Ubisoft cancels Unity season pass; offers game owners free DLC and Season pass holders a free game


Ubisoft cancelled the season pass for Assassin's Creed Unity and will be offering free DLC to everyone who purchased the game, as well as a free Ubisoft title to anyone who has purchased any special edition which includes the season pass or have purchased the season pass individually.

Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Montreal & Toronto took to the Ubisoft blog to issue an official apology for the state that Assassin’s Creed Unity launched in.



“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. 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,” he said.

“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.”

Anyone who owns Assassin’s Creed Unity will receive the Dead Kings DLC free of charge.

As for those who bought the season pass - which includes Dead Kings DLC, Ubisoft will offer a free game from a selection of recently-released titles. Titles include: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Just Dance 2015.

The publisher has not outlined exactly how this scheme will work out, but if you are eligible you'll find out in the Q&A here.

found a site which still had the season pass on sale last night after the announcement (they give you codes straight away - real store) - purchased and redeemed - going to get FC4 on Ps4. The patch makes the game really smooth now! alotho graphics look a little worse after the patch - may have adjusted the resolution?

yeah I already had the season pass, but i have watch dogs and FC4, not too keen on the crew, or the other games as i have ACBF already, might sell far cry and download the free one

AC is actually pretty much perfect now on PS4 at least - no issues at all last night when I went on it for a few hours - nice and smooth in the towns running around as well

"But I haven't had any problems" isn't a good counter-argument and it never will be

Yep, my Granddad smoked 40 fags a day and died of natural causes at 93, doesn't mean smoking can't give you cancer.

I had 2 glitches through the entire playthrough, I think it's getting bandwagon bad press, I have glitches and crashes with most games, I didn't experience an increase with ACU in comparison...

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
