Welcome to the Family
The Industrial Revolution brings an incredible age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies once thought impossible. Not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of this boom, however. Despite fueling the engine of the British Empire, workers’ lives are little more than legalized slavery while the top few percent profit from their labor.
Living poor and dying young, the lower class unite in protest as a new kind of family emerges: gangs, who turn to a life in the underworld in their struggle to survive...a struggle, until watchful Assassins come to their side.
The First Assassin at the Birth of the Modern Age
As the brash, rebellious Jacob Frye, put up your dukes and take enemies on, or play as Jacob’s twin sister Evie, a relentless Assassin who has perfected the silent, swift, invisible strike. Rise to rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue, and brutal combat.
Take Over the London Underworld
With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the elite and defeat rival gangs to bring freedom to the oppressed masses. Enemy strongholds can be infiltrated by using an arsenal of weapons to dominate London’s underworld. From robbing trains to rescuing child laborers, players will stop at nothing to bring justice to London’s lawless streets.
Devastate Your Enemies with Close-Range Brutal Combat
Hold nothing back as you unleash lightning-fast multikills and countermoves. Approach each fight the way that you want, whether it’s with new weapons such as brass knuckles and the sword cane, or by using the environment to execute unique creative takedowns, the choice is yours.
Traverse Fast-Paced Industrial London
From Buckingham Palace to Big Ben, fight and triumph across the massive open world of Victorian London. Parkour across moving vehicles to track down enemies or escape after a daring raid, hijack carriages to engage in a no-holds-barred street race, or blaze a trail of destruction aboard steamboats along the River Thames.
Master the Art of Stealth as Evie Frye
Play as Jacob’s twin sister Evie, a relentless Assassin who has perfected the silent, swift, invisible strike. Parkour across London’s immense open world using your status in London’s leading crime syndicate to change the city for the better.
Explore a Vast Open World
Travel the city at the height of the Industrial Revolution and meet iconic historical figures. From Westminster to Whitechapel, you will come across Darwin, Dickens, Queen Victoria…and many more.
London, 1868. The Industrial Revolution unleashes an incredible age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies once thought impossible. Opportunities created during this period have people rushing to London to engage in this new world, a world no longer controlled by kings, emperors, politicians, or religion, but by a new common denominator: money.
Not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of this boom, however. Despite fueling the engine of the British Empire, workers’ lives are little more than legalized slavery while the top few percent profit from their labor. Living poor and dying young, the lower class unite in protest as a new kind of family, gangs, who turn to a life in the underworld in their struggle to survive. A struggle, until watchful Assassins come to their side and re-ignite an age-old conflict involving London’s leaders that will echo throughout modern history, from the underground up.
Introducing Jacob Frye, who with the help of his twin sister Evie, will change the fate of millions in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Rise to rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue, and brutal combat.

I also very much enjoyed the story. As the second part of the new story arc that basically began with Unity, I felt they made huge strides, especially over that last game. Where Black Flag (and most likely Rogue although I havent played that) were sort of story bridges, and Unity was the inception of this new arc, Syndicate brought it forward nicely.
As always, once you finish the game, you can keep running around, wrapping up any loose ends and working on your trophies. With this once, fiishing the game actually unlocks some new quests that are unavailable before finishing the main story, so that was also a nice feature to include. Additionally, there is a not so secret area of the game map, that takes you to World War 1 London, where you play as an ancestor of Jacob Frye. That even increases the amount of gametime available to the base game.
This version, the Gold Edition, also features the season pass, which includes the Jack the Ripper DLC. I havent yet played that, but several of my friends enjoyed it and I look forward to doing so soon. When I do, I will amend my review accordingly.
I felt like Black Flag was the last of the AC games that really drove the modern day plot line forward. It also happens to be one of my favorites, the other being AC2.
Set during the Industrial Revolution, you play as Evie Frye and Jacob Frye. Twin assassins each with their own agenda. Jacob wants to usurp the templars power and force them out of London, by forming a gang to push out the enemy gang. Evie is trying to steal back the secret treasures that the templars have in their possession.
This version adds new tools that will become indispensable, especially for future titles. The grapple hook is by far the best tool available. Being able to grapple to the top of a building, then zip line across, makes travel so much better. Gone are the days of slowly finding a way up!
The game has sort of a Grand Theft Auto mixed with Batman feel actually. You can go from driving a carriage on a rampage, to stealthily crossing buildings picking out your next target. Throw in the occasional gang war, and GTA players will feel right at home.
The Gold Edition gets you the season pass, which includes additional side missions. These are fun to explore some of the more exciting stories that came from this time period.
