After a couple of months of speculation, Ubisoft have officially announced Assassin’s Creed Syndicate which takes place in 1868 in Victorian 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
To coincide with the announcement, Ubisoft have announced a few videos including a 9 minute gameplay trailer which you can see below.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 23rd and sometime this autumn on PC.
