Assassin’s Creed Syndicate gameplay trailer shows off carriage jumping and train riding

Ubisoft has shown off an extended gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate during its E3 2015 press conference.

Ahead of the game’s October release date, the latest Assassin’s Creed Syndicate gameplay trailer really showcases the game’s location – Industrial Revolution London.

Set in London in 1868, Syndicate follows the story of twin assassins, Evie and Jacob Frye and their group, The Rooks.

The two assassins are fighting to take London out of the hands of the greedy and corrupt and back to its people.

Although the gameplay trailer doesn’t tell us much of the storyline, we were treated to an extended look at some of the new game mechanics.

These include horse and carriage action and even skulking along the tops of steam trains as they chug their way across England’s capital.

You also get a glimpse at the mechanical focus of the game, especially when it comes to the hidden blade of our new assassins.

Thank goodness the London accents weren’t too awful during the gameplay trailer, which you can view below.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is due to be released on October 23. It will launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
