Assassin’s Creed Syndicate PC patch and Jack the Ripper DLC arrive with bodies of bugs in tow


The latest, alright guvna hapenny fer yer biznizz Assassin’s Creed has received a couple of updates on PC today. Syndicate has received a patch to address some outstanding issues, as well as the Jack the Ripper DLC being enabled and put on sale. Set twenty years after the main game, it tracks heroine Evie’s attempts to stop the legendary uncaught killer before he can destroy the Brotherhood. Which is apparently what he was doing. Who knew?

Wondering how Syndicate runes on PC? Here’s our port review.

If you’re not up to speed on the DLC, here’s the official trailer:

I’d be into this if I owned Syndicate, but I don’t think it’s enough to actually pick up the game itself at fifty big ones. Still, not exactly a lot of games where you get to play as a woman around her fifties and still punch a lot of people to death with Stabby Wrists (that’s the technical term), so props to Ubisoft for not making it a tale of dude hunts dude. It’s up on Steamfor £11.99 / $14.99 / €14.99.

A patch was issued in part to enable the DLC, but also to hit a few niggling issues and enable some more PC functionality. You can read the notes in full on the forums, but here’s the highlights:

  • Fixed crash in multi-monitor mode in London
  • Fixed FXAA with enabled MSAA
  • Fixed changing of display in fullscreen mode issues
  • Fixed flickering panel in World Map
  • Added additional parameter to AC.ini for disabling cloth motion 30FPS limits

That additional parameter works by adding “FlexibleMotionSimulationFPS=1” without the quotes to the AC.ini file located in “MyDocuments/Assassins Creed Syndicate” under the [OPTIONS] section. It’s disabled by default, but should mean nicer looking movements on good PCs if you want it.
