In the United States, the game goes for US$29.99 (RM123.42).

While some users on the discussion boards were happy to get the game for a steep discount, some suggested the price glitch could be related to currency exchanges.

Steam has not issued a statement on the pricing and whether it would be adjusting it.

According to the game’s description, Assassin’s Creed Unity is an action adventure game where the player takes the role of an assassin on a mission in Paris, France during the French Revolution.
