Ubisoft Addresses Assassin's Creed Unity PC Issues

 

Following the release of Assassin's Creed Unity on Tuesday, Ubisoft's stocks were down 9.33%, the game didn't review well and widespread issues have plagued many players regardless of their gaming platform.

Ubisoft has now spoken out to address the issues some players are experiencing on the PC version AC: Unity, in a statement posted on the Ubisoft forums, the publisher explained that the issue, which it says it not widespread, stems from a problem with certain AMD CPU and GPU configurations. 

While many AMD users have been having issues, after a quick search online I found a countless number of results where Xbox One, PS4, and all PC users AMD or Nvidia have framerate issues, freezing, crashes and loads of character and texture pop-in issues.

 

"We are aware that the graphics performance of Assassin’s Creed Unity on PC may be adversely affected by certain AMD CPU and GPU configurations," Ubisoft wrote. "This should not affect the vast majority of PC players, but rest assured that AMD and Ubisoft are continuing to work together closely to resolve the issue, and will provide more information as soon as it is available."

 

Ubisoft Addresses Assassin's Creed Unity PC Issues  

 

Steam users have reported a variety of problems with the PC version of Unity, most of which are mentioned above. Ubisoft have in the eyes of many people have released a game which was frankly not ready. Ubisoft have said that they will be working with AMD and other hardware providers in order to try and fix these issues.

Below I will post a video from the game critic TotalBiscuit, where he explains many of these issues very well. Even he with a i7 5630K and GTX 980 SLI based system could not play the game maxed out 60FPS 1080p or even 60FPS High settings without any anti-aliasing. 

 

 

At present with the hardware issues and highly demanding nature of the title I cannot recommend the purchase of this game, at least until a couple of patched or driver revisions are released which will undoubtedly improve the playability of this game. I advise all PC gamers who want to buy this game to be patient and wait for some of these issues to be solved.

If you want to know what the games performance is like on PC, on Nvidia's GTX 900 series hardware, please have a look at our Assassin's Creed performance article here.

No it doesn't run well on AMD, its got gameworks on it. Ubisoft could've actually tried but hey, money first right?

Oh and no graphical tweaks will fix falling through the floor.

Well it's not just Ubi, AMD could of stepped in and sent tech guys to their offices, Ubisoft said with the last game, WD, AMD were welcome to work with them but AMD didn't want to know.Quote

As you're about to discover in our latest article, no it doesn't run well, except on anything. AMD complaints are just bull as nVidia cards hardly rock the world either.Quote

Notice 'Ubisoft Said'.

Gameworks is incredibly political. If it wasn't gameworks I'd agree that maybe AMD have been dragging their feet but as AMD aren't allowed access to Gameworks I kinda find it a bit fishy that a company who have a smaller market share and still can be competitive would do that.

Before anyone says anything, I'm aware that it doesn't run very well on anything, period. Even consoles. Ubisoft are the next EA now. No argument about it. They care for consoles, not for us and as such should be flat out ignored.
-edit- posted before I saw Von Blade's post. I was complaining as Ubisoft would obviously not dare state that they have issues with Nvidia cards.Quote
