U play is required, but you can play in offline mode, and disable the uplay overlay.

So, as I got it, steam is not required to play FC3, steam just launches Ubi program.
What the hell...

Steam is the digital store. You bought it through steam so you need steam to launch it.
Uplay is just an overlay so ubisoft can combard you with achievements and DLC and such.

I consider Steam as a place where I meet friends to play online, have fun, etc, not olnly store.
Thank you for advice.

I am redownloading the game, but it would be "play" instead of "download" button if already installed

No you can't, if you buy it on Steam you have to launch Uplay from Steam, if you launch Uplay without Steam you won't see FC3 on your Uplay account.

You don't even have FC3 on your Steam account btw, of course you don't know about this situation.

Well spotted. He hasn't even bought it through steam.
Kind of eliminates his argument.
I'm not really sure what he was asking in the first place now...

Sure, two my friends have it on steam accounts, and they can see and launch this game directly from Ubiplay. At the other side, I bouht it from Ubiplay and can launch it from Steam and from Ubiplay as well. So give us a favour, do not mislead Steam community.

Sure, YOU MUST log in into your ubiplay account. Than you will be ABLE to see and play FC3 regardless of Steam client!

While this discsussion continues, I have solved whole the question from topic start.
Thanks!

Did you buy far cry 3 though steam, or uplay, or both?
I bought it through steam.
If I launch uplay directly, I cannot load far cry 3.
If I launch farcry 3 directly, uplay will not accept my 'CD key', so I cannot load far cry 3.
If I launch farcry 3 through steam, u play accepts my 'CD key', so it is the only way I can load far cry 3.
I can assure you I am not trying to mislead anyone. I am simply stating my exact experience.

If you bought FC3 using Steam, you will find your CD key with Steam client, directly above "play" button or in game's properties. Put it in Ubiplay

How did you prevent STEAM from adding the game to your profile?
