Yesterday, we reported on an issue affecting main campaign progress in Assassin's Creed III upon downloading the new Hidden Secrets DLC, available a week early for Season Pass holders. Ubisoft responded to the issue last night, advising a course of action for anyone planning to download the DLC while the studio works on a fix for the bug.
"Just a quick heads up, we're able to reproduce this issue at the studio and are working on a fix/workaround," Ubisoft Community Developer, Gabe Graziani wrote on the game's forums. "From what we can tell, this problem seems to be rare and should generally only affect a very small number of players. That said, we're taking the speedy and complete resolution of this very seriously."
Graziani also gave advice to anyone looking to download the DLC: "AVOIDING THIS BUG: Do not load your saved AC3 game while the DLC is downloading in the background. This appears to be the key trigger for this bug. You can do anything else you want to do, just don't load up your saved game and play it while the DLC is downloading."
Assassin's Creed III's The Hidden Secrets DLC is available to download for Season Pass holders now, and will be available to everyone else on December 11th. It includes three extra missions, including the Lost Mayan Ruins, the Ghost of War and a Dangerous Secret, for over an hour of extra gameplay, as well as two single-player costumes and two new multiplayer characters: the Redcoat and the Sharpshooter.
