OutsideXbox has provided some nice gameplay from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate from E3 2015, in which Jacob Frye and his twin Evie break gang leader Bloody Nora’s grip on the City of London. Watch for the new rope launcher, used to grapple up to rooftops and zipline between them, along with drivable horse-drawn carriages and crunchy street brawling combat from new tophatted protagonist Jacob.

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.

Creative director at Ubisoft Quebec Marc-Alexis Côté, in an interview with Official Xbox Magazine, explains that the side missions in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, have been designed to make sense for the players and reflect the main narrative and goal.

“In Assassin’s Creed we tend to be very generous with the activities that players can engage in, but one of the things that we need to do to modernise the experience is to make sure that those activities make sense for the players – and this is something that we are working on this year,”

Côté continues that the goal is to take back London, and each activity makes sense in the quest of the protagonist.

“Every activity that the player will do will make sense in the narrative quest of the protagonist,”

“The goal is to take back London, so all the activities that you will do in the open world will serve that as well as the main storyline.”
