New Uplay bug affecting Watch Dogs

Claiming Uplay rewards is locking some players out of the game

If you thought that Ubisoft had managed to put last week's Uplay Watch Dogs issues behind them then, unfortunately you'd be mistaken.

This week has seen a new bug rear its ugly head for the Uplay interactivity in Watch Dogs. A significant number to Watch Dogs players on all platforms are reporting that they have been unable to get into the game after claiming some of the game's rewards on Uplay.

The issue isn't troubling everyone but there's 201-page thread on Ubisoft's official forum (at time of writing) filled with disgruntled players who are being met with an eternal loading screen no matter whether they're playing on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One or Xbox 360.

Ubisoft has reported via the Watch Dogs Twitter feed that they are aware of the problem and are looking into it. They stated, "We're aware some of you are stuck on the loading screen. We're hard at work on isolating the problem to find a fix. If you're encountering that issue, please submit a ticket to to help move forward. Thanks for understanding."

Until the problem is solved, if you can still play the game then just don't try and claim any of the Uplay in-game rewards.

Despite the numerous issues with Uplay Watch Dogs has still managed to be Ubisoft's most successful launch in the company's history selling 4 million copies in the first week alone.

We need to talk... about 'gamers'
Because that term has a much wider definition than it used to.
