Ubisoft has promised that the upcoming PC version of Assassin’s Creed III will come with a lot less bugs than the console versions had at launch.

A new patch is currently in the works for all versions of the game to join the first which was released on launch day. The PC launch will include both of these patches reducing the number of bugs and increasing the overall stability of the game, DirectX 11 support will also be added.

“[The PC version] will include all of the console patches out at the time (so, that includes any patches we might be releasing in between now and PC launch). In addition, PC has a special patch designed to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible,” said Assassin’s Creed III community staff member Gabe Graziani on Reddit. “We’ve added extra DX11 support for the PC version, so you’ll notice some significant increases in texture resolution (double-res in most cases, but quadruple in some), tessellation (which is like, the new DX11 hotness) and some other shader improvements that will have an impact, but aren’t all that sexy to enumerate in a Reddit post, hehe.”

“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.”

Details on the new patch are set to be released in the next week or so.
