One of the big features the folks at Ubisoft are pushing for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the ability to create and cultivate gangs throughout the boroughs of London. In previous games, this was used to a small extent, in which men you freed or protected or paid could be called upon to assist against a larger group of enemies. Syndicate is taking that notion one step forward and is making gang fights a major part of its upcoming game.
In the video above, Game Director Scott Phillips provides more insight into the gang aspect, and how a player can increase their gang’s size and abilities for when the inevitable gang war breaks out. Phillips explains the numerous ways a player can increase and equip their gang, such as fighting their way through bare-knuckle boxing matches, kidnapping opposing gang leaders, stealing, and blowing up a few supply lines. All in a days work to take back London from the extortionists.
In addition to the above video, Sony released a new trailer featuring the male half of the Assassin twins and features some sweet weapons and killer moves.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is available this tomorrow for PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC release coming on November 19th.
