Ubisoft+ Spotlight - Assassin's Creed Syndicate
(Editorial note: This is a series of quick weekly highlights written by our News team writers that feature games available with a Ubisoft+ subscription. We hope you'll enjoy reminiscing with us, or perhaps discover something new.)
Mikel Reparaz, Editor: Assassin's Creed's closest brush with modernity is also one of the most distinctive games in the series. Set in 1860s London, it gives players not one but two Assassin heroes - rough-and-tumble Jacob Frye and his more pragmatic, elegant twin sister, Evie - and sets them loose to conquer the heart of an industrial-age empire, one gang-controlled borough at a time. More so than their flashier forebears, the Frye twins rely on concealable weaponry - brass knuckles, kukri knives, cane swords, and revolvers - and can use a steampunk rope launcher to quickly climb massive structures or bridge the wide gaps across London's busy streets. Navigating a world of crowds and horse-drawn carriages, they can expertly disappear into the former (and use them as cover for strong-arm kidnappings) and use the latter to stow away their targets before taking the reins and tearing through cobblestone avenues at high speeds. Along the way, the Fryes can go on pub crawls with Charles Dickens, rub shoulders with the likes of Charles Darwin and Karl Marx, and dismantle the criminal fiefdoms of upper-crust Templars with questionable facial hair. You can grab Assassin's Creed Syndicate from the Ubisoft Store for 75% off until July 18, or as part of a Ubisoft+ subscription.
