    @diiorio Did the game release already? I am not able to play. Only having the preload button instead of play button.

    @diiorio I’ve set a vpn for New Zealand and it basically “tricked” Ubisoft connect that I’m over there

    @dbgager No, it's not. It's an urban legend. You can use VPN like you want.

    It's because you're using a VPN. Watchdogs was the same way.

    If you're not playing from the same region you preloaded from, it closes when Uplay runs a sync check. No way around it that I know of.

    @brizzak ok well that is sort of good news rather than bad I just thought the files or something was corrupt and would be a pain in the [censored] to fix. I guess I’ll have to wait until tonight

    Hello everyone,

    I am unsure if the issue from the first post of this thread is still occurring post-launch, so any confirmation of this would be good to have from yourself CougarJJXXX.

    One point I do want to raise however having spotted THW-GER's post, is that we do not encourage the use of VPNs with our games or services, which is explicitly written in our support article here, and using a VPN to circumvent regional restrictions is also forbidden in our terms of use:

    5           What are our rules to sustain a friendly, safe and fair gaming environment and community? 
    5.3        Here is a non-exhaustive list of forbidden behaviours that may lead to investigation by our staff and may result in sanctions (as detailed in Article 6):
    24.  Bypassing regional restrictions of a Service with the help of proxy, VPN or other tools.


    I would therefore strongly advise that none of you use a VPN in such a way, lest you risk your account being sanctioned. It is not an "urban legend" - it is actively against our terms of use!
