♪ (old-school video game music) ♪ – “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.” – I’ve heard of it, but that’s it. I literally know nothing. – Assassin’s Creed!!!
(excited gasp) I started playing it with my dad–
like the Brotherhood game, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood,
that was like– oh my god. – I played a little Black Flag,
and the concept, as far as I know, is really interesting. You go into these
historical periods of time. – Assassin’s Creed is the new Call of Duty. There’s just another one, another one. They don’t take the time
to make them decent. – I’ve played every single one besides,
I think, the first one. I have ’em all.
This game is life to me! (excitedly) Oh-ho-ho, yeah! Let’s play. – “Welcome, assassin.”
(in game: screen blips) – (Bishop) Hello, initiate. Recently, Abstergo Historical Research
began several new projects… – “…in London.” – Her makeup is better than mine.
– (Bishop) We both know that when Abstergo makes big moves, the Templars are up to something. – The Templars, AKA bad guys.
– (Bishop) We think they’re hot on the trail of a new Piece of Eden. You’ll be searching for the Piece of Eden through the lives of Jacob and Evie Frye, twin assassins who operated
in Victorian London. – Twin assassins?
– (Bishop) Your first set of genetic memories are downloaded.
– It sounds interesting, but it’s all going right over here. (quill scratches parchment)
– (writer) Brother George. – Is this a movie? – (writer) It is as I feared.
– These graphics are, like, insane. – (writer) London has fallen. The Templars consolidate their power. – Ooh, that guy looks fierce.
Look at his moustache. – (writer) …so thorough,
one might think Reginald Birch himself had returned. – Oh, moustache on fleek. – (writer) His name is Crawford Starrick… – Crawford Starrick.
– …and he intends to rule the world. Whosoever controls London…
controls the world. – Take down the Queen. – Oh, 1868. – (hooded man) The iron ships from here. The Templar running things
is Rupert Ferris, and our target one. – Oh, that must be the twins. – (hooded man)
Target two is Sir David Brewster, who’s got his hands
on a bauble that could ruin us in this wretched war. – (Jacob) I’ve got all I need. – Ay, he’s got the thingies! – (Jacob) I’ll extend
your regards to Ferris. (train whistles)
– (Evie) Chat later, George. We’ve a train to catch. ♪ (lively classical music) ♪
– (George) Jacob! Evie! – I’m loving this already. – (George) May the Creed
guide you, you vagrants! – I feel like I’m not going
to be able to understand what they’re saying
because of their accents. (cockney accent) [Inaudible]. (normally) All right, yeah. – (in game: screaming in pain)
– (gasps) That’s so bad. – “Industrialist Rupert Ferris.” – Him. I have to kill him. Let’s go. – (Rupert Ferris)
He’s disrupting the other workers! Shut his trap and get the machine fixed! – It’s gonna be fun killing him. – (Ferris) And send me
some laudanum for my head. – (mockingly) “Send me
some laudanum for my head.” – (Jacob, menacingly) Coming right up.
– He’s an [bleep]. (wheels churn)
– Let’s play. Woo! – Am I playing now? Okay. – “Reach Ferris.” – “Hold R2 to free run.” Can I–? Oh.
Where am I going? – (tittering) Am I doing it?
I don’t know! – Okay, I press X.
Yeah, all right. – This’ll be fun. Oh, it runs so smooth. – (Jacob) Locked.
– Okay, that was easy. – (worker #1) What
do you think you’re doing? – (worker #2) Stop now,
before there’s trouble! – (worker) No one goes in or out…
‘less there’s a problem. – Of course. – (Jacob) I halt the machines,
that door opens and I have my route to Ferris. – I have to sabotage the machines. I have to free run! Up, up, up, up, up. Yes! Yes, fly! Yes! (in game: indistinct conversation) (Jacob grunts) – Come on. Sabotage. – Circle. (valve squeaks) (machines groan) – (Jacob) Always works on the fly.
– Oh, it makes the machine stop. – None of these people
care that I’m doing this? I obviously don’t work here. – Okay. This is a really cool game. – I think this is the last one. – I’m surprised nobody’s stopping me.
(valve squeaks) There’s so many people
here to see what I’m doing. – They’re gonna be like,
“What’s going on in here?” – (thug #1, angrily) Which one
of you is responsible?! – How do I kill him? – It says, “Air assasinate is Square,”
and I have to assassinate this– Oh goddamn it! (hissing through teeth)
– (worker) Who are you? – Did I kill him? – (thug #1, angrily) Which one
of you is responsible?! – I am.
(thug #1 groans) (stabbing) (thug #1 groans)
– OOOOH, that was so good! – (thug #2) Who are you?
– Gotta run, gotta run. G-T-G. – Wait, okay, yeah. Okay, wait, wait.
Oh my god. Attack, attack. (imitates punching noises)
(blows land) – Oh dang, he has his fist. Oh! – Go, go, go, go. – (thug groans)
– Yes! Kill him! ♪ (lively classical music) ♪
– “Counter when attacked.” Oh, I do remember
this from the other game. There was slow-mo stuff
and it was actually really cool. – Kill.
(thug groans) (stabbing)
– Hey, yeah, that’s right! That’s right. Yeah.
(thug screams in pain) Okay, anyone else?
Who else? Huh? – I kill you.
(stabbing) Bye bye. (stabbing)
(thug groans) Okay, that was a little disappointing. It was the same assassination every time. ♪ (tense music) ♪ (chain rattles)
– I’m ready to kill this guy. – More bad guys. – “Sneaking: X makes you harder to detect and allows you to move faster.” – “From behind cover, hold L2 to aim and then press R2 to throw knives.” – Oh, hold L2. (knive clinks) – I’m just gonna smack
you right in the face with this. Okay? Can you die? (thug yelps)
There we go. Bye bye. – I’m really scared right now. Oh [bleep]! – Where am I supposed to go again? – Okay. Oh, this way. (groans) – I gotta get up there. – Yeah! – (worker) Mr. Ferris, sir, the– Uh, the lad in the factory
should be taken to be bandaged by the apothecary. – (Ferris) Fine. But dock his wages. – Oh, this is gonna be fun. And there’s gonna be
a lot more fun when I kill him. – (Jacob) Shall we arrive at a final price–
– Or when he’s dead. – All right, I’m gonna climb up there
and then get over there. Yep, a good plan. – I mean, it’s kind of [bleep]
he’s docking his wages when he got injured on his facility. – He’s like Spiderman, but not really. – Jump on that. I can’t jump on that? It’s not letting– oh, never mind.
Now it’s letting me. Entry points, cool. – “Entry points show different approaches
to reach your target.” – There’s one right there,
one right there in the window, and one over there. Oh, it’s not the window. (stabbing)
(thug groans) – (Ferris) Mr. Starrick, please, Mr. Stone. (in game: indistinct yelling)
– (Ferris) Take this down: “Dear sir, I am pleased to inform you–”
– (thug) Grab him! – Entry point. – I can enter from the ceiling? All right. I’m down for that. – And there’s one– oh!
There’s one all the way up there. – All right. Where is he?
He’s right under me. – Free run, yes, free run. Am I in the room now?
– (Ferris) …for many a year to come. – Oh, is he right there? – (Ferris) Do let me know–
– Okay, those dudes are right there. So let’s just go like that. (Ferris groans)
– Have I…? – Am I– is he targeted? I’m scared I’m gonna drop down there
and nothing’s gonna happen. (Ferris groans)
(stabbing) – Or that’ll happen. – He’s dead.
(Ferris groans) (stabbing)
– Woo! – Okay, let’s assassinate this bitch NOW! (Ferris groans)
(stabbing) – Did I do it? Yes! Yes, I got you, Rupert. – (Jacob) It is done. – (Ferris) Oh?
What did you accomplish, boy? – (scoffs) He’s dead and he’s still rude? – (Ferris) A bolt loosened
in Starrick’s machine, a large bolt… but not enough. – I have to escape on the train. – Oh, look at her.
The secretary is like, “Ugh, thank god!” You finally killed that bitch.
Somebody had to do it.” – Get over there. You know what?
I don’t even care at this point. I’m not even gonna try and be sneaky. – (thug #1) The assassin! Kill him!
– (thug #2) After ‘im! – Okay. (train whistles)
– (Jacob) Impeccable timing. – Ooh! Okay, all right, come on. No, jump! (annoyed) Seriously?
Get on the train. Okay. – (thug) The assassin! Kill him! – And I’m out. – (thug) There! The assassin!
(train whistles) – I can’t see him. I can’t see him. (punches land) Oh, I saw a train go by
and I didn’t use it. Oh, use Circle.
Oh, it tells me what I have to do. Nice! (punches land) (thug yelps in panic)
– Bye bye. – Oh my gosh, this is so intense. Why aren’t they dying?!
Oh, he’s blocking himself. – Good, gotta go. Goodbye. Gotta go, gotta go,
gotta blast, gotta blast. (thug and Jacob groan) – Shut up. You get off my train. Will I fall off the train?
I’m really scared of falling off the train. (stabbing)
– Yes. Yes! Oh, I did it. I did it! Yay! – I’m not going to you. Nice, I didn’t have to fight him. (hoofbeats)
– (rider) Ya! – (Jacob) Lost your bottle, boys? – Okay, so where are we going now, detour? (hoofbeats)
(man grunts) – Oh– oh no!
(conductor gasps) ♪ (dramatic music) ♪ – He just jumps out. – I better start free running. (laughs) ♪ (dramatic music) ♪
– Yeah, jump. Jump, jump, jump, jump. I’m ready. Are you ready?
Jump, come on. – Oh [bleep]. (anxious squeal) – Oh my god, he’s not gonna make it. – (Jacob) Well, we seem to have
made an unscheduled stop. – Really? Okay,
that just ruined EVERYTHING. (loud crash) – And he just stands there
while that falls next to him and he’s like, “Oh [bleep]!” – (Jacob) Maybe next time I’ll walk. – (giggles) More jokes in the face of death! Oh, he’s so sassy. – And I won. – I really like it. – It was all right.
I’d get bored after a while just because Assassin’s Creed’s repetitive. – This game… oh my gosh.
This game is life. – Playing it once through,
that was exhilarating. – Thanks for watching us play
