Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a stealth game set in Victorian London. Players assume the role of Jacob and Evie Frye, who must stop the Templars getting hold of a shroud that could give them control over London. Along the way, they meet various historical figures including Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin and Alexander Graham Bell.
VIOLENCE: Jacob and Evie use weapons including daggers, canes and guns to fight enemy Templars and policemen, resulting in blood spurts, broken bones and realistic sound effects. Sometimes, blood pools around a defeated enemy’s body. Players can also “stealth kill” Templars and policemen, killing them swiftly. The objective of some missions is to assassinate a villain, but these assassinations not make up most of the violence in the game.
In one cutscene, an evil doctor operates on a patient. He removes an operating tool from the patient’s head, causing blood to spurt out onto the operating table. The patient dies and the doctor says a vital organ was damaged.
LANGUAGE: The Database, a collection of written files on each character, contains some strong language including f**k and motherf**ker. During gameplay, players are able to disturb civilians, occasionally causing them to exclaim swear words such as f**ker and s**t.
