Uplay is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications service developed by Ubisoft to provide an experience similar to the achievements/trophies offered by various other game companies. The service is provided across various platforms (PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Facebook, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, OnLive). Uplay allows players to connect with other players, unlock exclusive in-game content, and purchase games and other content.
However, some users have been reporting the “Unable to start the game” error when trying to launch a game from Uplay. This can be very frustrating, especially if you have paid for the game and are unable to play it. In this article, we will show you how to fix the “Unable to start the game” error on Uplay.
What Causes the Error?
There are a few different things that could be causing the error message you’re seeing when trying to launch a game through Uplay. It could be an issue with the game itself, with your Uplay account, or with your computer’s system settings.
To figure out what’s causing the problem, it’s best to start with the simplest possible solution and work your way up from there. First, try restarting your computer and launching the game again. If that doesn’t work, try logging out of your Uplay account and then logging back in. If neither of those solutions work, you may need to adjust your computer’s system settings.
System settings that could be causing the problem include your computer’s firewall, anti-virus software, and proxy settings. If you’re not sure how to change these settings, you can find instructions online or contact your computer’s support team for help.
Once you’ve tried all of the above solutions, if the problem persists, it’s likely that the issue is with the game itself and not with Uplay. In this case, you’ll need to contact the game’s support team for further assistance.
