Ubisoft has released the official announcement trailer for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, providing the first-look at the game's setting and new hero, as well as a quick overview of the story.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate is set in 1868 London during the height of the industrial revolution. The game stars two protagonists, a brother and sister duo named Jacob and Evie Frye, who have been raised as assassins.

Jacob and Evie arrive in London at the start of the game and begin a campaign to subvert the social and power dynamics of the city, while rallying the criminal element to unite against The Templars.

Ubisoft has also released a new trailer focusing entirely on Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Jacob Frye, who is characterised as a charismatic hero that never passes up an opportunity for a quick brawl. The trailer shows off some of the weapons that will be available to Jacob, including knuckledusters, a revolver, and a Kukri knife.

On top of Assassin's Creed Syndicate's overhauls to combat and stealth, the game will also introduce vehicle jacking. Players will be able to drive carriages and use them as moving platforms. Read our full story to find out more about Assassin's Creed Syndicate's GTA-style vehicle mechanics.
