Make a hood/hat toggle button without forcing stealth mode in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

This petition had 2,263 supporters

Throughout the Assassin's Creed series the beaked hoods have become something of an icon for the Assassin's, the series protagonists. It is a symbol that many have come to love and would hate to see restricted or taken away, however realistic it's restriction may be given the game's current time period.

It started in the end of Assassin's Creed III when the hood was no longer worn upon completion of the main story line. This caused enough commotion that a patch was created to restore the hood's use. Then the situation continued on to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, when the hood was only worn when entering restricted areas or fast traveling to a location. Assassin's Creed: Unity managed to keep the hood on at all times.

And now in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, the main character Jacob Frye only wears a top hat when walking around normally, and must enter Stealth Mode and be in a crouching position to wear the Assassin's iconic hood. Ever since Assassin's Creed III, there has been some ground swell to make the hood a toggled option allowing the player to wear it (or not) at will,and there is still a desire for this option.

So, Ubisoft, I request that you implement an option to switch between the top hat and hood at will, without requiring Stealth Mode to be used and forcing the player to be crouched if wearing the hood.

Many support the realism factor of wearing the top hat in Syndicate's Victorian period, and allowing a toggle option would satisfy both parties who want realism and to wear the iconic Assassin hood without having to sacrifice normal walking movements by a forced crouch in Stealth Mode. 

By accommodating this request you would be able to satisfy many fans whether they desire realism, or an iconic look.
