The latest update for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (version 1.03) appears to be causing some issues with the game's multiplayer on PlayStation 4. Ubisoft hasnt gotten into specifics, but they did say they are "investigating" the issues associated with the patch, which released on PS4 today.

Over on the forums, a user reported that the patch has reset all of his multiplayer progress.

Was prestige 1 level 42 or so... Now I'm level 1 again.

Nobody is online (literally there are no sessions)

Abstergo Plus is gone.

All my credits items... Everything (except my character pack) was reset.

As for the actual patch, it's the same as the one that hit PC back in December, but here are the notes as a reminder.
