The game starts as twin Assassins, Evie and Jacob Frye set out to abolish a child labour mill only to ascertain that the mill’s leader and his fellow Templar allies are meagre pawns under the employment of Starrik, a ruthless Grand Master who is intent of wiping out the already perishing Assassins Order.

This prompts the two twins to set out for London, in order to face the Grand Master head on, and stifle the vast and diminutive Templar order.

Combat has drastically changed

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC

Developer: Ubisoft Quebec

Publisher: Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate sees the debut of dual characters, which permits players to utilize a wide arsenal of new gadgets and weapons, each linking to their character’s central play style.

Straying from prior titles in the series, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate sees the implementation of gang warfare, in which players will see players raid their foes strongholds, in order to abolish the Templar hordes that command London. Although, if players wish to seize their foes strongholds they must compose a stronger gang via upgrades and stat changes, allowing your Rook allies to easily aid you in your encroaching fight .

Another new feature making its debut in the title is the ability to commandeer an extensive number of Horse drawn contraptions, ranging from the a mere royal carriage, to fire engine. However, when it comes to skyline traversal  players are permitted to utilise the unparalleled power of the grapple which will allow players to climb imposing towers, as well as abscond enemy strongholds.

Burroughs drastically vary in setting

Not only this but the title also sees the introduction of 2 diverse new perk options, firstly is the gang tree which harbours a range of new abilities from a drastically decreased Templar presence, to a swifter and higher income rating. Secondly is the Assassin tree, which too harbours a range of new abilities, such as the Chameleon Skin, and the Slayer perk.

What truly encapsulates Assassins Creed Syndicate is as players traverse the Templar dominated streets of London, obtaining a bounty of side quests each of which offering up a range of new weapons, abilities and allies. Although, the game does not only consist of linear and tedious side quest like prior titles, but rather exchanges them for a more varied pallet of characters and loyalty.

The title sees the introduction of many new and fleshed out characters making for a far better storyline

Conclusion 8/10

Despite its range of flaws and missions errors, Assassins Creed Syndicate sees the debut of many new and often exciting features and gameplay options.

Not only does this introduce players to a never before seen world, but it also breathes a new life into this perishing franchise allowing for a fun play through for new players, and old ones alike.
