Remember last April when a glitch in Paper Mario was discovered that would take 416 years to execute if attempted? The same man who discovered that glitch has unearthed another one. It turns out plenty of time-related bugs exist in the game due to no scripted limit being placed on them.
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.
It’s been lamented that the modern-day ability to fix post-release bugs in video game software via download patches is more of a curse than a blessing. Blessing in that, back in olden days, a damaging bug would have been unfixable at the manufacturing stage. Curse in that the ability to easily send out these fixes has made the gaming industry lazy and willing to ship their physical titles chock-filled with bugs, some of them even dangerous.
It seems that the year’s biggest blockbuster may have a potentially fatal flaw!
