Assassin's Creed Unity Crash Workaround

The Assassin's Creed blog has details on an issue Ubisoft has identified in Assassin's Creed Unity that causes the game to crash when pressing the "continue" button in the stealth/action sequel, which does not seem like such an obscure action that it should have escaped notice during testing. While they don't yet have a fix, they offer a temporary workaround, saying deleting your game contacts should prevent the problem from occurring. Here are the details:
We have discovered one of the issues that may cause the game to crash at the main menu after pressing the CONTINUE button. This issue affects all platforms.

The team is working hard on a fix for those players that have been affected by this. However, for players who haven’t experienced this issue, we highly recommend you take the following steps to prevent a crash:

  • Do not add any IN-GAME RECENT PLAYER as a GAME CONTACT
  • If you already have GAME CONTACTS, perform the following to remove them:

    My Brotherhood > My Contacts > Game Contacts (using RB/R1) > Focus on a Contact (LS) > More Actions (Y/Triangle) > Remove from contacts.

If you are still experiencing a crash at the main menu even after the above steps, then please file a ticket at support.ubi.com.
