The latest patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity is to be made available today across all platforms. According to Ubisoft, this update should fix most of the remaining issues that have not been addressed by previous patches. These include the most game breaking bugs, such as save progression being corrupted, game crashes and framerate drops as well as general performance and stability. The patch also includes a refurbished Paris map, with certain textures and areas receiving changes to help solve some of the problems.
The update though might take some time to download and will be a concern for those with limited bandwidth as it comes in at a whopping 6.7 GB worth of data. Ubisoft says that this is down to several reasons, some of which it went into detail with on its website.
“Part of the team’s effort to enhance frame rate for players involves replacing and updating portions of the Paris city map where we are seeing issues. This explains the large size of this title update (6.7 GB). However, since a large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to the game’s overall size will be less than 6.7 GB.”
The dismal launch of the game has already let to Ubisoft issuing an apology to all the customers who bought the game and fans of the series in general. This was after stock in the publisher giant dropped by 30% following the poor performance of the game and the large number of complaints received from frustrated players. In response to the criticism, Ubisoft suspended the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity with players instead getting free access to all of the content that was planned to release for it for free. Those who already bought the DLC add-on were able to choose from a selection of games to download at no cost.
