Rumours that the game would feature a male and a female protagonist were also confirmed. The story follows twins Jacob and Evie Frye in 1886, London. You will be able to choose which character to use at any point throughout the game, but both characters have particular skills that will be more useful during certain missions. Considering the time period is during the Industrial Revolution we should see some changes in the technology used during the game, as seen in this trailer with the grappling hook. There are also carriages that you will be able to control to quickly make your way through the city. That said, one of my favourite parts of the Assassin’s Creed games is the parkour style traveling you do on foot.
Along with the CGI announcement trailer, Ubisoft also released a character trailer for Jacob Frye that highlights some of his weapons, as well as a 9 minute game play video.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on October 23rd, and to PC a little later this fall.
