UPDATE: Ubisoft CEO Yannis Mallat had this to say about Unity‘s less than stellar launch:
,,,We’ve been working hard to fix the problems players are reporting, and the patches we have released so far have resolved many of them. Today, we’re releasing our third patch, which fixes a variety of specific issues related to the game’s stability and performance, matchmaking and connectivity, gameplay and menus. You can find the release notes on that patch here: Patch 3 Notes
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. More details on the offer for Season Pass holders can be found here: AC Unity FAQ
….We will continue striving to make Assassin’s Creed one of the most ambitious and innovative franchises on the market, and we thank you for your continued loyalty and support.
ORIGINAL STORY: Well, this is interesting. Assassin’s Creed Unity’s season pass appears to no longer be listed online. I checked the PSN store and couldn’t find it, and NeoGAF user VisceralBowl is showing that the season pass isn’t on Steam, either. Ditto for Xbox Live Marketplace, Gamestop, and Best Buy. German website GamersGlobal is going so far as to say that the season pass has been canceled. PC players are supposedly getting a free Ubisoft game, while console buyers of the season pass will still get the “Dead Kings” DLC for free. No word yet on Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China, the downloadable game also part of the pass.
It’s more than likely that this has to do with the less than positive reception on social media for Unity thus far. Not to mention how freaking insane the microtransactions are, going so far as to charge $100. We’ll have more on the story as it develops.
