View Full Version : Why won't pCARS start when offline?

So there's an update for the Xbox One console and it would take me days to do the update because we have used up all our bandwidth and my internets capped. This means that I have to use my Xbox offline to avoid the update. Unfortunately, I can't play pCARS without being connected. Is there a way to work around this?

Don't you have to be online to sign in first?

If you digitally downloaded the game you have to make sure you set your xbox one to my home xbox in settings (you need to be connected to the Internet to do this I think. Once you've done that you can access it when offline..

No. Do you need to be online to sign in to windows? Same thing on the Xbox ;)

No I meant does the game need to sign in on it's own or something... don't know much about the Xbox and was just asking.

I know :)
When in offline mode, it uses the local profile and the local save game (which will sync with the cloud next time you go online).
