Players Receive A Helping Hand From Some Familiar Faces In Assassins Creed Syndicate

From the looks of it you’d struggle to find a famous Victorian face that Ubisoft hasn’t labelled a member of the Assassins in the latest Assassin’s Creed Syndicate trailer. I mean, even poor old Florence Nightingale, who dedicated her life to healing, has given her backing to a good shivving in Leicester Square.

I happen to love Ubisoft’s warped histories, but authenticity has well and truly been throw out the window with this line-up in the new historical characters trailer. Charles Darwin, eminent thinker Karl Marx, Queen Victoria and Alexander Graham Bell are just some of the famous characters lending Evie and Jacob Frye a hand, as they attempt to claim the London streets back for the working people. Even Charles Dickens doesn’t mind lending some backing to a pack of ruthless murderers. Clearly those novels just aren't paying the bills.

I’ve come to realise recently that I’ve probably got a memory span of roughly 10 months, give or take. After being sick to the death of the formula by the time the credits rolled in Assassin’s Creed Unity, I now find myself eagerly anticipating yet another outing. Well done Ubisoft you hooked me back in, you swines.

That said, from the a visual standpoint Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is certainly visually no better looking than Unity, if not a little worse. Unity was a fine looking game, visual glitches notwithstanding, so this is no bad thing. What it does mean is the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate system requirements should be, fingers crossed, no higher.

Are you picking up AC Syndicate?

I pre-ordered so many of the previous Assassin's Creed games, but I've seen the light, and I'm going to wait on this one. I know I'll get it eventually; I want to play it. But I'm going to wait until it looks like all the bugs have been paved over, or check the reviews to see if it's a lot smoother of a release than Unity. Besides, I've got a lot of other games I still haven't finished, so that gives me more time for them.

Ubisoft is more a trailer developer than a game developer

Folks saying the visual has been downgraded from Unity. Nope, its not. But the facial hairworks in this upcoming game is surely worse.

Haven't bought an Assassin's Creed game ever since the DLC scandal in AC2 and the giant mess that was Unity's launch sure didn't change my mind.

Well, if you haven't played any AC game since AC2, then you missed out on some great stories.

I know AC has alot of money grabs sense AC2 and AC2 is most known for being the best one in the series but, do yourself a huge favor and play BlackFlag you won't regret it.

Black Flag has a good story in it. But I easily got bored on ship battles. I want an assassin mission but It gave me too much ship missions. though I still finished the game just for the story.

If you dont play assassins creed than in my book you are not a gamer.
Sorry but i am a huge fan and AC u porting to PC was bad but in Playstation 4 it looked stunning.
I own Assassins Creed Black Flag and Unity for both PC and PS4.
After applying all the updates PC gameply is a visual treat.

Have you played the game ? Don't trust the graphics from YT. Also it can't really look better than Unity, Both use the same engine.

Charles Darwin? I sure hope they don't forget to mention alternative theories on how men were created, otherwhise it will have to be banned in the US.
A good laugh for every non US American (and maybe for some US Americans as well): link
