Headline Of The Week

You might remember in the last weekly news update, I was discussing how a number of games recently released had run into criticism for being extremely buggy; the most high profile case being Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassins Creed: Unity. In a rather drastic move Ubisoft have discontinued the Season Pass DLC for the game, offering one of a selection of five games for free after an open letter of apology to fans by CEO Yannis Mallet.

Seems legitimate...those Frenchmen sure are limber

Anyone who purchased the season pass will now be gifted one of either Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed: Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Just Dance 2015, Far Cry 4 or the upcoming open world racer The Crew, while everyone who bought Unity will also be able to pick up the Dead Kings DLC for free. That’s a pretty sweet compromise for those who haven’t got Legends or Far Cry yet.

For reference, Mallet said the following in his open letter:

“Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues…I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential…We’ve been working hard to fix the problems players are reporting, and the patches we have released so far have resolved many of them”



Headline Of The Week

It’s been one of, if not the busiest release week of the year for video games these past seven days (although next week might give it a run for its money with the likes of Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4 and Grand Theft Auto V all looking for a snug place in your disc drives), but the headlines have been dominated by reports of poor performance across the board on several big name titles. Most notably, matchmaking playlists for Halo: The Master Chief Collection have ran into server issues, both the 3DS and Wii U Sonic Boom games have been ripped to shreds for game breaking exploits and uninspiring gameplay…and there is the curious case of Assassins Creed: Unity – a AAA game released seemingly before it was finished.

Despite mostly positive reviews from the gaming press, Unity has been beset by a number of bugs and glitches across all platforms; developer Ubisoft Montreal have been attacked on pretty much all fronts for problems including players falling through the world allowing them to swim under Renaissance era Paris, characters grabbing onto invisible ledges, and most hilariously/horrifyingly character faces disappearing mid-cut scene.
