'Assassin's Creed Syndicate' (ALL) Playtest Road Show Going To Comic-Con

by Rainier on July 6, 2015 @ 9:18 p.m. PDT

Join gangster assassin Jacob Frye as he races through the streets of London in the midst of the Industrial Revolution to take down rival street gangs and bring justice to a city choked by corruption and greed.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an epic single player experience set in London during the height of the Industrial Revolution, an incredible age of invention that transforms the lives of millions. During this time, the gap between the poor and the rich expands exponentially, making workers’ lives little more than legalized slavery. The lower classes fight for survival by forming a new kind of family – gangs -- and adapting to a life in the underworld.

Players will embody both Jacob Frye and Evie Frye, twin Assassins raised to follow the Creed. Jacob, a determined, hot-headed and rebellious leader of an underground gang, is vastly different than his sister Evie, a master of stealth and control. Together, Jacob and Evie team up to challenge rivals, plutocrats and Templars alike to free the masses from poverty and corruption, and ultimately wrestle back control of London.

In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, players explore the largest, most modern open-world city yet in an Assassin’s Creed game. The fighting is more brutal than ever, as players combat rival gangs and grow their sphere of influence throughout London using new weapons, including brass knuckles, a kukri knife, a revolver and the Assassin’s gauntlet. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate also includes innovative navigation and transportation throughout the open world, including a rope launcher for scaling tall Victorian buildings, zip-lining from rooftop to rooftop or performing aerial assassinations, and horse-drawn carriages and high-speed trains for free-running, tracking down enemies or escaping after daring raids.

Assassin’s Creed players are invited to participate in the first-ever Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Playtest Road Show with the next stop coinciding with Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Participants will get exclusive hands-on time with the game and share detailed feedback directly with the development team to make an impact on the final game when it releases. They’ll also get the opportunity to see the development process firsthand while experiencing Master Assassins Jacob and Evie Frye’s fight for London.

Fans in the San Diego area on July 11 can apply to participate by sending an email with the following information: name, age, and a brief summary of their experience playing Assassin’s Creed games (100 words or less).  Participants must be experienced Assassin’s Creed players and 17 years of age or older, as of July 9. Once selected, participants will be given an appointment time. Please note: transportation will not be provided to the event and participation will be subject to availability and verification of eligibility.

Key Features:

  • As the brash, rebellious Jacob Frye, put up your dukes and take enemies on with lightning-fast multikills and counter moves. Use improved stealth tactics to elude your enemies and unleash your arsenal of weapons, including the kukri knife, brass knuckles, and sword cane. Utilize new technology like the rope launcher to scale buildings in seconds and take your enemies by surprise.
  • From Buckingham Palace to Big Ben, fight and triumph across the massive open world of Victorian London. Parkour across moving vehicles to track down enemies or escape after a daring raid, hijack carriages to engage in a no-holds-barred street race, or blaze a trail of destruction aboard steamboats along the River Thames.  
  • With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the elite and defeat rival gangs to bring freedom to the oppressed masses. Enemy strongholds can be infiltrated by using an arsenal of weapons to dominate London’s underworld. From robbing trains to rescuing child laborers, players will stop at nothing to bring justice to London’s dangerous streets.   
  • Play as Jacob’s twin sister Evie, a relentless Assassin who has perfected the silent, swift, invisible strike. Parkour across London’s immense open world using your status in London’s leading gang to change the city for the better.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate will be available worldwide on October 23 for PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version to follow Fall 2015.
