Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was announced and will be coming out this fall. The setting this time is in London during the industrial Revolution. I love the industrial Revolution era, so i might actually get this one… on sale.
“Actually, the reliance on your fists is one of the more prominent changes to Syndicate’s combat. This being 19th-century London, people don’t walk around with swords attached to their hip, unless they want to get arrested. As a result there’s a renewed focus on hand-to-hand combat, with one of Jacob’s main weapons being a set of brass knuckles. The fighting feels a bit more brutal, weightier, with the environment being used to cave in heads. There are more traditional weapons, but there’s a big emphasis on them being concealed. Jacob’s blade is a short, curved Kukri knife, along with a six-chamber revolver. It’s the most advanced weapon an Assassin has ever had, but from watching a 15-minute demo it feels like these weapons function more like flourishes and finishers, preventing Jacob from being grossly overpowered.”
