According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the game production started a little more than 2 years ago. Developer Ubisoft seems short for an experience of this scope. But thanks to the effort of 9 Ubisoft studios all across Europe, Asia, and North America that was led by a team in Quebec, the development is possible to continue 24 hours a day. 

The production of this massive game brings out so much on the tried and true formula of the eight-year-old series - introducing first playable female assassins in the main series and then impressively refining the way players get around. The game is filled with characters both fictional and historical, but what redefines this game is unequivocally the location London.

The author and historical consultant Judith Flanders verbalized that she does not want to know how carriages with horses were built. She added that she is curious to know how the coachman took its own seat in the carriage. She is a writer of books including The Victorian City: Everyday Life in Dickens' London and is intensely fascinated of Victoria London Life, which is why Ubisoft picked her to consult on the details of the city and its inhabitants for the Syndicate game.

Stuff reported that Assassins Creed gameplay comes before historical accuracy that is why historical figures such as Karl Marx, Charles Dickens, Alexander Graham Bell, and many others were spotted in the game. Its new approach to characters is what perhaps gamers would fascinate to and provides a great deal of charm and levity that was missing from the previous series. The game featured Grand Theft auto-inspired chases, wherein players can reverse a horse-drawn carriage into a light post that will explode and cascade glass down over completely unperturbed pedestrians and other unique styles.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate is coming on Oct. 23.
