Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate was officially revealed by Ubisoft yesterday.The new game is set in London and rumor has it that there will be two playable characters – Jacob and Evie.
During the presentation we were given a glimpse of some of the new tools you have at your disposal: A zip line to easier traverse your surroundings as well as environmental take-downs.
Also worth noting is that the combat seems to be more fluent although we spotted Jacob dropping more knees than Jean Dysel during a rugby match. We were also treated to a clip of Darwin and Dickens who will feature in an exclusive pre-order mission. I am still not convinced that anybody should pre-order Assassins Creed games after the buggy mess that was Assassins Creed: Unity.
Let’s hope that Ubisoft learned from their mistakes and that Assassins Creed : Syndicate will be everything we hoped for in a next-gen Assassins game. Assassins Creed: Syndicate is scheduled for release on 23 October 2015 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
