London, 1868. The Industrial Revolution unleashed an incredible golden age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies previously thought impossible.
The people converge on London in order to take advantage of the opportunities offered by this new world. A world that is no longer controlled by kings, emperors, politicians or religion, but by a new common denominator: money.
However, not everyone benefits from the benefits that these upheavals offer. Even if the engine of the British Empire runs on the strength of the workers, the latter are ultimately no more than slaves paid a pittance while the haves get rich from their work.
Living poor and dying young, the working class then unites in a new kind of family - gangs - turning to crime in their struggle to survive.
A desperate struggle, until the Assassins join them and rekindle an age-old conflict involving the rulers of London that will reverberate through history, from the underworld to the highest echelons of society.
Discover for the first time the Assassin Jacob Frye who, with the help of his twin sister Evie, will change the fate of millions of people in Assassin's Creed Syndicate.
Rise up, rally the gangs to your cause and lead them to end the corruption that plagues London in an exhilarating adventure of action, suspense and brutal combat.
