Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Portrays the River Thames to be as Imprortant as it was During The Industrial Revolution Era
In an interview in the new issue of Official Xbox Magazine, senior producer Francois Pelland explains the great importance of the river Thames in Assassins's Creed Syndicate.
In Assassin's Creed Syndicate the river Thames is of great importance staying true to what it was during the Industrial Revolution era
"We treat the Thames almost as its own borough in a way, because it really does have its own story, it has its own way of functioning,"
"Without getting into too much detail too far in advance, we knew we needed to be true to what the purpose of the river Thames was back then. London was controlling a quarter of the population of the entire world. It was the centre of the industrial production of the world. So it was a key port, with boats shipping production in and out. We’ll be going into more detail about this later."
In Assassin's Creed Syndicate you can traverse the fast-paced world of Industrial London
From Buckingham Palace to Whitechapel, fight and triumph across the massive open world of Victorian London. Parkour across moving vehicles to track down enemies or escape after a daring raid. Hijack carriages and engage in no-holds-barred street races or blaze a trail of destruction aboard steamboats on the River Thames.
Assassin's Creed Syndicate enables players to take-over the London underworld
With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the plutocrats and defeat rival gangs, to bring freedom to the oppressed masses. Enemy strongholds can be infiltrated by using an arsenal of weapons to dominate London’s underworld. From robbing trains to rescuing child laborers, players will stop at nothing to bring justice to London’s lawless streets.
