Assassin’s Creed Unity companion app and Initiate rewards will be accessible to all

Assassin's Creed Unity patch 5

Assassin’s Creed Unity’s fifth patch is due out for the PC version tomorrow, fixing a small number of issues. It’s a far cry away from the gargantuan patches of last year, which had to deal with hundreds of bugs


One issue has persisted throughout, though: the broken companion and Initiate apps. Patch 5 solves that by giving everyone all the exclusive content without needing to mess around on phones and in browsers. 

Now, thankfully, both can be ignored. All of the content unlocked using those apps will be made accessible to all players with the new patch.

This isn’t the first time Ubisoft has done this. All the chests normally unlocked using the apps were made temporarily accessible to all players during some maintenance over the holidays. And Unity’s Dead Kings DLC was made free for all after it scrapped the season pass.

Here’s the full patch notes:
