I do know this isn’t essentially the most urgent problem going through the online game neighborhood, however I simply suppose it’s humorous: somebody at Ubisoft has lastly bought round to fixing a bug that has impacted one explicit model of Murderer’s Creed on one particular platform that has been bugging individuals (or possibly only one particular person?) for years.
We truly lined this again in November 2020, when as a part of kicking the brand new console’s tyres it was found that the PlayStation 4 model of Murderer’s Creed Syndicate had some bizarre shadow points in the event you had been making an attempt to play it on the PlayStation 5. It was identified, a lot in order that anybody making an attempt to start out the sport bought a immediate that mentioned:
You would possibly expertise surprising recreation habits whereas taking part in this PS4 recreation in your PS5 console.
Nonetheless, like I mentioned, not an enormous problem. However nonetheless a problem, one that might have been logged someplace at Ubisoft, far sufficient down the checklist of priorities that it didn’t get fastened on the time, however on the checklist nonetheless, ready to be tackled by anyone, anyone, every time that they had the time.
That point is that this week. The collection’ Twitter account posted this earlier in the present day, saying that an replace be launched tomorrow particularly focusing on this very bug:
We’re glad to announce that Murderer’s Creed Syndicate will obtain an replace tomorrow, February 23, on PlayStation 4. This replace will present a repair for flickering points when taking part in on PlayStation 5.
Thanks for reminding me to dig this out and replay it. Not as a result of I need to take pleasure in it flicker-free—I by no means had it on PS4, I’ve it on PC!—however as a result of this can be a deeply underappreciated entry within the collection, and one I’d like to revisit within the wake of the newer video games being only a bit an excessive amount of.
