Jacob Frye is this holiday’s Assassin in AC: Syndicate

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (formerly known as Victory) is going to be officially revealed tomorrow when Ubisoft does their live stream. However, Polygon got their hands on some promotional material with some initial info.

According to the marketing material, the game will:

transport millions of gamers to an astonishing recreation of London during the Industrial Revolution where they will find themselves immersed in a game world they’ll have to see to believe.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will star Jacob Frye, and those who are still gullible enough to pre-order games can do so through GameSpot to get a replica shilling pendant. It still weirds me out that we know pre-order details before we know, you know, actual game details.

Still, I’m glad we have a name and I’m looking forward to the official information. Assassin’s Creed games are always visually stunning and offer impressive breadth. I’m honestly excited for this title – there is so much that can be done in that time period; and it’s just modern enough to feel like a great leap forward while still seriously rooted in the past. Plus, there can be all kinds of fun areas of London to explore and hopefully a lot of full scale buildings ala what we saw in Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

It’s nice to have confirmation of the game’s title, as well as setting and the main assassin. Here’s hoping that they’ve learned from their mistakes from last year and launch a really quality game on day one. Perhaps even with some female assassins if they had the resources to animate them.

    I miss Assassin’s Creed. Only 1, 2, and 4 have a place in memory. I have played many parkour/sandbox/quiet stabby games with that name, but only 3 Assassin’s Creeds. So please let this be good.

      not really excited, but that black and gold with the walking stick looks legit.

      if they take what they did right with unity, il be stoked and will prolly buy it if its not like R600 on pc.

            if it comes up at R450 when it comes up on preorder, il probably bag it.
            anything under that is unrealistic, will probably be 2 years+ till it shows up on a steam special for under R400

      The game was R299 on XBL last week. I paid R199 during a sale. It’s a beautiful game with interesting mechanics but the story is a snore fest from midway onward.

    Assassins creed liberty had a female main didnt it? came with my old graphics card when it was eventually released for pc, played like 5 minutes and stopped because it was bad, not because female.
    Id be down for a chick assassin, a bit of change is good.

    played a bit of unity, wasnt as fun as Rogue or Black Flag. better, but not as fun.
    better isnt always better.

    the city was too big, i feel the need to clean up a map befor touching the story line, when i messed around in unity, it took way too long. previous games got it right, separate it more.

    the coop and those random missions felt forced if you wanted to level.
    customisation was nice and felt fresh, but the best looking loot was always trash tier… would also have liked a custom colour selection thing. their options were trash.

    they must learn from their mistakes as much as they do from the stuff they do right.
