Ubisoft has rolled out a new patch for Assassin’s Creed Unity that adds more fixes to the game, but also drops the requirement of needing the companion app to obtain certain treasures and unlockables. Users may still open the app and play Initiates as much as they would like, but progress on their phone will not unlock items in the main game.

In Assassin’s Creed Unity, all blue and gold chests in game required a certain level of completion in the companion app, otherwise you’d miss out on some valuable upgrades and resources. The app was decently constructed but required a lot of work just to unlock one chest in game.

As of this writing, the patch that severs ties with the companion app, as well as other fixes, releases today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners. PC gamers will have access to the patch tomorrow, according to Ubisoft.

A number of other fixes have been addressed and you can read the full release notes here. Most of the fixes look fairly minor in comparison to the news about the companion app. All in all, this is great news because I can finally go back and start playing Assassin’s Creed Unity again!
