'Assassin's Creed Syndicate' Weekend Recap: What Are Latest Updates Revealed?

By Alex Cruz

"Assassin's Creed Syndicate" will be released in less than two weeks, and what we're going to do is take a closer look at the latest news and updates that are being released since the beginning of the week.

On Oct. 5, "Assassin's Creed Syndicate" tied with "Fallout 4" at the second spot in a poll survey conducted by Nielsen Game Rank for the most anticipated multiplatform game to come out during the holiday of 2015. Ubisoft and Bethesda's games both got 95 percent, while Activision's "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" conquered the No. 1 spot with 98 percent.

On Oct. 6, Ubiblog gave us an idea of how important the Rooks are in "Assassin's Creed Syndicate" gameplay. In order to fulfil his mission, Jacob Frye will be needing them for backup — they will serve as extra blades in a fight, watch your back around the city and distractions if you want to move without being noticed.

The blog also confirmed that you would be able to command five Rooks at a time, and they would follow orders from Evie, Jacob's twin. If you wanted your Rooks to be tougher, you need to upgrade your Rook Training skills.

In order to upgrade the Rooks, the blog suggests that player should go to Gang Upgrades, which are divided into three categories. The Insider skill for intimidation and getting extra goodies, the Ringleader to sabotage the Blighters and Templars and for Rook enhancement and the Swindler, which will enable you to purchase items at a discounted rate and make more money.

On Oct. 8, a new "Assassin's Creed Syndicate" TV trailer was uploaded by Eurogamer Portugal on YouTube. The clip started off with a British notable being chased by what looked like hundreds of blades.

He ran towards the street alley, and came across a boy selling newspapers. The mayhem — whether it was a dream or a vision — disappeared, and the same man found himself sitting comfortably on the carriage, waiting for his impending death in the hands of the Assassin and his Rooks.

The player's job in the "Assassin's Creed Syndicate" is to find a way to assert control over territories despite the pressure coming from wealthy people, according to Design & Trend.
