New Assassin’s Creed Syndicate details confirm huge open-world to explore

Speaking during a Q&A with fans on Twitter, Ubisoft has revealed new details on the its upcoming London-based stealth-’em-up, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The French publisher confirmed that gamers can tackle a variety of side missions in the game, but thanks to the addition of two playable characters, they’ll change depending on who you play as. This is due to the fact Evie and Jacob both have their own unqiue skill set, which will affect the way you can tackle missions. 

Interestingly, players can change characters at many points in the game, even during the loading stages. 

Elsewhere, Ubisoft turned its attention to the size of the game’s London setting, promising it will not only be big, but will contain numerous boroughs to explore during your adventure.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is due out on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One in October. Check out a gameplay video here and read our Assassin’s Creed Syndicate impressions from E3. Unlike the previous game, Syndicate will feature a modern-day storyline.
