And given Ubisoft’s attention to detail, we surely can expect accurately-modelled versions of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square, the Big Ben Tower and other landmarks. And climbing to the top of the Big Ben tower to perform the series’ iconic leap of faith will be easier this time around as the game features the rope launcher, which twin assassins Jacob and Evie can use to get to the top of buildings more rapidly.
GTA in the 19th century
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 19th century Victorian London, making it the most modern Assassin’s Creed game yet. So it is likely that the game’s virtual London will be the largest and most detailed city seen in a Creed game to date. But thankfully the twin assassins Jacob and Evie will be able to ride carriages to quickly reach their next mission objective (or do some sightseeing…). And Ubisoft has faithfully recreated the busy streets of Victorian London, with pedestrians and police reacting realistically to the player’s carriage antics.
And it will be possible to hijack those horse-drawn carriage like you would in a GTA game, while being pursued by the police and evading panicked civilians (or not…), and even some sequences will have players fighting on top of carriages, making for some exciting action bits…
