So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the release of Patch 5.

Maybe they've fixed the pop in, maybe they've fixed the horrible texture streaming... NOPE !

I also cant unlock all the blue chest as it clearly states that I should be able to.

Here's a few videos taken this morning after the installation of patch 5.

Sorry, but I've had enough of Ubisoft. I've been a huge fan of the series but Unity / Watch dogs has put me off buying any more of their games.

That's unfortunate. Hopefully this gets sorted out.

But I do encourage you not to purchase Victory upon release.

Aw, I thought they fixed the first issue. =(

As long as the ULC weapons become usable, I can wait for the next patch.

next patch.

Oh lord another one?

5 patches is comical enough.

We're getting 6?

7 dare I say?

Can I get an 8 in the house?

I mean did AC3 get this many patches? I wasn't around then. It's still glitchy as hell but I don't mind, really.

Fatal-Feit
02-18-2015, 10:02 PM
You know what, the more the better. Assuming they put as much effort into the next one.

AC3 had 6 patches.

AC3 had 6 patches.

Oh lord.

I'm a nintendo baby so the concept of even 1 patch still baffles me.

Beta test your games better, people.

I'd say I wouldn't mind the 5 patches if they all were like 10MB, which is already more than some people can take. But seeing that one of the patches had a size of nearly 7GB, I really start thinking about the concept of releasing games too early in an unfinished and unpolished state...

Saying that in other words would have ended up in a disaster, so I kept it calm.

It appears as if Patch 5 has opened up a bug in my game. I never wrestled with any bugs so it's a bit frustrating.

anyways, I'm unable to use smoke bombs now without Arno immediately turning into a motionless putz. Or, rather, I should say, cowardly puppy, as he can still up move around and equip medicine, but that's it. I can't attack, dodge, or parry at all after using a smoke bomb. If I leave the fight it may fix it, but that isn't exactly a workaround given that there are various times where combat is mandated and without smoke bombs the game can become an exercise in tedium given how many weapons,tools, techniques were removed from the combat system for Unity.

Question is - is the performance fixed?

Can you confirm wether or not the companion missions are required to get 100% in the progress tracker?

Also, are helix artifacts still locked without completing companion missions?

I always had that problem. Thats one of the biggest things i hated about the combat.

I can confirm that this has been a bug for quite a while, happens quite regularly for me. Getting out of combat sometimes won't even fix it, but this is limited to those NPCs who I were fighting, works normally on anyone else (unti they bug as well). Assassinating them still works though, just no open combat moves.

That is a huge issue with me about the new combat system. I'm glad to hear its a bug and not Ubisoft's idea of making combat harder.

Yep, what sucks though is that it's clearly not on their to-fix list, as this crap has been around since the start. Quite embarrasing after 5 patches..

I hope it isn't in AC Victory... i'm still debating whether i should pre-order it, so i can pay it off ahead of time or wait for the reviews and pay the whole amount if it sounds worth it... :-/

My time of pre-ordering ubi products is long past. Gonna wait for public reactions, not just reviews, as bugs and performance issues seem to surface some time after.

Well, hopefully i'll be able to go to E3 this year and get to see the game up close. Or maybe they'll show off a playable demo at the Gamestop Expo...

I really want to see a demo of Victory as well, but quite frankly I expect it only to represent the end product in art style and gameplay features. Technical performance, graphics quality and eventual bugs remains to be seen

Yea, but thats why i would want a playable demo. I'd beta test the hell outta that game. Force them to realize that it still has bugs and need to fix them.

Betatesting is an interesting subject here. Wonder if a beta test of Unity would have led to much needed delays in order to fix uncovered issues, or if they had still pushed the holiday release.

The 5 gold diamonds level in Arno''s data.

02-19-2015, 04:57 PM
Well, I was able 100% sync the game while having 81/84 artifacts completed. I'm sure this is a bug where it displays the wrong number, because I unlocked everything I was supposed to from collecting artifacts, and the Progress Tracker shows that I've collected them all. And LOL, people are still complaining about the five diamonds.

As I put inn another thread, I can no longer use smoke bombs in combat as it freezes everything up. Not in a literal "frozen screen" sense, but upon using a bomb, Arno will decide that he no longer wishes to fight anymore and become a pacifist (true french form I say) I can't attack, dodge, or parry. The only thing I can do is equip medicine and run away (in true french form I say)



You had the jabs coming Ubisoft, you done broke my game.

Since they think they need to release a game every year, they probably pushed it...

Since the patch, I can play the game offline for the time being. But it will not connect to UPlay, the EStore, etc... There is none of this "Stability" that they were talking about. There's no connectivity at all!

I'm just SMDH here......

well now that everything has been released i have 100% completion in game.... whose idea was it to lock stuff behind an app? some of us dont have smartphones or ipads or whatever else there is. please do not do this in the future.

02-20-2015, 07:52 AM
absolutely ridiculous...remove of the companion app, now, where about everyone is done with the game...

tesselation patch...should came about one week after release...k then, fix the bigger problems first. NOW after about 14-15 weeks nothing to hear about it anymore. "let's bring the feature then when there is the next ac done and nobody does speak about the old one anymore, so that nobody can say that we doesn't bring the announced features."...

How can you even think about preordering ACV after this catastrophic release? How could ANYONE who witnessed this trainwreck?
What is wrong with us?

I decided not to purchase this game at launch because of the issues, still interested but now it's become a case of not wanting to play due to the hassle of downloading multiple gbs of patches. I think the largest game I ever downloaded was the last of us' expansion, it was about 5gb and was a fairly agonising wait but worth it! Hopefully there is some sort of revised sku like a platinum edition on the cards when it plays reasonably well, otherwise I really will have to skip this game.

So is the Helix Rift mission that allows you to unlock the Altair outfit available to play without needing to do all the 9 Pantheon companion app missions now? Or does anyone know?

I can't 100% the game because one of the nomad chests is glitched. The "Interact" prompt shows up, I hit the button, Arno kind of crouches and then nothing happens. Then the "Interact" prompt pops up again.

Those who have downloaded patch 5 for PC - how big is the patch supposed to be?

Uplay is basically forcing me to download 50GB - that's just the whole game again... says it will take 30hr+ to download.... I've cancelled the download for now but of course I can't play online... no more co-op until I either download the entire game again or ubisoft sort themselves out.... I have a feeling I'll just have to just download the entire game again... sucks!!

downloaded patch 5 and it hasn't made one bit of a difference npc are still buggy as hell,, for some reason Arno's moment seem to be more sluggish than it previously was. i really had faith in this update when i was reading about it but no just no its a fail ( well for me it is anyway ) the videos that have been posted in this thread are basically the same problems i am also having don't know if there is one last patch in the works but the length of time it had taking to release the actual fix list was a bit small imo as there is still a lot be looked at and fixed..

maybe ubisoft actually think the game is fixed there wrong. wish i never spent money on this game and also think this will be were the series ends for me. not prepared to fork out money on a new assassins creed when i haven't finished the last installment really hope there is a final patch but i have a feeling patch 5 was the last.

Edit...

Aaaaand looking through, it looks like i should take my time playing FCry4 while they sort this out. :-s

Ok, so you seem to be done patching, now you should make future physical copies up to date, print new versions so customers don't have to download tens of GBs of patches, waiting multiple days before they can play the game in its best form.
