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:
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!
