Ubisoft says AC Unity’s ‘no face’ bug should now be fixed

Assassin's Creed Unity texture bug 1

Texture glitch traced to two specific PC graphics cards state the publisher

Players shouldn’t be affected by character models with missing faces on Assassin’s Creed: Unity any more according to Ubisoft

The bug which Ubisoft claims was only showing in the PC version of the game appears to have been caused by issues arriving from two specific graphics cards. The day one patch for Unity provided a fix for the glitch, so should no longer be an issue for players.

“There are a number of images circulating online of character models from Assassin’s Creed Unity missing textures, dubbed the “no face” bug,” state Ubisoft. “In order to find how players are encountering this issue we tested it rigorously and have discovered that this only occurs on PCs with one of two specific graphics cards, and in both cases the issue is resolved with the application of the Day 1 patch (as well as all future patches).

“This should not be affecting any players who are allowing their game to be automatically patched as recommended with updates as they are released.”

In what is proving to be a busy week for Ubisoft’s bug extermination developers, Ubisoft has previously detailed a third major patch update to address issues occurring across the platforms with matchmaking, gameplay, connectivity and the HUD.
