There’s no denying that some of the glitches found within Assassin Creed Unity are the stuff that nightmares are made of (look up a couple of these videos on YouTube and you won’t sleep for a week). Fortunately, Ubisoft has not given up the fight just yet.
In a recent update posted to the game’s official community site, the team has revealed that their latest fix (dubbed Patch 5) hopes to remedy several key performance and stability issues still plaguing the release. It will also be unlocking content related to the companion app, no longer making it a requirement (a welcomed move to some).
Here is the complete rundown of everything that Patch 5 looks to address:
Stability & performance
- Fixed numerous random crashes both on Campaign and Coop
Save game & Progression
- Fixed gear and outfit rewards getting relocked
- Added users profile corrector to resolve companion synchronization issues
- Made Initiate and companion app exclusive content accessible to all players
