So I got my hands on one of the early copies of AC Syndicate. As I was playing through the first 3 sequences, there was no trouble at all. But then suddenly - BAM! Most of the characters just vanished into oblivion and I was left with invisible men & women holding different objects as they play their roles in a cutscene. I restarted the game but this bug is reappearing in almost every cutscene henceforth. It ruins the fun for me, so I'm just either gonna roam around in the open world or not play at all until a second patch is released (Note: The first patch was released today to fix framerate issues).
Anyhow, here's a link to the video itself, check it out:

The patch launches with the game. A little bit under 24 hours. It will most likely be in that patch.

Earlier today (or yesterday since it's now 2:30AM) I was watching the IGN Plays from two (or three now) days ago. It showed that scene and the same thing happened to them. They found it quite funny they were using PS4. If you would like I could find the video again and post the time it occurs.

EDIT: Since I'm going to bed shortly I thought I'd Post the link.......HOWEVER the video DOES contain SPOILERS at certain points so be careful if anyone decides to watch anything besides my point of time. And for those who don't want to know anything DON'T click. Anyway......... http://www.ign.com/videos/2015/10/19/assassins-creed-syndicate-early-gameplay-ign-plays-live-101915 at the 98:14 mark.

I find the debates about Unity conflated:


This is a buggy game, with
This is an awful game

I don't think the patched Unity was as awful a game as some make out (though it has issues).

The disappointment of any 'high profile' bugs in ACS is that it moves the news narrative away from the game to the bugs, when Ubisoft's reputation in this area is less than stellar.
