Breaking all the norms of AAA games’ marketing strategies that keep making the fans beg for more details insights into the upcoming title while the developers keep releasing cinematic teasers and trailers for months on months, Ubisoft has went on and released the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate gameplay video to everyone’s surprise.
It rarely happens that we get to watch the actual gameplay only a day after a major videgame gets its official reveal, but with this one we are.
On top of that, the video released by Ubisoft is not a mere one or two minute clip, rather it is a healthy nine minute long footage showing off how it would feel to take control of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
It is filled with the conventional Victorian Era feels; the soot, the boys almost living in the streets and yes, hats!
There are going to be new modes of transportation like buggies and trains and more importantly there are going to be playable female characters. The accent for a few of the characters did sound a bit off to me considering it is the classic Britain we are talking about, but maybe it is just me.
Any how, the footage is pre-alpha – as expected, so you can be sure to see a lot of changes in the way Assassin’s Creed Syndicate feels upon release. Here’s to hoping that the change doesn’t take it downhill.
