Returning their free-running franchise to a sprawling urban cityscape, we’re looking forward not only to the much touted co-op elements and revolutionary setting, but also the promised crucial gameplay evolutions, including a revamp of the fluid combat, the introduction of a more intuitive parkour system, and a heightened focus on stealth. Best of all, its release is right around the corner, and we’re willing to bet the next-gen improvements will overshadow the increasingly absurd modern day frame narrative and the controversial lack of a playable female Assassin.
