Ubisoft has begun opening up about the story details of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, revealing Crawford Starrick in the new story trailer. He’s the head of the Templar order and all-round bad chap, and he’s got seven deadly henchmen scattered throughout London, ready to do his bidding. From this info I can confidently tell you there will be a total of eight assassination target missions.

It’s almost fascinating watching the predictability with which Ubisoft s hoehorns in the good versus evil, assassins versus templar, poor versus rich template. This time the streets of London are controlled by wealthy bankers, dangerous scientists and lethal crime lords. It’s up to Jacob and Evie Frye to rise up from these streets and take London back for the common man.

So there we have it, it’s the same story in a different place and time. Hurrah! I still want to play it though…

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is out on October 23rd for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, before arriving a month later on November 19th for PC. Hopefully that final month can be used for a bit of a fine-tuning, or at least to ensure character models have faces.

When will EA end Assassin's Creed franchise? I already played from AC1 to AC: Unity. And I don't think the story are still related. They keep introducing new powerful items and characters. I hope they just kept focusing on the Apple of Eden and Desmond Miles. :-(

Videogamer.com played a pre-release build of the PS4 version and said it struggled to hit 30fps and was probably 900p. They weren't allowed to capture footage but were, later, sent promotional footage that ran a lot better then the preview build did. Ubisoft seem to have learnt nothing from the Unity disaster.

On the other hand, Eurogamer, IGN and others who tried the game's demo reported that the game performed much better than Unity and that Ubisoft actually learnt from the Unity disaster..where is the truth dude? We'll see soon..but many reported positively than negatively.

Not really sure what wrong I said to be downvoted...God that amount of hate to AC is really unbearable! People would believe what they want to believe even if it has no solid proof, so be it..better to stop conversing :)

video patch development is delayed because fans demand more than console-like 1fps which means months of additional work xD

IMO a key point beside the "next-gen" (ps3 times) game mechanics like the parcour-running which was not present in any other game at that time, the actual setting (animus/moderntimes with desmond and the animus part) was pretty fresh at the time and last but not least the story. The story was what kept me going ...

... even though i started to find the gameplay a bit boring coming to revelations and then AC3 (ac3 at least brought up the ship sections). But it died with ac black flag for me since i couldnt get a hold on the story. Meanwhile i dont care anymore. Fore me the series ended with the desmond story.

For me the previous day sections stories weren't of interest in AC4 however the modern day gave us many clues. Try AC Rogue it has a good ancient story as well as some light on whats happening in the modern world.

My interest for this series is currently flatlining and has been for a recent number of years. There's nothing to be excited about from my perspective! Syndicate promises to be a pretty game but nothing more, with almost the same story and little tweaks in gameplay. I just hope Ubisoft has not once again forgotten about us PC gamers, may this year's AC be a decent port!

I really hope that this would sell remarkably less than previous AC games, so maybe they would finally give this franchise a break. Maybe after few years AC would feel fresh again.
