Patch 3 for buggy Assassin’s Creed: Unity coming soon

Ubisoft is prepping the third patch for Assassin’s Creed: Unity to fix ongoing problems.


The game released last week riddled with bugs and frame rate issues, damaging the reputation of the franchise and knocking dollars off the publisher’s share price.

The publisher is trying to hit a balance of updating quickly and fixing problems, and will have more specific details soon – in the meantime, here’s a general overview of what’s going to be addressed.

  • 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.
