The next Assassin’s Creed, called ‘Syndicate’ is rumoured to feature a playable female assassin protagonist.
As revealed in leaked documents to the website, Kotaku, Syndicate will have not one, but two main playable characters in the campaign: Jacob and Evie - (she's featured above) The two are connected as siblings, which should make for interesting interactions in the story, if this information is to be believed.
This is not the first game in the Assassin's Creed series to feature a playable woman. Both Assassin's Creed: Liberation & the recently-released Assassin's Creed: Chronicles - China started the trend.
We hope these rumours are true and lucky for us and you as well, we won't have to wait long. A full reveal of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is set to premiere to the world later today... stay tuned.
