Man Builds Functional Assassin's Creed Blade and Rope-Launcher Tool
This is super cool.
Timed with the launch of Assassin's Creed Syndicate comes an awesome video showing off a real-world Assassin's Creed hidden blade and rope-shooter tool. The equipment, which totally works but is a little less glamorous, comes from YouTube's colinfurze (via Gizmodo). Check it out in the video below.
The rope-launcher is powered by CO2 and works basically as it does in the game: point and shoot. Once the grapple catches on to a surface, connect a harness system and pull yourself up. It's not as fast and effective as it is in the game, but pretty cool all the same.
As for the blade, it's retractable just like the game and looks quite deadly. Watch the video to see colinefurze slash up various objects and items with ease.
Syndicate launched on October 23, receiving a 9/10 score from GameSpot. For more on the game's critical reception, check out this review roundup. The game is available today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, while the PC edition is set to launch in November.
