Assassin's Creed Unity texture bug 1

Ubisoft are still tackling Assassin's Creed Unity's bugs, and they've detailed another list of what they're looking to fix next.

If you bought Assassin's Creed Unity last week you will no doubt have encountered some of the game's issues that have been popping up. Over on their live AC Unity updates blog the devs have detailed their larger Patch 3 update.

Patch 3 will be the largest update so far, and it will tackle the following issues:

  • Gameplay: this includes bugs like Arno getting stuck on certain areas of the map (including a few more hay carts), problems with getting into/out of cover, character animation bugs, and general camera problems
  • AI & Crowd: in this category are problems with NPC animations, crowd events, and crowd stations, NPC navigation issues, as well as bugs related to NPCs detecting Arno’s activities in various situations
  • Matchmaking & Connectivity: this covers a number of issues related to co-op play, including bugs with joining games in-progress and problems that happen during host migration
  • Menus & HUD: fixes in this category will address missing details in certain menus, problems with some of the mission objective and co-op update pop-ups, localization inconsistencies, as well as some of the issues with menus and pop-ups overlapping each other
  • General Stability: this includes fixes for a number of crash situations we've identified in both campaign and co-op modes.

The issues surrounding frame rate performance are also being looked at, Ubisoft has said. More details on what the devs are doing with that will be announced 'in the coming days.'

Patch 2 was released for the game on PS4 and PC on Friday, and should be rolling out to the Xbox One any moment now. It included fixes for crashes when joining co-op and players falling through the floor.
