Developer Ubisoft Montreal has a long slog of fixing bugs and communicating expectations before gamers are going to be willing to look past how bad it bungled the launch of Assassin’s Creed Unity for Xbox One. Last week the company got the ball rolling with a concise and clear blog about its plans to fix the game. Today it took to that same blog to announce the second patch for owners of the Xbox One version.
The second patch began rolling out to Xbox One owners with digital and disc-based copies of Assassin’s Creed Unity earlier today, according to the Assassin’s Creed Unity Live Update Blog. This appears to be the patch that rolled out to PS4 users last week. It includes, fixes for main character Arno falling through the ground, game crashes when loading co-operative multiplayer, overly long loading screens when accessing the game’s main screen and hay carts that Arno couldn’t get out of.
All Xbox One owners should find that their system has downloaded the update the next time they’re on — provided that their using the system’s lower power mode. Otherwise, they’ll be prompted to download the update by Xbox Live the moment they open the game and have a stable internet connection.
Assassin’s Creed Unity launched last week to middling reviews — mostly because reviewers found it to be extremely buggy. I can confirm that we’ve halted our review of the game after losing progress twice over the weekend. Hopefully, Ubisoft will keep the updates coming.
