Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for PS4 is now available!

acs-gi-bg1-newThe latest release in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed Sydicate is now available on PS4, XBox One and on Nov 19th, PC.

I have played most of this series and have enjoyed them immensely. My favourite was number two, where as Ezio you ran around several cities in Italy but I will tell you more about that in a review another time. I am hoping that this new instalment, set in merry old England, will be just as good.

What’s it about?

The story is set in London in the year 1868. I’ve taken this from the official website – “The Industrial Revolution unleashes an incredible age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies once thought impossible. Opportunities created during this time period have people rushing to London to engage in this new world. A world no longer controlled by kings, emperors, politicians or religion, but by a new common denominator: money. 

However, not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of this boom. Despite fueling the engine of the British Empire, workers’ lives are little more than legalized slavery while the top few percent profit from their labor. Living poor and dying young, the lower class unite together in protest as a new kind of family – gangs – who turn to a life in the underworld in their struggle to survive. A struggle, until watchful Assassins come to their side and re-ignite an age-old conflict involving London’s leaders that will echo throughout modern history from the underground, up.

Introducing Assassin Jacob Frye, who with the help of his twin sister Evie, will change the fate of millions in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate. Rise to rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue and brutal combat.”

Sounds pretty good, I can’t wait to get my hands on the PS4 version and give it a go.

  1. aww man what a great idea. A video game review on some of your favorite games. To be honest that even cross my mind. Brilliant. One of my favorite games of all time would have to be for the PS3 and it is the zombie mode in the first Call of Duty Black Ops I still play that game to this day and so do other people online.

    1. Thanks Brandon. I have several PS3 games that I like to go back to and play again and again. Hope you will be back to see more of my reviews!

  2. Thanks for the Review Peter I’ve really enjoyed the AC series so far can’t wait for this one.

  3. I agree I am really looking forward to this new installment to the AC series. I am upset though that they basically force you to upgrade to a newer system to be able to play it. I can’t afford a new system and I have all the others for Xbox 360, guess I’ll have to get the PC version.

    1. I know what you mean Bobby. I have lots of old PC and PS1 games that I can no longer play on the newer systems. I’ve been looking for workarounds for the PC but they don’t always work. I bought the PS4 mainly to play the new Batman game and to be ready for Star Wars Battlefront.

  4. Sounds like it’s gonna be a similar feel to Dishonored. That industrial age vibe.
    I should really finish the first one, I bought 3 of them on Steam when they were cheap.

    1. Hi Andrew,
      Thanks for your comments, it does sound very industrial age doesn’t it. I would recommend finishing the ones you’ve got. The story does flow from one to the next although it’s not necessary to do that. I enjoyed the first ones more than some of the later ones. I will eventually get around to some reviews of the earlier games, so keep checking back.
      All the best

  5. The idea for your website seems really simple, but also really personal and nice. By reviewing strictly your favorite video games you instantly establish that a personality and feel to your website. I would recommend two things, though. One, it would really be nice if you could provide an actual rating to the game, like 4 out of 5 stars. And two, you can monetize your site by providing an amazon link to the game you are reviewing. Sign up with the Amazon Affiliates program and display the links on your posts. Anytime someone buys the game, you’ll get a cut.

    1. Thanks Caleb. I really appreciate the time you’ve taken to comment. On my review posts I do have a rating at the end based on my personal experience with the game. As I haven’t played this yet, I haven’t reviewed it or rated it. I do have the Amazon ads on and they appear to me when I view the pages on my site, did they not appear for you? Please let me know and I will look into it if they aren’t.

  6. Hey there!
    I have played every single game from the Assassin’s Creed series. I believe it’s the best series I have ever played really. The first and second part were really good. I enjoyed Altairs and Ezio’s story the most. The rest of them were a bit meh but still very enjoyable.
    I still have to try syndicate though. Hopefully it matches the quality of the first two.

    1. Thanks Dejan,

      I’ve really enjoyed the first two the most as well. Especially Ezio’s story. I’ve been playing Star Wars Battlefront a lot so haven’t gotten back to the Assassin’s Creed series. I really should do that. Glad you like the series too.

      All the best

      Peter
