Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Has much Changed?

 

In October 2013 Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag was released and from that point there has been one thing that many fans of the series has been calling out for, a different story from the Ubisoft's typical Assassin's vs Templar Routine, with the odd historical face added in and that the gameplay receives a severe overhaul, especially in combat. 

Assassin's Creed 4 in the eyes of many was saved by it's theme of Piracy, where sailing and looting became much more pleasurable than Assassin's Creed's typical land based gameplay. Last years Assassin's Creed Unity was in almost every way a step backwards, where gameplay reverted to take away many of the freedoms Assassin's Creed 4 allowed and providing gamers with a sub par game in terms of performance and playability, with many still being plagued by bugs and glitches to this day.

Today marks the reveal of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, a move to Victorian London, where instead of hearing a disturbingly English sounding cast of French character, like Unity, you will find a very authentic feeling London, complete with all the bells and whistles like ridable carriages and  taking upon itself a gangland theme.

 

 

Thankfully the announcement came with more than just the trailer above, as like many of you I like to see gameplay from the start, and form what has been shown so far (embeded below), Assassin's Creed Syndicate does seem to have a fair few differences from the series norms, like Environmental kills, ridable carriages, which allow for some thrilling chases through the grimey Streets of 19th century London, a grappling hook for faster climbing and a supposedly rebuild fighting system, though we will need to see more before anybody could define it as "improved".

 

Assassin's Creed in London!  Assassin's Creed in London!  

 

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, not Ubisoft Montreal, which is a first for the series for a mainline release of the game, though Ubisoft Quebec have worked on DLC packages for previous titles like The tyranny of Washington and Freedom Cry.  

Lets hope that Ubisoft Quebec can do a better job with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate than Ubisoft Montreal could do with Unity, especially given that players of the game on every platform are still reporting issues.

 

 

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate has already had over 2 years of Development behind it and will be using Ubisoft's Anvil Engine, which was previously used in Assassin's Creed Unity, meaning that you will probably need a powerful pC in order to play it. 

The game is set to release on October 23rd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and as always we advise you to not consider pre-ordering this title, especially given Ubisoft's recent history.

A lot seems to have changed with Assassin's Creed Syndicate and it is about time. Gangs, ridable carriages, is this GTA...

I have played every single major release of this series, beat them all. Unity i didn't even touch.. makes me sad, hopefully this becomes better and i can continue to keep up with the series. Here's to hoping it's a good one!

Also It makes me ponder why they jumped so far ahead in history.. they jumped nearly 70 years. They should have a two story series. Like one that's farther ahead in history, one that's behind that can start from the origins(after AC1) and then link up the two as they go on. That would be amazing tbh.Quote

I started playing Unity lately and it's a damn good game thanks to the patches they've come out with to improve performance.Quote

Unity for me was and still is enjoyable. However I did prefer the dead kings ending.
What annoys me is the story seems stagnant outside the animus, I'm a bit lost as to what's going on in truth.

It is a bit of a time jump though guess they did not think anything in history could be manipulated into assassinations behind the scene.Quote
