Ubisoft has identified the cause crashing on all three platforms on which Assassin’s Creed Unity has been released. For the time being, you won’t be able to use one of the basic social features.

"We have discovered one of the issues that may cause the game to crash at the main menu after pressing the continue button," the company writes. "This issue affects all platforms."

On the live updates site for the title, Ubsioft says that if you add recent players to the “game contacts” section you may experience crashing. Further, if you have already added anyone to “game contacts,” you should delete those.

Ubisoft says this should repair crashing at the main menu. For more on Assassin’s Creed Unity’s litany of problems, visit our previous coverage.

Our Take
We have now entered the realm of ridiculous. This is a basic game feature that has appeared in many titles, and it just doesn’t work. Ubisoft should be ashamed of the state in which Assassin’s Creed Unity was released. At this point, it’s hard for the average consumer to know if there is a good game underneath it all, because so much of it is broken.
