The team over at Digital Foundry put the latest patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity through the ringer.
So this week Ubisoft release a massive patch to address a lot of the frame-rate issues in Assassin’s Creed Unity. The patch post some slight improvement in certain troublesome spots like the big framerate dip in Sainte Chapelle.
The verdict? Slight improvements in some places while still seeing spots where the frame-rate falls under 20fps. You should note that they used a PS4 version for their tests.
While we fully believe that Assassin’s Creed Unity sees certain boosts to performance in specific scenarios, what’s clear is that overall frame-rates only see a small improvement overall across the run of play. In our clips this amounts to a 1.95 per cent boost in single-player (25.07fps average vs the pre-patch 24.59fps) and only 1.6 per cent in co-op (24.29fps vs 23.90fps). As gameplay isn’t absolutely matched, we consider this to be within the margin of error.
