Official Apology Issued

Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass Owners Get Free Game, Everyone Gets Free DLC

Today is a day for apologies apparently. Ubisoft have issued a formal apology for the state of Assassin's Creed Unity at launch - one in which an upcoming patch is needed to fix over 300 bugs. Obviously people are upset and wonder how a AAA title can be released in such an unfinished state. It looks like Ubisoft wants to try to make amends by offering some free goodies.

Global Agenda to Launch "Free Agent" Update

When Global Agenda launched a bit over a year ago (a game we thought had decent co-opability), Hi-Rez Studios originally planned for it to be a subscription-based game. This later changed when they decided they wanted to maintain a non-subscription based model where players had access to everything so long as they had purchased a retail version of the game.The subscription model never saw the light of day. The game also had a generous trial where people wanting to try out the game could have a fairly extensive experience for free with the usual limitations (e.g. level caps, chat restrictions, etc.).
