Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the next upcoming Assassin’s Creed game set in Victorian-era London. Developed by Quebec Studios, AC Syndicate takes place in 1868 during the industrial revolution and the massive poverty and social upheaval surrounding it.
“During the open world experience, players will be able to switch freely between the two characters, while story missions will restrict the choice for narrative reasons.”
Close range combat is the norm. Revolvers, brass knuckles, and a Bladed Assassin’s gauntlet are among the weapons in your arsenal. An assassin is also depicted wielding a kukri. Throwing knives may be used for silent kills.
Hallucinogenic darts turn enemies against each other, creating an environment of confusion to expedite assassinations.
A swinging blade and rope launcher concealed in the Assassin’s Gauntlet allow for expedited climbing. The rope launcher allows an Assassin to quickly reach the top of tall buildings, and a zip-line feature expedites traversal above the streets.
