Assassin’s Creed Syndicate full details are here

The new Assassin’s Creed will be called Syndicate and will be set in the Victorian era in London in the year 1868. From the video reveal from Ubisoft, we can immediately see that this release will be a more brutal version than it’s predecessors. The game is currently in development by the Quebec Studios of Ubisoft.

The story takes us during the big industrial revolution of London and we see our hero Jacob Frye where we see the upper class crushing the low class people i.e. the workers with work and no money. Jabob is here to give the upper class a bit of a shock in getting money, wealth and life back to the workers. This is the era where the world is ruled by money and the worker dies to survive.

In this game it’s all about controlling the gangs and getting you gangs in control of the area. Since this is set in the industrial revolution, we see that our hero has some new tech like the Rope launcher to climb buildings faster or zip from one roof top to roof top. You can now go onto and driver horse carriages to even go faster through the city or run away from your enemy. Using the environment will help you to kill enemies like cutting a rope holding barrels in the air and drop them on the enemy.

“The ability to lead an underground gang, commandeer any vehicle on hand and use modern tools to take on an expansive and fast-paced Victorian London sets this game apart,” said Marc-Alexis Côté, Creative Director at Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has been in development for more than two years and this new modern take on the living open world will please Assassin’s Creed fans and newcomers alike.”

The weaponry announced was the
– Kukri blade
– Pistol – Revolver

Update, press release below as released by Ubisoft

Developed by Ubisoft Quebec in collaboration with eight other Ubisoft studios*, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an epic single player experience set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution, an incredible age of invention that transforms the lives of millions. During this time, the gap between the poor and the rich expands exponentially, making workers’ lives little more than legalised slavery. The lower classes fight for survival by forming a new kind of family – gangs – and adapting to life in the criminal underworld. Players will embody both Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, twin Assassins raised to follow the Creed. Jacob, a determined, hot-headed and rebellious leader of an underground gang, is vastly different than his sister Evie, a master of stealth and control. Together, Jacob and Evie team up to challenge rivals, plutocrats and Templars alike to free the masses from poverty and corruption, and, ultimately, wrestle back control of London.

In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, players explore the largest, most modern open-world city ever created in an Assassin’s Creed game. The fighting is more brutal than ever, as players combat rival gangs and grow their sphere of influence throughout London using new weapons, including brass knuckles, a kukri knife, a revolver and the Assassin’s gauntlet. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate also includes innovative navigation and transportation throughout the open world, including a rope launcher for scaling tall Victorian buildings, zip-lining from rooftop to rooftop or performing aerial assassinations, and horse-drawn carriages and high-speed trains for free-running, tracking down enemies or escaping after daring raids.
