Ubisoft has just posted an update regarding the third patch that’s in the works for Assassin’s Creed: Unity, as the game is still plagued by NPC, framerate and online connectivity issues.
The list of fixes provided Ubisoft are not final according to the blog post, but rather they described the general areas of the game that they are looking at fixing to make sure each area of the game that’s fixed is looked at equally.
- 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.
Ubisoft understands that the patch won’t address all the issues, but they’re hoping that patch number three will dramatically improve the game experience.
