For those in North America, the more “new gen” Assassin’s Creed, Unity, is out tomorrow. Many of them will be excited to jump in and kill people together in the game’s new co-operative Assassin modes. Unfortunately, they’ll be greeted with a great big patch before they can dispense revolutionary justice. Yes, Assassin’s creed Unity has a day one patch, that clocks in at over 900Mb.

Here’s what the patch fixes, though it’s an image and I’m far too lazy to type it all out.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
