I was playing the game before updating to the latest build and it worked, but after updating, the game crashes when trying to launch. I reported the crash reports, but also throwing a thread here for good measure.
Windows 10 preview build 20257.fe_release.201106-1554
This game has issues with stuttering and hitching when performing first/new actions and loading. This is completely unacceptable. Swing axe to break a barrel... hitch.. dive into water... hitch.. take command of boat... hitch.
The game is obviously having issues compiling the shaders at run time.. as after doing things, the shaders get cached and then it's relatively smooth. PC game developers need to give players the option to pre-compile and cache their shaders before we play the games. Having a terrible stuttery hitchy experience the first time doing anything is terrible. Ubisoft... you guys have to get on your game on start fixing and addressing these issues and optimizing better for PC players. We're a huge chunk of your userbase.. and it feels like we get hardly any optimization for our platform.
CPU utilization, shader compiling and performance needs to be improved.. please fix this, otherwise I'm not going to be buying your games anymore.
