Ubisoft disappointed many with their latest Assassin’s Creed game Unity and their two side story follow ups Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China both failed to garner much good will from fans. Still Ubisoft is gonna Ubisoft and they bring us their next 8th gen installment of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
The AC games have an annoying tendency to interest me after I want nothing to do with them. They got me back with Pirate ships in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and they very well just may get me back with the fancy steam punk-ish design and Victorian London setting. The dude rolls around in a top hat stabbing dudes with his multitool assassin gauntlet. How can you not love that?
In addition to the trailer we have a gameplay walkthrough of some pre-alpha footage showing off a cool grappling hook, gang mechanics and some sweet horse buggy chase action. There’s also an 18 minute game overview video showing off the hero, Jacob Frye’s new gear and game mechanics. Also Brock Lesnar hitting a dude in the head with a shovel pops up at the 7:12 mark so it’s automatically GOTY.
Dammit they sucked me back in!
