Assassin’s Creed Unity has just released, and while reviews cite that the main game is good, it is also layered with a lot of issues regarding performance. To add to that, Ubi is also getting roundly criticized for going overboard with monetization.
Performance issues exist on all three platforms the game was released in. Both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have incredibly slow framerate. On its part, he PC version has pop-in and lighting issues. Neogaffers have also catalogued smaller issues, like parts where the player’s face completely disappears, or crowds fail to randomize, to hilarious effect.
IGN editor Justin Davis opines that monetization has been so extensively incorporated into the game that it adversely affects the whole experience. To be clear, no content has been locked out with microtransactions. You can earn everything you can buy via normal play. However, the constant notifications and blocks to play do affect game experience.
