In what has become an annual ritual, Assassin’s Creed is back with new game play and a new setting and environment with Syndicate. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place in London during the Industrial Revolution and you can interchange between playing twins Jacob and Evie and navigate a world of factories, trains and the trappings of the Industrial Revolution. You can actually interchange characters within game play. I initially got to play Syndicate during E3 and was impressed then by the ability to travel the city with a new rope launcher feature.
With this feature you have more agility and can target and launch travel between buildings and make great use of light poles. You can also control vehicles in Syndicate. Unfortunately, there is no multiplayer functionality in this edition of Assassin’s Creed. For more information, visit http://assassinscreed.ubi.com.
