A new Assassin’s Creed game reveal is like summer, you know they’re both coming every single year! But just like summer, Assassin’s Creed games are usually a fun time (look past the bugs of Unity, and it’s an enjoyable game). There’s nothing like taking control of a ruthless assassin and going on a rampage against guards and Templar soldiers with an arsenal of weapons! The newest installment of the franchise looks to carry that tradition.
Titled Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the game is set in London in 1868. You play can play as either of two playable protagonists, Jacob and his twin sister Evie. According to Ubisoft, Jacob is “more hot headed, brash and rebellious”, while Evie is “a relentless Assassin” and “a master of stealth”. You’ll be able to switch freely between characters during the game. The story sees the twins heading to the City, as the Industrial Revolution reaches its climax to free the masses from the poverty they suffer and lead an uprising against an oppressive establishment which conceals the Templars.
Since Assassin’s Creed is always loosely based on real events, real historical figures like Charles Dickens and Charles Darwin will make be among your allies in the game. You can check out the debut trailer for the game below.
