Assassin's Creed: Syndicate hits this holiday, stars Jacob Frye

The next Assassin's Creed, set to be officially revealed next week by Ubisoft, will be called Assassin's Creed: Syndicate when it's released this holiday, according to marketing material obtained by Polygon.

The Syndicate name matches previous reports on Kotaku about the game.

The marketing material states that the game will "transport millions of gamers to an astonishing recreation of London during the Industrial Revolution where they will find themselves immersed in a game world they'll have to see to believe."


The game will star an assassin named Jacob Frye, according to the material. Those who pre-order the game at GameStop will receive an Assassin's Creed: Syndicate shilling necklace, meant to be a replica of the one worn by Frye in the game.

Ubisoft says it will officially reveal the new title on May 12 at 5 p.m. UK time (12 p.m. ET) during a livestream. Earlier this week, Ubisoft posted an animated teaser for the game on its UK site for the next Assassin's Creed game. The site included a reference to Jacob and the phrase "oppression has to end."

Today, the U.S. version of the official site showed brass knuckles on its front page with phrases like "God Save the Queen" and "Strength Through Loyalty" in wood behind the weapon. The word "Rooks" is featured about the brass knuckles with a picture of a bird carved next to it. In the background you can hear the sounds of a church bell ringing and people talking in what sounds to be a bar or pub.

You can see the teaser below for the UK site below.
