Ubisoft is known for their “love” of micro-transactions. And funnily enough, they’re also known for their buggy releases – especially when it comes to the Assassin’s Creed series. So, fittingly, the two come together today in this news piece as fans accuse the company of prioritising the rollout of micro-transactions rather than fixing the issues so prevalent in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
But surely they wouldn’t pick profit over smooth running, would they?

The frustration stems from the fact that there are still a number of game breaking bugs plaguing the game, along with countless other minor problems. Yet, the company are busy promoting all their planned – and premium – DLC. Plus, they’ve added a load of micro-transactions, as well. And the ironic thing is that these money making features are running without hiccup. Not that I’d expect it to be any different.
The other problem is the fact that, this month, we’re expecting to get another update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. One that is promised to bring with it new activities, skills and weapons. But many gamers are simply hoping it will also be full of bug fixes that address the biggest issues at hand. Otherwise, the game is going to remain unplayable for a lot of people whilst others get to enjoy the full story and then some.
It really is a tale of two halves, isn’t it?
