Ubisoft has officially unveiled this year’s Assassin’s Creed release, which is titled Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. In addition to a first cinematic trailer, a gameplay demo has also been released online. This isn’t the only game in the franchise this year, either, as the smaller arcade-style Assassin’s Creed Chronicleswas announced at the start of April.
As was expected the game is set in London during the Victorian era, in the year 1868. You can play as Jacob Frye, or, in response to some criticism for their lack of an option to play as a female assassin in these games, Jacob’s twin sister Evie.
You can read much more about the game and watch the trailer, gameplay demo, and introduction to Jacob Frye video below.
The Assassinâ€™s Creed Syndicate story throws you into the dawn of the modern era during the Industrial Revolution. You play Jacob Frye, a gangster assassin fighting for justice on behalf of Londonâ€™s enslaved working class. Watch as Jacob rallies his gang to break the corrupt stranglehold on London and bring the working class a brighter future.
