May 12th was a big day for Ubisoft. The company officially peeled back the curtain to unveil a plethora of details on the newest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and announced that the new game will not be coming to Xbox 360 or PS3.
Assassin’s Creed:Syndicate, which follows last year’s Assassin’s Creed:Unity, will release on October 23, 2015 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the next entry will feature two playable characters, twin siblings Jacob and Evie Frye. The game is set in London during the Industrial Revolution and features recognizable historical figures such as, Charles Darwin and author Charles Dickens, who will likely act as mentors to the protagonists.
Syndicate also marks the first time in the main series that a female assassin will be playable. The game allows players to switch between the twin brother and sister at any time to explore the sprawling city of London. However, control will be diverted to a specific protagonist during story based missions.
Ubisoft stated that they will reveal more details about Assassin’s Creed:Syndicate at E3.
