Assassin’s Creed Unity was releases earlier this week in a less than ideal manner, with plenty of bugs and glitches to go around on all platforms, namely PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game received generally good reviews (although not great) from most news outlets, but a lot of gamers out there were not so kind due to the plethora of issues which made Ubisoft’s latest title all but unplayable for many. The company is definitely aware of these issues and has already releases two patches aimed at fixing some of them. Seeing as how Assassin’s Creed Unity still has more than a couple of problems, Ubisoft will launch one more patch in the near future and this is one is going to be much larger in scope than the first two. The patch notes have not been announced yet, but the company did release a preview of Patch 3.
- Gameplay: this includes bugs like Arno getting stuck on certain areas of the map (including a few more hay carts), problems with getting into/out of cover, character animation bugs, and general camera problems.
- AI & Crowd: in this category are problems with NPC animations, crowd events, and crowd stations, NPC navigation issues, as well as bugs related to NPCs detecting Arno’s activities in various situations.
- Matchmaking & Connectivity: this covers a number of issues related to co-op play, including bugs with joining games in-progress and problems that happen during host migration.
- Menus & HUD: fixes in this category will address missing details in certain menus, problems with some of the mission objective and co-op update pop-ups, localization inconsistencies, as well as some of the issues with menus and pop-ups overlapping each other.
- General Stability: this includes fixes for a number of crash situations we’ve identified in both campaign and co-op modes.
The third patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity is being created with user feedback in mind, so if you have any problems with the game you can report them on Ubisoft’s support site. And it would be a very good idea to do so because the game still has a large amount of problems. Just to give an idea, the company says that not even this third patch can solve all the problems, but at least “it will dramatically improve your experience.” It’s great to see that the Live Updates Team is working hard to roll out these patches as fast as possible, but it’s downright mind boggling that Assassin’s Creed Unity was even launched in the first place. Gamers don’t forget easily and you can be certain they will be talking about this game’s extremely poor quality at launch for years to come.
