Ubisoft has had a rough launch for Assassin's Creed Unity. From lukewarm reviews to huge graphical bugs and more, the launch of Assassin's Creed Unity has been anything but smooth. In fact people have had so many issues with Unity that as a way to make up for the issues Ubisoft is giving the first DLC away for free to all players. Those who bought a season pass can get a free game from a list that includes FarCry 4. 
Ubisoft has apologized for the issues and they say they are continuing to work on improving Assassin's Creed Unity.
