The new Assassin’s Creed will take place in 1868, London, where there will be two protagonist; Jacob Frye and Evie Frye.
London. 1868. The Industrial Revolution. An age of invention and prosperity, built on the backs of working class slaves. As gangster assassin Jacob Frye, you will recruit your gang to fight for justice on behalf of the oppressed working class. Lead the underworld to take back London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue and brutal combat.
A new mechanic to the game is the Rope Launcher, pretty much self explanatory. In your arsenal, you will have your trusty hidden blade and throwing knife. In this new Assassin’s Creed, you will be able to use the environment to your advantage i.e, falling objects. There also seems to be the use of chemical weaponry apparent in this new Assassins Creed. New transportation methods consist of the Carriage and Trains.
