Ubisoft shared two new trailers for Assassins Creed: Syndicate, the newest entry of the game taking place in 1868 London during the Industrial Revolution. The game looks fantastic and it’s a real treat to be visiting London in the game – I can’t wait to get my hands on it. It stars Jacob Freye as he rises to rally the London Underworld and change the fate of millions. Check out the trailers below:
This trailer shows off Evie Frey, Jacob’s twin sister, as she demonstrates her nimble yet deadly assassin skills on unsuspecting foes. You’ll also get the opportunity to play as Evie during gameplay – for the first time in Assassin’s Creed there’ll be two main characters.
Here’s some more gameplay showing off the improved combat system, horse and carriage riding, stealth action and battles atop a moving train. It’s looking stunning, fun and an improvement on the sometimes underwhelming Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
Ubisoft released the following details of the game’s features:
“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. Utilise 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. Use 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 dangerous streets.
MASTER THE ART OF STEALTH AS EVIE FRYE
Play as Jacob’s twin sister Evie, a relentless Assassin who has perfected the silent, swift and stealthy strike. Use parkour to navigate across the immense open world using your status in London’s leading gang to change the city for the better.”
The game is hitting Playstation 4 and Xbox One October 23rd and then coming to PC sometime later in Fall. I can’t wait – this looks like it could be one of the best entries in the series yet.
