They are learning from earlier mistakes. putting a pre-teaser to create buzz rather than knee-jerk releasing a trailer after a leak.

So Jacob...not an Assassin-y name. Its not a homonym for Eagle or other birds, which makes it closer to Connor and Edward (so Yay).

Its hebrew for "He usurps". and maybe we have a British Jewish Assassin? Which might fight the "fight oprresion" theeme.

How do you explain all the bird-brained names like Ezio, Haytham (granted a Templar but his Assassin Daddy wanted him to be the Golden Boy for the Brotherhood), Arno (an old word for Eagle, though the French variation should be Arnaud but Ubisoft's gutless marketting didn't want him to be too French). Likewise Aveline and Shay both having bird themes.

The bird name "Rooks" is carved into the table, mybe that will relate to the hero somehow.

Exactly my point. Which means he could be an outsider, a minority like Connor.

I wondered about Rooks myself. Yes it refers to a bird, but it could also refer to the "Rookery", the slums of London in which poor people lived. Of course, you know a name like Jacob can often be shortened to Jack...

personally if it turns out our hero is a slum-dwelling, knuckle busting low class lout, I would be happy. I absolutely despise Victorian Gentleman fantasies.

"Blessings be upon us, our son is born! Now, what eagle-related name should we give him?"

It's common when parents are Assassins. Like Giovanni named his boy Ezio (a really unusual Italian name), Edward named his kid Haytham, Charles Dorian named his kid Arno. From Revelations canon, we have Umar naming his boy Altair. Shay Cormac has a name meaning "Hawk Raven" in Gaelic, just to make him bird-like. Assassins assocaite themselves with "birds"(flight, freedom).

Connor and Edward have been the only real exceptions so far. The only bird thing they have in common is their ships. The Aquila ("The Eagle") and the Jackdaw. They sure worked that well into the lore.

Jacob is a very potent name, it comes from one of the key prophets of the Bible. In Genesis, Jacob wrestled for three days and nights with an Angel (or God himself) which probably foreshadows the increased hand combat in the game. And of course, after fighting the Angel, God bestowed on Jacob and his people the name Israel which means "He who fights God", which is a nice First-Civ/Creed connection. I think it would be nice for him to be a Jewish Assassin.

As for Syndicate...I am guessing a Victorian Underworld vibe here. Really seedy, grimy setting. We hear rains, serious intensity. I am sensing more FROM HELL than OLIVER! the Musical

Sounds like Interactive Taverns could be making a return. I heard rowdy chatter, bottles being opened and a fun piano in the background. The creaking of floorboards and wood led me to believe they were on a ship at first. But seems unlikely given the presence of the trains and big ben.

Taverns were replaced by Pubs at the time. It was far more rowdier, especially in slum areas and the East End then what we would have seen in the Caribbean. I can imagine an Assassin's Creed headquarters like the Hound Pits Pub in Dishonored and a hommage to the opening of Uncharted 3.

Well, I feel that Victory sounds a bit misleading. It would be called "Victory" over what exactly? Did the Templars and Assassins have an epic showdown and one faction ended up victorious? It could mean a lot of things. Syndicate sounds more like a secret, sinister organisation to me and I think it sounds better.

I am aware of the reason for the reason for the eagle names but it doesn't make it less cheesy. Even the names that don't reference birds tend have some kind of animal connection, like Otso Berg (lit. "Bear Mountain") and Connor "lover of hounds").

Well Jacob means "he usurps", it refers to the fact that he pulled a major d--k move as a kid. His dad was handing out blessings, Jacob was the younger kid but he tricked his Dad (who was blind) into thinking he was the older kid and so usurped his elder brother to get his father's blessings instead. That's a classic Assassin move there, sneaky, stealthy and sly and very much "Nothing is true everything is permitted".


I am aware of the reason for the reason for the eagle names but it doesn't make it less cheesy. Even the names that don't reference birds tend have some kind of animal connection, like Otso Berg (lit. "Bear Mountain") and Connor "lover of hounds").

Well historically a lot of names derive from animals and places, occupations. And Connor is one of those names that are not too unusual. His Mohawk name Ratohnhake;ton means "Life that is scratched" apparently.


"Assassin's Creed: Syndicate" sounds friggin' awful.

BTW, the outfit is still ridiculous. Eagle-shaped knuckle brass, really?

On this we agree perfectly. But you Assassins are very particular about their branding.

They are all about flaunting their stealth in the faces of society and the Templars, "that's right i can blend in carrying all these obvious weapons and visible outfit and you can't do jack sh-t about it. Die Motherf--ker."


Victory was a cool name IMO, but Syndicate sounds darker and fits the theme better. It sorta refers to the multiplayer/coop aspect the way the name Unity did too.


Well when UNITY came out, the promotion implied that the Assassins and Templars would team up. The Co-Op stuff wasn't really what people had in mind.

Awesome! Some thoughts...

That is a hidden gun on his wrist, not a grappling hook so thats cool that they are bringing a wrist gun back to the series.

I reckon the cane has a sword in it - that is his unique weapon, just like Connors tomahawk

I much prefer Victory over Syndicate.

Knuckle dusters show that fist fighting will be more brutal in this game.

The cane has a very "sherlock holmes" feel to it. I am guessing murder mysteries will play a very big role in the game.

The music, and the black and gold theme show that this is going to be a dark game - hopefully like AC 1.

"Oppression must end" should basically be the slogan of every single AC game.

AC4's s weather effects were awesome, but urban London won't be as good a place to show them off as the open seas/jungles.

Completely agree. The Unity weather was poor. I'd like to see weather like the rain in Shadow of Mordor. Reflective surfaces, puddles, individual rain drops and wet clothing. It looked fantastic. Infamous SS also did a great job.

Also, if they gave us Christmas day with thick snow, icy rooftops and festive decorations, I would be so happy. It doesn't even need to be an open world thing, just one linear level set on Christmas and my life would be complete.

If they have learnt from their mistakes on Unity..and developed the mechanics they introduced (stealth mode, blackbox missions, customization), whilst retaining the good elements of the game(parkour down, interiors, more stealth, harder combat) and give us a good story they may be onto something very special.

I must say, I'm not a fan of the one glove thing, it just looks odd. I'm loving the cane though. I hope we can just walk around with it as normal as well as using it as a weapon.

I'm really hoping this game has really dark nights with bright street lights and stuff; night in AC Unity was way too light. Oh and really good rain like AC4, the rain in Unity was barely even noticeable (I won't talk too much on that since you guys have already mentioned it).

I'm preferring the name Samuel to Jacob, and the name Victory to Syndicate, but I guess it's not too big a deal.

Overall, I'm hyped, I'm really excited for this game :D

That "dark" feeling that dead kings gave you? the physics in dead kings were much better than Unitys. It was awesome.

Surely the protagonist won't be going up against Queen Victoria... she was partly responsible for the industrialisation of England and its expansion on a global scale.

When it says "oppression has to end" is it saying the Assassin is going up against the Queen, or are they going up against the oppressors of the Queen?

Edit: Just saw it says "God save the Queen" so we will be on her side I am guessing.

From Kotaku, I read something that "Victory" is changed to "Syndicate".

So based from the word syndicate the game might take place in the Victorian underworld,
so maybe the protagonist Jacob is a former criminal??

Well a Rookery refers to slums and so Rooks are those who live in the slums, which also contain criminals and prostitutes, which were very present in Victorian London. I don't think we would oppress the Queen to be honest, his knuckle duster also says "strength through loyalty."

Also it says "we forge the chains we wear in life" which is a quote from Charles Dckens

I reckon the Rooks are going up against the Queen (thats why its crossed out) and we are trying to save her.

I think they would contrast it from Unity. For example in Unity we were going up against the monarchy, but for this game I reckon we are trying to save it.

05-07-2015, 10:59 PM
Wooooooooooot!!!

Finally some news on Victory or Syndicate. I liked Victory, but I'm not opposed to the title Syndicate so it doesn't matter.

Most of you are saying you're not hyped but I was when I saw the gif of Jacob ( I guess). Urban Dictionary says "hyped" is to be extremely excited, and that's what I was. I was secretly hoping we'd get Victory news on my birthday, so that's part of why I'm so happy. It's still 7 1/2 more hours until my b-day, but it's already May 8th for some of you. The same thing happened last year, we got news on Sunset Overdrive the first time ever, on my birthday, which turned out to be my GOTY.

This little teaser reveal appeals to me in a number of ways. First, the theme seems to be black and gold which go great together (and gold is my favorite color, which has been lacking in AC except for the Jackdaw in AC IV and the Topeka Gold dye in ACRe). The Assassin Insignia is gold in one of the screens as well which is really cool. To top it off, there are plenty of gold accents just on the guy's two arms from his cane, his gauntlet, and in the IGN screen even his brass knuckles. I look forward to some more gold accents on the main clothes as well. This is kind of a specific reason to get excited, but I think we all have those moments where a game seems catered just to you.

Next, his awesome gear. I'll start with the cane. I really like the design of it, and it's very assassin-y and custom as you can see the gold eagle head (most canes with eagle heads these days are for US veterans), and the Assassin insignia on the gold band below his hand. The cane was an obvious choice for a weapon set in this era, and I look forward to using it.

There looks to be two different brass knuckles shown so far: the silver one in his hand, and the gold one in the IGN image. This is another weapon I thought would be included. On the gold one, you can see the Assassin insignia, with a gear (Industrial Revolution), crown (English Monarchy), train, and a horse and buggy in a symmetrical pattern on the weapon.

Lastly is the new hidden blade gauntlet. Honestly, it's my favorite one yet. This guy's entire arsenal so far seems to the most advanced yet, and it should be as this is the latest time period so far. I'm a technophile, and this little gauntlet really appeals to me. The semi-brass knuckles on his glove are pretty cool, and look useful for fist fighting. I assume the ranged attachment is some sort of gun and not a grappling hook deployer as there is soot below the muzzle (unless the grappling hook is propelled by gunpowder?).The rest of the metal and leather just help to complement the entire ensemble.

As I said before, this is already my favorite premise for an AC game so far, and these images fortify my position. I'm eagerly awaiting May 12th. :D

I actually really want this. Like, so much. Wanted this since I first played AC. Just those little touches that could be awesome. Like if the roof tiles shifted or broke after a rough landing, causing you to slip a little.

They're actually on to something with that.

In Unity, when Arno makes an outrageous leap from one building to another, he realistically stumbles on his footing.

If they take that and expand upon that in with other things like wet roofs then we've got it. :')

I expect now the theorized Japan game next year to be called:

Assassin's Creed Yakuza

or maybe

Assassin's Creed Kabukimono
(based on this fools (http://wiki.samurai-archives.com/index.php?title=Kabukimono), an Assassin would blend perfectly among them)


And an AC in India must be:

Assassin's Creed Thuggees

You can actually negate that stumble by double-tapping O (after you buy the skill)

My personal prediction is that this guy is upper class and is protecting the monarchy from the syndicates - i.e the Rooks who are oppresing Queen Victoria.

Also, the cane was used by "gentleman".

For me, it worked the first time and here's what it says "You're signed up. Be on the lookout for your reminder email and fan pack on May 12th."

Nothing about him strikes me as lower class. I'd say he's also defending the workers in the factories from the factory owners, hence the "oppression", because that was a common issue at the time.

I don't understand why people are getting worked up over the title. It really doesn't matter at all, the game isn't going to be any different whether its called Victory or Syndicate. The game could be called Assassins's Creed: Poop and it would still be exactly the same. Its Ubisoft who need to worry about this kinda stuff, not us :P

Anyway, Im interested in knowing what we are actually gonna see in the stream. Cinematic trailer or a gameplay demo? Or is it just gonna be the Developers sitting down and chatting about it? How long is it gonna be? SO many questions

Yeah the title means absolutely nothing in terms of how good the game is, but for one I thought Victory was an awesome title due to the tie in with the Victorian era.

In terms of the stream, I reckon we will get a 1 minute teaser, kind of like the first Unity teaser of Arno standing on the roof over looking the guillotine. There may be the developers telling us where the game is set, what the story will be based around etc but I highly doubt we will get gameplay before E3.

I see no reason why the Queen needs to be included in the first place, she was a constitutional monarch, a symbolic head of state, her power was super limited, if you want to include some political power the prime minister is what you want.

But the government doesn't need to be involved.


Depending of the time period there's three Kings we could Assassinate.

George III, famous for being the King at the time of the American Revolution, died in 1820

George IV, died in 1830

William IV, died in 1837

Infiltrating the Windsor Castle to kill a King would be a pretty cool mission.

Gosh darnit. You are probably right. Raw Gameplay is never released until E3. I guess I'd be happy with a full size view of our new protagonist, and a good look at London in-game. And you can bet that they will leave us a quick teaser at the end.

Yes her political power was very limited, but she did establish the modern role of the monarch in Britain. She was still super important in terms of influencing reforms and promoting expansion. Politically she did very little due to being a constitutional monarch, but she was socially and culturally influential in Britain.

We aren't going to get a full demo or anything, but they could very well put out a gameplay trailer. They did with AC4, and similarly to that year, they're in full damage-control mode right now.

Yass. The first mission/sequence could be Jacob as a youngish guy who assassinates William IV, then skip forward 20 or so years when he's older and wiser for the bulk of the game, maybe with kids of his own.

From what I can guess based on the teaser pic is;

PS:
All these are just speculations and guesses so I might be wrong or right about my theories(Obviously :p)

* The thing on top of the Hidden blade is either a mini pistol or a sort of gun that shoots out the grappling hook
(It do look to small for being a grappling hook gun though imo)
* The three metal lines on the side of the hidden blade maybe is used to deflect enemy weapons
(and fists)
* The gold knuckles might confirm AC: Syndicate is more hand to hand based combat than before
(Maybe Jacob is also fighting with his hidden blade as well??)
* The cane is either a secret slim long sword, a short sword or just a cool cane :cool:

I'm excited for the trailer on Tuesday next week and I hope it's longer than Unitys first teaser which was barely a minute long.
A teaser trailer like Black Flags but in in-game graphics and not in CGI would be a great teaser to ease my hunger before E3

And there I officially wrote my 200th comment;)

There were many failed assassination attempts on Victoria, so we could be involved in preventing those attacks during the events of Syndicate.

Unity was good, but fighting one guy at a time is annoying, not to mention Arno didn't really have sick moves like in previous AC games. Remember cutting 2 enemies throats at the same time?? Sticking one enemies sword into another as he's swinging it at you... the good old Ezio days lol

But seriously I'm happy that everyone else is, but as for me.....

I was going to ignore it and move on with my life.

But then I noticed a cane.

Beating people to death with cane 10/10 game so I had to post.

Being real though, I'm not going to buy the game regardless. I already returned my copy of Unity. And due to the unfair price balance of the DLC for season pass owners, I skipped out on playing Chronicles China and wont bother with the rest.

I'll 200% for sure will only be watching a cutscene movie of this game and have no intentions of playing it. The lore intrigues me enough to watch it and given that Ubisoft has a new system for writing quality control now, it may be miles better than Unity's story.

that's all I have to say on the matter. good luck to the developers. I've been extremely busy (new job and academics) and have temporarily shifted to the fnaf fandom until AC franchise fully recovers in quality.

and maybe -just maybe- if the game turns out to be great in terms of gameplay (black flag level great) i'll pick it up

"Blessings be upon us, our son is born! Now, what eagle-related name should we give him?"

Desmond...


You can hear people talking and train sounds in the background on the site, plus the sound of Big Ben (yes I know it's the bell not the tower, but still, we call it big ben anyway)

Since it's the bell--not the tower--that makes the sound, your original statement is perfectly correct.


Or maybe its Jamie Lannister's hand!!

The hand of the king?


Kinda like the name "Assassin's Creed: Syndicate", although I am gonna miss Victory lol. Hopefully that will be the name of the book after it appeared on Amazon UK not long ago, but doubt it

I'm not impressed with "Syndicate;" doesn't really roll off the tongue. But I'll probably still play it.


That gauntlet looks like he borrowed it from Batman. That huge fist with metallic knuckles, a visible appendage...no way is that discreet...anyway.

Maybe he has discreet street clothes for his day job and only exposes his appendage when he's on official Assassin business.


I hope there's a football mini game.

Why would there be a football...oh you mean soccer. :p

I wish you well with your job and studies! I haven't decided yet if I'm skipping this year, but my own situation may require me to wait for a while before picking it up regardless. I've actually cooled on black flag and found more merit in Unity than I did at first. I'm not quite so sure I know what I want out of these games. It's clear that microtransactions were a real bad misstep that had negative ripples across both black flag and Unity, and I doubt those will completely go away. So I'm going to be very cautious.

We can see more things.
-The eagle-headed cane sword on the right hand (=right handed sword fighter and left handed blade user like all AC games). Also the cane sword being concealed means they're (devs) targeting on social stealth (along with the disguise stuff from Kotaku leak back in January)

-Samuel Fey (Let's just call him that for now...) weilds A SINGLE HIDDEN BLADE like Arno or Altair on the left hand.

-On the left wrist you can see that... thing (shoots poison darts?).

-Fighting will also include the use of fists (Metal plates over finger bones on the left hand and brass knuckles on the right hand) Also proves that the assassin doesn't rely too much on brute force (I could be wrong).

-Also there are metal strips on the SIDE of the left hand. Meaning: You'll block incoming attacks with the left hand and fight with the right hand sword and most probably use the hidden blade with the sword during fighting) (For some strange reason these remind me of Batman Arkham games....)

-The official assassin insignia is slightly different from the previous 'victory insignia'.

-Graphics: Notice how realistically the water drips down the hidden blade and also from the eagle beak-tip of the cane? Also the reflections and the close up details look really better than Unity already (Hoping all of that's in-game).

What more do you guys see?

Woo! He's got a cane! Bartitsu confirmed! :rolleyes:

Yes I saw that the wiki says it came up at the end of the 19th century but come on, that Barton-Wright guy OBVIOUSLY stole some secret Assassin cane fighting techniques ;)

Hopefully the cane has a hidden sword underneath...

Looking forward to it but I'm a little scared, please Ubi, don't release another game full of bug and performance problems.

Lol no, it isn't. No way in hell the graphics in-game look that good. It's pure CGI.

That's what I thought when I saw the Unity teaser, which looked just as good as this and only slightly better than the final product.

Unity teaser wasn't CGI. It was, for sure, recorded on some very powerful rig and more advanced than the game, but it had artifacts which appear only in real-time renders.

Yes I know, the point I'm making is that if something as impressive as the Unity teaser can be in-game (albeit running on beefy hardware as you say) then this Victory teaser being in-game in the same manner perhaps isn't so unlikely.

That just my uneducated guess though.

Not really. They unveiled Watch Dogs when AC 3 was unvveiled and released WD two years later. I suppose they'll do the same this year. Maybe a WD teaser. I still want a Watch Dogs 2.

I suppose the game will have to sacrifice something for this level of graphics... Maybe the over-sized crowd? I don't expect 5000 people in on the streets of England....

The time period is Victorian England, so no. There is no question about this.

There were many failed assassination attempts on Victoria, so we could be involved in preventing those attacks during the events of Syndicate.

Oh yeah I forgot about that, maybe the Templars want to replace her with a more Templar friendly monarch.


So I came upon this teaser by sheer coincidence on reddit when browsing casually.

I was going to ignore it and move on with my life.

But then I noticed a cane.

Beating people to death with cane 10/10 game so I had to post.

Being real though, I'm not going to buy the game regardless. I already returned my copy of Unity. And due to the unfair price balance of the DLC for season pass owners, I skipped out on playing Chronicles China and wont bother with the rest.

I'll 200% for sure will only be watching a cutscene movie of this game and have no intentions of playing it. The lore intrigues me enough to watch it and given that Ubisoft has a new system for writing quality control now, it may be miles better than Unity's story.

that's all I have to say on the matter. good luck to the developers. I've been extremely busy (new job and academics) and have temporarily shifted to the fnaf fandom until AC franchise fully recovers in quality.

and maybe -just maybe- if the game turns out to be great in terms of gameplay (black flag level great) i'll pick it up

thats all. Tell Darbs, Esco, and Johkr I said Hi <3

cya all on release day (or if other major news comes up)

*vanishes into the dark*

Mayrice! thou live!



Why would there be a football...oh you mean soccer. :p

Soccer? what's that? some pastry?

I meant that superior sport called Association Football.


Looking forward to it but I'm a little scared, please Ubi, don't release another game full of bug and performance problems.

Of course it will, that's standard this days, it's not just Ubisoft, everybody's doing it, Unity was a particularly extreme case but buggy games later half assedly fixed with patches are the norm this days.

football is call soccer in some country's like mine Australia becuase we already have football and that something completely different(tho its better than soccer)

Most of the world calls it Football and the sport was called Football way before the "Soccer" word was invented.

I'm sure this has already been brought up, but Jacob is pretty close to Jack. Would certainly be quite a twist if you end up somehow the ripper. Or indeed framed for said murders by the Templars.

Also, the Spring Heeled Jack urban legend also fits.

Anyway, living in London myself, this should be a pretty interesting experience seeing the same streets in this period. Looking forward to it. I just hope they make sure it is finished before shipping this time. :p

After the game reveal I hope some fan jounarnalists like loomer or acess the animus guys have a interview and question them about things like the modern day.

Even with the trailer focus on historical aspect they respond to these questions,like whem they said about abstergo entretainment whem a interviewer asks on black flag announcement.

Traditionally they have always kept the modern day a mystery during the marketing campaign.

Basically because the modern day has been decreasing in quality since AC:III. Ubi knows that the best thing is not to announce something that probably is not going to be good.
That said, i hope Syndicate has a good MD.

05-08-2015, 02:07 PM
They have been doing that since AC1.

That's true... in AC1, 2 and Bro.
In recent titles (Rogue and Unity), because of how irrelevant and shallow it is, it seems that they were not announcing how the MD is gonna be because they knew that it wasn't gonna please the fans.
Just imagine that before the release of Rogue, they announced that the MD was going to be an exact copy of the one in BF, it would have been discouraging to say the least.

So... his name might not be Jacob, but Albert instead.

Or maybe his surname is Jacobs. Albert Jacobs.

05-08-2015, 03:18 PM
Jacob I like, but Albert? mehhh.

I'm still unsure whether I like the name Syndicate at all, it feels like a mouthful and a bit awkward to me. But if it will be confirmed to be that then I guess I can get used to it.. maybe.

But those are just details, I just hope the game itself will be great, has a great story and is actually finished this time when it is released.

He's a ruthless crime boss of the Rooks gang

I wish. Rooks thing is probably there just because of the Tower though

Syndicate will be some coop boyband

Rooks are people who lived in a Rookery i.e the slums in Victorian London. They contained criminals so my guess is that they are going to be connected with the Templars xD
