Assassin's Creed Syndicate PS5 PlayStation 5

The vast, vast majority of PS4 games run wonderfully well on PS5, but there are a handful of exceptions. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is one such game: it’s playable, but it has some pretty unfortunate graphical glitches which ruin the experience entirely. Many had assumed that publisher Ubisoft had moved on from the title, but with so many classic Assassin’s Creed games coming to PS Plus Extra, there may yet be value in a fix.

And, surprisingly, it’s something the French firm is working on:

A support message spotted by ResetEra confirms that the company is aware of the issues and actively exploring a fix. “The team is aware of some visual issues in Assassin's Creed Syndicate on PS5 and working on a fix as soon as possible,” a spokesperson said. “We don't have any updates just yet, but please keep an eye out for news on that.”

While we didn’t love Assassin’s Creed Syndicate at the time, our appreciation has grown over the years because it’s one of the last traditional Assassin’s Creed entries before the series moved in a more RPG-inspired direction. Would you be willing to revisit this Victorian London escapade if it got fixed up on PS5? Survive the workhouse in the comments section below.
