Many people have bought Watch Dogs Legion through Epic Games Store. Those who did still have to install Uplay, and the game requires both clients to be up when starting it. That’s not the worst part of it, though – a number of folks have been unable to play at all. They’re faced with a message asking for a Watch Dogs Legion Ubisoft Connect activation code for Epic Games Store, which they have no idea where to find. If you’re having trouble trying to link Ubisoft to Epic Games, this guide will help you fix the issue.
Where to find activation code?
In order to find the activation code, launch Uplay on its own, then go to Watch Dogs Legion and hit the Show Key button. That’s the activation code you need to enter on EGS. If you get a new message, saying that this code is already activated on this account, you could try deleting the game and installing it through Uplay. We’ve seen a lot of reports saying that solved it.
Locate installed game not working
Some have tried to avoid downloading the game again by using the Locate Installed Game feature from the Ubisoft launcher. Sadly, this does not seem to work – the client doesn’t recognize the EGS version, probably due to a slight difference stemming from being on different clients.
If entering the key and redownloading the game through Uplay don’t work, there’s not much more you can do. You will just have to wait for the developers to fix the issue. It’s far from the only one, but it’s definitely among the most egregious ones, like the constant crashing in the PC version or overheating the console to the point where it shuts down on Xbox.
