Assassin´s Creed Unity received a massive Day-One Patch that is now available, including Changelog.
Damn. They fixed a lot of things. I wonder how bad it'll be for people without an Internet connection.
You'll miss out on the community events and coop missions, but there is no telling how much of the game is dependent on these until the game launches and more people complete it. Judging by Assassin Creed IV (it had community events - white whales and additional chests) you won't be missing much, but again the coop missions are the unknown factor. If you are referring to people not getting the patch, it may be a glitchy mess, but even people with the crappiest of connections that play offline will surely take the time to download the patch.
After watching a few different streams for this game today, I have come to the conclusion that Ubisoft should have delayed Unity for another few months. Character navigation is buggy, loading times are long, A.I is absolutely crap and the frame rate is all over the place. As someone that's enjoyed almost every game in the series, unity looks rather disappointing.
900MB patch for a 900parity game. Makes sense.
Where was the changelog? I must be blind because I couldn't find it
daaaang. good stuff! :)
That list.. unfinished game at it's best. If we didn't have the internet, think of how screwed we would be.
in the days of dial up most games had to be finished. Technology doesnt improve everything unfortunatly
True, I'm not all that happy with video-games that need patched to work as promised, I recall MGS4 having no updates at all, until the trophy patch of course, and DMC4 as well, but other than that games usually take a good while to be updated before played. Miss the good ol' days, put in the disc and go, glitches were rare back then too.
I wouldn't say glitches were rare, infact there are lots going all the way back to the Atari 2600, but for the most part they were not game breaking. Now if you play an unpatched game, you will probably be lucky to complete the game without it crashing numerous times or something going horribly wrong (game save corruption etc.)
So, let me get this straight.... They aren't allowed to work on the bugs after it's gone gold? Stop fu*king whining about it. 99% of people who give a shit about Assassins Creed have an internet connection.
shouldn't have "gone gold" if it wasn't finished. but this happens more and more.
Remember how buggy AC3 was at launch? That game was a mess.
Except anyone with a PS4 or One HAS to have Internet for the system to start. It has only been a year or have you forgot both require the Internet to download a day one patch?
Except that isn't true. I know someone who bought a PS4 last week who doesn't have an internet connection. He is playing it fine
xbox 1 is the only console that you need internet . when it first turns on it downloads an update that removes the always online thing
Guess you and @TheWatercooler forgot about the 308mb day one update for the ps4 its funny how some people have selective memories
Excuse me, but could you please show us where the PS4 day-one patch was needed to play games? http://www.polygon.com/2013... Oh wait, it wasn't...
ps4 doesn't need internet
Except the PS4 doesn't require internet to play video games out of the box.
1mb for every P
Soooo... I'm guessing this fixes the horrendous pop in that we've seen in every video so far?
The pop-in isn't that bad. Some of you are so dramatic. I saw similar pop-in in Infamous Second Son, yet that's an exclusive so nobody wants to criticize it. Let's just all nitpick AC Unity to death though. Hell, the shadows in Infamous Second Son wouldn't pop into the higher resolution shadow maps until you were like 5 feet from them. It was pretty ridiculous. But, yeah, let's act like open world games haven't all had pop-in.
I have the game on PS4. I played it like 3 hours after this patch it's good very good game actually but my god the drop in FPS is so painful when there's a lot of crowd it's like running on 15FPS i hope it will be fixed on release.
Wow this is a huge list but im glad they have a fix for release day
Best exaple is Halo TMCC, the nets not ready for a 15GB patch, and because 80% of the worlds on fiber, devs don't care. and yes you can play PS4 without the update/internet, I had to when the EU servers were really busy at about 1:10AM on launch night just put in KZ and played.
I love patches for videogames. It means that developers care about their customers.
i can't see the change log for some reason, what's in it?
