Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Gets Awesome New “Fight Club” Gameplay

Archie Paras

The Nerdist team goes to London to try out Assassin's Creed Syndicate, and the always beautiful Jessica Chobot, gets "knuckles ready" to fight, as she enters one of Syndicate's most exciting new additions to the series, fight clubs. Jessica also adds that the controls have been tightened, providing better control over parkour and climbing, and as is quite evident, the combat has been quite improved as well, allowing for massive combos with much more fluidity than ever before. The addition of fight clubs is quite exciting, providing an extra way of earning money and fine-tuning your fighting skills.

Fight Clubs bring an exciting new pastime to Assassin's Creed Syndicate

PlayStation Access has also provided some nice direct-feed footage from their hands-on time with the game, which once again demonstrates how Assassin's Creed Syndicate brings the "fun" back to the series.

The city of London is "the star of the show" in Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Marc-Alexis Côté, Creative Director for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, explains how the city of London is the "Star of the Show", and they wanted to treat it as a real character from the very beginning. The city is teeming with life, the river Thames is filled with steamboats and the evolving technology and structurally expanding architecture provide the perfect playground, with immense scalability opportunities and unlimited traversing potential.


Ubisoft has released a new Story trailer for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, alongside some impressive 1080p screenshots which can be viewed in the gallery above. Ubisoft has also recently announced that Assassin's Creed Syndicate will be getting a Jack The Ripper DLC, taking place 20 years after the events of the main game.
