Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – Vehicle Gameplay Will Be A Game Changer
In an interview with OXM (Official Xbox Magazine), Assassin’s Creed Syndicate creative director, Marc-Alexis Cote, reveals some information about the vehicle gameplay in Syndicate. As has been reported earlier players will be able to use a number of vehicles found in the Victorian London setting.
“Any carriage that the player can see, they can interact with. They can hop on top of boats and trains to manipulate them to their advantage,”
“Vehicles are so intrinsic to the gameplay experience that they will profoundly change the way people play the game.”
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will allow players to drive through the streets in carriages
The player can take control of a carriage and drive through the streets, but can also jump across moving carriages to traverse through busy streets.
“They are dynamic platforms that the player can jump on.”
Abducted or kidnapped NPC’s can be thrown into a carriage and carried away. Carriages can also serve as “moving hiding spots.” This is certainly a big change for the Assassin’s Creed series, and it could prove to be what the franchise needs. Lets hope thatit works out for the best.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate features two protagonists, twin siblings Jacob and Evie Frye
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate players will take control of both Jacob and Evie Frye, twin brother and sister. Syndicate will feature a new combat system, new weapons, a grappling hook and a territory system similar to Far Cry’s outposts.
Jacob will still likely qualify as the game’s main character, with the story missions favoring him 75% to 25%, although the characters might be interchangeable during missions according to a source. Syndicate will not have any multiplayer missions.
All these aspects are a good indication that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is heading in the right direction. The previously mentioned asynchronous gameplay, should relate to changing between characters in order to complete objectives, potentially adding some unique elements in mission structure.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will not feature a multiplayer mode
The focus on single player, hopefully will provide a more balanced and complete title. To be fair a title like Assassin’s Creed does not need multiplayer, and although some cooperative missions could be fun at times, the issues caused by implementing them, or the time in developing an entirely different play style is better spent elsewhere.
Ubisoft confirmed hat it will be showcasing new content from three of its titles at E3 2015 later this month.
