Ubisoft details upcoming fixes to Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft is aware of the many, many issues players are having with Assassin's Creed Unity. So they decided to address them in a new blog post.


Ubisoft has announced upcoming updates to its recently released Assassin’s Creed Unity in a new blog post.

Ubisoft is currently working on a number of fixes for the next update to Assassin’s Creed Unity that will address a number of issues players are having, which includes:

  • Arno falling through the ground.
  • Game crashing when joining a co-op session.
  • Arno getting caught inside of hay carts.
  • Delay in reaching the main menu screen at game start.

The publisher is also looking into many of the other issues fans have addressed with the title, which includes some more widely-reported problems like frame rate issues, matchmaking co-op issues, Helix Credits issues, and graphical and collision issues.

Ubisoft also notes a Day 1 update has already been released which is said to fix a number of issues already. The nearly 1GB update features fixes for both single-player and co-op mode and addresses a number of HUD, animation, and camera issues. The patch also addresses matchmaking and connectivity issues, issues with AI detection and reaction, and some of the game’s missions have also been tweaked.

In our review, Ozzie makes note of a number of bugs and glitches while he was playing Assassin's Creed Unity. It's unfortunate Ubisoft released a game with so many technical flaws just to make sure it's out in time for the holidays. Hopefully this situation will humble Ubisoft a bit and take their releases a little more serious from now on as no game should launch with this many bugs.

      Will it fix the fucking framerate?

        I will be extremely surprised if anything significant is done with the performance. Watch Dogs PC is still shit, and while I have serious questions about the quality of the QA work done on this title, it's unlikely the performance issues are something that are quickly fixed, or they would have done so before launch.

        Maybe I'll be positively surprised. I guess there's a chance that this will get Ubisoft reeling to actually fix things, like the BF4 launch did for EA/DICE.

          Maybe Ubisoft just isn't ready for new-gen. Let's just see how well Far Cry 4 performs when it's released.

        as little faith i have in them, they did considerably increase performance in black flag on the PS4 post launch did they not?

          They bumped it from 900p to 1080p and added AA, IIRC. I think the framerate was the same, but I don't remember any issues with it in the first place.

      They truly rushed it to make the start of the holiday season. 1gb Day 1 patch? Won't someone please think of the data caps?!

      I played the original AssCreed and got bored with it and never went back. This one looks amazing and I'm about to pickup the Xbone bundle with it. Is it a pile of shit though?

        That's a tough one. I'd REALLY VERY HIGHLY recommend getting Black Flag over Unity, but if you insist on Unity, just know that it's pretty glitchy and performance (on all platforms) is not solid.

            Except for the "got bored with it and never went back" part. I know they improved on the game style from 1 to black flag but the fundamental game is the same IMO.

        3 is still pretty damn buggy on PC. The horse buggies bug the hell out all the time.
