UK Game Releases This Week: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate sneaks onto PS4, Xbox One and PC.

This week will see the beating of geezers in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, some fabulous crossdressing in Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and the unleashing of your inner rockstar in Guitar Hero Live.

Guitar Hero Live  (PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U)

Are you ready to rock out with plastic instruments like it’s 2007? If so then you might want to pick up Guitar Hero Live this week. This new installment aims to reinvent the series with a revamped guitar controller that boasts a new, six button layout. You will play in front of real crowds who dynamically react to each of your performances. Guitar Hero Live will feature hundreds of playable songs at launch, with more to be added in the future as DLC.


Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

It was only only matter of time until Ubisoft brought its open world franchise to the streets of London, and that time has finally come. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate follows Jacob and Evie Frye, sibling assassins who aim to take back London from Templar control and its corrupt criminal underworld. We’re hoping for fish and chips, cockney accents and far less bugs than AC: Unity.
