To be clear, we are talking about the real life replica models of both.
The two signature weapons in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Syndicate look to be the Assassin Gauntlet and Sword Cane, and Ubisoft will be allowing series fans to collect real life scale replicas of both. They seem to be pretty lovingly made and finely crafted, and if you are at all a fan of the series and/or plan to cosplay as an Assassin any time soon, they will be must haves for sure.
Both items cost $59.99 each – which is the price of the game itself – but at the very least, their build quality seems to indicate that they will be worth it. If people can spend $13 on a Slylander of an Amiibo, which are all far cheaply made, then serious collectors should find no problems with the sticker price of these replicas. Of course, to more casual fans, there might be a case of sticker shock incoming…
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 23, with a PC version scheduled to follow later. Stay tuned.
