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.
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”
