DETAILED and SPOILER FILLED post

Hey there Assassins!

Since launch, we’ve been meticulously pouring through your comments and discussing with our Forum Managers, Customer Support Representatives, Developers… basically coordinating across every team involved in the creation and maintenance of Assassin’s Creed III, both single- and multiplayer.

With a game the size and scope of Assassin’s Creed III, it has taken an equally humongous community to ferret out the code gremlins waiting to unleash their treachery… but you’ve risen to the occasion admirably and have not hesitated to alert us on every communication channel available to you, be it Facebook, Twitter, our Forums or Customer Support call centers.

Here are just a few of the issues we are addressing in our next patch (which we’re calling the Thanksgiving Patch), due out by the end of next week:
· SINGLE-PLAYER - Returned Connor’s hood to normal behavior at the end of the game (hood remains up when in Frontier or Cities)
· SINGLE-PLAYER - Reduced difficulty of certain chases
· SINGLE PLAYER – Fixed Various visual glitches
· SINGLE-PLAYER - Fixed player spawn points to reduce desynch on spawn
· SINGLE PLAYER – Fixed rare occurrences of glitches blocking your progression in the main story & secondary missions
· MULTIPLAYER – Tweaked settings to improve connections
· MULTIPLAYER – Tweaked some of the abilities and other gameplay elements
· MULTIPLAYER – Fixed some issues with ranking

As stated above, this first patch is nearly complete and we should be rolling it out by the end of next week (provided everything goes according to plan). We will also continue working to resolve any remaining issues that have been reported (yeah, there are a few we didn’t get to in this one).

We’ll speak again before the month is out Assassins!

Wonder why they decided to keep the hood down in the Homestead... Oh well, I kinda like Connor with his hood down

Me too. I like his hairstyle and face. Adds more emotions to his actions tbh. But plenty of people don't like his hood down. They think that he looks 'stupid' and that's why they complained to ubisoft everywhere (YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter). People made a point by saying that an Assassin is not an Assassin without his/her signature hood (ACIII: Liberation heroine doesn't wear a hood by the way lol)

There is a video requesting a patch for the hood-

Oh god that was so annoying.

Also, Make it choice. I like his hood down now. Its grown on me. Seeing it back up will be a shame.

I use the pioneer robes.. so no hood effects for me. However, I do wish they mentioned some other bugs...

I despised his hood down at the start but I like it now. Eh, it doesn't really matter as I can't get the patch anyway.

did they fix the color issue with the regular outfit? the problem i have is if you choose another color scheme for his normal clothes like say black with red trim, it reverts to the normal white scheme during cutscenes. it should stay whatever color you've selected all the time.

Yeah, the only thing that has a different color is at the bottom for some reason, the color on those things on the flaps of his outfit, that's the only thing that changes color in cutscenes, the rest is default.
Don't know how that could've happen.

Did they test these, and not notice a difference in cutscenes when using a different color outfit?
Doesn't seem like much of a trouble to fix it before it even got released.
It's just a different color on the same outfit.


And I think if people wanted the hood up, they should just equip Achilles Assassin's outfit, but yeah, people preferences are different, so maybe another menu in the Animus hack, to choose Connor's hoodie.

i refuse to believe they actually made it like that on purpose. it HAS to be a glitch or something they overlooked by mistake. it shows all the weapons you have equipped during cutscenes so why not colors? especially since the colors displayed correctly on Ezio's outfits during cutscenes in the past games.

It's true. It's on purpose, there simply wasn't enough room to accommodate a cutscene for each costume colour. They revealed it in the AMA they did on Reddit the other day.

Looks pretty good. A fair few glitches I had while playing look like they have been fixed, except that weird Underground one. I don't like that they are making single player parts easier though. There should be a bit of a challenge at points in the game.

Having the Hood back up on the Assassins suit is good as well. Especially with Connor's horrible Haircut with that suit at the end of the game. Strangely other suits have a different hair style though.

Well...actually you can buy the hood in-game for almost nothing...but yeah, her main costume doesn't have it

Really? The only difference is the color, how is there not enough room to simply tell the game to put a different texture file on Connor? It's not like his wireframe is changing at all.

Glad we've got a patch heading our way,
Even from the get-go I adored this game but thought it could use a bit more polish due to the amount of glitches.

Kinda glad they're fixing the hood tbh. I'm not a big fan of Connor with the mohawk.
Still, a lot of people have become attached to having the hood down so I can't see why Ubisoft wouldnt keep it as an option
(They probably won't but they SHOULD)
