4 Facts About Assassins Creed Syndicate

With one month away for Abstergo Entertainments release of Assassins Creed Syndicate, we thought we would wet your appetite with a few facts.

1: For the first time ever you can play as two Assassins – Jacob and Evie Frye.

2: When Jacob and Evie arrive in London, they are seeing everything for the very first time right alongside the player. Together you and the character must learn all of its secrets of London together, as they learn, you learn.

3: Much of the games activities and side quests will revolve around winning over the various gangs in London because of the importance the lack of control the Templars have over the streets and its various gangs.

4: “Gone are the good old days when you could walk down the streets with a sword at your side and no one would bat an eye. Concealment is now key”.

“Sketches found in back of school book” by Caitlin makes “Honorary Work” status

Being over a year since the Creative Submissions project was initiated, we had a nice small amount of submissions. After going through our submissions today, we decided that one of these submissions takes the cake.

Caitlin has been a supporter of this website for over 2 years, ever since the 21st of October of 2012. She excelled in her creativity and was recruited into Epsilon Team. Caitlin’s artistic skills as well as creative skills have been noticed by us and by many others as well. We hope to continue to see her shine within Abstergo and within our world.

Instantaneous Learning

Abstergo strives to be the world leader in medical and technological research and nothing exemplifies that more than our work in brain science. Abstergo is slowly recreating the human brain piece by piece leading to astounding discovers like the animus. One application of the animus is using the system to learn a skill or behavior. This side effect, dubbed the bleeding effect, is being translated into a system for instantaneous learning. Imagine downloading a program on physics in to an animus like system and in few days or hours being a master of that physics program. This technology would completely change the way we learn new information and the way we teach it. While this information system is still in the concept, Abstergo feel confident that on one else will be able to bring you technology like this and are excited to share our ideas with you.


As most of you have already heard, Abstergo Entertainment’s new game Syndicate, set to be released on October 23, takes you through the streets of Victorian London. The Victorian era has captured the imaginations of thousands of people whether it’s through the books of Charles Dickins or movies like Alice in Wonderland. We hope our new game will capture the spirt of the Victorian era while keeping to its industrials roots. Our team works hard to make sure that the gaming experience is as real which means hours of research, visits to historical sites all across England and even wearing period clothing to get the flow of fabric and movement in them just right. This story shows the harsher side to the glamour’s Victorian London by fallowing a street gang preying on wealthy. Why a street gang? One reason is to help tell the tale of gritty industrial England’s story better than a wealthy factory owner. It gives character to a harsh reality much like The Jungle written by Upton Sinclair did or Death in the Haymarket by James Green. Remember what may seem good may actually be evil and what may seem evil may actually be good.

E3 Recap

Hello everyone, if you missed us at E3 here is a recap of our talk and what we had on display. We are currently working with our partner Google to develop a way for mobile technology to understand space and motion using 3 steps called project Tango. Motion tracking gives the device the ability to understand its position and orientation using custom sensors. Depth sensors allow the device to understand the shape of the space around the device letting the virtual world and real world interact. Area Learning uses visual cues to help the device recognize the world around them, “They can self-correct errors in motion tracking and relocalize in areas they’ve seen before.”(Google) We hope to use this technology in forensics, archaeology, medicine and subterranean real-time mapping.

We also are in the process of creating a way to bring holograms in to everyday use, no longer just the stuff of science fiction. Imagine having a holographic pet or immersing yourself in the Animus anywhere at any time. Holograms can be used for a wide range of things from building complex models to holographic travel. Abstergo Industries and Abstergo Entertainment are building a device that skips over the glasses and goes straight for the eyes by building contact lenses that use holographic technology. We are still in the testing phase and hope to have a prototype ready for public display soon.
