Ubisoft says that it has identified what was causing the “no face” bug in Assassin’s Creed Unity and has now fixed it.
According to the publisher, the bug was only occurring in the PC version of the game on machines that were running two specific graphics cards. The game’s day one patch addressed the bug, so it should no longer be an issue.
“There are a number of images circulating online of character models from Assassin?s Creed Unity missing textures, dubbed the ?no face? bug,” Ubisoft wrote. “In order to find how players are encountering this issue we tested it rigorously and have discovered that this only occurs on PCs with one of two specific graphics cards, and in both cases the issue is resolved with the application of the Day 1 patch (as well as all future patches).
“This should not be affecting any players who are allowing their game to be automatically patched as recommended with updates as they are released.”
Earlier this week, Ubisoft detailed its plans for Unity’s third major patch on all platforms that will address issues with gameplay, matchmaking, connectivity, HUD, and more.
