Over this past weekend, Ubisoft released a few details concerning what’s been going on for Assassin’s Creed Unity and the problems facing those who purchased the Season Pass.
In that same post, Ubisoft talked about what it has planned for the next big patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity. Patch 4 is what it has been dubbed, and the company talked briefly about its “top priority issues.” Here’s a brief snippet that rundown.
- Game crashes after loading your save: We’re devoting a lot of attention to this one and we have a workaround (try taking your system offline and reload your save, you should be able to play offline). Most instances of this crash will be eliminated in Patch 4, but if you do still encounter this issue after the Patch is applied please file a Customer Support ticket to help us identify what your issue is so we can create a fix for it.
- Error CE-34878-0: Similar to the crash mentioned above, the game freezes or crashes after loading your save. This particular error message is exclusive to PS4. This issue should be resolved in Patch 4.
- Initiates legacy recognition issues: Many of these issues have been resolved, but we’ve noted that it could still take several days for all of your progress from past games to be fully updated. If after five days you still don’t see your progress accurately reflected on the site, please file a ticket with Customer Support so we can more closely examine this issue.
They conclude their discussion of Patch 4 by saying that they “expect Patch 4 to rectify most of the remaining issues our players have been reporting.” They encourage players to keep a vigilant watch for future bugs, but we might be looking at a mostly fixed Assassin’s Creed.
I stopped playing about halfway through thanks to constant crashes and bugs. Maybe the release of Patch 4 shall mark my return. How about you?
