Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – 18 Minutes of PS4 Gameplay Captured from Sony’s Hong Kong Presentation

Sony released a video of Assassin's Creed Syndicate on PS4, as it was demonstrated live on stage at the Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong 2015.

The footage, which can be viewed below, is of a somewhat low quality off-screen capture but it does feature some interesting gameplay.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate puts players in control of Jacob Frye, tasking them with clearing out an enemy gang stronghold before chasing down a Templar named Bloody Nora. It seems straightforward, but as with all the missions in the game, there are many ways to accomplish your goals, though not all of them are immediately apparent. Wandering off the rails reveals that there's a lot of room for exploration and experimentation, as well as a lot of cool stuff you might not see if you just head straight to your objective. The highlights nine things, found by doing a little sightseeing, and pursuing some unconventional ways.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate enables players to take-over the London underworld

With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the plutocrats and defeat rival gangs, to bring freedom to the oppressed masses. Enemy strongholds can be infiltrated by using an arsenal of weapons to dominate London’s underworld. From robbing trains to rescuing child laborers, players will stop at nothing to bring justice to London’s lawless streets.

As the brash, rebellious Jacob Frye, throw up your dukes and take on enemies with lightning-fast multi-kills and countermoves. Use improved stealth tactics to elude your enemies, then unleash your arsenal of all-new weapons including the kukri knife, brass knuckles and cane sword. Utilize new technology like the rope launcher to scale buildings in seconds and take your enemies by surprise.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate comes out on Xbox One and PS4 on October 23 2015, with a PC release to follow. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available.
