Ubisoft is giving out Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s Dead Kings DLC for free and a game for Season Pass owners as a compensation for shipping a broken game.
The Dead Kings DLC is expected to roll out early next year, it was part of the game’s Season Pass.
Ubisoft Montreal & Toronto CEO, Yannis Mallat took over Ubisoft blog to issue a formal apology statement:
“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.
Season Pass owners on Xbox One, PS4 and PC will have an option to pick up one additional game for free from the list below:
- The Crew
- Far Cry 4
- Watch Dogs
- Assassin’s Creed Black Flag
- Rayman Legends
- Just Dance 2015
*Further information on how Season Pass owners can claim their free game will be revealed soon.
Season Pass owners will receive everything promised earlier, although the pass has been discontinued, it is no longer available to purchase.
Mallat adds, “In addition to the latest patch and this offer, we are committed to delivering further fixes for other issues you’ve raised. In the meantime, please keep your feedback coming – it has been both humbling and incredibly helpful as we continue working hard to improve the overall quality of the game.
We are hopeful that with these forthcoming updates, everyone will be able to truly enjoy their Assassin’s Creed Unity experience.
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.
