Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass Cancelled, Ubisoft Giving Free Game and DLC


It seems things keep getting worse for Ubisoft with Assassin’s Creed Unity. German website Gamer’s Global is reporting that Ubisoft is cancelling Unity’s DLC season pass.

Apparently they will be refunding the cost of the season pass to buyers through giving them a free Ubisoft game and the DLC ‘The Dead Kings’ for free as well.

As of this posting, Unity’s season pass was removed from PSN and Xbox Live so it appears that this story will have some truth to it. Ubisoft has been taking a beating since releasing Assassin’s Creed Unity in a broken, unfinished state earlier this month.

While I’m sure hard-working Ubi employees are stressing out over this, it is good to see a major publisher actually be held accountable for their actions.

UPDATE: Ubisoft has confirmed this news after the initial rumor started this morning. Ubisoft’s Yannis Mallat revealed that Season Pass owners will be getting a free Ubisoft game like originally rumored and that all AC:U buyers will get the Dead Kings DLC.

AC:U season pass buyers will get to choose from The Crew, Far Cry , Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, or Just Dance 2015 as their free game.

    props to ubisoft , plenty of people like the game even with its glitches and free stuff is always welcome.

  • J Vega

    How do we get the free game?

    • It aint really free

      Is it really free? I think not…you still dropped the cash for the Season pass. So, basically whatever the Season pass cost is what you get the game for.

      • disqus_1dQzKD1n4Z

        But you are still getting ALL the content for the Season pass. Not just dead kings. So you lose nothing from your original spending and gain a game on top, calling that game free is not a stretch then.

        For me it’s less exciting as I already own the 3 best games on the list, but meh whatever, a free game is a free game, I might go alternative and pick just dance.

  • Arntzen

    WOW! This came on me as a huge surprise, but will we be able to get the “Chronicles” thing then?

  • kevin

    The Crew for me .

  • pterois

    What about the China DLC?

    • disqus_1dQzKD1n4Z

      We are still getting that, including whatever else there was on the list.

      • pterois

        Nice.

  • Patrick Serrano

    wow i could have used my refunded money for something else instead of a game, pfff stealing my money

    • disqus_1dQzKD1n4Z

      You still get everything in that was originally in the season pass. But because there are giving away a part of season pass content for free, they are compensating that by giving us a free game. Not a bad deal.

    What about the other content from the Season Pass?

    Season Pass holders will continue to have access to a variety of additional content, including Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.

  • Giuseppe Nelva

    Sony probably didn’t want this to happen since they need the money they get from the season pass.

    • Tha Truth

      Sony didn’t make the game you ignorant little mongrel, it’s Ubisoft who made it. What kind of a spastic are you?

      • Guest

        One like you, a $0N¥ pauper.

        • YOUDIEMOFO

          Funny how the “paupers” are the ones buying the cheaper console……..

          Is that not what you are getting at??

          Go troll somewhere else as you have to much time on your hands.

          • Jon Wilson

            People bought PS4s for $90…

          • YOUDIEMOFO

            For people being smarter than their retailers…..? Are you mad brah…….?

          • Jon Wilson

            Of course I’m not mad… I think it’s EXCELLENT!! Stickin’ it to the man yo!

        • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

          Pauper? Which console is actually cheaper now you f-ing moron? Apparently paupers buy xbone.

        • Tha Truth

          It seems like this “Guest” has some severe emotional and mental health problems that have absolutely nothing to do with gaming and seems to be blaming Sony for all of his personal issues.
          He clearly needs professional help and would also benefit from buying a PS4, at least that way he’d have some decent games to play to take his mind off things, rather than spend his entire worthless existence on the internet calling everybody he meets a “pauper” because he doesn’t have any friends and gets bullied at school.

        • demderp

          You are pure evil and deranged human waste that can only scream lies and sick, evil hatred onto the internet that any sane, normal person would look at with revulsion and horror. You are worthless and evil human waste seeping onto the internet that needs to be removed.

          You blindly hate and lie about a corporation, pieces of plastic, and any exclusive games on it. Nobody sane or reasonable will ever consider your blind and hateful opinions on Playstation games. You are just another ignorant, blind fanboy flinging feces and screaming.

          This is the extent of a microsoft shill’s ability to argue. They either blatantly lie, make delusional predictions that never happen, blindly hate on anything Playstation, or just fling feces and scream. Another sick, dumb, evil microsoft shill flinging feces in the face of facts, reality, and reasonable arguments.

          You are mentally diseased, blind, lying, dumb, ignorant, hypocritical, worthless, pure evil fanboy waste.

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, ignorance, trolling, and blind hate. All of your lies and blind hatred only make you look deranged and sick to normal, sane people.

          More pure evil microsoft shill fanboy waste invading disqus to spread Lies, Ignorance, Blind Hatred.

          You are mentally diseased, lying, vastly ignorant and stupid, worthless, hypocritical, pure evil microsoft shill human waste.

          Big surprise, another article swarming with sick microsoft shill waste spreading lies, ignorance, and blind hatred about Playstation. They are a pestilence.

          Ignorant, sick, shills screaming blind hatred and lies about a corporation, pieces of plastic, any exclusive games on it, and anyone who likes playing on it. Sad.

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, ignorance, trolling, and blind hate. All of your lies and blind hatred only make you look deranged and sick to normal, sane people.

          You are clearly mentally ill and a pathological liar on top of a blind, sick, and evil fanboy.

          You are a Pathological Liar that continues to Pathologically Lie even after being Corrected Multiple Times.

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, ignorance, trolling, and blind hate. All of your lies and blind hatred only make you look deranged and sick to normal, sane people.

          Your Constant Pathological Lies to fuel a deranged hatred of pieces of plastic prove you have mental issues.,

          • Jon Wilson

            That was a lot of words…

    • Kozom

      Wow, talk about uninformed. Do you even play videogames?

    • hesoyamdonMonster

      lol !! what involvement does sony have ac unity ?

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      You’re an f-ing idiot plain and simple.

      • rudero

        I know. I bought a PS4.

  • benbenkr

    Meh. Bought a broken game just to be offered another potentially broken game (The Crew). FC4 and WD aren’t exactly solid experiences either btw.

    • ukps4gamer

      Farcry 4 is awesome wtf are you on?
      Have you even played it? Ffs

      • benbenkr

        Yeah because every human must agree on a single opinion. FC4 isn’t awesome, that’s my opinion. Don’t agree? Oh well. You’re entitled to yours, I’m entitled to mine.

        • Michelle H.

          If you haven’t played the game though, your opinion is flawed and has no weight behind it. That;s like me saying yeah, I know everyone says Paris is a romantic place to vacation, but having never been there I can say Alaska is a better choice. (Please note that some people would choose Alaska, but having not been there my statement has no gravity to it.)

          • benbenkr

            Yeah, why would I say FC4 wasn’t a very solid experience if I’ve not played the game otherwise? Oh because this is the internet and you’d automatically assume that everyone who doesn’t have a similar opinion to you have not played the game? Stereotype much?

            I’ve played FC4 but I’ve not completed it. I was about 7 hours in and didn’t feel like continuing anymore beyond that, simply because I felt bored. So there you go.

  • Jessika S.

    They are finally doing something right it doesn’t forgive the broken game but this will teach them to put in the work and not just rush things out to just take our money.

  • Fluffy

    how do you get the free games?

  • supersungin

    haha ubifail

  • Oh, Ubisoft!!!

    If they cancelled the Season Pass…is it really a free game then? Nope!!!!!

  • Tarkona

    I’d be so friggin pissed if I bought that pass. You won’t give me what I paid for, but you’re gonna let me pick another game I have 0 interest in instead of a refund?!!? PhaQ Ubishit! You know why your games don’t sell well on Wii U? Because Wii U gamers are smarter than that.

    • Anonymous

      Because WiiU gamers have no taste.

      • Tarkona

        Did I strike a nerve?

  • Melissa Rossetti
