Assassin's Creed Syndicate Gets Least Festive DLC Ever

Ho ho ho it’s Christmas, let’s celebrate by making light of one of history’s most brutal serial killers. Yes, the surprisingly ace Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate [official site] on PC now has the long-promised Jack The Ripper DLC, available both to season pass holders and as its own $15 purchase. Putting our confusion about how the Whitechapel killer could possibly feature in the Syndicate timeline to rest, it transpires that the new chunk of story is set 20 years after the parent game.

Evie Fry is the lead protagonist of the DLC, and presumably brings fantastical but secretive justice to the notorious Victorian murderer. Earlier summaries of the DLC suggest that the Ripper’s return will be tied into to the Assassins somehow, because stopping an evil man from maiming and killing women isn’t motivation enough. My guess he’ll turn out to be a high-ranking Assassin and they’ll be all angsty about it.

Here’s an unnecessarily lascivious trailer for the DLC from a little while ago. Happy Christmas.

Also just added to Syndicate on PC is a new patch with apparently improves performance and stability. It also does these specific things:

• Added additional parameter to AC.ini for disabling cloth motion 30FPS limits
• 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
• Fixed various render issues
• Fixed several online issues
• Minor UI improvements

Full patch notes here, and expect a 180MB download if you’re using Steam or 440MB if you’re on Uplay.
