Two reveal videos for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

Assassins Creed Syndicate Gang Leader1

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate has officially been revealed and it’s looking gorgeous, as expected. However, there’s a whole lot more than a pretty face – the game has a bunch of new features that will expand gameplay options and are getting me excited, yet again.

First up, here is some gameplay. I will do a full analysis soon, but so far I’m happy to see the zip line options as well as environmental takedowns finally making an appearance.

Then there’s this debut trailer that makes it seem like the assassins are actually just a bunch of communists.

At least now we know Darwin and Dickins will be involved thanks to the evil pre-order bonuses. I’m still not convinced that anyone should be pre-ordering Assassin’s Creed games, but I do like some of what I see. Sure, a lot of it still relies on the same mechanics that have worked so well in previous Assassin’s Creed games – the core principles are obviously what gamers know and love about the franchise. However, it’s great to see the expansion into the zip line for faster movement, as well as the use of environmental take downs. At last! While we didn’t see any footage of it, the end of the gameplay trailer implies that earlier reports about the ability to play as Evie or Jacob could be true; it would be great to also play as a female character in Assassin’s Creed, especially if they gave her some unique abilities and those oh so expensive and difficult animations.

I still need to see a lot more before I’ll let myself get hyped for the game, but it really is looking great and as long as they actually finish the game before it’s released on 23 October, things could go well for Ubisoft. Here’s hoping that this becomes the first truly new generation Assassin’s Creed game and we can all wipe Unity from our memories.

    That was incredibly boring…………..I just can’t get excited for AC. That looked like more of the same with a Tenchu Grappling hook. Combat look AWFUL…nah man…………..AC needs some drastic changes.

      Yip but pre order and get a free mission, come on that’s tempting

        Lol you forgot about the free race track for horse and carrlt race. You have much to learn in how to pre-order incentivise AAA 😛 I joke, but it’s reality.

    from what i played of unity, it was pretty fun, once you get past all the patches etc.
    this one looks pretty fun.
    gameplay looks similar to previous game, so if you liked those, sure, i dont see it converting many people though.

    dont think it looks quite as fun as black flag or rogue was, when black flag came out, i thought they were starting to get a bit more colourfull, but theyv all gone back to these dreary colour palletes… meh.
    also needs more ships, something that makes the character your own.

    if the preorder comes in at a standard R450 price for PC, i’ll probably end up preordering it. dont see the point in waiting, preorder prices usually increase after the first week/month, so if im gna buy it, il do it early at the lower price.
    not likely to happen, but one can hope.

    hoping they learnt enough from the developement of unity and its launch to prevent anything game breaking, graphics dont seem to be anything above that, so they really have no excuse…
    also hoping these preorder incentives are part of the default preorder and not a deluxe edition bonus. less expectant on that though.

    I am actually pretty keen on this for a change, have never been a massive fan of the series even since the first game. It looks like they are dropping the jumping back and forth between modern times and history with this one which about time, because that’s the reason I never liked these games.

    London itself looks absolutely fantastic though.

    Loved Black Flag, Unity was a step backwards for me. Sure its was purdy and there was a ton to do but, meh… The most broken part of any AC game in my opinion has to be the combat mechanics. They feel so strained and don’t flow nicely. After games like the Arkham series and SOM one would think that the folks at Ubisoft would make another plan in that department atleast.

    The grappling hook is invaluable. Was very useful in Dying Light. I like the idea of carriages but traveling fast seems very awkward. The gang fights looks fun but the combat looks weird. Jacob drops more knees than Jean Dysel in a rugby match. This also seems less MP focused than Unity which is for the better
