PS4 exclusive Assassin’s Creed Syndicate DLC worth more than a penny

2 min read

ACS penny dreadful

Crime series and books are all too common in modern entertainment. With popular series like Criminal Minds, CSI, Law & Order and plenty of others, we are used to consuming sordid events as entertainment. However, this concept really only became popularized during the Victorian era with Penny Dreadfuls, and of course they will be included in the new Assassin’s Creed, but only if you play on PS4.

I’ll be honest, I was a bit confused by this – I was under the impression that Assassin’s Creed was sort of in bed with Xbox One. Oh well, I’m not complaining – I’ll happily play the game on PS4 and get access to this cool exclusive content. Here is the trailer for the Dreadful Crimes extra content:

According to the PlayStation blog, the Dreadful Crimes Mission Pack explores the roots of the Penny Dreadful fad that swept London during the period.

The Dreadful Crimes Mission Pack explores the roots of this gruesome fad sweeping London through the eyes of a young connoisseur of detective stories named Artie, who teams up with famous Penny Dreadful journalist Henry Raymond.

The unlikely pair will tackle the most sordid crimes of their day in explorations spanning the entirety of London, from the grimy slums of Whitechapel all the way to the profound opulence of Buckingham Palace itself. Playing as either of the Frye twins, you’ll be able to engage an enhanced version of Eagle Vision to uncover pertinent details and clues and rebuild crime scenes.

So you can use your detective eagle vision to solve crimes, identify culprits and accuse people? That does sound like a rather entertaining collection of side missions. PS4 players will get ten of these exclusive missions, plus they’re unlock unique in-game items utilized by iconic detectives of the day. If I don’t get a monocle and Sherlock Holmes hat, I’ll be rather disappointed.

I’m not really the biggest fan of exclusive content for one platform or another, but I suppose it makes sense for publishers. They need to get in bed with the platform people, and this is an easy way to make that partnership appealing. I’m just struggling to keep track of which game is preferred on which platform. Can someone make me a flow chart or something?

    You know what is quite bad, I know that they are working hard to make games and that certain people deserve credit for doing awesome work, but all the damn AC’s the last couple of years have just killed it for me. I LOVED the story and the game for AC1, AC2, and AC2.1, but after all that, it just became too much to keep track of.

    And not to even mention their buggy game to semi working game to brilliant game ratio.

    Sorry guys, the ship has sailed for me, Steam Sale or GTFO

    How can this article be serious?

    (1) This is FREE exclusive content. Not paid DLC.
    (2) Assassins Creed has always had the free exclusive content deal with PlayStation. Most of the PS3 games and all of the PS4 Assassins Creed games have had this free exclusive content.
    (3) Xbox rarely has free exclusive content. All I even know of is some Fifa content and supposedly Just Cause 3 is coming with a free game (but I wouldn’t count PlayStation out on that either).
    (4) Just a few of the games PlayStation has enjoyed free exclusive content on.
    PS3 – Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City, Battlefield BC2, Battlefield 3, most Assassins Creed games, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Mafia 2, FEAR, Fight Night Round 3, 007 Legends, Far Cry 3.
    PS4 – Destiny, Watchdogs, Mad Max, Assassins Creed, Batman Arkham Knight and I think there were a couple more already too.

      What does it matter you don’t play games anyway.

      Sony’s got another washed up series on lock.

      Are they going to add a MySpace app soon?

        Awe, look at the butt hurt xbot following me around the net. I could set my account as private but I’m afraid of what you might do to yourself if you don’t have me to look up to.

            What you didn’t see me pwn efnet about my wages? I probably make far more than you, if you even work. Kid I probably have more in my savings alone right now than you have ever made in your freaking life. In fact that’s pretty damn likely.
