    The game is set in London in 1868, and features a new assassin, Jacob Frye, and his sister Evie in street gangs and slums, pitted against the city's elite. New inventions like the telegraph and electricity lead the way to the Industrial Revolution, while the working class struggles under the wealthy elite. Gang leader/assassin Jacob is having none of it. Watch the official reveal trailer:

    Handsome bugger, isn't he?



    The weapons revealed in Jacob's arsenal include the Kukri (a modern assassin can't just wear a sword on his hip!), revolver, brass knuckles (for "when a punch to the face just isn't enough"), throwing knives, and hallucinogenic darts to turn enemies against one another.

    In addition to the usual stabbing and punching, you can also drop stuff on foes

    Much of the game seems to involve liberating slums and claiming them for your own gang in wars with rival gang leaders. The larger plot involves freeing the city from the greedy upper class. As Jacob puts it, "the working class sleepwalks through life unaware of the machine that drives them. Let's wake them up then, shall we?"
