Ubisoft has confirmed that the upcoming PC version of Assassin’s Creed 3 will include the bug fixes that are going to appear for the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions of the game.Assassin’s Creed 3 was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 at the end of last month and is currently getting ready to debut for the PC and Wii U next week.
According to Ubisoft Montreal’s Gabe Graziani, who talked with fans on Reddit, the team took advantage of the extra development time for the PC version of the game, instead of just delaying it in order to promote sales of the console editions.
“We've added a lot more detail to the PC version and support for DX11. Stuff that we didn't really need to think about for the console versions. Considering the amount we're adding, you aren't really going to end up waiting all that long (not even a month!),” he told a fan about the delay.
What’s more, Graziani also confirmed that the PC version of the game would include the day-one patch released for Assassin’s Creed 3 on the PS3 and Xbox 360, as well as an upcoming one that should be released in the following days.
“So, the PC version will come with additional patches, both those that have been or are just about to be released on consoles as well as some specific for the PC. I would say it will be less buggy than the console versions at console launch, but that the console and PC versions will be comparable at PC launch.”
We already highlighted some of the most annoying glitches in Assassin’s Creed 3 during our Gamer Diary series about it, so it’s good to hear that the PC version will at least see some of these issues remedied ahead of its launch on November 20.
