Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed Syndicate For PC

Good news for PC gamers who are fans of the Assassin’s Creed series as Ubisoft publishes details of the release on its blog.

Assassin’s Creed: PC version gets special attention this time around

“We have introduced several new improvements to our production pipeline and validation process, which allowed us to focus on polishing, stabilizing and optimizing the PC version very early on in the project,” said Sam Kovalev, Studio Production Manager at Ubisoft Kiev on Ubisoft’s blog. “This has been one of the top priorities for the production team this year.”

“The additional four weeks are for us to really bear down and finalize all of the polish and optimization, to make sure the game and all of its systems are stable when it launches, so it runs smoothly for all players starting on day one,” he explained further.

Ubisoft is yet to announce system requirements for PC gamers, but the company has confirmed that there will be no limit in terms of frame-rate or resolution. It is recommended that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is played on a machine capable of supporting 1080p resolution and 30 frames per second.

Delay aimed at improving gameplay experience

The company has previous form for delaying games. Reasons include adding DRM and further testing on different pieces of hardware. Ubisoft previously told PC gamers that they would have to wait for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, but it’s nice to now have an exact date in mind.

A debate over the quality of PC games compared to their console counterparts has come to the fore of late, with many PC gamers deriding the fact that games ship with obvious flaws which can make them almost unplayable.
