Assassin’s Creed Syndicate features London way back 1868. The Industrial Revolution was an age of skyrocketing development. It introduced an age of invention, transforming the lives of millions of people overnight with technology and machinery we though was impossible before. This created an opening for opportunities for jobs and had people rushing to London to be part of this new world – a world no longer controlled by kings, emperors, politicians or religion, but by money.
Not everyone is enjoying the benefits of this development. Despite being the British Empire’s asset, the workers’ lives are still valued poorly. They are treated more as slaves rather than assets, and only the top few percent profit from the labor. The game introduces Jacob Frye, who, with the help of his twin sister, will attempt to change this corrupt system. As Jacob, you will pave the way for the fate of millions. Stand up for what’s right and lead the underworld to change this corrupt and disgusting system on London in an epic adventure filled with action, intrigue and violent combat.
You will take on the role of Jacob Frye, a young but skilled Assassin. Use your skills to help the oppressed and free the exploited children used in slave labor in factories, or steal precious assets from enemy boats. You will stop at nothing to bring justice back to London’s streets!
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate features fast-paced and brutal action. Combine powerful skills and countermoves to eradicate your enemies.
You must reclaim London for the people, and for that to happen, you will need an army. Be the gang’s leader, strengthen your stronghold and persuade rival gang members to your cause, in order to take back the capital from the Templars’ grasp.
Fight your own way. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate introduces the Rope Launcher technology to be as stealthy as ever and strike with your Hidden Blade. You can also use the kukri knife and the brass knuckles to strike down your enemies.
