Assassin's Creed: Unity Summary
Does Unity heroically storm the barricades or find its head in a wicker basket?
This week's latest patch for Assassin's Creed: Unity is no longer happening as a new update fromexplains they want more time to go over the changes. Performance improvements will take longer.
Apparently they are going to "refurbish the Paris map" and that's why it needs a delay. Patch 4 is highly expected to address the horrendous framerate issues plaguing the Parisian populace.
The next significant patch forbeleaguered Assassin's Creed: Unity is going to release for all platforms Monday, December 15th. What's exactly in Patch 4 is yet to be disclosed in a changelog.
However they say it generally goes after stability and performance issues, as well as online matchmaking and connectivity, as well as other fixes for bugs etc. They also advise to install the latest AMD drivers.
The next major patch for Assassin's Creed: Unity is being worked on by, and they've revealed some of the 'top issues' they will be addressing, or at least tracking
They expect Patch 4 to "rectify most of the remaining issues" for players on PC as well as console. A major bug right now are crashes after loading a save with 'most instances eliminated'.
This would be funny - really funny - if it wasn't just 'yet another' damning indictment of today's . The online racer The Crew has received a day one patch in order that players can actually join a crew.
Now, I don't dabble in legalise or courtroom sorcery, but when your game is called The Crew and yet the finished product is actually broken that you can't actually join a crew...
UPDATE: The lighting 'downgrade' on the patched PS4 version of the game is not limited to just one platform, it has been. It's also the result of a bug linked to the 'Time of Day' setting in the game. It's unlikely this has been addressed in the PC patch yet to release either.
Original story follows:
According to those who've got their PS4 versions of Assassin's Creed: Unity patched, the whopping 2GB update that targets performance issues also 'downgrades' the visuals - specifically the lighting.
It hasn't been confirmed as of yet but images are surfacing with rather damning comparisons. Troubling is that the PC is due a performance update which is yet to go live. Will it follow suit?
