Assassin's Creed: Unity has been plagued with issues since release. There have been bugs and performance issue's galore. The launch was a complete mess! However, despite the fact that Ubisoft have released a broken game we have to give them credit for coming out and admitting that they got it wrong.

Yannis Ballat, the boss at Ubisoft Montreal has written an apology to all those who bought the game:

The launch of Assassin’s Creed Unity was a highly-anticipated moment for me and for our development teams around the world who dedicated a tremendous amount of energy, passion and skill to the game’s creation. For us, it was the culmination of years of work on new technologies, the development of multiple innovations -- including an all-new game engine -- and an evolution of the Assassin’s Creed franchise’s core pillars. More importantly, we know that it was a highly anticipated moment for many of you as well, as you looked forward to taking part in the first truly next generation Assassin’s Creed game.

Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologize 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.

As a peace offering Ubisoft have announced that the upcoming DLC titled "Dead Kings" will be free. All those who purchased the season pass (which will already include this DLC) will get a free game. The games to choose from are Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, and Just Dance 2015.

Ubisoft, we accept your apology. Just don't do it again.
