OnlySP: Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate has been officially announced and will be set in Victorian London as Kotaku originally reported a while ago.
30% more useless bloated padding.
And probably only 10% less broken than Unity.
Long live single player more like. May just support this game purely on that fake. No more cheap gimmickery shoe horned in drop in drop out co-op. Get gaming back into making solid experiences before trying any fancy stuff.
There was nothing gimmicky about Unity's co op. It was a pretty fantastic experience.
Glad it's single player only again. I actually really enjoyed Unity's story for what it was. Hoping for even better with Syndicate.
Agreed. I don't see why every game insists on shoe-horning a multiplayer mode into it just to check off a box. AC4 was a great game for me and would have been perfect if it didn't have the MP stuff required if I wanted to get the platinum trophy. I want more single player only games.
Finally, they've learnt their lesson. These games are single player experiences, doing online will just waste resources. I mean whats the point in online when you'll have a new AC out the next year.
Well Black Flag had multiplayer but it was still a great game. The way I see it if there is multiplayer in an AC game it should be a separate part of the game and not integrated into the single player. Also the game should only have multiplayer if they are able to deliver a great quality lengthy single player experience
Syndicte is Black Flag to Unity what Black Flag was to AC3. Minus some awesome innovative mechanic.
I concur, let's get back to the good old AC2 days. If AC Unity was our AC1 of this generation, perhaps Syndicate could be the AC2 of this generation. Here's hoping.
Not really , AC had a great mp in a few of its titles . But it's just better to drop it , when they clearly are having a rough time making a good game with either sp or mp .
"Finally, they've learnt their lesson." lol, you certainly haven't.
Great, more annoying loot chests to open and much longer stalking mission.
Like a dog returns to it's own vomit... stop playing these games if you hate it so much.
Yes, because progress is made not by criticizing things we don't like, but by ignoring them. Someone give this man a medal -_-
Worse is that it's basically Unity with the addition of: -A whistle option -Fluid-er combat -Carriages -A better excuse for British accent -Batman-like grappling hook -GTA V-like 2 protagonists -A downgraded london (compare to screenshots of January before throwing me a dislike)
Those "screenshots" were from a pre-rendered video from most likely 2013.
The British is also pretty shit, for some guy that was from the dirty ghetto he sounds pretty damn posh.
I feel like this means they'll just be announcing a multiplayer only AC game to be released alongside this game soon.
Seems a bit right for a F2P microtransaction ripe game.
No multiplayer? That sounds like such a huge step back to AC1 era
Well the multiplayer hardly ever improved so it was stuck in the past aswell
How so? MP didn't work for the series and this game is 30% larger. Could it not merely be a greater focus to single player? To add MP is to take away from the SP, to take out the MP is a umm "step back" I'm sorry but the series focus is SP, this is merely a step forward into keeping it that way. Why spend money on a feature that isn't being used? Why not just spend that money on MORE SP missions and focus? Some gamers are legit a bit too entitled theses days, hell the article is stating "only 30% larger" as if Unity is a small game, never mind its Ubisoft's largest game they've released to date.
More of the boring things to do, hooray!?
Ubi stop making AC games and bring back Prince of Persia
Keep making AC games and bring back POP AC games aren't perfect but its one of the better game series in the past 10 years.
I used to be a huge fan of AC but after playing AC3 I just lost interest in the series I played Black flag but I just didn't play it long enough to beat it, I just want a sequel to the 2008 PoP
I am a fan of Assassins Creed and feel like this is a setting that has long been requested so I am really excited to try it. I am fairly familiar with the layout of the city and being British, much more familiar with the history so I am quite excited to try a creed game where I have more of a reference point. If I would change one thing from Unity it would be to tone down the amount of collectibles and instances of side missions as it can get very repetitive if you are trying to complete the game fully.
This is the first AC I'm actually interested in :3
