Brock Lesnar Shows Up in Assassin's Creed Syndicate

For some reason.

Professional wrestler Brock Lesnar has made his way into Assassin's Creed Syndicate. Concept art for Syndicate released this week reveals a character who bears a strong resemblance to the muscular man.

As discovered by people on Reddit and Kotaku, the character's general physique and back tattoo are a perfect match for Lesnar. What's more, he appears to be fighting two-time UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

So what's going on here?

It's possible Ubisoft used Lesnar and Mir as reference points. After all, this is concept art and there is no indication that these characters will be in the game itself when it arrives this fall. Or perhaps Lesnar and Mir are in the game as easter eggs; but if that is the case, Lesnar and Mir would probably have to agree to lend their likenesses to the game.

We've followed up with Ubisoft, asking for more information about this strange situation.

The Syndicate release date is set for October 23 across Xbox One and PlayStation 4, while the PC edition is slated for a general "fall" release. The game will not be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Ubisoft has confirmed.
