‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ Patch 5 Improves Co-Op Stability And Online Matchmaking On Xbox One, PS4

Console gamers can now enjoy a new patch that was made available for download earlier today on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Assassin’s Creed Unity. Ubisoft announced the release of Patch 5 for the latest installment of their popular series on Wednesday in a post from the official website for the game. The newly launched update for Assassin’s Creed Unity is now live on both of the new console offerings from Microsoft and Sony.

However, PC players will have to wait a little while longer to receive the most recent Assassin’s Creed: Unity improvements. Thankfully, it won’t be a long wait, as Ubisoft expects the update to release for the PC edition of the game later this week.

Patch 5 for Assassin’s Creed Unity corrects of series of known issues that users may have encountered within the game, ranging from texture display issues to fixes for missions bugs that could halt progression in the game’s main story campaign. Assassin’s Creed Unity users should also experience improved server performance and better online matchmaking after applying the latest update.

Today’s new Assassin’s Creed Unity patch also removes the need for players to connect to a companion app to unlock previously exclusive in-game items. This means that players can now open all chests within the game without having to access any outside programs.

“Additionally, we will be unlocking all content exclusive to Initiates and the Companion App, including both blue and gold chests. Players can still progress on the Companion App, they just will no longer be required to complete content to unlock in-game chests.”

Ubisoft also revealed the following complete patch notes for the new Assassin’s Creed Unity update on their official forums. This gives gamers a full rundown of all the fixes and changes were introduced in Patch 5.
