Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the newest game in the franchise. This has been touted to be one of the best Assassin’s Creed titles in recent years. This is a marked improvement over the devastatingly lackluster reception of Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is also centered on both the Assassin’s and Templar’s faction; with the former being the protagonists and the latter as the antagonists.

The story has both the future and past worlds present in the story. The story mainly revolves around the Frye twins, Evie and Jacob Frye.

In the year 1868, Jayadeep Mir, an assassin, wrote to the assassin brotherhood to seek for help. He explained in the letter that he sent that the assassin brotherhood in London was shattered by the Templars in the city.

Jacob and Evie’s original mission was to do something away from London, but they disobeyed orders to survey London’s assassin brotherhood.

Upon their arrival in London, the twins met up with Henry Green, who happens to be a helpful acquaintance to their father.

Both of them have differing ideologies on what they should do to retake London; with Jacob wanting to take the fight against the Templars head on while Evie wants to take the piece of Eden, a valuable artifact in the game, first.

During the course of the game, the Frye twins manage to create their own syndicate called the “Rooks” and they also sought the aid of some historical figures such as Frederick Abberline, Alexander Graham Bell, Charles Dickens, Edward Hodson Bayley, Florence Nightingale, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The story then shifts to Crawford Starrick and the Shroud of Eden. Apparently, the Shroud of Eden holds untold powers and Starrick wants it so badly so that he can reinforce his Iron hand in London.

Jacob, Evie, and Henry sought the aid of Duleep Singh to find the schematics of the Buckingham palace as the Shroud of Eden is believed to be hidden under it. Unfortunately, the Templars got a hold of the schematic first.

Starrick indeed got a hold of the Shroud of Eden, granting him superhuman powers and incredible regeneration abilities. But, with the efforts of the twins, they were able to defeat Starrick for good.

All three of them, Jacob, Evie, and Herny, were knighted by the queen due to their valiant efforts off defeating one of the Templar’s high commanders.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an action/adventure game that sports the same gameplay mechanics found in previous installments.

The game is set in an open world of London and players have the chance to roam the place freely and explore what London has to offer.

In the game, you can either walk by foot or you can also use a carriage for faster transportation as well.

Along with the main storyline, players can do side quests as well. After the main game, there were DLCs released that continues on the game’s storyline. These DLCs contain the “Dreadful Crimes”, the “Last Maharaja”, and the ever-popular “Jack the Ripper”.

The Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is one of the most successful titles in the franchise. If you want to play as an assassin, the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate does not disappoint.
