There’s no way that anyone who pays attention to weekly happenings in video games denies that developer Ubisoft entertainment isn’t having a very bad public relations week thanks to Assassin’s Creed Unity. The game launched to some pretty rough reviews thanks to some serious glitches and bugs bugs, despite its next-generation graphics and cinematic story telling. Today, Ubisoft took some decent steps toward fixing its Assassin’s Creed Unity problem There’s a new update blog tailor-made for fans and Ubisoft says its rethinking its review policies.
Ubisoft confirmed that it was rethinking how it distributes review copies of games to the BBC earlier today saying, “We are working to adapt our services and communications with consumers accordingly, both by changing the way we work with reviewers and by offering customers open betas or other early access to some games, all so that they have the information they need and want.”
That same Ubisoft spokesperson also called out Destiny and The Crew as two other games who had review embargoes that didn’t lift until the day they were released, just like Assassin’s Creed Unity. Many suspect that Assassin’s Creed Unity reviews were held back by Ubisoft because they would have damaged first day sales.
In a new Assassin’s Creed Unity Live Update Blog update for today, Ubisoft says it has teams hard at work on an update to stop game hero Arno from getting stuck in hay wagons, stop players from falling through the ground and co-operative play crashes. When this second update will be available remains unclear. There has already been one update to Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is only for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
