The upcoming PC version of Assassin's Creed 3 will launch with fewer bugs than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, Ubisoft has reassured.

A new patch is in the works to squash glitches on all versions. It will be the second title update for the game following a meaty patch available day-one.

The PC will launch with both of these patches included, Assassin's Creed 3 community man Gabe Graziani said during a Reddit developer Q&A.

"[The PC version] will include all of the console patches out at the time (so, that includes any patches we might be releasing in between now and PC launch). In addition, PC has a special patch designed to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

"We've added extra DX11 support for the PC version, so you'll notice some significant increases in texture resolution (double-res in most cases, but quadruple in some), tessellation (which is like, the new DX11 hotness) and some other shader improvements that will have an impact, but aren't all that sexy to enumerate in a Reddit post, hehe.
