Assassin's Creed Syndicate: 7 New Things About the Upcoming Game: Page 4 of 7

Let's wake them up, shall we?

Stealth Reinvented

Dive Kill

A quick, painless death awaits.

Stealth contributes to the majority of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s gameplay mechanics; creeping behind the enemy before slitting their throats or plunging a dagger through their necks, or moving from one location to another without being noticed.

In this game’s version of London, it might not be applicable at all times. There will be lots of people on the streets and in other locations, making stealth techniques of the previous titles a little awkward to use. Hiding Jacob’s identity won’t be needed this time around.

The previous titles use the ‘hard snap’ stealth mechanic. You are forced to find and camp behind rocks, walls and bushes for extended periods, waiting for the right chance to strike. If you’re familiar with the old game Tenchu: Stealth Assassins, you’ll probably get what I mean.

Syndicate will now use ‘soft snap’ stealth typical of modern games, giving players the freedom to switch from navigation to stealth mode with a quick keystroke, thus allowing smoother and more natural movement.

Sneaking in Public

Imagine sneaking with several people near you.

The easy transition allows you to make use of the environment in any way possible to approach the enemy without waiting too much in the shadows. Sneaking and outsmarting the enemy seems to be the way to go.

You can bait your enemies by getting yourself seen for a bit, running for a while, take a sharp turn, then silently jumping over a wall to go around them as they try to follow your tracks, then stabbing them from behind while they’re busy discussing where you probably went. There are other ways to do it, and a simple yet effective item makes it easier to do so.

Stealth Kill

You have the right to remain silent - forever.

Along with the changes in stealth, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate gives the main character a whistle, its sound luring any opponents from nearby areas. This gives you the option to deal with them immediately, or quickly flee from your current place, fooling them to check out your previous location as you run away.
