Latest Assassin’s Creed Unity Patch Removes The Need For Companion App

Ubisoft has released a new patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity which unlocks the rewards previously tied to the game’s companion app and Initiates web service. The patch is available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Initially players needed to download and play Unity’s mobile/tablet app to unlock the blue chests that cover the main game’s map. These contain in-game money and new equipment, as well as the custom outfit of Assassin’s Creed 1 hero Altair.

Many players were not happy with the idea of content in the main game being locked away in this manner. The new patch also removes the need to log into Ubisoft’s Initiates web service which was made to track your progress through the entire Assassin’s Creed Series.

As a player would level up, the gold chests dotted over the main Unity map would unlock, revealing outfits from the series’ other main protagonists.

Ubisoft’s full patch notes lie below.
