Anyone playing Assassin’s Creed Unity has run into many an issues with the game since it’s release. Ubisoft has already released two patches for the PC and Playstation 4, and the Xbox One version is not far behind. Yesterday, the company posted their plans for the third patch, though no details as to how long it will take before release was given.
- 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.
Ubisoft’s “Update Team” stressed that this list is not final by any means, but wanted to let those of us that they are still working on the issues. Update #3 will be the largest one released to date, and are also investigating reports of performance issues including frame-rate drops.
We will continue to monitor the updates and will send along the details when they are released.
