Ubisoft has released a new video tie-in online for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which happens to be a new animated short. The short was directed by renowned filmmaker F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and was illustrated by LucasFilm comic book artist Pop Mhan. The story takes viewers through the story of the Industrial Revolution in London in 1868 and the birth of organized crime, led by Assassin’s Creed Syndicate protagonist, Jacob Frye and his sister Evie. The short provides an overview and backdrop for the setting of the game. The sequence provides a quick and dirty look at the main characters and factions for the game.
You can check out the full animated short, Assassin’s Creed Presents: F. Gary Gray’s The Syndicate in the player below. Ubisoft will release Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on October 23 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A windows PC version will be released later in the fall. The new game will feature an open-world version of Victorian London, where players will take on an adventure with action, intrigue and brutal combat.
