New game in the franchise out now.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the latest game in their long running open world stealth action adventure series, is available now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution. Players will step into the shoes of twin Master Assassins, Jacob and Evie Frye, who fight to liberate London from the organized crime that arose in the city in the wake of industrialization.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate follows in the heels of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Unity, which is largely considered to be a disappointment; the game sees the return of several older features to the franchise that Unity cut out, and also brings with it several new features, such as a central train loop that players can navigate on, horse drawn carriages that can be hijacked and driven, and a new zipline, all to facilitate better navigation.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is out now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4; the PC version will launch on November 19.
