Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s release has been marred by a lot of technical issues and Ubisoft have now released a statement to inform players that they are no longer selling the season pass.
Via their official website, the developer has apologised for the game’s troubled release and announced compensation for people who have bought the game and those that have pre-paid for the season pass.
Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallet began his statement with an apology, saying, “Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues… I want to sincerely apologise on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team.”
In a Q&A session, Mallet outlined the compensation for players who have already purchased the game. A single player DLC expansion entitled ‘Dead Kings’, that was scheduled to be part of the season pass, will now be free to everyone.’Dead Kings’ will once again follow Arno Dorian as he travels to the city of Saint Denis, after the events of the main game. It will also add more missions for Paris as well as more weapons, gear and skills.
As a result, the season pass has been cancelled and anyone that has pre-ordered it has been offered further compensation. They will be offered a free game and can choose from: Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2015. This is in addition to the already promised DLC from the season pass.
In the meantime, Mallet insisted Ubisoft “are committed to delivering further fixes for other issues you’ve raised,” and has said they still want feedback from anyone experiencing issues.
