Ubisoft has announced it is giving away two free in-game costumes for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November.
The costumes are for protagonists Evie and Jacob Frye, with the former receiving a steampunk-themed ‘Dr. Daniels Garments,’ while her brother gets to try on ‘The Creatures Rag’ outfit inspired by Mary Shelley. The free clobber will be made available for download on November 3 and November 17 for Evie and Jacob, respectively.
“Our character design team had a lot of fun creating these more fantastical outfits, and we’re happy to share them with everyone completely free…We want to thank all of our fans for your passion and support and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on the game on October 23," commented Mar-Alexis Cote, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s Creative Director.
You can have a gander at both outfits below.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is due out later this week on PS4, PC and Xbox One. The game takes place in Victorian London in the year 1868, and focuses on siblings Jacob and Evie Frye as they battle the Templar order in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Curiously, the game eschews the multiplayer elements of previous Assassin’s Creed titles, which have been included since 2010’s Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
New to the table in Syndicate includes the ability to switch between two characters at any point in the game. The Frye siblings each have their own special attributes; Jacob is more at home in close-quarters brawling, while Evie prefers a more stealthy approach and relies on her wit and intelligence to see her through. Syndicate also introduces a rope launcher to facilitate rooftop navigation, while weapons include a revolver, brass knuckles and a cane sword.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will include additional content in the form of the Jack the Ripper DLC, something which PSU felt a little uneasy about—so much so that we wrote an opinion piece about it discussing our reservations. Ubisoft has also revealed that the stealth-action title will feature microtransactions for those who wish to take advantage of them.
