    Assassin's Creed on the PC has numerous, numerous problems. We've talked about them at length and, for a game that we otherwise loved, it's a shame that PC gamers were given the rough end of the stick. Thankfully, Ubisoft has recognized the countless problems with the game and plans to fix some of these issues.

    Ubisoft Community Developer UbiRazz has posted a notice on the game's official forums, saying that a patch for the PC version is coming. While he concedes that the "majority of issues reported by fans" will be addressed, UbiRazz notes that the fix will come at the cost of the game's support for DirectX 10.1 graphics cards. "Our implementation [of DX10.1] removes a render pass during post-effect which is costly," he explains.

    No exact date has been given for the patch's release, but Ubisoft notes that the team is working hard to amend the problems. Now the only remaining problem is the exorbitant system requirements.
