Ubisoft's guide to everything wrong with Assassin's Creed Unity

New, 44 comments

Ubisoft player experience manager Xhane compiled a list today of all known issues in Assassin's Creed Unity on all platforms. The list includes both problems players are still dealing with and some that have been fixed.

The list of more than two dozen bugs and glitches are sorted by platform and some include workarounds. More importantly, all of them include details on where Ubisoft stands on getting the issues fixed.

Among the problems listed for all platforms are frame rate issues, graphical and collision issues, matchmaking issues, matchmaking problems, trouble using Ubi-collectible code and Uplay services and problems with the companion app and initiates.

When you dig into the platforms you get specific issues like Arno getting stuck in hay carts and falling through the ground on PC and PlayStation 4 (both of which have been fixed, according to the post), and Helix Credits not working correctly on the Xbox One.

It's a solid attempt at keeping players informed of the timing for fixes for the game, and even some of the ways to get around the bugs. What it isn't is an explanation of how this game was launched so broken. While Ubisoft said in a statement to the BBC yesterday, and later confirmed to Polygon, that online games are harder to test before they are live, it still rings a little hollow in the face of the overwhelming number of basic problems with the game.
