Release date, gameplay trailers, the whole shebang
After a few weeks of rumors, Ubisoft officially let this year's 'Assassin's Creed' out of the bag, which is now 'Assassin's Creed: Syndicate' instead of the previous (and, honestly, cooler sounding) 'Assassin's Creed: Victory'.
The game will be taking place in the 1880s in Victorian London. Your hero this time is a British gent named Jacob who intends to take the power back from London's elite with a little help from his friends. Namely, his sister Evie, and a whole host of angry street gangs. But here, let the debut trailer take care of the particulars:
Ubisoft also showed off the new toys for this go around, including a Batman-ish grappling hook, faster combat, some new stealth mechanics, and some 'GTA' style carriage hijacking. Check that out here:
The game will be hitting on October 23rd. Clear your schedule.
