Those of you who have been holding off on playing Assassin’s Creed: Unity due to its frame rate and performance issues may finally be able to play the game next week as Ubisoft has announced that Patch 4 will finally be arriving on Monday the 15th of December.
Patch 4 has been in the making for a long time and will finally address issues with performance and stability. Ubisoft’s development team has been working to reduce the number of DirectX draw calls and prioritize how parts of the game load in order to squeeze more performance out of the hardware. It’s taken a few weeks but hopefully the patch will provide a significant improvement.
Other issues to be fixed include online matchmaking and connectivity. Ubisoft notes that AMD users specifically should ensure that they have the latest drivers installed for optimal performance.
In case you missed it earlier this week, Ubisoft also announced that those who bought the Assassin’s Creed season pass will also be eligible for a free game. The website that you can claim from will be going live on an unspecified day next week and you can choose from Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends and Just Dance 2015.
