Older than, like, dinosaurs, Heil.

Seriously though, looks so much like Unity. Getting AC: Rogue vibes from this.

Too soon. I don't care if Van Ord declares this the greatest game ever. I feel like I just finished Unity. Unity was the best one of the series and I loved it. Still it is time for a rest.

The beautiful and rarely seen (in games) settings help.

i've always like the early 1900s theme in movies and games,but that's really the only thing this game has going for it.

Not many other games just rinse and repeat the exact same stuff almost 10 times in 8 years. Even Call of Duty has changed a bit since Modern Warfare.

Looks cool, I like both the grappling hook abilities and the use of horse carriages. However, am still somewhat meh'd by the gimping of guns they had in Unity, as well as a lack of whistle distraction/luring options.

Anyhow, wonder how those SJWs who made a fuss about a lack of female Assassin's in Unity will feel about this footage basically showing a male agent of the patriarch beating up a gang made up of females.

Another copy/paste game from Ubisoft. It's pretty sad that this franchise is as popular as it is. Although I'd imagine some of that popularity has wavered after AC Unity.

Yeah I guess the only 2 AC games that were slightly different were Black Flag (easily my favourite in the series) & Rogue...

What does pre-alpha even mean anymore? That used to be the planning stages of a game, rather than a kinda unfinished, but basically complete version.

So you want EVERYONE to hate on a franchise they enjoy just because YOU think they are nothing but a new coat of paint? hmm

Which game you rather people buy instead then?

@getyeryayasout: oh wow... You get way further in the narrative than I do...

Sadly, I feel the same way about creed... I'm not sure all the marketing dollars in the world can convince me this game will be anything I haven't played 9 times already. Creed is on ice.

Like COD, this is not a series I've ever got into all that much, tried a few times but eh, just not compelling to me.

@getyeryayasout: Breaking news! I just read the early marketing teaser for next year's game... ASSASSINS CREED : APOLLO CREED

"We always have to be in the middle of the action 'cause we're the warriors. And without some challenge, without some damn war to fight, then the warrior might as well be dead, Stallion! Now I'm asking you - as a friend - stand by my side this one last time."

the only creed game im interested in.

The assassin's creed machine they have is insanely good. It creates these things like mcdonald's creates hamburgers.

I understand yet strongly disagree with the "new coat of paint" argument, because it isn't consistent. Unity was definitely not a new coat of paint, it was an entirely different AC game. Anyone who played it, without the insane technical scrunity knows this. What I don't like about Syndicate so far is that it looks too much like Unity. And jeez... London is the last place I want to play an AC game in.

Black flag was a bigger departure than anything COD's done

Well the core gameplay I agree with you.

That said they can both die now.

Touched a nerve, did I?

I don't hate Assassin's Creed at all. It was one of my favourite new IP's last generation. But I gave up on it after Revelations (III was a joke)when nothing really changed and the novelty of sailing a ship grew old.

AC either needs to change it's fundamental formula or die off. It's just ruining the franchise.
