In a move that seriously makes us wonder who's fixing who here, Ubisoft rolled out a patch this morning, increasing server capacity for Assassin's Creed: Unity, whose recent giveaway resulted in people virtually flooding the servers.

You've probably heard by now that Ubisoft will be shelling out $565,000 for the reconstruction of Notre Dame cathedral, as well as providing any other assistance, which by the way is truly an exemplary move.

Ubisoft also threw in free copies of Assassin's Creed: Unity, but it seems that they underestimated the public's response, as the world plus dog seem to have rushed to get the freebie.

In fact, U-Play worked quite sluggishly that day, until Ubisoft got a hold of the situation, and yesterday, they informed customers that there will an hour of downtime so they can increase Assassin's Creed: Unity's server capacity.

The servers were adjusted today and should be ready for heavy duty, and the renewed interest in the game has not only gotten Assassin's Creed: Unity new players, it made many older ones return to the game.

Having launched in November 2014, Assassin's Creed: Unity was definitely far from perfect when it arrived, and many a story could be told of the most ridiculous, Bethesda-style bugs plaguing the game. 

Whether Ubisoft's subsequent fixes did enough to make the game a pleasant experience is where most players' tales take their own twists, but one thing  you could never take away from it - Assassin's Creed was one gorgeous game. 

It still is to be fair, which is why you'll see many of the game's fans on Ubisoft's Twitter pleading for the dev to include a photo mode as a patch or something.

The actual gaming experience will, of course, vary from person to person, but the photo mode is clear proof that Unity still boasts the looks.

Even in the worst case scenario, once you get a taste of the mechanics of old, you'll really learn to appreciate what Ubi have done with Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.
