Ubisoft was another developer which put on a good show at E3 2015, with its main attractions being new Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy titles for the latest generation of consoles.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
The new Assassin’s Creed title, subtitled Syndicate, is set in 1868 London at the height of the Industrial Revolution. The trailer shows new gameplay elements including better hand-to-hand combat, more ways of transport and two protagonists.
The game will see player face off against the evil Templars and their gang. Player will gather people or rooks in this new gameplay method called ‘syndicate’ for gang fights. This is a first for the series. The game area is 30 percent larger than last time around.
Forms of transportations including carriages and trains have been introduced. Carriages can now be ridden in and controlled. You can ram other carriages of the track, or engage in fist-fights on their roofs. The carriage moves independently during such sequences.
There are new tools too. There is a blade-adorning cane to begin with, along with revolvers, knives and brass knuckles. There is a new rope launcher à la Batman for fast travelling and getting on rooftops.
For the first time in the series, you can control multiple characters, quite similar in fashion to GTA V. While Jacob is the main protagonist, his sister Evie, described as a “master of stealth” is also controllable. The player will be aided in his quest by Charles Darwin and Charles Dickens.
Controllers who pre-order the game will get an extra mission featuring both of these revolutionary people. The game will hit the PS4 and Xbox One on October 23rd, with a PC release date lying somewhere around that period too.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
The new Tom Clancy Ghost Recon game has been announced and it’s called Wildlands. The game will feature an open-world and is set in Bolivia. Here is the official statement:
Bolivia has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to fear, injustice, and violence. The Ghosts, a legendary US Elite Special Operations team, is sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc and break alliances between the cartel and the corrupted government.
The game will feature vehicular combat and multiplayer elements. Talking of vehicles, everything from boats to helicopters and parachutes is covered. You’ll be able to tag your enemy and make a strategy to hunt them down. That’s because the game is more reliant on tactical gameplay than before. We are hoping to know more about it in the coming week.
