Assassin’s Creed Unity got off to a very buggy start a few weeks back. Some of the glitches were amusing, while others were utterly terrifying. Since players started sharing all manner of glitches, Ubisoft has been hard at work pushing out constant updates for the game across PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Reports are that those patches have made things much more stable, especially with the third major update which released today.
Ubisoft, however, is obviously not happy with the way things have gone, and to say sorry for releasing a broken product they’ve promised that the first piece of DLC (“Dead Kings”) will be free for everyone.
“At launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues,” said Ubisoft Montreal & Toronto CEO Yannis Mallat. “I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.”
Those who have already picked up the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity have scored even more: you get to choose another Ubisoft game free of charge. Your options are: Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Rayman Legends, or Just Dance 2015. If you’re thinking about picking up a Season Pass to take advantage of this, then you’re out of luck because Ubisoft has discontinued it.
There’s no release date for the DLC as yet. Those who have the Season Pass will continue to receive all future DLC as well as the platforming spin-off Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.
