Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Debut Trailer 

In around four months, we will see Assassin’s Creed Syndicate hitting the shelves of your favorite game store. The game developers roll out information regularly, making people excited about the features that will accompany the new era Syndicate will be situated in.

With the Syndicate hype still going, here are 5 major things that you’ll enjoy about the new title’s gameplay:

1. Smoother Stealth

Environment-Based Kill

Jacob's ancestors weren't able to do this.

Syndicate’s predecessors require constant hiding in the shadows when following an enemy’s tracks. While this was fun because that’s what assassins usually do, it got old sometimes due to the repetitive use of the said mechanic.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s gameplay mechanics changed so players can enjoy the quick switch from navigation to stealth mode on-the-fly, making the assassin’s movement more natural; this comes in tandem with the updated setting of the game – 1868 London is packed with people in every location so constantly hiding behind walls would make you look suspicious to the public eye.

Stealth Kill

Reducing the number of threaths increases the chances of a successful rescue.

Jacob Frye, one of the game’s main assassins, is charismatic and a little sociable rather than cutthroat scary; hiding his identity is not needed in the upcoming installment. From here on out, sneaking around might be more effective in most cases. This provides a more realistic gameplay for Jacob is not limited to just hiding from targets before he strikes.

In addition to the easier transition from free-roam to stealth, you can now play with your enemies using a whistle, a new tool in your assassination career. You can lure them to your location immediately, effectively reducing your time waiting, hidden behind walls. This will give you a chance to sneak around and kill them or escape quickly while they’re checking your previous location.
