Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is coming out with it’s most realistic styling yet in the Assassin’s Creed world.
The Industrial Revolution: taught in American schools as a glamorous and prosperous time. The time that made everything better. Yeah right, it was glamorous – unless you like rolling around in the muck, barely making enough for bread whilst the uppy-ups fatten themselves on your sweat and tears, and possibly blood (depending on your occupation). Nonetheless, this is the setting behind the newest (and soon-to-be determined greatest) installment of the famed Assassin’s Creed series. The ninth game: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate! The best news? This game will be released October 23, 2015 for the Xbox One and PS4. Before the end of the year, a playable PC version will be released, but the specific date is not yet known.
Ubisoft released, at E3, an absolutely beautiful premier trailer this week at its convention with the most beautifully realistic characters yet seen in this saga. Thankfully, this isn’t the only trailer released to the public. For another view of the world you’ll be playing in, click here.
London, 1868: Jacob and Evie Frye enter the Templar-controlled capital. Wanting to liberate this bustling city from the poverty forced on its citizens, the twins work their Brotherhood “magic” to control organized crime in order build the needed army, known as the Rooks, to reclaim London.
This is the first time Ubisoft has permitted the player to choose which character they would like to play in the story campaign. Thankfully this in not the only new function that has been introduced. Remember knocking guards off horses in Revolution and then stealing their horse? Well how about hijacking an entire carriage? Or using a powered (springs and gear pulleys?) grappling wire to save yourself from falls or climbing large buildings with ease and speed? I feel potentially gruesome death scenes on the rise (RedGuinness is going to get to see me squee at the terror and death I’ll be dealing…
I really hope to see it used as a garrote I mean…rainbows and unicorns? That’s what I said, right?).
We shall see what comes when the game is released. I cannot adequately tell you how excited I am for the new story that is about to unfold. With eight Assassin’s Creed games already released, I am glad to say I can easily look past the monotonous side quests that are likely to be included here as well. Ubisoft has come a long way from the tedious hunting down of flags in Acre, Damascus, Masyaf, Jerusalem and the Kingdom.
