Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place in an Early Victorian setting of the 1868 era. The franchise is notorious for playing fast and loose with history and the gamers are totally fine with it. There are very few who don’t want to hang out with Leonardo Da Vinci in Renaissance Italy, even though we admit it isn’t entirely accurate.
Meantime, gamers are wondering as to what marks they will leave in the iconic English history era as protagonist Evie Frye and Jacob. Let us take a look at some of the most exciting events that we might witness in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
In case of Charles Dickens, it has already been established that he will be portrayed in the game. However, we aren’t sure as to what extent will that be. In the history, Dickens was critical of the Freemasons, which is the group that Templars eventually evolved into. In his book, Great Expectations, he expressed his fondness for the Freemasons.
Meanwhile, Charles Darwin has a similar background as that of Dickens. His grandfather was a confirmed member of the Freemasons but Darwin himself wasn’t a part of the group. However, Darwin’s son is a confirmed member and this leads to a potentially fascinating storyline.
The Tower of London is iconic location and gamers are simply waiting to witness it in person, virtually of course. In the 1860s, heavy guns were placed in the Tower in order to protect Britain from an invasion by the French. However, in case you had infinite wealth at your disposal and feared an attack from an army of shadows equipped wrist blades, heavy artillery would definitely ease your mind.
Let’s talk about the royalty as that’s what England was all about. Edward was the oldest son of Queen Victoria and eventually the King of England. Edward enjoyed a nice trip around the world prior to this event.
During his visits abroad, Queen Victoria ordered him to visit the Middle East as a diplomat. He also stopped in Jerusalem, Egypt, Damascus and Constantinople. He could have a wonderful tie-in with the story of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and it would be shame and a shock if he isn’t featured.
Meanwhile, the railway accident which killed 10 people and injured more than 50 others in 1865 could probably be enacted in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Reports regarding the Staplehurst Train Accident indicate that the work was being done on a bridge spanning a river and the train conductor wasn’t properly notified.
