As part of the announcement of the new Victorian-era Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Ubisoft have released a 9 minute walkthrough of some of the gameplay one can expect. Which naturally, includes a lot of stabbing.
In addition to the new top-hat heavy setting, the video also showcases some new additions to the Assassin's Creed formula.
Grappling Hooks - Something which arguably should have been added a while ago. But, it seems to work as well as you could hope for in Assassin's Creed Syndicate, allowing for super quick building ascension.
Fewer Roof Cops - Although the roofs in previous games were littered with the Fuzz, there's a distinct lack of roof patrol duty for the cops of Victorian London.
Vehicles - In the form of horse and buggies, which Syndicate will have plenty of. Which you can both hide in and take for a spin.
Distinct Stealth Mode - In Syndicate, wearing a top hat means you're just walking around being natural. Take the top hat off and put on your hoodie however, and that means you're in stealth-sneak-stab mode.
Bill 'The Butcher' Mode - Gang fights so soot and mustache heavy that you'd think you were re-watching Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York
Of course, these are but a few observations. And with the less-than-polished release of last year's Unity things are definitely looking pretty good so far. Check out the video below.
