In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, creative director Marc-Alexis Côté from new lead studio Ubisoft Quebec explains that Syndicate's vast and vibrant city dwelling (which will make its PC debut a whole month after the PS4 version) wasn't possible until the arrival of current-gen tech. The same tech that brought Ubisoft Montreal's bustling Parisian metropolis to life in last year's offering, Unity.
