We are currently working on our next update that will help address some of the specific issues some players are having, including:
Arno falling through the ground.
Game crashing when joining a co-op session.
Arno getting caught inside of hay carts.
Delay in reaching the main menu screen at game start.
In addition, we are already looking into many of the other issues you’ve told us about and we have more updates planned. This list doesn’t capture everything, but here are the most widely-reported problems we’ve heard about from you:
Frame rate issues.
Graphical and collision issues.
Matchmaking co-op issues.
Helix Credits issues.
This is making hold off on trading in my copy to wait and see, don't mind playing Dragon Age and Far Cry until this gets fixed.
@sethphotopoulos: Your frame rate does look quite smoother than mine. Are you playing on a disc version? Or the PSN version?
I'm playing the disc version by the way. If the game is smoother on the PSN version I'd be willing to purchase it online instead (I REALLY want to love this game, I've had a great time with all the previous ones).
@bloodtooth: I guess I just wanted to believe :( I just got used to stable 30+ frame rates and am just finding it incredibly difficult to focus on the game when it runs this way. Probably my PC roots messing with me. If only it ran smoother.
@SomberOwl: Let's agree to disagree, I can see a lot of people are finding the frame rate just fine, wish I could too but it simply feels too weird for my taste. I'm only still on sequence 4 so maybe it gets better down the line...
All I know is that I can't wait for the triple-a games coming next week hoping they play smoothly and hope I'll get to play AC unity on a gaming PC one day to experience the full beauty of the game without the 20~26fps range
@bloodtooth: I own the game and can honestly tell that the framerate is way below par. The game does great things, but I hate feeling like I'm owning a $600 PC playing Crysis again. I thought Next-gen meant not having to worry about that. I've never had an issue like this on consoles before. If it was isolated I'd be okay but it's constantly in the low 20s. Hell the Xbox One version even runs better according to this video:
Also can't believe the lack of shadows, amount of pop-ins, ugly textures in the distance... For every "Wow this looks gorgeous" there's at least 10 "Eww what's that in the back", hoping patches will fix things but eh, thank god for Far Cry and Dragon Age next week.
