I set-up a Uplay account with Ubisoft a short time ago, and it was a lot less complicated and frustrating than registering for a Steam account! Really easy — and really easy to log in to my account and get this game into my library: I don’t know why people are having trouble now, unless it’s volume trying to get this game.
You don’t have to download this rather large game immediately: once it’s in your library, you can download whenever you have time.
As for the game: I don’t want to kill anything, or get into any battles unless it’s a battle of wits; but I’m grateful for the chance to check out this famous series.
There better not be blood!
