Ubisoft unveiled two trailers for its upcoming entry in the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, at its E3 2015 press conference held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
The game debuted for the first time one month ago and is to be set in London during the Industrial Revolution. Following two twins, Jacob and Evie Frye, Assassin's Creed Syndicate will explore the tension and ultimate divide between the rich and poor during the 18th century.
