In an interview with Francois Pelland, executive director of development & senior producer of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the newest AC is revealed as a period piece previewing the beauty that was Victorian England. An era that was all about development and the true origin of a modern lifestyle similar to what we live today (just with more bad ass Top Hats). The industrial revolution allowed for the world to be focused less on expanding outwards and in stead settled on going in a more vertical direction. However no need to worry, the game still boasts to be the largest world of any AC game so far. With the new rope launcher, climbing walls becomes a thing of the past as we propel ourselves up and over anything that stands in our way.
