IGN has released a new video detailing how Assassin's Creed Syndicate's London streets are feeled with chaos, while allowing players the freedom on how to pursue individual tasks. Game director Scott Phillips talks player choice, environmental kills, vehicles and more.
Assassin's Creed Syndicate opens up the world of Industrial London
Assassin's Creed Syndicate gives players the chance to explore iconic landmarks like the Buckingham Palace and the infamous Whitechapel district, fighting your way to the top in the massive open world of Victorian London. Parkour over moving vehicles to track down enemies or to make your escape easier. For the first time ever hijack carriages or enter street races and even climb aboard steamboats on the River Thames.
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.
