Assassin’s Creed Unity’s “Patch 4,” the one that should fix most of the open-world game’s remaining issues, will be released on Monday, December 15 across all platforms, Ubisoft has announced on its website.

As previously explained, this patch will address a long list of issues, and should improve stability, performance, online matchmaking, and connectivity overall. You can read the full Assassin’s Creed Unity Patch 4 update notes through our previous coverage.

Finally, Ubisoft says PC players using AMD video cards should install the latest drivers before applying the update on Monday.

Unity was released in November, though it–like other big-name games this year–suffered through some technical troubles out of the gate. Ubisoft has released a number of patches so far, and is even offering up free DLC and full-games to apologize for the bugs.

[UPDATE] As it turns out, the decision to remove Warface from Xbox 360 came from the game’s publisher, Microsoft, according to a Crytek representative.

“With Microsoft acting as publisher for Warface on Xbox 360, we are bound by their decision to phase out the game on their console,” a Crytek representative told Game Informer. “We appreciate their efforts in supporting Warface up to this point, but, like the many players we’re hearing from, are sad to see the game leave from Xbox 360.”

For its part, Microsoft offered its own statement on the Xbox Forums.

“We’re always evaluating our portfolio to ensure that the experiences available on Xbox suit the needs of our community,” the company said. “Player demand and creative direction sometimes mandate that we shift our focus onto other games and opportunities.”

The original story is below.

Less than a year after free-to-play shooter Warface arrived on Xbox 360 in April, developer Crytek today announced plans to shut it down. The German studio wrote in a message on Facebook that the game will officially close on February 1, 2015.

Existing users can continue to play, though effective immediately, Crytek will no longer accept new Warface players on Xbox 360. In addition, current players will no longer be able to purchase additional Warface “Kredits,” the game’s virtual currency.

Crytek did not say why it is choosing to close the Xbox 360 version of Warface. The company did, however, thank players for their support.

“To all our Xbox 360 players, thank you for choosing to spend your time playing Warface,” Crytek said. “We hope you’ll become part of the vibrant community enjoying regular new content and Co-op and Versus action–subscription free–on PC.”

The Xbox 360 version of Warface is billed as “free,” though an Xbox Live Gold subscription ($ 60/year) is required to play. The PC version, which has more than 25 million users, is entirely free, though of course you can pay for extra items with real-world money.
