The highly-anticipated Assassin’s Creed Unity launched earlier this week, but it appears the successor to last year’s Black Flag is plagued with lots of annoying bugs that makes game fairly unplayable. The bizarre bugs have become the subject of mockery these past few days, however, Ubisoft promises to fix them with a single patch.
According to a few players who documented the glitches on YouTube, Unity has a number of errors like floating characters, missing faces, random hair physics, and crazed animations (watch clip above). Even Arno Dorian, the game’s main character has been reported walking on air and falling through the earth at times.
On Thursday, Ubisoft acknowledged some of those errors and will fix the following ones in the latest patch.
– Arno falling through the ground.
– Game crashing when joining a co-op session.
– Arno getting caught inside of hay carts.
– Delay in reaching the main menu screen at game start.
In addition, Ubisoft will also rollout another patch in the near future to fix frame rate issues, graphical and collision issues, matchmaking co-op issues, and helix credits issues. Lastly, the fix will also address an issue with AMD CPU and GPU configurations on the PC version of the game.
As you can see, Unity has enough problems that you may want to wait until the game is completely fixed before making the expensive purchase. Personally, I would hold on for now and invest in Far Cry 4, which seems to be less problematic.
