Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – Creative Director Explains What’s New
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the latest entry in the massively popular franchise, and it’s had to make some pretty major changes in order to adapt to its most modern setting to date.
Learn a bit more about the twin Assassins Jacob and Evie Frye and how the core pillars of the Assassin’s Creed franchise have evolved in this exclusive interview with Creative Director Marc-Alexis Coté.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes players to London during the industrial revolution
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate players will take control of both Jacob and Evie Frye, twin brother and sister. Syndicate will feature a new combat system, new weapons, a grappling hook and a territory system similar to Far Cry’s outposts.
The year is 1868. It’s the tail-end of the Industrial Revolution in London. Money is power and those who don’t have it are cast aside by society and left to rot. Many turn to a life of crime in order to survive. The Assassins have been forced out and the Templars now control every major enterprise in the city. Twin Assassins Jacob and Evie Frye take it upon themselves to steal London back by force, uniting the local gangs under one banner and conquering the city borough-by-borough.
