Preview of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Alpha demo

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ alpha demo is not just another Assassin’s Creed game because this installment is a little more special. The first game in the world to be released in Arabic, dubbed and along with subtitles; it will also be launched on the same day as the official English launch.

The games aesthetic derives from 1868 London, with the games setting coming from the era of the industrial revolution; and that means fancy top hats and exaggerated British accents. From that, you can expect to find interesting, and amazing new gadgets that will easily help you traverse from building to building.

The games close quarters combat is fluid, and adrenaline inducing; almost akin to the Arkham Knight combat system, although a little bit stiff and slightly more realistic (less jumping from enemy to enemy, that’s for sure). As for the stealth kills, it seems to be more of the same from the previous Assassins Creeds game, and am not sure whether or not the new gadgets mean new stealth kills, or forces one to play the game in a different way since it’s the alpha demo (though I do PRAY that that is the case).

Using the assassins ability to Look through walls for wanted people in your missions reminds me of the same concept of looking through walls in Ubisoft’s “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist”, which is a small disappointment since they both come from the same Company and with the same exact concept of gameplay…and yes, it’s also the same as the X-Ray vision in the Arkham Games series (hope they do tweak it a little more following the final release version, fingers crossed!).

Recruiting gang members has been applied to the game, helping you in fighting for justice (God that sounds so cliché); almost similar to the recruitment system from the Assassins Creed 2 brotherhood, where you recruit members by saving them from the Templars. The most special thing that I loved was hijacking carriages! Not cars, bikes, or boats! But fighting over carriages on carriages! Yes, nothing like GTA gameplay, it’s more like GTA with a mix of Arkham Knight, and trust me – it gets the feels there!

If you are not aware, the game demo was released on the PlayStation 4 console therefore this review doesn’t reflect on the gameplay on PC and Xbox One. Most likely the Xbox one and PlayStation version would be similar graphics wise. However, as an Xbox user, the game controls were actually comfortable to my hands (not the controller, but the game controls), still cannot compare both of them till we do try them. The game ran smooth without any major bugs, there are few minor bugs as this is 15 minutes Alpha demo version, but game developers are looking forward for more reports to repair following official release of the game.

We are excited, Are you?
