Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft’s latest forray into the world of Assassin’s Creed has been an uncomfortable affair for the developer-publisher that has seemingly been constantly under fire in recent time for shoddy ports and sub par “finished” products which fail to meet consumer expectations.

Ubisoft PR Managers are blaming AMD GPU and CPU setups for the poor condition of the port which, whilst understandable from a technical stand point, does nothing to lift the fault from their shoulders. It is, afterall, the job of the developer to optimize a game before launch.

The official line from the PR team reads, “We are aware that the graphics performance of Assassin’s Creed Unity on PC may be adversely affected by certain AMD CPU and GPU configurations. This should not affect the vast majority of PC players, but rest assured that AMD and Ubisoft are continuing to work together closely to resolve the issue, and will provide more information as soon as it is available.”

On the other end of the spectrum, wccfTech reached out independently and found that the problem lies in bottlenecking that sees come draw calls relating to textures and npc’s being “culled”. One Email finishes by saying ,” Simply put, its a very very bad port for the PC Platform and an unoptimized (some would even go as far as saying, unfinished) title on the consoles.” A sentiment shared by gamers and critics alike.

    What a total bs comment. Is ubi forgetting that both the consoles are 100% AMD hardware? The game is crap, it isn’t even close to finished. What we are playing is an alpha. A game that is 6-8 months away from actual release with no polish but WHOOPS ubi released it.

    I’m also absolutely certain this game uses nvidia gameworks which buy nvidias own admission means it will run poorly on AMD systems because nvidia ganeworks cripples performance on AMD GPUs. Its anti competitive bs and needs to stop.

    AMD is open with its tech for the benefit of all gamers. Nvidia isn’t. They are in it for nothing more than money and we suffer for it. Everything they do is closed which means AMD has to hack theor way around it with driver updates.
