Ubisoft working to stop Arno's endless fall, hay cart prisons in Assassin's Creed Unity

New, 61 comments

Yesterday we pointed out some of the wonderful glitches created by Assassin's Creed Unity in this collection of videos. Today, Ubisoft is detailing how they're working to rid the game of some of those issues.

At the top of its list, the developer says, is preventing protagonist Arno from falling through the ground and getting caught inside hay carts. Other first-wave fixes include stopping game crashes when joining co-op sessions and the delay in reaching the main menu screen at game start.

After that next update hits consoles and PC, Ubisoft plans to start working on other issues that have been reported to the company by gamers. Little things like frame rate issues, graphical and collision issues, matchmaking co-op issues and Helix Credits issues.

So besides everything, it sounds like Unity had a pretty solid launch.

Noticeably missing from the blog update is any sort of explanation of how the publisher managed to allow such a troubled game to go on sale. We've reached out to Ubisoft for an interview about the launch and game glitches.
