‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ Online Stability Finally Addressed, Co-op Games Improved In Upcoming Patch

Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, the latest installment of Ubisoft’s adventure series has received several updates to try to fix a large number of in-game bugs that have plagued users from launch. Continuing to work towards their goal of addressing every single issue that players have been experiencing, Ubisoft announced on their official blog that the fourth patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity will be available to download on Monday, December 15, for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.

While the developer has yet to release the full change log for the new update, it was revealed that Patch 4 for Assassin’s Creed Unity is intended to finally improve general stability as well as online connectivity. After Monday’s update, gamers should notice a lower frequency of disconnects and addition fixes to a multitude of other matchmaking issues that has made it difficult to play Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s online multiplayer up to this point.

A patch dedicated specifically to addressing the game’s online issues is what many users have been waiting for. Even Ubisoft themselves has suggested in the past that it would be best for fans to only engage in the singleplayer sections of Assassin’s Creed Unity until the problems surrounding the title’s online co-op mode can be addressed. According to a previous report by the Inquisitr, the developer has even told players not to put anyone in their contacts list within Assassin’s Creed Unity since having names stored inside the title’s friends list can create problems for both online as well as offline play.

Ubisoft also released updated details this week for the free Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass DLC offer that the studios is providing to everyone who owns the game. The bonus is being provided as an apology for the title’s many launch issues. The developer reiterated that all who purchase the game, in the past or future, will receive all of the planned DLC from the Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass for no additional charge.

Anyone who actually paid for the season pass prior to November 25 will instead receive a separate game from Ubisoft’s library as compensation. The list of approved titles includes most of the developer’s recent releases such as Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, and last year’s Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass will receive their free game no later than March 15.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is now available only on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The update will hopefully finally allow players to reliably enjoy the title’s cooperative gameplay as the patch is scheduled to improve online stability starting December 15.
