“Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate” is one of the more anticipated games of the year and now that it's coming next month, publisher Ubisoft has unveiled the game’s story trailer. While the setting of early Victorian London is new, the concept is similar to the older games, with Assassins taking on Templars in a new setting with both new weapons and old weapons at the player’s disposal.

These Templars are more like gangsters from the older eras of London and the style of the trailer is similar to a heist films, like “Ocean’s Eleven” or “Mission Impossible.” There are seven “Templars” to take out and their leader is named Maxwell Roth, who must be stopped in order to end the oppression of London, but not without blood of course.

The trailer also shows the Frye twins – Jacob and Evie, bantering with each other, while also being determined enough to stop the actions of these Templars. It’s a good thing the twins are equipped with a variety of weapons like brass knucles, kukri knife, and a sword cane, Coming Soon reports.

As the video goes on, players are able to see a number of significant events that will happen in the game, including a rebellion against the Templars and a seemingly epic train chase. The big stunts mixed with the banter gives the trailer a very action movie-style feel to it, which is hardly a bad thing.

Bleeding Cool states that “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate” looks very promising, especially after the messy debut of “Assassin’s Creed: Unity” in 2014. The numerous bugs did the game no favors and it may have been rushed out the door to reach its deadline. Eventually, Ubisoft released a 4GB patch to deal with the game’s issues, but the damage was done.

It seems like the developers have learned from their mistake and it looks like “Syndicate” will turn out fine, though it could also be more of the same. Fans will find out when the game hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Oct. 23. Those who pre-order the game can gain access to the season pass, which gives players extra missions like taking on legendary killer Jack the Ripper, among others.
