ACSyndicate-box-art.jpgExplore London’s Industrial Revolution

In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, get set to explore the largest and most modern open-world city ever created for an Assassin’s Creed game. The setting is London in the year 1868, towards the end of the Industrial Revolution, a time period marked by rapid technological progress—and a massive widening gap between the working class and the rich. With tensions rising, it’s time to unite the London underworld against their corrupt elite oppressors, Assassin’s Creed style!

By pre-ordering the game in-store at Best Buy, or online on BestBuy.ca, you’ll get access to two exciting new bonus missions that will take you to the inner chambers of London’s most influential men, Charles Darwin and Charles Dickens.

Two Playable Heroes

In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, you’ll step into the boots of Jacob Frye, who along with his twin sister Evie, are leaders of the notorious street gang, The Rooks. Jacob is a strong, close-quarters combat expert equipped with the signature Assassin’s hidden blade on his left-hand, and a pair of brass knuckles on his right-hand. He also possesses a poison dart to take down enemies at a distance, and can traverse the city quickly with his all-new rope launcher.

Evie, on the other hand, is a methodical master of stealth. She carries an arsenal of hidden weapons, including a cane-sword, throwing knives, and the Assassin’s hidden blade. You’ll have the ability to player as either Jacob or Evie during open-world exploration, but when on the narrative path, you’ll play as either Jacob or Evie, depending on the mission at hand.

In the debut trailer below you can see the beautiful London environments, and Jacob Frye in action:

Form your own gang to take over the London Underworld

As the twins Jacob and Evie, your mission is to rally Londoners around your cause and grow your syndicate’s influence. This is accomplished by conquering the streets of London, one borough at a time, and building your reputation through a range of activities, including: taking over enemy strongholds, participating in fight clubs, liberating children from factory foremen, bounty hunts, and pulling off boat or train heists. Expect to come across numerous iconic London locations, from Big Ben, to Saint Paul’s Cathedral, to Waterloo Station, all brought to life in vivid high-definition graphics on next-generation consoles!

There’s a lot more to see and do in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate than what’s described above, so I encourage you to check out Jon’s excellent overview post for additional insights.
