Following the launch of "Assassin's Creed Unity" on Tuesday, publisher Ubisoft has announced on its official blog that the company is working to address issues experienced by players. Errors noted by gamers eventually became subjects of online mockery, wrote Gamespot.

Ubisoft's announcement began reminding players that the game's Day 1 update has been rolled out, attending to a number of issues. The next update will be fixing specific problems such as: Arno falling through the ground; game crashing when joining a co-op session; Arno getting caught inside of hay carts and delay in reaching the main menu screen at game start.

In addition, the company claimed that it is "already looking into" other glitches encountered by users. Among them include frame rate, graphics and collision, matchmaking co-op sessions and Helix Credits.

A problem of the game running on PC was also acknowledged. Ubisoft forum community manager UbiJohkr said that the game's graphics might be affected by certain AMD CPU and GPU configurations.

The informer announced, "This should not affect the vast majority of PC players, but rest assured that AMD and Ubisoft are continuing to work together closely to resolve the issue, and will provide more information as soon as it is available."

PC World reported that complaints have flooded Ubisoft's online outlets since the game's release. But what could be the most bizarre anomaly is the "ghoulish" appearance of characters, where their faces seemed to have lost skin -- leaving eyeballs, hair and teeth behind. Who would've thought "Assassin's Creed Unity" could be gore-ish at the same time?

The outlet cited further problematic issues concerning the characters, such as erratic running, floating and contorting. See the screenshots from Steam user Retro_Apocalypse here.

Alex Navarro from Giant Bomb commented in his review that the game "never looked better than in 'Unity,' but those looks aren't enough to make up for its many technical problems."

Ubisoft encouraged players to continue reporting problems, said IGN. Progress on the addressed issues will be announced on the publisher's Live Updates Blog.

Set in the French Revolution of 1789, "Assassin's Creed Unity" chronicles the adventures of Arno Dorian, a Master Assassin. Players go through the game in stealth, equipped by choices of weapon, gear and specialized skills.

The game prides its revolutionary Paris setting that features detailed building interiors, secret underground locations and activities such as Ancestral Missions, Treasure Hunts, Murder Mysteries, Contracts and more.

"Assassin's Creed Unity" is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game may be purchased here.
