Ubisoft took a video of an eagle flying around London to promote Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. This is the newest game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and focuses on London during the Industrial Revolution. The main characters in the new game are Jacob Frye and his twin sister Evie Frye.
In the video you can see an eagle flying around London with a camera strapped to it. The London scenery is occasionally peeled away to compare it to in game footage from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. As usual, the architecture and look is pretty spot on for the Ubisoft game. The video was an ambitious project by Ubisoft, and was to promote “eagle vision” in the new game.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in London in 1868. The Industrial Revolution is pushing the boundaries of what was once possible with a new emergence of technology, and this has brought countless opportunities to transform people’s lives and make them rich. However, as London is flooded with people hoping to catch a piece of the boon to the industry, only a top few really profit from it. Workers lives are reduced to being slaves in almost every way but name, and they unite through various gangs to try and make a better life than working to death in the factories. Then, the assassins emerge in London and “re-ignite and age-old conflict,” that is poised to topple the leaders in London. As an assassin you work to unite the underworld of London and topple the corrupt leaders of London.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be released October 23rd on Xbox One and Playstation 4. The game will also release on PC, but not until November 19th. This is the newest in a very long line of Assassin’s Creed games, and it doesn’t look like they’ll stop making trips to the Animus any time soon. So, are you excited about the newest Assassin’s Creed game?
