Well, there’s no doubt that the cinematic side of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate looks really compelling. A new TV spot features some absolutely crazy concepts in motion for the upcoming open world assassination title.

This game is all about bringing down the suppressors of London’s society while struggling with gang conflict and controlling territory. It’s not that offbeat of an idea for the Assassin’s Creed title. Our heroes regularly fill the role of the underdog against the Templar and their rich positions.

I’m hoping that the grit and grey of London during this era works well for the title. I love color in my games, and there’s nothing quite like a rich and vivid sunset regardless of the genre. This game looks very, very grey. It fits the mood, absolutely, I’m just hoping that it doesn’t distract from the experience.

We’ll see. Heck, I just want it to work after Unity last year.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will launch for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Oct. 23, 2015.
