Assassin's Creed Syndicate was released on 23 October.assassinscreed.ubi.com

Ubisoft's recent release of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, its newest in the Assassin's Creed franchise, takes the fight between the Templars and Assassin's to London during the 1868, the time of the Industrial Revolutions and the famed Victorian Era.

But following its release on 24 October, the game was largely reported to have several bugs. As a result, the studio rolled out a patch soon enough to bring the necessary fixes.

The patch is huge and covers various features like stability, performance, audio, fight, mission, behaviour, vehicles, NPC, game system and many more.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate does not feature a multiplayer mode nor does it have a companion app, two features that have been part of the game franchise for its previous games. The new game has received good reviews from the critics.
