Ubisoft provided another update on their efforts to fix Assassin's Creed Unity today. They've detailed the major features of Patch 3, scheduled to come to all platforms in the near future.
The company said on their recently launched Live Updates blog that the patch will focus on the following areas of Assassin's Creed Unity:
"Part of what we want to do at this point is balance the competing desires to get as much as we can into the patch with getting it out quickly. Once we’ve locked down exactly what will be in Patch 3, we will update you again with a more specific set of patch notes. This next patch won't solve every problem, but we're expecting that it will dramatically improve your experience."
Patch 2 addressed several game-breaking bugs, such as Arno falling through the ground or getting stuck inside hay carts. It also stops the game from crashing when you join co-op mode. Ubisoft released that update on PS4 and PC on Saturday and they implement the Xbox One version today. Patch 2 on Xbox One also gets rid of long delays on the main menu screen.
Ubisoft says that they're now looking into performance issues reported by many AC Unity players such as dramatic dips in the frame rate. Ubisoft doesn't have a timeline for the frame rate fixes but promise additional details soon.
In a new Q&A, Ubisoft admits that some of these patches may cause some issues of their own. If you encounter any problems after installing a patch, you're encouraged to contact their customer support so they can zero in on the issue.
"It might be a rare hiccup that's cleared up with a re-install, or it might be indicative of a larger problem we need to work on right away... so be sure to keep us posted about your experience."
