Ubisoft apologises for Assassin's Creed Unity with free DLC

As a way of saying sorry for selling a bug-riddled Assassin's Creed Unity to gamers, Ubisoft will release the game's first downloadable content pack, Dead Kings, free of charge.

"We know that it was a highly-anticipated moment for many of you," said Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto CEO Yannis Mallat, "as you looked forward to taking part in the first truly next generation Assassin’s Creed game."

"Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologise on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin's Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential."

As they've already purchased all Assassin's Creed Unity DLC, Ubisoft will offer Season Pass holders a free game instead. They can choose from Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, and Just Dance 2015.

Season Pass holders will also get additional content, including the upcoming sidescroller Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.

"Obscene" Dragon Age: Inquisition pulled in India

Electronic Arts has pulled Dragon Age: Inquisition from store shelves in India due to the country's obscenity laws.

Dragon Age: Inquisition allows players to engage in same-gender relationships if they choose, and it was initially believed that this was the so-called "obscene" content in question.

Indian TV station NDTV reported that the game's local distributor, Milestone Entertainment, pulled the game due to its same-sex relationships.

Gamers queuing for GTA V midnight launch robbed at gunpoint

Armed robbers have held up a GameStop and its customers who were queuing for the midnight launch of Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

At around 9.30pm Monday, local time, three masked men entered the Texan store and held everyone at gunpoint, reports the ABC. The criminals tasered one customer then took everyone's money and phones, and cleaned out the store's cash register.

A store clerk was able to place a tracking device in the bag with the cash, but it appears the crooks found and disposed of it shortly after fleeing the scene.

The tasered customer was not admitted to hospital, no one else was hurt.

Deputies are now searching for the robbers.

Rockstar is rushing to patch a bug that is preventing some gamers from playing GTA Online on console.

The bug appears to only be affecting those who haven’t played GTA Online this year, and throws up the following error when they attempt to log in: "No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account."

The bug is also blocking attempts to transfer Grand Theft Auto 5 profiles to new-gen consoles.
