Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Ubisoft need to answer these questions

After yesterday's reveal, some questions were finally answered about Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, but with months to go before release, there's still a lot we don't know about the world of Jacob and Evie Frye.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Ubisoft need to answer these questions

How involved will Evie Frye be?

We've heard that Jacob's twin sister will be a playable character in the game, but to what extent? Ubisoft told The Guardian that players will be able to swap between Evie and Jacob during the open world sections of the game between missions. But what sort of split the twins will have for the main campaign missions is unknown. Although, it hardly looks like a 50/50 split is likely as Jacob is dominating the box art and promotional imagery along with the statues of the special editions. It's unlikely we're looking at a pair of co-headliners this time. Still, it's nice Ubisoft managed to scrape together enough cash to mo-cap a female actor climbing a wall this year.

Why Assassin's Creed: Syndicate already looks better than Unity

With Assassin's Creed: Syndicate finally officially revealed after months of speculation and leaks, it's good to see what this year's entry in Ubisoft's series is shaping up like. Can it repair the damage done by last year's Unity though? Take a look at what we think were the most important elements to take away from today's official reveal. If you missed the live broadcast you can watch everything, including the new trailers for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate here.

Why Assassin's Creed: Syndicate already looks better than Unity

Rope launcher

Sometimes, you've just had enough of climbing in Assassin's Creed, especially when Arno decides he needs to pause for a second or two with no explanation other than he actually wants to be spotted by that guard with the never-miss rifle. Thanks to the new rope-launcher, such issues could become a thing of the past as we see Jacob do a very tidy Batman impression throughout the demo by flying up to rooftops with ease. You can even use it to set up zip lines between buildings, with the option to drop off along the way for an aerial takedown on guards. This sounds like a fantastic method of getting through the larger spaces in some of Assassin's Creed's arenas.

Assassin's Creed 3 | £19.99 | Zavvi | Wii U

Assassin's Creed 3 | £19.99 | Zavvi | Wii U

So, Assassin's Creed III is a bit of a divisive proposition. Fun in the early game, yet hampered by awful main mission design and a serious dilution of its fun content, it's difficult to find three people who'll agree on whether it's good, terrible or merely average. However, if you're looking for the Wii U version, there's no quibbling about this Zavvi deal. Note that the Wii U version is practically identical to the PS3/Xbox 360 version, but packs excellent Gamepad features and abominable frame rate/loading time issues. Thanks to robertr at HotUKDeals.

Assassin's Creed 3 | £21.85 | ShopTo | Wii U

Today’s offer from ShopTo beats out the deal from GAME last month, bringing us the best price we’ve seen for the Wii U version. Overall is beats the next best offer by £3.

Its open world design and ship combat mechanics may have been a strong highlight, but it didn’t manage to hide the fact that it was somewhat bland in others (and the protagonist not having the charisma of Ezio didn’t help matters.) The Wii U version isn’t as slick as its fellow counterparts, but effective use of the gamepad makes up for it… just about. Thanks to bigtam1 @ HUKD!
