Well. Free stuff is always good.
But what about ULCs (3 extra missions. various items) which were also a part of Gold Edition? With GE discontinued there isnt any way to get everything in a single package, is it?

We are talking about all the Season Pass (China, and the items) or just The Dead Kings mission and no more?

I understood that only the DLC Dead Kings will be free. What happened to AC Chronicles China?
How will we be able to have it?

It will be sold separately (would be anyway, as it never was announced as SP exclusive).

I was happy with the apology, some companies might not have bothered. Most of the problems i had were fixed with the first few patches, so my game has been pretty fine. Cant wait to play the free DLC. Just hope they can fix the companion app and the initiates website, im still having problems with both.

Ok thanks Ubisoft, well done.
I bought the season pass but I'm not jelous if the dlc is now open for everyone, they too deserve it, and your game offer for the owners of the season pass is a nice way to reward the players who believed in this game and in the company from the start.
Btw, I have to say that all these optimization problems found in recent PC games are beyond the excusable, since it's a situation common to too many games of yours (e.g. Far Cry 4, even on a gtx 970), and a game for free, even if appreciated, does not fill the gap.
I hope this time you finally learned from your mistakes and I take your excuses, accepted, as a new starting point for your company.

I understand you want to give new-gen console owners new-gen games, but is AC Rogue too much to ask? Surely it would be justifiable on PC.

We bought AC to play AC. Else we woyld have bought your other games.

One question (though I asked on the blog post too):
I already own Black Flag, Watch Dogs and Far Cry 4 (been a busy boy this year) and I'm honestly not really interested in a platformer (Rayman Legends), a driving game (The Crew) or a dance game. It would be nice if there were other options, or the ability to substitute another older Ubisoft Game, or another non-Ubisoft game from the Uplay store that has a comparable value.

Still, it IS really, really thoughtful and generous of Ubisoft and I appreciate the gesture, even if I already own my favorite games from the list!

Rogue would be cool. I love the Assassin's Creed series, and despite a few problems (minor glitches and problems with acinitiates) and a few things I liked better in previous games (lock picking) I've really enjoyed ACU, to be honest.

I enjoy AC a lot more than driving games, dancing games or platformers, so something like Rogue would be awesome.

I'm thinking strongly about getting The Division and The Siege, but especially with The Division I'll probably be looking into a gold edition if there is one, rather than a vanilla game.

It would be cool to see Rogue added to this list.

I for one feel a little let down as I had decided to wait to buy the season pass until the DLC had been given release dates...Here in Australia it was 5-6am when this message was release and the season pass was removed from the store. That pretty much denied us any chance to get in on this deal. Of course it is my fault for not getting the pass a few days ago when I considered it (literally 2 days) but when the content was yet to be release it wasn't yet worth the money.

All in all congratulations to all the GE owners and people that had decided to get the season pass already. But I think they should have waited at least a few hours before removing it from the Uplay store. Season pass holders are not the the only loyal fans, there are a lot more loyal fans and I don't know if Dead Kings DLC for free really covers for that. Would have been nice to have had something like a final 6,12 or 24 hours to get a season pass to get in on this. And to be honest anyone that pre-ordered should be a part of this deal we are all loyal fans. Especially people that brought special editions of the game surely that is proof enough how much we love the series.

EDIT: If I was part of this lucky deal it would find myself 50/50 to see rogue added to this list. Yeah sure it would be cool but up against titles like Farcry 4 and the long awatied The Crew by driving game lovers. Rogue will arrive sometime in 2015 and as a ported game from console......those don't always go down so well I wouldn't choose it as my option with very much confidence. I might also add if ubisofts intended release date for it on PC is after march 2015 they can add it to the list without changing the date that this offer ends.

I'm not sure I understand your question. Do you mean if you choose The Crew, as a SP holder, do you still receive the Dead Kings DLC? If so, yes.

Honestly I'm no interested in other games but AC series. If Ubisoft wont offer ACR, we should have our refund instead of being forced to choose a game we dont want. We can buy ACU Chron and ACR separately. These might take about $70, instead of $90, which $30 SP we paid and $60 ACR
At least please, if Ubi won't offer a free ACR, then u might offer ACR fair enough with an extra amount

They can't possibly offer ACR... ACU is not played on XBox360/PS3, and they clearly said they distribute games on YOUR platform. It's kind of stupid if they offer ACR to someone that owns ACU on PC/PS4/XBOX1 anyway. Do you know how many stupid people exist? Many would get Rogue without thinking "Rogue is only on Xbox360 and PS3... wait, I don't own any of those.". Next? More trouble for Ubisoft. Just get Far Cry 4. It's totally enjoyable and you get a massive discount in this way. And you literally lose almost nothing... Why would they give you a refund if you still get most of the Season Pass' contents (if not all), plus an extra game?

I bought SP for the two DLCs, the exclusive missions and stuffs (which are weapons and gears) won't cost that much more than 5$, and i never use that stuffs. The DLCs worth fair enough for the $30 SP. AC Rogue will be released in "early 2015" (regard the ended date of offer is late March, u dont say the Early of Ubisoft is June 30). It should be March and they can offer it

And Far Cry 4, I'm no interested, since COD AW is better to enjoy. As Slembroccoli said, we buy AC to play AC (black flag is quite unfair comparing to Far Cry 4)

P/S: please dont force me and some others to enjoy games we don't want. I prefer COD series better than Far Cry, NFS better than The Crew, I dont enjoy Watch Dogs that much as well as GTA series, either dancing game, and dont know wth is rayaman Legends.
I bought ACU because I love AC games, I bought Gold Edition without considering, for I love AC games and want to support AC team. And last please, dont force players to enjoy games they don't want. Ubisolf cant just milk their AC fan because they love AC

Then at least PC players should be able to pick it, right? Since Rogue is being ported to PC.

And I don't see the harm in giving console players the option. Just explicitly state that it's for old-gen only.

I think they'll contact us later with details.

I don't want a refund. I'm happy with ACU, even though I've had some troubles (mainly with ACinitiates). I think it's quite generous of them to give us a game. I do hope though that the rest of the DLC content will eventually come.

You do realize and I quote "The deal for SP owners is not cross platform". So seeing as Rogue is currently PS3 and 360 only, with no official release date for it on PC the likely hood of Rogue becoming an option is basically zip. I doubt rogue for PC will be released before the end of this deal.....Now seeing as we're talking about Ubisoft, Rogue will probably not be released until after the deal ends we all know it just no one is saying it.....Rogue won't get added while everyone wants it they'll wait and milk players for money. Everyone wanting it and all these threads about it is even more reason not too add it....they see dollar signs.....potential profits for everyone that posts they want Rogue added as an option.

It's likely as u said. Ubisoft might wait until after the deal ended March 15, 2015. It's ******** if they announce ACR March 16, 2015 and release later.
Many SP owner want Rogue because they've already own AC4, FC4, and just want to play AC series. It's unfair if we're forced to choose the rest
Ubisoft milk their customers with force, then i'm not gonna support Ubisoft anymore, they never change

I bought AC Unity Gold for PC and I also would prefer AC Rogue for PC as a gift.
1. If we paid for AC it's reasonable to give us AC gift.
2. Rogue is one of the latest AC games, and probably most part of players haven't played it yet.
3. Definitly PC owners haven't preordered it yet.
4. As for me, I own AC BF Deluxe, Crew Gold, Watch Dogs Deluxe. I don't want FC4 or JD2015. As for Rayman Leggends, it's a good game, but since it about twice cheaper than ACU SP, it seems more like a poor refund rather than a gift.

AC Rogue PC PREORDER gift will be also a good solution!

First of all, what in the world does CoD, NFS and GTA have to do with anything? I agree a pre-order for Rogue might be a good compensation, but complaining about being offered games worth as much as 60€ for the price of a DLC worth a fragment of said price as compensation for having to endure a buggy yet well above playable game is just plain silly. This is an incredibly nice offer yet most people seem to take it for granted and then some.

Hmmm. Maybe I'm wrong, but for season pass holders, I don't THINK they're offering us a game to REPLACE the season pass. I think we'll STILL get the content. They're simply not going to sell any MORE season passes. They're offering a free gift of a DLC mission as a kind of "I'm sorry" gesture for the troubles people have had with Unity, but as SP holders will already be entitled to that mission, they're offering us a whole GAME as a peace offering.

So, it's not like we should be expecting the gift to equal the season pass. I THINK we'll still get that content, those of us who ordered it.

What do you think? Am I right or wrong?

One suggestion I might have is this:
If they can't offer us AC Rogue, perhaps they MIGHT be willing to let us substitute another UBISOFT game. For example, I already have FC4, ACIV, and WD, and to be honest, I'm not terribly interested in Rayman Legends or JD (but maybe The Crew. Not sure yet).

However, I WOULD be interested in AC Revelations. It's on my list of games I want to buy and I don't have it yet.

That said: I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth.

I'm quite touched by Ubisoft's offer, and it feels quite generous to ME largely because I haven't had very much to complain about with ACU, and on the contrary have had really a lot of FUN with the game. So I'm extremely grateful to Ubisoft for the thought.

Apologies accepted Ubisoft! Nice way to redeem yourself with the disgruntled fanbase. Guess some will be happier than others with the offer but I haven't seen EA games or the like give much compensation after a failed launch.

However it would be nice to know what your plans will be with the additional SP-content:
- AC China
- "Killed by science" - mission
- "The American prisoner" - mission
- "The chemical revolution" - mission -> nut much of an issue (covered by most preorders and available on Uplay)
- Additional weapons & gear

Will they be made available as:
- small DLC (5-10€ range)
- reward available with Uplay-points (as is the Chem revolution-mission)

On a personal note, I intended to buy the gold edition on launch day, as I have bought SP's and deluxe editions of previous AC-games every year.
But as there was no clear price advantage and seeing the long list of complaints I decided to postpone the SP and start with the basic version (my gaming PC is decent but not topnotch anymore). Luckily I hadn't faced much issues from the start as others have.

I understand the removal of the SP for obvious reasons, but doesn't take away the fact that a lot of people is still interested in the other content to get the full SP experience.

It's not cool to mention competitors of Ubisoft in their forum. Its okay if u dont know them. I agree that offer free games is a bit generous. Since Dead Kings DLC is free to all players who purchased ACU, then it's unfair to others who did purchase Season Pass. That's why Ubisoft offer free games for them. However, the problem is, we bought AC game, then we'are suppose to get offered with AC game. Notice that ACR is the latest, the same to AC4 but new story, new map, so why not ACR, an AC game we do enjoy

Yes you're right, and if people would bother to even read half of the e-mail that has been sent out they would know that, without a question, but I guess that's just too much to ask for. Basically, if you've bought the season pass/gold edition, you're getting dead kings for free plus an entire other game that would otherwise cost you a lot more.

Ubisoft, could we the players get the ability to deactivate skills that require Assassin Synch Points ingame, and use those points to unlock another skill, and so forth ? For example, if one player has spent 10 Assassin Synch Points ingame on the "Disguise" skill, and decides he no longer needs that skill, but the "Assassin Cache" skill that also costs 10 Assassin Synch Points, since he has become a higher level, it would be nice if he had the ability to deactivate the former skill, in this case "Disguise", obtain back those 10 points, and spend them to another skill, in this case "Assassin Cache" skill. With this idea, players will be free to explore all skills and activate and deactivate what skills they prefer, without being limited to sticking with certain skills after they activated them. Please, whoever is in charge, please take this concept into consideration, as I feel that a lot of other players as well would appreciate this idea :)

No, I'm talking about the preorder bonus for The Crew (Ford Mustang, RAM SRT-10 and BMW Z4).

Also, would that be the Limited Edition of The Crew? (With Mini Cooper included).

Link to full description. (http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubiemea/sv_SE/pd/ThemeID.8605700/productID.299471200/The_Crew_-_Limited_Edition.html)

But is the CONTENT removed? I was playing about 9 hours ago and I confirmed that The Chemical Revolution and The American Prisoner icons are on my map. I didn't see Killed by Science, but there's only one murder mystery on the map and I'm assuming it will show up sometime after doing that mission. In addition I still have all the weapons and armor I had on day 1 (granted, I never got The Prussian Pack, but everything else was there). So it doesn't SEEM I've lost any Day 1 content.

An apology is supposed to make it better? No. Do not release unfinished garbage for PC platform and you won't have to apologize. What the hell is wrong with delaying a product if it isn't ready? Do you see car manufacturers releasing cars with no brakes or only 3 tires you morons? Watch dogs wasn't enough for you people? You had to **** this game up too? Maybe you people shouldn't be designing games in the first place if you're that inept and incompetent.

It's almost like you want the community to pirate your game if this is what you developers determine is an acceptable state to release a game in on the pc platform. I don't understand the state of mind you need to be in to think its okay to do something like this, you people are straight up imbeciles and you should be more than embarrassed.

Never again ubifail. If your company still exists in 5 or 10 years (which will be a miracle at this point) and even if the developers are completely different, I'll never buy another ubisoft game again after watch dogs and this. I will only feel bad if the division is actually a decent game, because you've lost so many customers at this point it isn't even funny. I think the competent people remaining at ubifail should band together and leave to create their own studio. This company's name alone is just a warning sign at this point, to stay the hell away.

@ArmedSauce LMFAO I bet you said the same thing after watchdogs....I hands down bet you'll buy another ubisoft game. Matter of fact I'd bet you'll buy the division and you'll complain about it too. This forum is rife with childish arguments and vulgar insults delivered by inept PC builders.

Does no one understand that if they had of built a PC with decent gear their games would run just fine. So things aren't perfect on release...or even after the first couple of patches...that is pretty much every game from every company these days, sounds like you all need to stop playing games. Or go learn programming and graphic design to show us all what you could do with your magnificent game building skills. or just learn to STFU when things don't go your way. You name me one major game developer that has never built a game that needed patches to correct errors in the original design....go ahead name one?

That's funny, because I don't own this game. Watch dogs was the last game I buy from these people. I took one look at the metacritic user score for this game and that was all I needed.

Pardon me if I'm wrong but does one not get the impression that he owns the game from this statement?

@ArmedSauce So if you don't own it........are you seriously saying that because you paid no attention to reviews from watch dogs and were stupid enough to buy it. That the next game you see with average scores you will blindly judge as "I don't want it"? Are seriously saying that you can compare games you have played to ones you haven't based on their metascore? So at this point where you 'apparently' grew intelligent enough to do game research. Did it occur to you how pointless it is to even bother to discuss something about a game you don't own? That there has got to be the stupidest argument I have ever seen!!!

I'll say that Ubisoft, though not perfect, is one of my favorite developers. When I open a support ticket, they always get back to me unless I solve the problem on my own and close the ticket before that. I love the Assassin's Creed Games, and I've bought a lot of other games off UPLAY, including Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4. I think Ubisoft will continue to make games long into the future. I've been impressed at how seriously they're taking the issue.

There is a HUGE difference between patch needed to fix somes issues like with all nowdays games, and, releasing a game totaly broken ( like a in between alpha - beta stage )
- Worse performance / lack of stability i ever saw in my life.. seriously. Even the crappiest console port have a better optimization than is game ( ofc you will not have performance issue if you have a computer that is at least 2times more performant than the resources it should need, because thoses unqualified ubi keiv look to have NO clue about how a PC work )
- Many game crash
- Online wasnt working
- Internet site + app totaly broken
- And i will not list ALL games issue ( AI, navigation, quest.. etc )

So, yeah 99% of games need patch to fix stuff, but NEVER EVER a game was so freaking broken at release.NEVER. ( even worse when its a AAA game.. ).
Oh and btw, that game is still freaking broken because of his crap performances.... Lets wait the patch4 to see if thoses guys, are for ONCE in their life are able to work correctly for that part.

Even the terribad dark soul 1 pc port was done better than this game...

See this is my point even the ones you have named so far needed errors corrected.

@wootwoots just because a game does not work as it is supposed to on your machine is not proof that it is broken especially when it works perfectly (I won't say flawlessly) on other peoples machines. I get consistent frame rate on my PC some areas give me a lower frame rate but it is still consistent. I avg. 55-60FPS with occasional drops to 45 is as low as I have seen. I run it on ultra settings at a 2560x1440 resolution. This game is spectacular to view. Here's where I ask does your PC, a) meet minimum reqs. b) does it meet recommended reqs. and finally c) does it exceed recommended reqs. Because you see the way those requirements work is simple, minimum = game will run poorly, recommended = game should run smoothly. exceed recommended = game will run exceptionally.

If you don't exceed recommended then you don't have the performance that this game requires to blow your mind. It's oh so very simple.

My experience of Unity has been mostly positive given my very high suspicions before I pre-ordered ACU and then the season pass after launch day. I've only had one or two major bugs, 2 or 3 very minor bugs and one game crash since playing every other day since launch day. Some games have way more issues than I've had with ACU. Having said that, I'm glad that Ubisoft have addressed the complaints of fans about the bugs and have released several patches since launch day to fix most of them AFAIK. The apology and promise of freeing up future content or free game to season pass holders is a surprise but a welcome one. I'm looking at Far Cry 4 as a 'maybe' even though I didn't get into the previous games in that series very much.

I would have prefered a wider selection of the Ubishop backlist or something for the future release of Assassin's Creed Rogue for PC as others have suggested also. I don't mind waiting for Rogue to be adapted to PC as planned for next year...

How about that Assassin's Creed Pirates game to have a PC release?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed#Assassin.27s_Creed:_Pirates

How about fixing up some of the smaller games and/or mobile device games and releasing them on Uplay as PC games if not available already on PC?
Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles
Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines
Assassin's Creed II: Discovery
Assassin's Creed Identity
Assassin's Creed Memories
Assassin's Creed Unity companion app

I've heard that Watch Dogs still isn't worth the hype that it was given despite the patches so I'm a bit disappointed. Do people here agree/disargree about Watch Dogs?

Here you have Ubisofts head guy coming out and apologising for the terrible state of the game on release and offering free games and dlc to make up for how bad it was/is and yet you still want to bury your heads in the sand and try and blame your fellow consumer for all of it.

OK, thank you for your generosity Bugsoft. How can i get my The Crew game please.

Patch 1.3.0 doesnt work. My game is worse than before. Now cant play CO-OP missons. ACU.EXE stops working and game crashes.

Some advices for you:

1. Change the name of the company to BUGsoft.
2. Stop making DLC´s, microtransactions, paid mobile apps, etc. Keep it simple.
3. Develop a game, Sale this game to US$ 100 each and enjoy.
4. No CO-OP, no internet needed, no initiates connections, nothing. Just the bloody game, please.

co-op is a nice addiction, replacing the old multiplayer which wasn't completely bad, but appeared to me somewhat forced in a game like this..
I hate too the companion app stuff.. it's a waiting game, boring as hell.. what's the point with this? did you think of the users that don't own a smartphone? how can they unlock all those things if it's a pain in the back even for us with the app?
the Initiates thing is to prize the old AC fans but it's been implemented badly, shutting down the game and loading the profile..
I don't know if it's all of this ongoing stuff that slows down the game, even a 4670k is bottlenecked to 100% and the game constantlty freezes for 5 to 10 seconds..

Its not like i was a isolate case.. Just saying.. if ppl having performances issues was so "rare" ( or because somes idiot would try run the game on a pentium2 )
Why would they bother work on a patch dedicated to framerate / stability... Do you even use your brain sometime ? xD
( And i'am not going to enter in the detail, because i'am not here to jerk off my PC spec like many of you here, but i can run it "fine" but there somes serious issue that clearly come from the game)
Ubi kiev = incompetent. They was in charge of Ac Unity and Fc4, and even FC4 with that quite old gen engine have trouble on PC because HT.. LOL. Seriously ? In 2014 a pc game have issue if HT is on... Best joke ever xD

Plus, as i said, it ofc work nice if you have a computer at least 2time more powerfull than what it should requier.
That dont mean this game is well optimized, that's just mean your computer is powerfull enough counterbalance all the extra-resources needed by their crap optimization.
See, its a bit like Crysis1 and the Cryengine2 used for a VERY long time as benchmark to check PC ability.
But the engine itself was way more demanding in resources than it should have, because of somes filter that wasnt well made ( Crytek itself stated that somes time after CE3 release )

Also if you run it fine ? what's the point coming here to say it ? You bought the lastest pc component, so your PC dont have trouble to manage crap unoptimized engine ? Alright ! Good for you ! ( But personaly i dont care oO )
Or if its do a "look i have the biggest virtual d*ck" i can run that, and that and that in such resolution", i'am sure there is TONS of more appropriate forum for that. Instead of coming here, where ppl talk about their issue to make UBI fix them.

Just IMO.

Hello all,

Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto's CEO, Yannis Mallat, has just released an announcement on Assassin's Creed Unity. You can read his message and announcement on our live updates blog here: assassinscreed.com/update (http://assassinscreed.com/update)

If you have questions about this upcoming offer, please refer to our FAQ first, but we will try to respond to your questions here or in the comments of that blog: assassinscreed.com/faq/ (http://www.assassinscreed.com/faq/)

As we roll out Patch 3 this week, I want to thank you for your patience.

Regards,

Johkr

(pc) I've found that at the last update many things are improving, only now that this update the movie between the captured and the prison is damage. He keeps loading but the movie does not go, through the game reinstall without an update the game further. so that's how I found out that it is by the update.

Hi,
It is not right that those who did pre-order on Steam (Assassin's Creed Unity Gold 09.11.2014) and have just downloaded the game and not activated on Uplay, does not receive the game for free before this announcement.

For business reasons I could not play the game and I knew the subject from a friend (via chat) that I will not have the season pass and even the game for free.

I have the bill confirming steam.

They're still thinking about how to handle all the people that will download the free game..
Probably they're going to wait till The Crew has come out, since its online play is vital for the game and after all the problems with the previous games, they don't want a server crash on launch.

Doubt the free copies of The Crew will have much of an impact on the stability, more likely reason is they want to sell as many copies they can before they give it away for free!

Previous AC MPs run smoothly (unless other players with gprs or dial ups decide to join). I can play 4 player coop in Diablo III on US servers w/o any noticable lag.

Notice on both PC´s with diferent graphic cards, problems by problems and Ubisof comes and say that only happens on AMD cards??

OMG Ubisoft hope that the AC Unity just be a hole of no gain to you, that you come and will give atleast 1 free and nice game with no problems "WatchDogs it´s 1 of them" not only for who bought the Season Pass, "I Bought the Bastille Edition" and correct the ACU.

What problems? Even my previous card (770) could run it at 60 with SMAA. Also I didnt have any bugs or crashes. Game was just boring, Is that a problem?
U really blind or just thinking selfish?
Most people are still experiencing bad framerate, bugs not to mention that game on PC looks nothing like E3 annoucements, and mod that unclocks blocked graphics options is one of the proof of It http://www.techspot.com/news/57132-modder-harnesses-hidden-files-to-improve-watch-dogs-pc-graphics.html.
Sure that after months game is mainly fixed but who buys a product to wait for fixes?

According to my research "most people" are idiots.
I played it right after release. Dont set textures/aa too high and you'll be ok. That 3GB for ultra mentioned in settings is for 1080p with no AA.

Some people are just plainly stupid and rage when they can't have their ****. I personally have encountered no major issues from AC:U. And why is he quoting links from Watch Dogs which have nothing to do with AC:U?

Personally don't bother trying to talk to babies. They'll just nag and cry until they get what they want.

If you do not know why I mentioned Watch Dogs just see other page of the thread and if you want to join discussion please read all our posts. I never mentioned I had performance problems with any of Ubi games couse I upgrade my rig quite often but If you do not see bugs in Unity you either fan boy or an ignorant, or maybe just lucky.
Really you trying to tell me that game is fine even if there are tons of topics of plain complaining, not to mention from release we already had 3 patches... I think you are trying to lie to yourself couse you probably love the franchise so much.


According to my research "most people" are idiots.
That is why people preordering games and then wait for patches over and over again.

Check your specs.

http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-unity-pc-specs/

You have an i5, but it's 2.6 ghz. Minimum is 3.3.

You've also got minimum vram. Also remember that on a big game like this, you not only need the space on your HD for the game, but FREE space for ram overruns. Now, what you're experiencing MAY not be your fault. It may be the same problems some other people are having. But from the look of your specs, I'd say you might want something a bit more powerful for a game like this.

Dear UbiJohkr, I have a suggestion.
I apologyze for some strong words in the poll. they were placed there to express my emotional anger with the subject.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Why don´t you make a poll among all AC owners to research about the upcoming games from AC franchise?

Here is an example for some questions:

1. Do you want to sync your game with an external website (INITIATES)?

( ) YES
( ) NO
( ) HELL NO
( X ) I WILL KILL YA IF YOU FORCE ME TO

2. Do you want to sync your game with an external app (MOBILE COMPANION)?

( ) YES
( ) NO
( ) HELL NO
( X ) I WILL KILL YA IF YOU FORCE ME TO

3. Do you want to give more money to Ubisoft to pay some games?

( ) NO. I want to pay US$ 1,99 for a mobile app that doesnt work.
( ) NO. I want to pay US$ 30 for a season pass with different missions and stuff.
( ) NO. I want to pay US$ 20 for microtransactions inside the game.
( X ) YES, PLEASE! I WANT TO PAY US$ 120 FOR THE GAME. Just the freaking 100% functional game. Without online sync and stuff.

Seriously, make a poll. ask the USERS what they want.

Regards,
Angry and disappointed user.

Well, my laptop is a Acer X550L with specs: Intel Core i-5 4200U 1.6~2.3 GHz 6Gb RAM Nvidia Geforce 820m 2GB.
It can run the game better after tweaking on Nvidia Control Panel and seems run a little better after Patch 3. Mostly all settings on Low, I just put Texture on High.

Of course the framerates aren't good and the usual crashes/stuck in game or uplay.

Because they make the "cancer" (microtransactions, DLC´s, etc) to increase the profit.
If they charge $ 20 more per copy, they don´t need to care about those ****ty options.

Ubisoft, I have an idea:

instead of offering me another game, why not instead offer the season pass holders a completely unlocked Unity. Unlock the golden chests locked by the poorly synchronized Initiates. Unlock all the blue chests, missions and outfit currently locked behind that clunky companion app. Unlock, free and upgraded, all the equipment currently locked behind the nonexistent "Club Competitions". I would FAR rather have THAT package than The Crew and its forty pounds of microtransactions.

What you don't realize is that the lack of communication is done on purpose. While people wait, some will get fed up and go grab the game they want: more money for Ubi
Those who aren't aware about the offer, will anyway go buy the games: more money for Ubi


You? You're just a wallet on legs, nothing else for these clowns. Shaddy business at its finest.

I was supporting the company, both because some games are decent, and because a few colleagues work there. After that kind of repeated fiasco and lies, I'll just go pirate the hell out of every Ubisoft game from now on. That's what a company gets when it constantly messes up with its customer base.

First off, you're the perfect example of what's wrong in this industry. The perfect tool, wearing a shiny sherif badge and ready to take a bullet for his gaming gods.
You know cretin ( I can call you cretin right, since we're intimate enough so I get called idiot and scum...anyway, cretin is a word that suits you mighty fine), when a big company CEO comes and apologizes PUBLICLY about how his company product didn't deliver what customers paid for, the word minor in your mouth is pure irony. You're probably too stupid to get the point but I have hope you can get it if you try hard enough in your spare time.


Now about your helpless barking over me insulting another poster, get a brain , maybe two if you get a deal because actually, noone unless they have hot water between their ears, will ever go for the fact I insulted that person. It's called an analogy and no it's nothing sexual related (you're quite dense so I just had to make sure).
That said analogy is directed to everyone who paid for a product that did NOT work (see above if you seek a proof, the CEO part). This includes me since I paid for it.


Last but not least, your poor argument about waaaa PC pirates, that's so funny I won't go over how wide spread piracy was on 360 and PS3 ( you know, consoles). But ok, you're a tool, and not too bright either, not sure going into details will achieve anything about that matter.
Just this quote from another studio (one of many):

Ubisoft is rumbling about Piracy...again - Fun fact - At Paradox we never, ever look at piracy numbers - we're focused on our gamers.

After watch Dogs, far Cry 4, Unity and now The Crew, I can tell Ubi is too focused on its gamers. Well more on their wallets. Huge marketing tricks, empty promises and bugged games on release. But yeah, it's unfair people get upset at this, is it?

As for me whining all day long about pirated games on these forums... not sure where to start since
1 I barely post here
2 I have no ubi pirated games yet
3 you're just a clueless cretin?

And you are what is wrong with the world with younger people, they think they are edgy and can sit and think what they think is the actual reasoning others have to abide by.

Nothing edgy about admitting you steal stuff, and don't even bother going into the "it's not theft if it isn't a physical object" or "copyright infringement" rubbish, theft has still to be updated in the dictionaries to include digital forms since digital forms didn't exist when it was entered into the dictionary last.

Also, just because the guy commented on you doesn't make him whatever it is you think he is, you were kinda all over the place about that, doesn't mean you are right.

No matter how much excuses you try to look for, the fact you want to steal future games from whatever amount of developers/publishers, they don't excuse what you do is wrong. Now you may think "it is just me, I am not hurting anyone!" yeah multiply that by a few million then you see the effect that you all collectively have.

I am not happy with the state of the game, but that doesn't mean ill go steal the rest of their future releases. That is just stupid and immature.

At the end of the day it could have been nigh on perfect and people will still find a way to complain to make themselves feel better about future theft. You are no different.

So the two of you (nice little couple by the way, you should date more often) and your kiddie/forum trolls insults don't even get a scratch on me. You're just amusing and a bit on the pathetic side when I see you going full excuse-mode.

I have one rule: I buy a product and it's supposed to work
It's not? I'll get a replacement or a refund. Since we get none from companies like Ubisoft, there are other means to send a message. Idiots like you keep complaining or shrugging and the message you send is you're only capable to bend over for more.
After Watch dogs, I gave them another chance (WD was a fine example of pure genius marketing bs followed by the best scam ever, in the line of Aliens colonial marines).
And since you're sending them the right signal, they keep going on that same line. I'm what is wrong? Gimme a break girls.

As for who is stealing who. I have a hard time believing a product I paid full price a year ago or so still has problems running right on a high end machine *cough* Watch dogs *cough*
Spending money for something that doesn't work, that's pretty much scam/stealing in my book. But yeah, I'm the bad duck. You are both jokers, just not very good at it. Try with a few more smileys next time?


But hey, it's all good. I'm sure the two of you will get a nice paycheck from Ubi by xmas. Before you cash it though, you might have to wait a few patchs, as usual.

I see you never read the full thing, so sure of yourself.

Oh wow you have 250+ games, how many are not bundled titles.

Here is my Steam account if you want to go that route - http://steamcommunity.com/id/traziz/ - so the amount of games you have isn't the issue here.

The issue is the fact you were so brazen about stealing software in the future, and when someone debates about it to you... you go all blah blah blah, like you did with me, and you didn't even read what i said fully. If you did you would see that I am not happy with Unity and there has been problems for me also, so I am not some "Ubisoft defense force", I am someone with common sense and courtesy to know the difference between right and wrong.

So your childish attempt at trying to be edgy failed yet again, "kid".

But, apart from the insults you've thrown at people who have disagreed with you, you've completely opened yourself up to criticism by bragging about 'pirating the hell out of Ubisoft' - your own words.

Nor have you even stopped to consider that not everyone is having the same problems you are. I'm personally running AC Unity at 60 fps, completely maxed out, at 2560x1080. The game is gorgeous, and is a total gas to play. But that's just not something you want to hear.

For the people having problems running the game: you have my sympathy.

There are, to be certain, people who bought the game but don't have a computer that meets the minimum requirement. However, I also know that there are people who have almost the same computer specs I do, but I can play and they can't, and I have no idea why. So I know that there are people who should be able to play the game, and for whatever reasons cannot, and I can only speculate from there.

However, I will say that I have really enjoyed Ubisoft's games. I now own all of the AC games. I have FC3 (which I really loved) and FC4 and WD (which I haven't played much yet, being busy with AC3, ACL, AC4, ACU and now AC2).

ACU played really well for me, and I can count on one hand the glitches I encountered. I enjoyed it.

Since getting ACU, one by one, my complaints have been fixed.
Rewards and syncing with UNITE: fixed.
Initiates: fixed and completely synced now
Companion App: syncing regularly now.

The only thing left that I really want are the club competitions.

I realize that some people are frustrated with Ubisoft right now, and I sympathize. But I feel that offering a whole, free game to Season Pass holders is generous. I'm grateful.

I can't get past the pop-ins on the npcs to play far enough to see whether any of these other problems occur - I really want to play this game, but I grow weary of Ubisoft - good luck trying to get my to buy any of your other products. Oh and if you haven't noticed, no one likes your crappy implementation of micro-transactions - there is a way to do it and there is you way, people already paid 60+ dollars to play your game, that is broken - my guess is, the time spent implementing all these micro-transactions could have been used to fixed your dirty game.

"The issue is the fact you were so brazen about stealing software in the future, and when someone debates about it to you.."

Learn to read, that shouldn't be so hard for an "adult". There's a difference between debating and insulting. Scroll up some and see who started it all. Yeah right, the Wabe clown.
Tell you what kiddo, I'm a rather nice guy, to the point I'm not anymore. You or anyone step on my toes, don't expect me to welcome you with a smile. Simple rule enough to go for a normal convo. Get back to me when you have learned to read a post fully.


"I see you never read the full thing, so sure of yourself.

Oh wow you have 250+ games, how many are not bundled titles.."

You might want to refrain to lecture people if you can't even apply your advices to yourself. I won't bother copy/pasting what you should know already. And no, nice troll attempt, but none is bundled.


"But, apart from the insults you've thrown at people who have disagreed with you"

Lookey lookey, the hypocrit makes a come-back. You might want to check who jumped at my throat with insults first, and to top it, just to put words in my mouth ( the so-called insult -that never existed in the first place- to the poster I was replying to).
Same to you *******, learn to read.

" Going for the homophobic remark!"

Really? Where is that? Learn to understand the meaning of what you read. Told you, it's step 2 after reading. Your skull is clearly a bit thick to get this right. Forget it, you're just a nutcase.

Come on guys read the updates, this was 4 days ago


What’s happening with the next patch?

Work continues on Patch 4, which should bring improvements to the framerate as well as additional fixes. We’re still testing some fixes in Patch 4, so we’ll have a more detailed preview next week.

Look not for nothing but I pre ordered this game this game for November 11th, I played no more then 30 minutes total because it's dam near unplayable, and I haven't said boo because I understand some releases are less then perfect and bugs need to get worked out, but seriously at this point, wtf?

The games over a month old and still unplayable, I tolerate this with new companies and $10 games but this is a $60 game from a top company. Long story short, I'm pretty frustrated as well as a bunch of other people with this release. I'm posting this in hopes the morons pushing games and doing marketing and releasing **** before it's ready read this and know that they are going to lose those $60 order it right away because it should be ready sales, and we're just going to wait for the thing to drop to $10 2 years later, when it's actually a real bug free $60 release.

I also pre-ordered Far Cry 4, and that had some mouse stuttering issues at release too, luckily easily fixable with editing 1 config file, but this release was nothing short of a disaster and obviously extremely over promised and over rushed. You can tell by multiple problems on multiple platforms. At the very least to save face, you should offer your customers something more then a free DLC, that's almost a slap in the face on a $60 game over a month late.

Ubisoft makes some killer games, and I'm sure the team knows what they are doing, but the people making the decisions and pushing things out the door for money, are screwing themselves in the long run. Maybe I'm the only one or maybe more people are with me, but I'm definately NOT going to pre-order anymore, and read lots of reviews etc before I buy another Ubisoft game. If thing's were released properly working, or fixed a little faster (which means they'd need to be actually ready for release in the first place and some bugs slipped through) withen a week or so, I'm ok with that. This long after a pre-order release still this buggy, it's just not worth it, I feel ripped off, like I spent too much, if this was any product besides software I wouldv'e already returned it and forgot about it.

Anyways my issues since launch, and still existing.
Extreme mouse stutter in menus, unplayable lag in game, even with settings turned way down. I also tried all the tricks you find on the forums through google for nVidia settings etc etc, it helps mildly but still unplayable. Game reads 40fps or higher all the time, but runs like it's 5 - 10fps. Feels like Starforge all over again only we have 200 people trying to fix it instead of 2.

I feel your pain , your not the only one that feels this way , i'm in the same boat as yourself and i too will never pre-order any UBI game again or any other publisher as a matter of fact after BF4 , these people have to learn that they cannot take our cash which i for one work very hard for , any give us this type of unfinished product , if there was anyway i could take a refund i would of done so days ago .
As a season pass holder im suppose to get a free game , but the games that are on offer i either have or don't care for . Thanks UBI you have well and truly smacked my legs this Christmas ,well done , but this will be the last time i can assure you off that .

I'm sure it'll appear sometime this week. I'm more wondering if this is going to be "automatically applied" to account or if we're just going to be given a code we can redeem as we see fit. Like many others I'm sure, I have all the games I want from the list by buying them myself but I would like to get a second copy of The Crew and give it to a family member who's a bit tighter with cash when it comes to buying games. At least this way we can play it together when we like and not have a wasted bonus going to one of the games on the list I'd never play, so it'd be nice to know if it's going to just be a redeemable key or not.

Problem - Mouse lagging hardcore in menus, major lag in game even though FPS seems to be semi stable, basically near unplayable, or not very fun at all to play in this state.

Specs -
Windows 7 64bit
Intel Core i7-920
24 gigs of ram
nVidia GTX580
WD Velociraptor HD (SSD needs to hit 2tb already)

Play Farcry 4 flawlessly after the mouse fix in the config file, and pretty much everything else flawlessly, so it should be able to handle AC:Unity with low to medium settings no problem.

Cured my mouse issues by going into Device Manager USB Root Hub and unchecking the boxes in Power Management...

580...lower your expectations.

What does your HD have to do with your SSD or "2tb" for that matter??

Why would you expect performance in one game to carry over into another completely different game??

I paid for the Season Pass and I'm receiving the Season Pass content as it's released. I will also get a game that I did not pay for. So, since I'm getting the season pass content that I paid for AND a game that I did not pay for, yes, the game IS free.

Not really since EVERYONE who bought the game is now getting the season pass content for free. Thus, your original purchase is moot and your money is actually going towards your new game.

Not true. They are getting ONLY the Dead Kings DLC. That's one small part of the Season Pass. Non-season pass holders get ONE dlc. Season pass holders get a game.

For me game is rock solid, no crashes, you should try fixing your system stability, bc patches are unlikely to fix anything for you.
Your CPU overclock might not be stable. Also in some cases 4 RAM sticks can be problematic, especially above Intel officially supported 1600mhz clock (often can be fixed by disabling C states).
PS TXAA makes image bloory in all games

Ubisoft need to change their game release policy. From 'f***k you give me money NOW!' to "when it's done'. Recent games were relesed in quite BAD shape.

Have you contacted the maker of your graphics card to see if you have the latest drivers or to report an issue with this game (as the 970 seems to not like ACU)?

The game stops at the start screen, there is no error. Tried both online and offline, same result. Downgraded video driver to 344.48, same result.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but since this unplayable stack of garbage still doesn't work on PC, can we get a refund? I got this as a gift, and now I wish I could've saved the money for the person who gave it to me. Because it doesn't work. I had to manually download a .dll like it's 1995. Even then it crashes. Constantly. So, I want a refund. It's 2014. That you idiots are putting out games this broken is shameful.

But again 93-95% of PC gamers don't say "I'll just pirate it" so that statement is completely and utterly ridiculous. I suppose console users don't pirate?

Peasants obviously DO pirate games, and do it just as "good".
But again, If the product is broken - dont touch it, if you already spent money on it - request refund (or be happy with a compensation they gave u). This isnt a valid excuse for pirating games.

The compensation thay gave us is only valid for those with a working game, You cant relese a product and expect people to trust and pay you and relese it not ready buggy and unplayable.

Actually, that '93-95%' statistic is just proof of the saying that there are lies, damned lies and statistics. What they actually mean is that, of any Ubisoft game released, 93-95% of copies played are pirated, which, of course, would include things like bootleg copies sold in back streets in various countries around the world, quite often to people who wouldn't be able to get it any other way, as well as illegally torrented versions. They use that to imply that this means that 93-95% of sales are lost, and that therefore they're only making 5-7% of the money they should be, hence DRM is legitimised. This is absolute ********. Even discounting things like people who buy a legit copy, but then pirate so they don't need to bother with DRM (something I have done with, for example, Windows), they do not indicate what percentage of these pirates would actually buy if it was simply not possible to pirate these games. I have seen no major publisher who, publicly, at least, even seems to consider that question. The only time I have seen this considered is about six years ago by a small indie developer who released a DRM-free version of one of their games, then monitored how much their sales increased and also how much torrents dropped on several major pirate sites when they started adding more and more restrictive DRM. They came to the conclusion they got 1 extra sale for every 1,000 downloads eliminated, or, to put it another way, the conversion of pirate to paying customer by eliminating piracy was 0.1%. If this holds true for Ubisoft games, this means that they are not losing out on 93-95% of sales due to piracy, they are losing out on 0.093-0.095% of sales.

First of all dont call me names you dumb ****, Uplay is a kind of DRM which does ****s up the saves and corrupts some of the downloaded files.
Fix your broken programmes and games and learn that you cant punish those who pay for your products or deal with the consoquences.

Haha. They are not my programmers, funny raging little guy.
And Uplay is not DRM, they removed all DRM-related functions long ago, you dont need to be online, there are no install limits, device activations, low level drivers, nothing.
Its just a carot now, gives extras so users are more likely to use it, But even those extras are available in offline mode once you unlock them.

Argue semantics if it makes you feel better you funny chubby boy, And uplay is a kind of DRM, Like steam and origin are a kind of DRM.

Steam is DRM bc it tracks on how many computers you have logged in, and can flag your account for ban if it detects suspicious activity (like IPs from different locations in a short time). Steam is very paranoid and automatically issues multiple restrictions (including 30 day trade ban) if you login from a new PC.
Uplay doesnt have any kind of abuse protection, therefore it cant be considered a DRM.

Origin, Steam, Uplay are all DRM because they require the client to be on while you play the game. All they do like DRM's job is to enforce the game's EULA on a software level, that's what DRM is.

Yes please, I'd really like to see you do that, select components that negate bad programming, the world awaits your expertise! What amazes me most about your post is that your sig shows you running 7970 crossfire, and crossfire isn't working, so please explain to me how your rig selection is so perfect and runs the game so well? Personally I have a pair of 290's and the performance is still terrible.

I'm betting you don't have working crossfire and your just an arrogant big mouthed idiot who can't keep it shut despite having nothing constructive to say. Me, I'm looking forward to a patch 5 that does actually fix the performance issues, removes the newly introduces flickering on SLi systems (my mates 780ti's now can't play the game) and fixes the completely broken multiplayer that seems to depend on the wind direction, which was one of the main advertised features of the new AC and the reason my friends and I all bought it.

The game is best optimised for NVIDIA 900 series and it's pretty broken in regards to SLI and Crossfire. Ever since I got my GTX970 the game runs so well. AMD did do well with the Omega driver and my old R9 280 ran OK after that, with high textures, SSAO, FXAA, 1920x1080 and I was in the 40s a lot.

Don't be so hateful. Am willing to recognize that PC gaming and your expectations about hardware and proper selection are beyond your ken. Perhaps your system is more suitable for games like World of Warcraft, etc?

Aw, pot and kettle and all that mate, you were the one being hateful to the guy who was waiting for patch 5 remember? I'm just giving you some of your own medicine!

The fact that you obviously have a reading age somewhere in single digits doesn't help my job but I'm willing to persevere. Quite how you could be so stupid as to assume that hardware selection is beyond my understanding is baffling, but then there are a lot of morons on the internet, and nice as it is of you to put your hand up, in future you would be wiser to keep you moronic comments to yourself and not prove to the world how incredibly thick you really are. Did you see my rig in my sig, well no you didn't but still you judge? Despite mentioning that I ran crossfire 290's and that graphics cards are predominant for gaming you still couldn't figure out my rig might be better than yours, you simpleton. Frankly, looking at that cooker of a rig you built and the fact that you feel the colour of your cable's and LED's is worth mentioning in your sig tell me you shouldn't be allowed anywhere near component selection.

A quick look through your post history also shows you never really contribute anything to the discussion, so do the world a small favour and just admit you were being dumb in both those posts and have done with it.

Still looking forward to patch 5.

Well that's just not true is it. Crossfire remains broken, and SLi flickers so bad you have to turn the second card off to play so both high performance solutions don't work

Yes, you got it right. ACU 1.4 has less bugs than fully patched AC3 or AC4 and many many other games. And it performs like it should on adequate hardware - faster and smoother than WD or AC4 on the same system, while having much more advanced visuals.

Still hanging around because there are many who still have some hope over the problems.

As for the other remark
"In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
Seen it many times in here already.

People are feeling negativity indeed. A lot of it has to do with lack of any up to date official information (including acknowledgment that there are still issues, or that things are being looked into). Just dead silence......which stirs up tension.
Even the live update page hasn't been updated in quite awhile.

Ok, I take my words back. Ubisoft dropped the ball with their DLCs.

1. apparently a lot of players with "revolutionary armaments" experience a very nasty bug with weapon unlocks not being correctly registered
2. "hydrogen bonded" (dead kings 100% sync achievements) doesnt properly register on PC

Yeah. Haven't you heard? It's coming "soon"! They've been saying it for weeks! Ubisoft: don't try to fix EVERYTHING in ONE patch. I don't care if you have to release 10,000 patches to get the game running, let's see you FIX something, eh? I'm still waiting on those Dead Kings weapons.
