As you well know by now, on the occasion of the fire that caused considerable damage to the cathedral of Notre Dame, Ubisoft decided to give everyone the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity, available on the Uplay client.
Such an event prompted mass players to redeem and play the free title, which caused a veritable collapse of the servers. This situation then forced the French company to run for cover and, therefore, this morning there was hour-long maintenance which made it possible to expand the number of servers to handle such a large number of connected players. What happened is really special, since the game has been on the market for 4 years and never needed a similar intervention from the developers.
We remind you that Assassin’s Creed Unity includes an online cooperative mode with 4 player support. In this mode, it is possible to face short missions in the company of friends or casual players, each marked by a symbol that highlights the difficulty.
About the catastrophic fire of Notre Dame, did you know that Ubisoft will contribute economically to the reconstruction of the cathedral? Unity players have also decided to pay tribute to the historic building by posting some tweets.
This is to let you know that we'll be performing a scheduled maintenance on #AssassinsCreedUnity to increase server capacity on April 19 at 7AM UTC | 3AM EDT.
