Fix AC Mirage Download Stuck on Ubisoft Connect – Downloading at slow speed

AC Mirage download stuck – If you came here looking for more intel on the ‘AC Mirage download stuck’ issue on Ubisoft Connect, then you are at the right place. A lot of users are facing this issue. Don’t worry, you are not alone.

What to do if the download for AC Mirage is Stuck?

It looks like a lot of people, who are trying to download Assassin’s Creed Mirage via Ubisoft Connect, are facing some speed and installation issues. The download is getting stuck for some. While for some, the download is quite slow. Let me be clear, I did not face any such problem during my installation. Also, it looks like the issue is more prominent on Ubisoft Connect, when compared to Epic Games Store. The thing is, download issues on launch day are very common in Ubisoft AAA titles. The majority of the time, the reason behind slow download speeds are overloaded servers. If you just wait a few hours after the release, you can avoid problems like these.

Anyway, before we move any further in this article, there are some basic stuff that I would like you to try, and these fixes work most of the time:

  • Pause your Assassin’s Creed Mirage download on Ubisoft Connect > Wait for a minute > Your download speed should come down to 0B/s > Resume the download.
  • You can do the exact same thing on Epic Games Store also. Pause, wait, and resume.
  • The second thing you can do is, restart Ubisoft Connect or your entire PC (Works every time).
  • Finally, restart the entire download. It doesn’t matter, even if you have already downloaded a hefty chunk. It is better than being stuck at the same place for a couple of hours. Cancel the download > Go to Add or remove programs > Uninstall AC Mirage > Start the download again.

Okay, this issue is not something that is exclusive to Assassin’s Creed Mirage only. I have personally gone through this multiple times. And most of the time, one of the steps mentioned above, did the job for me. Check your Internet connection, and make sure that it is working properly. Download another game from your Ubisoft Connect Library to check whether you are getting the download speed you are supposed to get. You can also try clearing your Ubisoft Connect Game Installer cache.

  1. Launch Ubisoft Connect.
  2. Click on the ‘Icon with 3 lines’ located on the top-left.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click on Downloads.
  5. Now click on the ‘Delete all game installers’ button and delete the cache.
  6. Also, make sure that you don’t have ‘Limit bandwidth usage’ ticked.

What might actually be the issue

There is a huge chance that this issue is not being caused by any sort of error. You see, Ubisoft Connect doesn’t only download your games, but installs them too, along with other important installations that ship with the game. The latest DirectX, .net framework, Microsoft Visual Studio. All of these will get installed, and then the ‘Play’ button will become available on the launcher.

When Ubisoft Connect shows that your download speed is stuck at 0B/s, there is a chance that your Assassin’s Creed Mirage download is complete, and the installation is taking place. If you check out my graph during the AC Mirage download, you will notice that the download hit 0 kB/s for a small stretch, then picked up again:

It means it was installing some files at the moment. The full size of AC Mirage on PC is something around 40 GB. I personally did not face this issue because I am using a Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe SSD that has Read and Write speeds up to 3500 MB/s and 3300 MB/s respectively. But for normal HDD users, even if they have a 7200 RPM one, the entire installation process will take some time. And there is no way to speed the procedure.
