It’s All About the Fisticuffs in the Just Announced Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Man oh man, we finally get to see what the next Assassin Creed game looks like. While we did get a few leaks here and there, which made me more excited, we are introduced to the new setting. The game takes place is Victorian London. Right smack dab in the middle of the steam age. While I was hoping for steam punk AC,  We still got the next best thing.
