After a less than fantastic launch for the new Assassin’s Creed Unity game, that was plagued with bugs and issues when it shipped out to gamers earlier this year. Ubisoft has today announced that they will be now making the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC free to players.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is the seventh major instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series, and is the successor to Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag that launched back in 2013, and also has tie-ins with Assassin’s Creed Rogue that launched earlier this year.
CEO of Ubisoft Montreal Yannis Mallat explains more about the decision by Ubisoft to make the Dead Kings DLC free to gamers :
“Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.
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.
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. “
