Today, Ubisoft® announced that Assassin’s Creed ® Syndicate, the newest installment in the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed franchise, will be available worldwide on October 23.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an epic single player experience set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution, a time which stops revolving around kings and religions and revolves around money. During this time, the gap between the poor and the rich expands exponentially, making workers’ lives little more than slavery. The lower classes fight for survival by forming a new kind of family – gangs – and adapting to life in the criminal underworld. Players will embody both Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, twin Assassins raised to follow the Creed. Jacob, a determined, hot-headed and rebellious leader of an underground gang, is vastly different than his sister Evie, a master of stealth and control. Together, Jacob and Evie team up to challenge rivals, plutocrats and Templars alike to free the masses from poverty and corruption, and, ultimately, wrestle back control of 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.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate won’t gave a multiplayer component, as the other games have had, that includes the new Co-op mode that Assassin’s Creed Unity brought to the table. The reason for this is to allow them to focus all efforts of the studios on the roots of the franchise, the single-player experience.
