Do I really need the new patch? I always thought that steam games are automatically updated. I'm just worried about applying this new patch and messing up a perfectly playing game. I just don't want to be excluded from multi player because I don't have the patch. Does anyone know if you are updated to this patch through Steam?
No, you don't.
Basically, there are two versions of the game available.
The CD version, or the STEAM version.
If you have the game installed through Steam it will auto update your game.
If you have it installed from the CD into a Ubisoft folder (as opposed to your SteamApps folder) then you WILL need to download the patches.
You may notice how we don't host the Multiplayer patches. This is because that in order to play multiplayer you MUST have it installed through Steam so it will automatically download the patches.
So, if the single player is in your Steam games list, no. You don't need the patches.
If it's not then you do.
Okee Dokee, thanks for the info.
