There’s a new patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity in the pipeline, and it aims to fix the bugs which are plaguing the game at the moment. Ubisoft have let us know what to expect from this upcoming update.
- 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.
With this being the third update to the game, they seem to be on their way to addressing the main issues found. This doesn’t cover everything, and isn’t quite the final patch notes, but they’re basically trying to get as much as they can finished as soon as possible. So, while this “won’t solve every problem”, they’re “expecting that it will dramatically improve your experience.”
It doesn’t solve frame rate drops, though, but apparently playing offline can help that – it seems to be a similar issue to FIFA 15’s UPnP lag.
