New footage shows that Ubisoft attached cameras to real eagles and flew them across the metropolis of London to help create Eagle vision in the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. It’s quite impressive, check out the video below.
The question is, why do they need Eagle Vision for London in 2015? The game is set in Victorian London which is quite different to the modern city. We have three theories:
- It’s a marketing stunt. The video has been shown on the BBC London news and the Sun has just tweeted it to their 880,000 followers, creating exposure for the game.
- They are trying to get a general feel of London around the more historical sites which existed back in Victorian times.
- They game is partially set in modern London and you get to clamber up the Shard. They’ve managed to keep secrets in previous games, could this be the big surprise?
