It’s almost that time of the year, as the latest edition of Ubisoft’s popular Assassin’s Creed franchise is almost upon us. With the launch of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate set for October 23rd, the publisher has debuted one more trailer for the title.
Surprisingly, for a game set in London and featuring plenty of cockney gangsters, it’s a bit of a shock that Ubisoft hadn’t already used The Clash for a trailer. Perhaps they were waiting until the bitter end, though, to unleash a trailer set to the iconic “London Calling” by the influential punk band. Even ignoring the politically-charged lyrics, it only makes sense that the song and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate came together eventually.

Set during the Industrial Revolution in Victorian London, Syndicate centers on twin assassins, Jacob and Evie Frye. With the Assassin Brotherhood on the verge of extinction, the two must unite the underworld of London in order to overthrow the Templars, who currently rule the city. Unlike the previous series release, Unity, the title will not have any sort of multiplayer mode this go around. Hopefully, this means that the team at Ubisoft Quebec was able to fully polish the game before launch, lest we suffer another batch of release day woes.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this Friday.
