Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in late 19th century London, a time of social strife and protests that many times took place on the expansive Trafalgar Square (not unlike today…). Of course, the Frye brothers Jacob and Evie will be leading the Assassins against the oppressors of the lower classes (obviously their hated enemies, the Templars…). And the bitter struggle between the Assassins and the Templars has led to gang warfare in the game’s fictional London, which could offer players some interesting new gameplay, with large scale battles between Templars and Assassins for control of the city taking place in London locations like Trafalgar Square.
Note: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be released on October 23, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version will be available on November 19.
