Assassin's Creed III gets 100-plus bug fixes in Thanksgiving Patch

Life was hard in colonial America. But Assassin's Creed III showed us it wasn't the redcoats or cold New England winters that U.S. forefathers had to worry about--it was the endless glitches which saw assassins stuck in doors and hapless civilians dragged across town under wagon wheels. Ubisoft plans to stomp out many of those bugs in a patch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by the end of next week.

The Thanksgiving update's change list for single-player and multiplayer is laid out on Ubisoft's forums, both in general and in excruciating 100-item-plus detail (watch out for spoilers on the latter).

A few change list highlights are "fixed possible mission break if the player shoots the horse he's supposed to ride," "fixed the issue where the bear could flee and eventually freeze," and "prevent using anything else than the fists during all fistfights."

Fine Ubisoft, go ahead and ruin the party.
