About This Game
London, 1868. In the heart of the Industrial Revolution, lead your underworld organization and grow your influence to fight those who exploit the less privileged in the name of progress:
As Jacob Frye, a young and reckless Assassin, use your skills to help those trampled by the march of progress. From freeing exploited children used as slave labour in factories, to stealing precious assets from enemy boats, you will stop at nothing to bring justice back to London’s streets.
Command London’s underworld
To reclaim London for the people, you will need an army. As a gang leader, strengthen your stronghold and rally rival gang members to your cause, in order to take back the capital from the Templars’ hold.
A new dynamic fighting system
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, action is fast-paced and brutal. As a master of combat, combine powerful multi-kills and countermoves to strike your enemies down.
A whole new arsenal
Choose your own way to fight enemies. Take advantage of the Rope Launcher technology to be as stealthy as ever and strike with your Hidden Blade. Or choose the kukri knife and the brass knuckles to get the drop on your enemies.
A new age of transportation
In London, the systemic vehicles offer an ever-changing environment. Drive carriages to chase your target, use your parkour skills to engage in epic fights atop high-speed trains, or make your own way amongst the boats of the River Thames.
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.

I love Assassin's Creed Syndicate. Quite the controversial opinion I've discovered, since after the Metal Gear Solid V fiasco I solemnly decided never to watch trailers, gameplay videos or otherwise engage in the community of games I'm more than average exited about playing. As a result I dived into Syndicate pretty much completely blind after a much needed AC break of a little over a year. And I can assure you that it didn't disappoint. The exiting combat and increased fluidity of gameplay and movement is the main culprit here since previous installments felt like awkwardly moving through a jar of honey but this time around combat is fun, exiting and brutal and it made the core gameplay so much more fun than before that I wasn't even sick of it after 58 hours of gameplay. I found the story and setting far more interesting this time around as well, so much in fact that I was actually interested in sightseeing and reading Shaun's descriptions of buildings and characters. I won't go on much more here but I will say that I'm not in the camp of seemingly 99% of you who apparently hated all the things I loved. Play it. It's a good game.
I played all the Assassin's Creed today (except for Chronicles). I enjoyed all of them. This game is great, London is very well recreated and it is notorious the upgrade when compared to previous one especially for the destructibles thinks and how the crowed people interacts with the environment. I think that in overall, this is the best Assassin's Creed game today. Because, many repetitive things have been reduced. Still very repetitive game but, this time is repetitive in several type of missions. My concern is that after several AC games played so far, and think that it is hard to find what else can add to the overall story. I mean, after playing 80 hours average on each AC game (which is a lot considering my free time to invest on gaming), the underlying story behind each AC progress very slow. This game, like the previous one, has an exaggerate amount of collectible. I think that when someone has no much time available for gaming, having the sense that you only progress 60% to 80% after doing everything available (that matters) and then you need to invest another 40 hours to get the remaining 20% in nonsense collectibles... I think that we are closing to the end. And you can see that, when you see missions in World War I, I think that this mission has been done with the idea of testing with the gamer the acceptance of that. Don't take me wrong, it would be nicer to see AC in the near past, but it has to be careful created to avoid upset fans. The part of the story I like the most about AC games is the Scy-fy part and I want to have the complete understanding of that soon. This AC adds few to that part of the game. You can figure that this game is a most especially if you played the previous installments.
I have always been an assassin creed fan. But this has to be the best game in the entire series.This game is an absolute blast to play. The parkour is much better and the combat is also very good. Though the combat difficulty is moderate, it is fun and unlike unity it is not to tough. The story is also excellent. But the character development is quite strong in this game and the overall tone of the game remains comical.Many say that it is downgraded in comparison to unity, but it does not hold true.I have AC Unity in my account and after playing both the games Syndicate's graphics have a slight edge. The reason people think that Unity's graphics were better because the color tone of Unity's Paris and Syndicate's London is quite different and London looks a bit gloomy or washed out or whatever in comparison to Paris. But if you have played the Dead Kings DLC of Unity and then compared it with Syndicate, then Syndicate looks much better. Also removing multiplayer and adding additional features in the game was a welcome change. The lead characters Jacob and Evie are diverse and their constant differences and arguments pretty much sums up for strong character development in this one. The game is very polished and the bugs are ironed out. The combat is well balanced, the open world is fun,the sandbox approach is way more polished and transportation is a lot improved(horse carriages, the most awesome AC2 set piece now implemented in the open world) and rope launcher is a time saver and it also doesn't restrict you to enjoy the old building climbing. Moreover the carriages are also not forced in each and every mission like most of the missions Batman Arkham Knight forces you to use the Bat-mobile and character customization is a lot improved and there is a better way to earn skill points than in Unity.And moreover the side quests are not boring.And the loading time is a bit less than Unity. The relationship between the two main protagonists, Jacob and Evie Frye, both twins, made for some delighting family banter and quips. The contrast between Jacob, who wants to liberate London from the Blighters, a Street gang, and Evie, who sticks to the tenants of the Creed, and who wants to find Pieces of Eden to stop the Templars, was really nice. During story missions, however, you're usually locked into one character and will switch only when the game wants you to. I liked the customization of your gang, the Rooks, allowing for backup on a fight. There's no more swords, and enemies now have a health bar on top of Their heads. Only when this health bar is low enough can you kill them with a finisher, and these are delightfully brutal.The open world, it is ridiculously huge, Ubisoft wasn't joking when they said it was bigger than Unity's map by 30%. London is absolutely gorgeous. Trains add a whole new magical element as far as I'm concerned, I adore anything to do with trains and think they're a brilliant addition
While London doesn't look as impressive as Paris in Unity, game itself brings more fun. I especially love new protagonists - their difference in character and way of thinking make the game more interesting. And I can't imagine next AC game without rope launcher. Only carriage races suck, but you don't have to participate in any of them.
I loved Black flag. So i thought this one would be along those lines, as in its gameplay and so forth. I tried to play this game today, but the controls felt a little loose leaf like. Assassin Creed has lost its flare it once had. Its just a casual Sunday game for me. Not your everyday can't wait to get home to play kind of game.
