Now that the next entry in the longstanding Assassin’s Creed franchise has been revealed, fans have a medley of reasons to be excited for the new game. Being fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the title before its official unveiling, however, we were quick to nail down five new aspects of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate that make us excited for the game’s inevitable arrival.
The next entry in the beloved series has a number of new features for gamers to anticipate, but we’ve selected a handful that best showcase what hopeful players have to look forward to later this year. With all of that said, here are five reasons why we’re excited for the newly announced Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
With each new installment in the franchise, a new setting is almost a given. Outside of the initial Ezio-based trilogy, Assassin’s Creed has done a good job at mixing up the locales of each entry and the same holds true with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Taking place in London, England during 1868, wannabe assassins are thrown into a revolution that ushered in the modern world as we know it – more specifically, the Industrial Revolution.
During this era, inventions such as the train, steam boat, and telegraph brought with them the beginning of many of the modern conveniences that we utilize every day. There was a lot happening during this time frame, and it’s going to be interesting to see how historical figures like Charles Dickens and Charles Darwin interact with the narrative this time around.
