Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will split itself over two separate playable heroes. Jacob and Evie Frye are twins, and players will have access to their own unique storylines, play styles and skill trees.
Today, we have a 10 minute look at Evie, the female side of the duo. She’s insanely powerful with a strong focus on stealth, and I can already tell that’s going to make her a fan favorite. I know I’m excited to try out her gameplay style a lot more than I am Jacob’s.
The gameplay covers what’s called a Black Box Mission. Players are meant to assassinate Lucy Thorn. How they do that is completely up to them. That freedom to choose how you approach each mission is a core mechanic in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. If it works as well as Ubisoft touts it will in this video, it’s rather exciting.
I’m completely mixed on Assassin’s Creed these days. This used to be my favorite franchise. Now? I’m not sure. I’ll be checking out Syndicate, for sure, but I remain reticent.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will sell for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms on Oct. 23, 2015. Stay tuned for more.
