Ubisoft unveils bonus Assassin's Creed Syndicate missions as pre-order sweetener


Join Dickens and Darwin and fight crime

Ubisoft has revealed bonus Assassin’s Creed Syndicate missions will be available for those who pre-order the game.

The missions star everyone’s favourite crime-solving duo, novelist Dickens and the Theory of Evolution mastermind Darwin, as they unite to save the “good people of London” from an evil conspiracy involving toxic goo. Or something.

As yet, it’s unclear if the missions – or even the characters – are available in any form in the game outside of the pre-order bonus, but I’ve reached out to our pals at Ubisoft and will let you know just as soon as they get back to me.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 23, 2015.

If you could’ve picked any Victorian-esque character to appear in Syndicate, who would you have chosen? (I so would’ve stuck Dick Van Dyke in there somewhere).
