The lead developer, Ubisoft Quebec have been handed the task of creating a game which will bring this games series to the industrial age.
It has been confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is going to be set in the Victorian London age. The game will be launched this October for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. What else is news, the studio has brought a new gameplay feature which starts the game with a brother and sister lead duo. This will give the players new ways to explore London.
Marc-Alexis Cote, the creative director made use of the famouse Dickens quote to give you an description of the Victorian Age – “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”. The setting of the game takes us as far back as the 1868 in London, which was around the end of the industrial revolution. Cote said, “To control London in 1868 was basically to control the world.” . The target of the assassin’s is The Templars. Which seems to be in charge and London is the very core of their power.
With the industrial advancements and technology improvements that change the world of today, Ubisoft have made the use of the improvements to change the look and feel of the series.
Cote further said, “All those technological changes will make it feel like we are leaving behind the medieval era that we have featured in past Assassin’s Creed games, and moved into the modern age.” and, “There is no better place to do that than in an age of transformation, an age like the Industrial Revolution”.
Something new that will be added into the new game to the Assassin’s Creed series is that players will be given access to the modern weapons and tools of the era, the one tool that stands out is the all new rope dart, which will allow the player to propel you to the top of buildings and can be used as a zipline for the quick escape.
