If Ubisoft can deliver, the game sounds like it could be the best in a while.
As we get closer to the release of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate we’re learning a bit more about the game every day. Ubisoft held a bit of a Twitter Q&A, something they’ve done before and divulged some more information about all kinds of pieces of the game including the map size, the ability to customize your experience and the side missions you can take on. The ability to switch between Evie and Jacob in the loading screen is a nice touch and thanks to one of the answers on Twitter, Ubisoft is making it clear that there will be quite a bit of ways to change up and customize the characters.
When you choose either Evie or Jacob, there are a number of side missions you can undertake and while all of the missions can be done by either character, the way in which you complete them will change depending on who you are playing with. Each character has their own set of skills and those skills will carry them through the mission in different ways. The side missions that you will undertake are likely to be pretty detailed given the size and scope of London in this game.
The company has made mention before about how detailed London is going to be in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate before. Now the company is making mention of just how big the map will be. During the same Q&A the company said that not only is London is going to be big, but there will be plenty of boroughs to explore and conquer. All the company needs now is to make sure it actually does avoid the buggy kind of launch it says it will when Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate launches on October 23.
