If you bought Assassin’s Creed Unity at launch, you might have run into some issues with the game. Ubisoft has been working on patches to tackle the problems and just announced that Patch 4 will be available on December 15. According to the post, the latest patch “will address issues with stability and performance as well as online matchmaking and connectivity”. It will also likely hold some other improvements, but full details are not known.
Ubisoft did previously post top priority issues that they were tracking. So some of the following list of issues should be rectified with the upcoming patch:
Game crashes after loading your save: We’re devoting a lot of attention to this one and we have a workaround (try taking your system offline and reload your save, you should be able to play offline). Most instances of this crash will be eliminated in Patch 4, but if you do still encounter this issue after the Patch is applied please file a Customer Support ticket to help us identify what your issue is so we can create a fix for it.
Error CE-34878-0: Similar to the crash mentioned above, the game freezes or crashes after loading your save. This particular error message is exclusive to PS4. This issue should be resolved in Patch 4.
Initiates legacy recognition issues: Many of these issues have been resolved, but we’ve noted that it could still take several days for all of your progress from past games to be fully updated. If after five days you still don’t see your progress accurately reflected on the site, please file a ticket with Customer Support so we can more closely examine this issue.
Companion App issues: We’ve just released a new patch for the Companion App, so be sure to update to release 1.04 if you have not already. This patch addresses the following issues:
Restoration of lost Premiums
Fixed synchronization issues for first-time users and at login
Fixed the “no assassin” issue in the tutorial
Fixed missions with 100% odds of success that could fail
Fixed an issue with lost progress – simply resync with the HD game and load your save, this will synchronize your online progression data.
