If I'm in game lets say in a city that I just aquired a flag that saved the game

PC Version (obviously, its in the thread title)

2.) Exit Memory
3.) Exit Animus
4.) Escape

8.) Exit
9.) Exit Game confirmation


If I'm in game lets say in a city that I just aquired a flag that saved the game

If you're running in DX10 mode you just have to to alt-enter to exit fullscreen mode and then close the window like you would any other. It's very fast and responsive and I've never had it hang. The game simply closes and that's that.

Yah it's really effing convoluted to exit. Just give us a Exit to Desktop button, damn.

Just hit alt-F4 :P

Alt+F4 works but the developers should have implanted a better exit option.

Alt+F4 works like a charm. Exits in under a second.

I was worried it could corrupt my save files at first, but as long as you don't do it while it says "saving" I guess you're fine. I've made some backups though just to be sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Besides it crashes so often (at least once every 2 hours) this way HAS to work :P

i really hope they will release a patch soon to fix the crashes and a new way to exit :P

I think its just the game itself.

For the PS3; I'm sure thats how you would end it too.


etc etc

But it just so happens that with the PS3 you can hold down the PS Button and choose to quit the game

So I'm thinking theres nothing the Devs could do; oh well

Someone made a video of it and posted it on youtube:

It's hilariously bad...

Nice vid. Love the music!
Nice sarcasm!

First time I wanted to quit, it took me very long to find out how to do that!!
Good job, ubi. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
