Assassin’s Creed III Receives Day-One Patch To Fix Issues

If you went out last night or early this morning to pick up a copy of Assassin’s Creed III then I’ll warn you that you’re going to be prompted to download a day-one  patch. Ubisoft strongly urges players to download the patch and let it install before you get into the game. The patch fixes a host of issues that have been found in the game already, and it’s always better to let the game update before you make your first run.

The full patch notes on the Ubisoft forums list everything the patch does to work out the game’s kinks, but there’s also a bit of spoiler information wrapped up in it. Here’s a few highlights, spoiler-free:

Bug Fixes

  • NPCs spawned too far away could end up being the wrong type
  • Fixed a bug where counter-killing with the bow does not always work
  • Animus Synching tutorial, fixed an issue where the player could think he’s stuck in an infinite loading screen when getting to Boston after the credits
  • Camera could remain stuck after the player being respawned
  • Player could remain stuck after diving from a waterfall
  • Player could remain stuck if he exits a slopped hay stack at a certain angle

The list goes on and on, even listing specific issues with missions. That being said there’s a lot of issues that needed to be fixed. Good thing Ubisoft was on top of the matter, though, and the patch should ensure a smooth run through the game. Go ahead and let the game do its thing, and happy assassinating!
