EGM’s TAKE: Bravo to Ubisoft for doing what they should to fix any issues gamers are having. Although many will argue, and rightfully so, with this many fixes needed, maybe the game came out of oven a bit under-cooked. Also, it should be noted this patch is currently for consoles only, so PC gamers will have to sit tight for a bit longer.
