With 91 million units sold worldwide, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise is established as one of the best-selling game series ever. Recognized for having some of the richest, most-engrossing art and storytelling in the industry, Assassin’s Creed transcends video games, branching into other entertainment experiences including comic books, novels, short films and an impressive merchandise line-up.
The recently announced Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes players into the underbelly of Victorian London at a time when the Industrial Revolution is in full swing. The depth and attention to detail in the artwork brings London to life around you. This volume contains hundreds of never-before-seen concept arts, including sketches, final paintings, 3D renders and texture studies, all sitting alongside insightful and comprehensive commentary from the artists and developers.
Highlights in the book include a close look at the London Boroughs, each realized in extraordinary detail, staying true to both the historical roots of the area and giving each their own visual identity and population. Intricately rendered buildings tower over slums and iconic thoroughfares while Jacob Frye, our newest Assassin, fights for control of the gangs roaming the streets of London.
