Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be receiving an update, more than seven years after its original release. Despite its age, Ubisoft wants to ensure the game is still playable and enjoyable on current platforms. The update, titled Title Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Update 1.53, is set to release on February 23 and will address a significant technical issue with the PlayStation 5 version of the game. Players have reported a “flickering issue” that makes the game unplayable on the latest console, and this update is intended to fix that problem.
Ubisoft Wants Assassin’s Creed Syndicate to Remain Playable and Accessible to Players
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was launched in 2015 and followed Unity, seeking to create a new status quo for the franchise. Although it was not one of the most successful releases in the series, Ubisoft wants the game to remain widely available and accessible to players. This update should allow owners of the PS5 to revisit a somewhat less fondly remembered part of Assassin’s Creed’s history, and to play a key part of the series’ story.
The previous update for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was delivered in 2017 and addressed stability issues. Prior changes to that focused on PlayStation 4 Pro improvements and stability. This update will likely be the last for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which is long past its time of active support. However, for those who still play the game, it is great that Ubisoft is able to continue providing support even years after the game’s original release.
Significance of Update Shows the Importance of Addressing Technical Issues
The significance of this update is clear from the fact that it’s been more than seven years since the game’s release, and yet Ubisoft is still providing support. The fact that it’s only addressing the flickering issue suggests that it is a significant problem that has been reported by a significant number of players. Although it is unclear why Ubisoft has not fixed the issue earlier, it is great that they are now taking steps to address the problem.
Fans of Series Can Look Forward to Upcoming Release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage
In addition to this update, fans of the Assassin’s Creed series can also look forward to the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a more old-school style title that will be launching later this year. While recent entries in the franchise have been hugely successful, Mirage will take place in a more confined setting and will be a much shorter experience overall compared to previous installments. For fans of the series, this will be a chance to return to a more classic style of gameplay that was present in earlier Assassin’s Creed games.
Ubisoft’s Commitment to Supporting Games Shown Through Update for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Upcoming Mirage Release
Ubisoft’s decision to issue an update for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate more than seven years after its launch shows their commitment to supporting their games and ensuring that players can enjoy them for years to come. The Title Update 1.53 will address the significant technical issue with the PlayStation 5 version of the game, allowing players to experience the game without any problems. For fans of the series, the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage will provide an opportunity to return to a more classic style of gameplay.
