Unique Tale: Each time I boot up Watch Canine: Legion, a timer begins ticking. Sooner or later the sport will crash.

Regardless of how again and again I attempt to get thru Justice4Claire, the sport will crash, leaving me not able to complete the project and growth within the sport. I shouldn’t have a precise quantity, however I have most likely tried it greater than a dozen occasions during the last few days. I have additionally encountered new issues the place the sport would take upwards of 5 mins to load; from time to time then crashing right through that load display. Ubisoft has stated this explicit downside as a release factor, however it is unclear when it will be mounted, leaving me not able to growth in my very own sport till a long run patch. It is value mentioning, Justice4Claire is the fifth-to-last project of the sport, which means I am most likely most effective an hour or two from wrapping the principle marketing campaign.
