Assassin's Creed Syndicate: 7 New Things About the Upcoming Game

The Rooks
Let's wake them up, shall we?

What makes everyone excited about the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate?

The working class sleepwalks through life, unaware of the machine that drives them.

The beauty of London was just a mask, covering its gruesome insides.

The Industrial Revolution brought a golden age when technology improved the standard of living. Ironically, only those who didn’t work for it reaped most of its benefits.

Nobility earned a living from the working class; the latter exposed to harsh labor, leaving the ones in the higher ranks profiting from it. With daily work almost synonymous to legalized slavery, people became painfully aware of the situation, yet they were unable to successfully speak their minds.

Is there a way to wake up from this nightmare?

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate offers the signature assassination techniques common in the previous titles with new characters and features that blend well with modern atmosphere of Victorian London. Here are 7 new things to know about the upcoming game:

The Modern Era

Overlooking Thames River

New world, new life.

The Assassin’s Creed games were commonly set in the medieval times. In Syndicate, the game world is closer to the modern day era. Situated in 1868 London, the rise of industrialization drives the storyline.

Major conflicts had already been concluded; it was a relatively peaceful time in history when people started to rebuild and improve their way of life several years past the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars.

A Night in 1868 London

1868 London remains alive, even at night.

This time, the game shifts from the old-fashioned cityscape to a modern, industrialized setting: tall buildings and brick roads replacing castle forts and cobblestone walkways, modes of transport being readily available, and switching from almost barren villages to livelier, busier streets full of people. Victorian London presents a more dynamic, fast-paced background that has not been used in the former titles.
