Creed Origins installation folder on your other drive with:

    mklink /J "E:\<programs folder>\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Assassin's Creed Origins\sounddata" "C:\Users\<my user>\Documents\AC origins\sounddata"  

    6- Start the game via Uplay as usual.
    More info about the mklink command: (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/mklink)
    I hope this guide helped you resolve your issue. Please tell me if you notice any errors in my post.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @kmiller10 I tried the second solution and the game launched, thanks. But I am facing another freeze now, the game freezes a few seconds after it loads, exactly after it says "looking for additional content" any idea on how to fix that?

    Hey @ashtro101

    For this issue, I would just try verifying the files first of all.

    In Ubisoft Connect - Select "Properties" located underneath the "Play" button and then select "verify files".

    Let us know if that helped resolve it for you.

    Edit - I just came across your own thread, so just reply to that one if you need further help with this.
