Above is the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate twin launch trailer for Evie Frye. It’s got everything you’d expect from an Assassin’s Creed trailer – sneaking, fighting, moody monologue, evil Templars, crouching on the top of tall buildings then swan-diving off them – with the added spice of Evie’s twin, Jacob, rocking up and giving her a hand mid-combat.
There’s also an Assassin’s Creed Syndicate twin launch trailer for Jacob Frye:
Now, if you’ve just watched both the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate twin launch trailers through, you’ll have noticed they’re largely the same. Who am I kidding? It’s exactly the bloody same! There are a few sequences altered, and it’s Evie who comes to Jacob’s aid, but there’s a minute and a half of your life you’re not going to get back again.
We think it’s to illustrate the GTA V style approach to split characters, that allows you to play through the open-world sections as either protagonist – and switch between them at will – before being funnelled through main quest sections as the appropriate character for that moment in time. We’ll see how well that pans out tomorrow.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is out tomorrow! Why not order it now from Amazon?
