Issue 1: The News Feed is Out of Date
As you can see, it is dated 22nd October 2013, when the game was launched, advertising Smashing Pumpkins DLC.
Issue 2: Selecting UPlay from the Main Menu In Rocksmith 2014
This is what happens when you select Uplay from the Main Menu. The message says “The Uplay service is unavailable. Please try again later.”.
Issue 3: Unlocked Uplay Rewards Unavailable
These two images illustrate the Uplay rewards being broken. You can see in the first image my Karawan song is locked and you can see in the second image that I have unlocked and redemmed all Uplay rewards for the game.
Issue 4: The Score Attack Leaderboards Are “Reset” or Unavailable
The above image shows my score on Nirvana – In Bloom on Medium difficulty. I was top of the leaderboard with a score nearly 700,000. The game was clearly online at the time I got this score. This was pre-patch 1.02.
The above image shows the same scoreboard after patch 1.02. It basically appears to be wiped but I think this may be because the game is not integrating with Uplay properly? How there is any scores on there at all, I am not sure? Maybe they are dummy scores to get the ball rolling or something, but it doesn’t make any sense to me.
The image above shows that my installation of the game remembers my scores from Score Attack even after patch 1.02 is applied.
Issue 5: Uplay and Sony Account Linking
This image shows that I have gone in to my Uplay account online and unlinked my Sony account. I did this because I hoped it would resolve the issue of Rocksmith 2014 asking me to login to Uplay every time it started and then giving me the error message “Failed to link Uplay and Sony account”. The idea being if I removed the current link, I would be able to re-link again via the game. This did not work.
My Uplay credentials are obviously fine because I am logging in to the website with them.
If you re-register your Uplay account via the game with the same credentials it will actually accept them and the game will stop prompting you to login. You even get an email from Ubisoft thanking you from registering. Unfortunately, as you can see above, it doesn’t link back to your proper Uplay account and rewards are still locked etc. There appears to be no way to remove your Uplay details from Rocksmith 2014 after doing this. I have tried deleting Saved Game, Rocksmith 2014 1.02 Patch and even deleting my PS3 account profile. The only thing I haven’t tried is a format or factory reset on my console, but I am not doing that.
For all intents and purposes, the game appears to be disconnected from Uplay.
