Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Announced Confirming London Setting

Well, here we go again.

Assassin's Creed is coming back around for its yearly release, and as we knew already, the game is set in Victorian London. 1868 specifically. The game is now confirmed with the pre-reported name change from Victory to Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.

Ubisoft have confirmed that Jacob Frye is the main Assassin and that he's on a quest for the poor to beat the rich for not so clear reasons. It seems organised crime is going to have a key part to play as Assassin Gangs get into street brawls with Templar's.

Check out a trailer here:

And here is some gameplay:

The city on display here looks gorgeous, which shouldn't be a huge surprise. The recreation of a Revolution torn Paris last year was one of the very best things about Assassin's Creed: Unity.

I'm excited enough by this I have to say. Bring on E3 where we will obviously get a bigger glimpse at the title.

The game launches October 23rd on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
