Assassin’s Creed Unity PC workarounds and updates

Assassins Creed Unity - 02

There’s still a lot to be done with the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity but these workarounds may help.

As we head into the weekend, and  with the latest patch being released yesterday, Ubisoft continue to investigate issues on all platforms. Their update blog is at least trying to keep players up to date with progress which might give PC gamers some comfort knowing that at least one day it will work flawlessly.

The latest updates from Ubi now include a few workarounds for PC issues which include:

Not able to progress past Sequence 1 / Memory 3 if you started to play as you were downloading the game

  • Allow the game to finish downloading and installing. Once finished, you’ll be able to go on within the game. You can check the download progression within your platform.

Frame rate issues.

  • If playing single player, we suggest that you disconnect from your internet connection (wifi or network cable).It could potentially improve frame rate.

Matchmaking co-op issues

  • How to join friends in a Co-op game?
    • Invite a player into your gameworld. NOTE: don’t be in a mission, be in free roam.
    • The player joins.
    • Manually start a coop mission by going to the marker on the map, or joining the coop mission from the progress tracker.
    • Coop will work.

Ubi-collectibles codes might be invalid when redeemed on http://acinitiates.com/promotions

What to do until this is fixed?

  • Please ask a question on our Support site support.ubi.com after login and choosing your platform so our support staff can provide help

Companion App

These are all temporary fixes but there are other issues such as Uplay still being terrible, graphical collision issues, unable to launch the game, and general crashes which are all being worked on still. PC gamers are in no way in the clear with this game yet.

With Far Cry 4 due out next week and the PC review version now being held back until at least Monday, I seriously hope that Ubisoft has learned something from this Assassin’s Creed Unity mess and actually release a game that works.

If you are experiencing problems with Unity then keep an eye on this page and we’ll also do our best to keep you all updated.
