The new Assassin’s Creed launch has not gone as smoothly as planned, with Ubisoft working to fix a plethora of bugs found across all platforms after the game’s release this week.
An ongoing list of known bugs and fixes has been posted on the official Ubisoft forums for the game. These include framerate issues, crashes, UPlay sync errors, and graphic collision issues. However, developers did note that PC issues were not related to AMD cards, as was previously thought.
The series is one of the publisher’s tentpole franchises with nearly-annual releases and strong sales across multiple platforms. The last incarnation, Black Flag, received strong reviews from both users and critics for its naval combat and engaging lead, voiced by Constantine‘s Matt Ryan. While bugs are common upon release for some games, the current release marks a significant snag in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
“We apologize for any confusion and want to be clear that we are working with all of our hardware partners to address known issues that exist across various PC configurations,” a Ubisoft community manager wrote on the forums. “We care deeply about a smooth and enjoyable Assassin’s Creed experience and we will continue to update customers as these issues are fixed.”
This is not the first time Ubisoft has come under fire for Unity. Earlier this year, developers were heavily criticized for removing a female protagonist from the game, citing that her model would have required significant resources to create.
