I just bought Far Cry 3 on Steam and I have been trying to connect online to UBI. However it times out and gives this message.

enter image description here

This means I cannot go and play Multiplayer or Coop and whenever I play single player and go to the pause screen I get this annoying 30 second time interval with it trying to connect to the service.

How do I fix this problem?

I am using a router and firewall but I made sure nothing is being blocked.

    UPlay might just be down again :( this happened during the summer sales, as well.

  • Welcome to Ubisoft's "we've fixed it, really!" DRM.

  • 'Always Online' DRM is the absolute worst.

You aren't the only one. Ubisoft got some problems with keeping the online servers up and running.

You can see their twitter account for news about the situation. As you can see it's full of "it's working - it's not working - it's working again - oops, it's off again" messages.

    DRM for the win

  • Not DRM per se, as you CAN play the game offline. Extremely annoying, though.
