It looks like Ubisoft may have cancelled the DLC season pass for Assassin's Creed Unity.
Rumor has been confirmed by Ubisoft.
Taking this with a grain of salt. Are there any issues with the season pass going on? They could have taken them down to fix an error, or the disappearance could be the result of an error.
Dat article image Doe....
I know right? lol but really, this is because support for the game is going to cause Ubisoft to lose money, since so few people bought AC:U. It was poorly optimized on every console, and there's just too much competition from other better optimized games this holiday season that anything extra should quite frankly be free.
Good on them though. They really did the best thing a dev can do to say sorry.
Picked up AC Unity Gold Edition on the Hong Kong PSN last night, after it had already been taken down from EU PSN, for €55. AC Unity, all the future DLC & Far Cry 4. Saved around €120 on the normal digital pricing!
It's confirmed. http://assassinscreed.ubi.c... Regardless of all the deserved hate Ubi has got in the past few weeks, this apology is unprecedented. "To show our appreciation for your continued support, we’re making the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC free for everyone. For Season Pass holders, we will also offer the choice of one additional game from a selection of Ubisoft titles for free." The Crew Far Cry 4 Watch Dogs Assassin’s Creed Black Flag Rayman Legends Just Dance 2015
I knoW, I saw. Thanks though.
Far Cry 4 for free?! can't beat that.
Now I am pissed I didnt buy AC:U at launch lol. B1G1 free.
Just the fact that they put Far Cry 4 on there makes me want to give them at least a little more respect.
Ubisoft credibility +15. I hope this sets a precedence in how f ups are handled by publishers.
Yea, they've went over and beyond to address the issues and show their apology. That's admirable. To be clear, it is admirable to own to your mistake and take steps to rectify it at their expense. Good stuff and a good start to rebuilding the damage caused to Ubi's name.
Just my opinion, but they screwed up a number of times... Had it not finally gotten severe gamer lash back, they wouldn't be offering anything. It finally hurt them financially enough that they "feel bad" for releasing broken games, so I'm taking this apology with a grain of salt. The underlying issue is releasing broken games, how about we fix that while we are all being sorry? And for me, no, they haven't earned an ounce of extra credibility. Say what you're going to do, and do what say. If not, I don't have time for you...
nice to see Ubisoft actually having a conscience here. hopefully this means good things with the division, take your damn time with that game and dont F*** it up.
that is a sweet deal, 1 premium title & 1 dlc.
that's how you do it. take note 343
but but but...according to some people over here, ACU is not broken and the issues are way overblown! yeah...right! even Ubi is giving up on it, THAT's how broken it is. but giving away free games as compensation for Season pass is just like store credits though. it's an action that says, "we are wrong but we still want to keep your money. so please take any of these "unbroken" games for your money!" The Crew - the beta alone screams "DON'T BUY ME!". the generic story with overused plot and most importantly, the terrible, TERRIBLE car handling and physics made me want to puke! FC4 - no comment. WD - overhyped and for those wanting to play it, they have it already. ACBF - AC fan most probably have this already too. the only logical reason people even by ACU is because AC4 was decent/good. RL - great game but didn't sell too well although available on so many platforms because it's apparent that not many are fans of side scrollers anymore. JD2015 - SMH! open up your eyes people, there's nothing about any reputation or respect or conscience being redeemed here by Ubi. they f*cked up and they are taking your rights for a refund!
Hell yeah, Just Dance 2015 for free.
"nice to see Ubisoft actually having a conscience here." Once a company reaches a certain size everything they do is aimed towards financial gain, no matter how much they try and dress it up to look like a good will gesture, a gift or a 'great deal'.
Should've mentioned I was sarcastic about just dance.
F ubi. I fear for the devision.
Ubisoft makes The Division?? dammit... Either way this is very generous of them.
I fear for our future.
The Division isn't developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
Finally ubisoft doing something right this year, I hope they can continue this way
for people who doesn't know why that happened just look to this poor guy how he struggling to finish the game he is a true fan and Ubisoft must respect thoes gamers>> http://www.youtube.com/watc...
why not believe it? It was kinda not received well and probably didnt sell that much considering its only on next gen consoles and not the old ones. They probably didnt want to bother making that much DLC for the game when they dont have a guarantee of easy money.
the title is wrong. THe first DLC is free for everyone, anyone with a season pass gets another Ubi game for free.. They have a small selection of recent games including far cry. Its a good gesture, but they should address games launching buggy
Probably just the easiest way to reimburs people for the first DLC
Hopefully we all get free DLC for the game
What happened was that Ubisoft accidentally charged too little. They meant for the season pass to be $69.99
lol Even more than the actual game.
Yeah, they really felt their glitches were of a quality level that they could charge for them as features. I guess some people can't take a joke? Dem Disagrees. lol
Meh, its N4G man, people take my comments seriously all the time even though I think they look totally ridiculous and sarcastic.
Disagrees, because it's a shit joke
That's a good list of free games if you ask me. Still shouldn't be necessary but it makes the whole thing a little easier to take.
Is says Far cry? There's no way they're giving away Far cry 4 like that, it could be far cry 3 but there is no far cry 3 on next gen consoles. They haven't officially announced which games so let's see.
Read http://assassinscreed.ubi.c... and click on the details for season pass holders. It's going to be free for them.
^^ Wow that's crazy, so basically you'll be getting far cry 4 for $30, plus the free kings DLC.
Thanks but no thanks.
are you retarded?
So... what happens to the DLC that would have come with the Season Pass? Are they going to just make a stand alone game with it now?
I believe they're giving away 1 of the 3 DLCs included in the Season Pass. And giving all Season Pass owners a free game. Does this mean all future Season Pass purchasers will be paying more for only two DLCs?
Yeah. I'm not sure if they're going to make them, if they're going to redo the season pass, or what. The message wasn't very informative in regards to the other DLC expected with the season pass.
You won't be able to purchase the season pass anymore, they've discontinued it. Anyone who already bought will be given this stuff, and I think the remaining 2 DLCs will have to be bought separately, I'm not sure how they'll handle that.
@spicelicka Interesting. The China one sounded promising.
They pay the £24 or whaterver it is for the season pass. Nothing else changes. You just get a free game as poopsed to the free 'Dead Kings'
Season Pass Holders will still get the China Game for free in addition to the first DLC and the free game as was confirmed in the official Ubi-Post.
The crew is a choice for season pass buyers as the free game?! Damn! Not bad!
Yup, not bad, until that game turns out even glitchy and buggier than Unity of course.
How do I get my free game?
http://assassinscreed.ubi.c... Am I eligible to receive a free Ubisoft game? If you purchased the Season Pass or Assassin’s Creed Unity Gold Edition (which includes the Season Pass), you are eligible to choose one free game from among a select list of Ubisoft titles.* These are: ◦The Crew ◦Far Cry 4 ◦Watch Dogs ◦Assassin’s Creed Black Flag ◦Rayman Legends ◦Just Dance 2015 We are currently setting up the system to process this offer. We will provide an update on how to claim your free game soon.
I'm thinking, if someone was to buy just the seasons pass right now for $30 from somewhere, without getting Unit, they'd be able to get Far cry 4 for $30 practically?
props to ubi for doing this
LOL yet another thing broken / no working by Ubisoft. Ubisoft - the EA of the next generation. So glad I don't support this company as all they are about is regurgitating the same game every year, bullshotting, downgrading, "micro" transactions ($99.99) to open a chest is just ABSURD! and trying to deceive customers (review embargo 10 hours before the game launched)
Guess am getting the Crew for free. Sweet
Ubisoft is now another corporate stodge. Congrats you have now achieved the same level of bs as EA and Activision. These three companies are ruining gaming. Gamers, stop buying their recycled crap every year.No more Assassins Creed, no more COD,no more Madden....STOP THE CYCLE !!!
Why? Sorry, but COD AW, FC4 and AC Unity have been enjoyable games for me. Along with Alien Isolation, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Divinity Original Sin, Dragon Age Inquisition and Shadow of Mordor I'd have to say that they are some of the best games of the year for me. People act like being a sequel in a long standing franchise automatically makes a game bad. It doesn't. People act like all these companies do is yearly sequels. They don't. About half the games they release are new IPs. I think a mix of well-liked established franchises and new IPs is ideal. I don't want either to the exclusion of the other.
Someone explain to me why I brought a £55 bugged game and get dlc free where as if I brought a £23 season pass most content not out yet I get a free game. Doesn't make sense I would of thought this would of been the other way around.
A greedy, conniving a**hole is still a greedy, conniving a**hole, whether they give you a Christmas present or not.
That's good of Ubisoft, now Microsoft need to get Halo Reach and ODST remastered and give us those games free, or at the very least extend the Halo 5 beta.
Result of poor sales and very poor season pass pre-orders. Just goes to show you what happens when consumers vote with their wallets.
Good move from Ubi. They cannot deny the problems with the game and it is good that they are very vocal about what they do to fix it and so on and this is just a step in the right direction to show customers some respect and to, well, maybe not completely regain the consumers trust, but it does help to regain some of it.
Serious damage control.
Wow! They put far cry 4 in that list... Kinda wish I got ac now! Shit happens I guess and that to me is a big enough sorry even if I wasn't apart of it....
Free game yeah!!! all is forgiven.. You guys deserve to be robbed blind.
OK "gamers" The reason they are doing this is to cover their asses so none of you sue them, or worse still sue the console makers who certified this game. You realize both Sony and Microsoft signed these games off as fine to publish on their consoles? There was some serious sh-t done this last week but you would all rather complain about gamergate and review scores. How about console makers certifying broken games to increase sales of their consoles? Don't care about consumer values now.. as long as you are winning the console war...
??? ???---- 11QW WE r always.. WINNING....................... ........
Good to see. Weather this is a heart felt apology or just a measure to save their reputation it doesn't matter really. What matters is that gamers voices were heard, and something was done about it. Ubisoft are not the only guys to mess up i
