Ubisoft is set to change their review policy, the published has revealed.

The change comes following the criticism surrounding the post-release embargo of Assassin’s Creed Unity, which was greeted to mixed reviews.

Speaking to the BBC, a Ubisoft spokesperson said: “The nature of games themselves and the way they are being reviewed is changing, as evidenced by games like Assassin’s Creed Unity, Destiny and The Crew – games that have significant online components.

“Having the online elements available and having populated worlds is essential to creating a representative and complete experience for reviewers.”

The spokesperson continued: “Achieving this prior to launch is incredibly complex, which is why some games are being reviewed much closer – or as was the case with Destiny, even after – the game launches.

“We are working to adapt our services and communications with consumers accordingly, both by changing the way we work with reviewers and by offering customers open betas or other early access to some games, all so that they have the information they need and want.”

Assassin’s Creed Unity launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Friday, November 14th, 2014.
