"When it launched back in November, Assassin’s Creed: Unity was hardly met with the warmest of receptions. Building up to release, it looked as though Ubisoft would genuinely steer the series in a new direction, coinciding with the game’s exclusivity to new consoles. The end result, however, was far from the ravishing display we saw spread throughout Unity’s promotional material.
Wracked by an onslaught of silly glitches and game-breaking bugs, the series’ latest outing soon became somewhat of a laughing stock – at least among those who saw the funny side. Others were duly outraged of course, forcing Ubisoft to issue a number of formal apologies and even discontinue the game’s season pass. Fortunately, those who had already bought into the advance scheme were compensated with a free game."
