Fans of "Assassin’s Creed Syndicate" are treated to two new TV trailers aimed at hyping up the game. With just a little over a week before the game launches, Ubisoft is looking to give fans more teasers on what to expect in its next stealth series.
The first trailer is a cinematic TV spot, which shows off a few fight scenes and the setting of story in London during the Industrial Revolution. It ends with a thrilling message and objective for fans, which is to take back London into their own hands.
However, Gamingbolt pointed out one issue with the trailer. As much as the scenes showed a couple of action sequences and even a few of the weapons involved, it missed out on one thing: Evie. The twin sister of protagonist Jacob Frye is also a playable character and a deuteragonist in "Assassins Creed Syndicate."
As revealed earlier by the developer, Jacob’s role is more of an aggressive head-on character, while Evie represents a more stealth and calculated approach to completing missions. This will supposedly offer two ways for the players to take on enemies in "Assassin’s Creed Syndicate."
Whether or not Ubisoft plans to release another trailer starring Evie remains to be seen. The second trailer, seen below, is longer and more informative. It shows the historical characters that players can encounter in the game. Some of them include Alexander Graham Bell, Karl Marx, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, Queen Victoria and Charles Dickens.
A noticeable thing here is that Evie does appear in this trailer and plays a major role. The trailer invites players to discover the secrets of the era and the characters. The richness of the setting appears to be one of the main goals of the developer, as the team recently revealed that they considered the setting to be one of the main characters in the game.
"We want to make London feel like a very contrasted city, so when you move around it you feel the difference," said Game Director Scott Phillips to TechRadar.
The overall goal was to have a fluid experience and a detailed setting that is more than just a backdrop. And the result can be seen in the trailers, which have so far shown a city that needs to be reassessed and retaken, while also showing the heydays of early London.
"Assassin’s Creed Syndicate" will be out on Oct. 23 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Preorders of the game will entitle players to bonus mission involving Dickens and Darwin.
