Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Gets Custom Skinned PS4 via Rewards Program
Ubisoft opened a Rewards program that lets players complete activities and win prizes.
The site is not fully operative yet, but one of the prizes is a custom skinned PS4. Hidden in the site, there's more artwork from the game, including a pit fight, Jacob's gauntlet and blade and an AC Syndicate themed slot machine.

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.
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
