Nostalgic News: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate released 5 years ago


Released five years ago, and marking the ninth major instalment in the series, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate follows British twins Evie and Jacob Frye as they remove the Templar influences throughout Victorian London. The title itself was the first game of the franchise that I fell in love with and is still my favourite game to just waste time walking around.

Syndicate itself was far more well-received than its predecessor Assassin’s Creed Unity which was released the year before, and while being one of the quicker main games to complete in the franchise, it also holds more one of the most light-hearted endings (if one excludes the Jack The Ripper themed DLC), as well as the first to hold two playable protagonists who can be switched between at any point outside of missions.

The game itself introduced the first queer playable character in the franchise; Jacob (Paul Amos) was later revealed to be Bisexual following a discussion on Tumblr, though it is not represented within the game itself.
