In other news, Ubisoft has published a “live blog” to keep track of the many (many) issues that are currently plaguing Assassin’s Creed Unity. The studio’s been hard at work since the game launched earlier this week, with many gamers unable to enjoy the tale of the French Revolution due to game-breaking bugs.
The live blog acknowledges that there’s already a Day One update for the game, which is known to fix “a number of issues”, but it barely scratches the surface.
The next update will help to address some more known bugs, including:
- 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.
A spokesperson has confirmed:
We are already looking into many of the other issues you’ve told us about and we have more updates planned.
The most widely-reported problems that Ubisoft is aware of include:
- Frame rate issues
- Graphical and collision issues
- Matchmaking co-op issues
- Helix Credits issues
Assassin’s Creed: Unity has not even launched in the UK yet, but it’s unlikely that the game will have all the issues ironed out before it hits on Friday.
These issues are also not restricted to console gamers – PC fans are being hit with uPlay outages (remember, Assassin’s Creed: Unity may or may not be available on Steam in your region), as well as issues with AMD-based machines and GPUs.
Ubisoft reassures fans:
We will be providing additional details in the coming days, so check back for updates.
…we’ll be keeping an eye on the live blog as well.
