Assassin’s Creed – it all started in November 2007 with Desmond Miles & Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad and now after eight main games, the ninth game is just around the corner.
The historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series moves to Victorian London this year with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
The Victorian London brings in a host of changes for Assassin’s Creed – “but it’s not the first game to reinvent the series. Every installment brought its own innovations and earth-shaking changes, and we’ll explore them all in this video series, starting with the first one. Find out what Altair did to shape eight years of Assassin’s Creed that followed his debut.”
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place in 1868, at the “tail end of the Industrial Revolution, with the Assassin Brotherhood all but eradicated, twins Jacob (Paul Amos) and Evie Frye (Victoria Atkin) leave Crawley for London and arrive to find a city controlled by the Templars, with both the Church and the Monarchy losing their power.
Raised as Assassins to follow the Creed, Jacob and Evie aim to take back the city from Templar control by infiltrating and uniting London’s criminal underworld, aided by notable figures of the era such as novelist Charles Dickens and biologist Charles Darwin.”
THE FIRST ASSASSIN AT THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN AGE
As the brash, rebellious Jacob Frye, put up your dukes and take enemies on with lightning-fast multikills and countermoves. Use improved stealth tactics to elude your enemies and unleash your arsenal of weapons, including the kukri knife, brass knuckles, and sword cane. Utilize new technology like the rope launcher to scale buildings in seconds and take your enemies by surprise.
TRAVERSE THE FAST-PACED WORLD OF INDUSTRIAL LONDON
From Buckingham Palace to Big Ben, fight and triumph across the massive open world of Victorian London. Parkour across moving vehicles to track down enemies or escape after a daring raid, hijack carriages to engage in a no-holds-barred street race, or blaze a trail of destruction aboard steamboats along the River Thames.
TAKE OVER THE LONDON UNDERWORLD
With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the elite and defeat rival gangs to bring freedom to the oppressed masses. Enemy strongholds can be infiltrated by using an arsenal of weapons to dominate London’s underworld. From robbing trains to rescuing child laborers, players will stop at nothing to bring justice to London’s lawless streets
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will launch on October 23, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One & PC.
