The next Assassin’s Creed game will be set in 19th Century, Victorian-era London, with several new features unique to the period.
Just as 2014 debut Watch_Dogs had taken its publisher’s Assassin’s Creed knowledge and applied it to a Grand Theft Auto template, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate adds vehicles of its own in the form of trains and horse-drawn carriages.
The new trailer shows that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will take place during the industrial revolution in London in 1868. The game features assassins that are British gangsters that use new technology to complete their missions. This includes a grappling hook that allows the assassin to reach rooftops easily and trains for fast travel.
The main character of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is Jacob Frye. Frye works to free London’s working class from enslavement. Players will also get the chance to control his sister, Evie. Notable locations included in the new game are Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate won’t have any multiplayer to it. Instead, the creators want to focus on the single-player experience to make it new and fresh.
