Ubisoft has today launched patch 1.03 for Assassin's Creed III, the fifth title update and another list of tweaks and fixes for Connor's single-player adventure, as well as the game's multiplayer. Title update 5 also prepares the game for the upcoming Tyranny of King Washington DLC next week.

Starting with first episode, 'The Infamy', The Tyranny of King Washington is a three episode DLC saga that sees Connor fighting against the oppression of the mad King Washington himself, as the tyrant is driven mad thanks to the power of the Apple of Eden.

Available now, the 1.03 patch fixes a whole bunch of stuff. You can check out the full list of patch notes below.

- Added support for “Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy”

I'm really looking forward to the DLC. But a part of me wants to wait just in case there is another game breaking bug :S

#5, I'm sure they will need yet another patch. WTF is with every game that is released these days needing multiple patches to fix multiple issues. It's like nobody that makes games anymore takes any pride in their work.

So they didn't even bother to fix the damn map problems yet! Where my damn markers disappear and reappear. Thanks Ubisoft for another crap patch!

@5 thought you knew that is what Western Game Developers do best.

@2 I was thinking the same thing. I wanted to wait a little bit before even downloading the new DLC to make sure there isn't any game breaking bugs. Though I will admit I seem to be one of the lucky few who didn't manage to find anything during the game and was successfully able to get 100% completion.

Lol at wipe not working, I started mp about 2 weeks ago and it was just the other day I said fuck this wipe ability it's not helping me, as far as patching I was also lucky enough to 100% with no issues which is bizarre to me when I see so much hate for this games flaws in glitching

Hmmm...I'm not seeing a mention of the Boston UFO Frontiersmen mission being fixed. It's a shame becuase I'm not spending another cent on AC3 until they fix that shit.

Like I said last time, I don't see why devs/pubs release a list of what a patch actually updates or even publicly say that they're releasing one when this is the reaction to something being fixed!

I think I'm one of the lucky ones who never had a problem with this game. I was so worried hearing everything when I was trying to perfect it but never had a problem and got to 100% Hope everything works out for those who've had problems. Looking forward to this awesome DLC.

Guarantee you this will be the LAST Ubisoft game I buy brand new because of the amount of bugs they haven't addressed in the single player. No one buys Assassin's Creed to play Multiplayer... NO ONE.

I had the Almanac glitch as well. Pissed off to no end. I won't spend another cent on this game either until it's fixed.

@7 Games have become more intricate. The code is getting bigger so the amount of bugs was inevitably going to rise as well. With a game as big as this one is it is damn near impossible to catch every bug before release. The number of testers you would need to hire is not financially feasible. Then, on top of everything, they need to fix stuff while not breaking other things, which is easier said than done. Chances are if they haven't fixed something there are other things higher on the priority list or they're still working on finding a solution that wont break other aspects of the game. This is just something you have to deal with in programing. As a consumer it's frustrating, but I can tell that I doubt it comes down to a lack of pride. I'm just grateful that we have consoles that it's possible to have patches.

@22 You're making excuses for laziness and greed. It is, in fact, very easy to catch every bug before release. 10 years ago bugs were unheard of, not because games were less intricate, but because developers didn't have the option of half-arsing it and then, when the inevitable deluge of bugs appeared, releasing a series of patches. They had to make sure it worked right first time.

Side-note: Spell check keeps underlining "DLC" and "Playthrough" but apparently "Half-arsing" is in the dictionary.

Nothing on the tracker issues, was gonna try to 1000 this game but when games have glitched achievements it's a no go.
