The first Assassin’s Creed Unity DLC will be given away for free following the game’s flawed launch.
The announcement was made by Ubisoft CEO Yannis Mallat on the developer’s website, who said that “the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues”.
The post continued: “I want to sincerely apologise on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.
“We’ve been working hard to fix the problems players are reporting, and the patches we have released so far have resolved many of them.”
As a result of the technical issues, Ubisoft has decided to give the Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC away for free to everyone. No release date for the content has been announced, but it is expected “soon”.
Moreover the game’s Season Pass will be discontinued. According to Mallat, existing holders “will be offered the choice of one additional game from a selection of Ubisoft titles for free”.
The choice of games includes: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends and Just Dance 2015. Further details on how Season Pass holders are able to obtain their free title will be revealed soon.
Mallat concluded: “We will continue striving to make Assassin’s Creed one of the most ambitious and innovative franchises on the market, and we thank you for your continued loyalty and support.”
Assassin’s Creed Unity launched on Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
