Amid Assassin’s Creed Unity’s gameplay issues, Ubisoft offers free DLC and game as compensation
Ubiosft Montreal & Toronto CEO, Yannis Mallet writes apology to fans, formally recognizing the technical gaffes that Assassin’s Creed Unity contains among the game’s launch.
“Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team.” – Ubisoft Update (11/26/14)
The stability of the game has been struggling over all platforms with inexplicable framerate drops and a variety of glitches and bugs holding back a smooth gameplay experience. The most prominent issues may be on PC though. Ubisoft has been notorious for poorly optimized PC ports, but even this game was notably worse than anyone could have expected.
As the developer works to repair the problems with the Assassin’s Creed, they’ll be looking to win the support back from fans with a free DLC (Dead Kings) for all players and a free game in its entirety for those who purchase Ubisoft’s Season Pass.
The choices available:
- The Crew
- Far Cry 4
- Watch Dogs
- Assassin’s Creed Black Flag
- Rayman Legends
- Just Dance 2015
Ubisoft isn’t skimping on the games they’re offering with Far Cry 4 and The Crew available — two high-profile games that have just recently been released as well. (More info on the compensation here.)
Though the offers are great, it’s more likely that fans, especially PC gamers, will be hoping for just a better optimized game over all else.
