Assassin’s Creed Unity Video Shows Game’s Frame-Rate Issues, Even After Massive Patch

Even though Ubisoft recently released a massive patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity that was supposed to fix many of the problems in the game, it appears as if the frame-rate drops have not improved much.

In a Digital Foundry video, the frame-rates of both the un-patched Assassin’s Creed game and the patched version are compared side by side. While it appears as if the patched version does run a little more smoothly than the original version of the game, there are still quite a lot of frame-rate drops that have not been fixed.

According to calculations done by, the patch only provided a 1.9 percent boost in frame-rate in single player modes, and a mere 1.6 percent boost in multiplayer modes. On average, single player runs at around 25.07fps, while multiplayer runs at 24.29. Not great, especially since these numbers are looking at the patched version of Unity.

What do you think of the video? Have you noticed a difference in your copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity?
