Ubisoft’s Marc-Alexis Côté: “London is the Star of the Show” in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate


IGN has released a behind the scenes interview with the creative team behind the upcoming Assassin's Creed Syndicate, as part of their IGN First coverage of the latest iteration in the long running series. 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.
