Assassin's Creed 3 Gets Huge Day-1 Patch

Ubisoft Montreal just launched their action adventure, Assassin's Creed 3 and, in addition to the release, they also mean to offer a huge day-one patch for the game, which evidently, fixes numerous bugs and performance issues.

Bug Fix

- Animus Synching tutorial, fixed an issue where the player could think he's stuck in an infinite loading when getting to Boston after the end credits - Fixed a bug where counter-killing with the bow does not always work
- NPCs spawned too far away could end up being of the wrong type
- 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 - player would always get immediately detected when performing an unarmed stealth assassination in another guard's back - Under rare circumstances, the crowd would stop spawning
- Fixed an animation glitch when interrupting the reception from high profile jump
- Fixed various occurrences of missing sounds
- In some cases, the Animus Database sound ambiance was not stopped when exiting
- Various stats and leaderboards were not showing up properly
- Online shop could sometimes appear empty if fetching the data from Xbox Live is taking too long
- Mission "RETURN TO ABSTERGO" - fixed a bug where the player would lose control over Desmond during a fight if he lures and kills some guards in the wrong area
- Mission would not continue if the player decides to climb the wall instead of using the ladder
- Mission "JOHNSON'S ERRAND" - fixed a bug where the game would remain stuck if the player runs during the black screen that occurs after exiting the tavern
- Mission "THE SURGEON" - Charles Lee could fall in the water and die while following the player, causing the mission to fail, if the player decides to take a certain path that involves jumping over the water
- Mission "THE SURGEON" - fixed a bug where we would show the desync effect if the player throws one of the target in the water, even though the mission is not really failed
- Mission "WELCOME TO BOSTON" - The courier side-quest next to the general store would not start properly
- Mission "EXECUTION IS EVERYTHING", fixed a bug where the mission would not continue if the NPCs you are eavesdropping react to a dead body

Full details about the patch can be found over at Ubisoft's forums.

It's the new trend lately. Release a bug ridden piece of shit and require a 2gb or more Day-1 Patch. Some call it drm I call it idiocy.

MoH style.

Do you guys not understand that by the time they get these games to disk, they've had weeks to improve the game? They don't just sit on their ass. It's a good thing they continue to support their games.

not sure about you but "supporting" a game 24 hours BEFORE realising it is less than indicative of proficiency.

It'd be really nice if games were released in working order. Not strangling people's bandwidth with patches.

^ Indeed. I would rather have them delay the game and polish it.

The games coming out anymore aren't even worth buying at release. I usually wait about 6 mos. to a year after they are released because by then the game designers usually have all the major bugs worked out and will usually have add on content with the game and by then they are already discounted to at least half the release price. Yes, I may be somewhat behind my friends in the newest games, but at least I don't have to spend a crapload of time downloading all those damn patches though.

It's not all games, but it does seem to be the majority of them. I didn't have any problems that I noticed playing Borderlands 2 on day one.

Ubisoft is a top offender in the "release it now, patch it later" category. How many games have they shipped out that they abandoned that never got fixed?
