With respect to divergent opinions, I think that sort of outright dismissal is overly simplistic. The resulting final product has a number of issues, and those problems are more noticeable in light of the passage of years and the evolution of design. The famously drawn-out tutorials of the series are particularly troubling here, with long stretches of the early hours of play relegated to introducing concepts, creating significant pacing issues. New features, like wilderness traversal, ship combat, and new hand-to-hand melee options can all sometimes feel unwieldy. The game also had a rough row to hoe from the start conceptually, and I think at least some of the hate thrown at the game comes from expectations that were never realized. This journey across colonial America was a turning point for the series, and the remaster releasing today helps me appreciate the beauty and breadth of the project, thanks to a particularly robust 4K visual overhaul. The frontier wilderness, burgeoning New England towns, and storm-swept Atlantic waves all look especially impressive for a game that originally graced our screens in , thanks to a bevy of improvements, including HDR and physically based rendering for the lighting, new character models, and larger crowds. Even the color palette is broader and richer than the muted blues of the original. The austere beauty of birch and spruce forests makes for one of my favorite wilderness presentations in a video game.
Assassin’s Creed III
In interview with Rock Paper Shotgun , Stephanie Perotti, Ubisoft’s worldwide director for online games, has said that the company has decided to remove the need for a permanent connection to play its PC titles. In fact, she claims the decision was made way back in June, after which point Ubi’s singleplayer games have only required a one-time activation upon install. Ubisoft’s approach to DRM has been widely lambasted by gamers, partly because of the inconvenience for the consumer, but mostly because it often didn’t seem to work, dropping connection to the server mid-game, booting you out and erasing progress.
And now, finally, it seems Ubisoft have heeded this wail of despair, with Perotti explicitly confirming that the singleplayer component of Assassin’s Creed 3 will not require any online connection. She also suggests Ubisoft will be doing more to get their games onto PC quicker – so good news all round.
Layla returns – The present-day sections of Assassin’s Creed games are always considered to be one of the franchise’s wors.
Right before Origins , the series was growing stale, but a few years without a release gave them time to implement new mechanics and create a larger and more vital world, reinventing the franchise and breathing new life into the franchise. Well, almost each and every one. It took a long time for the game to get going. Whilst the 18th century setting of Colonial America during the American Revolution was an interesting decision, I felt no real connection to Connor.
After playing Origins and Odyssey , it was instantly recognisable how far the development has come within the franchise. Running around Boston and climbing up a fruit cart or a fence by mistake became a regular occurrence, and climbing down buildings was severely lacking the fluidity of the titles that came after. Movement is slow in general, and whilst it was great to be able to take out multiple enemies in quick succession, combat was also much more cumbersome.
Visually, the 4K enhancements to its resolution are noticeable, making every location look fantastic.

Assassin’s Creed Unity PS4 Patch Fixes Crashes, Matchmaking Issues & More. Jason DunningTuesday, November 11, Facebook Twitter Reddit.
Ubisoft has released a new Assassin’s Creed Unity patch that unlocks the rewards previously tied to the game’s companion app and Initiates web service. But progression took time, and many players objected to content in the main game being locked away in this manner. The new patch also removes the need to log into Ubisoft’s Initiates web service, which was designed to track your progress through the entire Assassin’s Creed series.
As you levelled up, the gold chests dotted over the main Unity map would unlock, revealing outfits from the series’ other main protagonists, as well as more in-game money. In reality, Initiates suffered major connection problems from the game’s launch and failed to track user progress correctly. Ubisoft pulled the service down for maintenance shortly before Christmas and gold chests have been unlockable ever since.

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered review
Update: 19 August: Numerous Twitter reports were suggesting the Fall Guys servers were having issues today — and we saw a massive swell of traffic to this page earlier — but now we’re having no problems playing the game. Update: 15 August, 2am PT: A short period of maintenance is going on with the Fall Guys servers as the weekend kicks off, so expect minor disturbances. Looking at all the beans last night, we still need a bigger jar tonight.
We’ll have a short period of downtime in minutes it’s our lowest-traffic period. We’ll be back for you as fast as we can!
So using user research and player feedback we addressed those problems. Here is an example of AC III. Red dot is used for 1, multiple enemies or roof top.
Preceded by a massive total of 19 other games in the series excluding Assassin’s Creed Rogue , Assassin’s Creed Unity looked to shake off any potential consumer fatigue by changing things up. On top of the concern that those aforementioned co-op missions would not feature playable female characters , Assassin’s Creed Unity has also courted some controversy by featuring microtransactions and a p, 30FPS framerate on all platforms rather than aiming for a p standard.
Now that the game has been released in North America, has AC Unity successfully dodged the criticism? Early reports from users suggest that not only has it failed to do so, but massive performance issues have only made matters worse. According to players, the biggest problem plaguing the new stealth and stab ’em up title at launch appears to be framerate plummets. Outside of the visuals department, other reports fewer in number have noted server issues and outright crashes.
One user on the game’s reddit page described connection errors popping up when opening their first chest, while the crashes appear to be random. Worse still, these problems seem to be occurring on all platforms with Xbox One seeming to be the most stable.
Assassin’s Creed Unity Patch 3 arrives today to address 300+ issues
LOG IN. Assassin’s Creed III Assassin’s Creed III is an action-adventure video game, a direct sequel to ‘s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and is the fifth installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. Players will take on the role of three different characters during the course of the game. Set in an open world, players must apply a combination o f stealth, parkour, and combat to complete various missions.
We’re aware of issues affecting matchmaking right now, and are working on a fix. Update 3, August 7, am PT: The developer’s latest update says Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date, trailers, pre-orders and news.
From everything I’d seen, it seemed like Ubisoft was doing everything in their not-inconsiderable power to push their flagship series into brave new territory. Rather than taking the Assassin’s Creed series forward in some bold new direction, Ubisoft has resolutely kept the series at the same level as before, and actually have taken several rather large steps back. Not everyone feels this way: The game has garnered plenty of positive criticism, including a mixed but generally positive review from our own Stephen Totilo.
Of course, that’s not to say I hate it—I don’t. But after about ten or twelve hours with the game, I have to say, I think it could have been much, much better. Coming up, there’ll be some minor spoilers , including descriptions of a few missions from around the start of the Revolutionary War. Nothing too major. Here we go. That sounds pretty damning, huh? Let’s just start with this one, then. Good video games have a good feel to them.
Think of it this way: it’s not necessarily that every toy, trick, and game mechanic feels intuitive and smooth.

Ubisoft renounces always-on DRM for PC – Assassin’s Creed 3 confirmed playable offline
The idea of taking a last-gen console Assassin’s Creed game and putting it on Switch sounded totally within the realm of possibility. Unfortunately, it turns out to be an ugly mess that barely looks better than it did on Xbox and PlayStation 3, and yet somehow runs worse. The p screen is small enough I barely noticed the loss of detail. The p screen is small enough I barely noticed the loss of detail relative to the PS4 or ultra-high-definition PC versions on things like the buildings and character models.
