Ubisoft Quebec creative director Marc-Alexis Cote spoke to GameSpot about Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, and its focus on the single player experience, lacking any multiplayer modes. Cote explains that this was because the studio wanted to focus on the core single player story of Jacob and Evie, with everything advancing the narrative.
“The reason we are doing this is to really focus on the roots of the franchise/ That’s why all nine studios are focused on delivering this single-player experience.”
Some of the features of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate include:
- A curved blade called Kukri for close-quarters combat
- A revolver for distance kills and finishers
- Brass knuckles for when a punch in the face isn’t enough
- Zip-line to buildings (Batman style)
- Assassin’s Gauntlet rope launcher
- Bare knuckle boxing
- Players can ride carriages
- Big Ben
- New and Improved fighting system provides more fluid and accessible combat
- Victorian London
- Two main protagonists, twins Jacob and Evie Frye

You play Jacob Frye, a gangster assassin fighting for justice on behalf of London’s enslaved working class. Watch as Jacob rallies his gang to break the corrupt stranglehold on London and bring the working class a brighter future.
