The new Assassin's Creed game has been released by Ubisoft at last, and it looks set to be the best yet.

Ubisoft has shared lots of detail about the game, so we've gathered together everything you need to know including its release date and gameplay features, as well as the very first trailer and gameplay videos.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate release date: When is the next Assassin's Creed coming out?

Following reports of a December 2015 release, Assassin's Creed fans will be pleased to hear that the game is in fact coming out worldwide on 23 October for PS4 and Xbox One (that's today!), and on 19 November for PC.

The game was first confirmed by Ubisoft back in December 2014 following the leak of some convincing images and information about a future Assassin's Creed game.

"It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked," Ubisoft told PC Gamer following the leak last year, which included several screenshots from a gameplay footage video obtained by Kotaku. "And, while we certainly welcome anticipation for all of our upcoming titles, we're disappointed for our fans, and our development team, that this conceptual asset is now public. The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we're excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date."

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate gameplay

We're quite excited about this next Assassin's Creed game, as it'll feature two brand-new assassins called Jacob and Evie Frye (they're twins - and yes, you'll be able to play as a woman! See the Evie and Jacob Gamescom trailer in the video section above) and will be set in London in the Victorian era, 1868 to be precise. Previously, we've travelled back to 15th Century Italy, Colonial Boston and New York, the Caribbean and most recently in Assassin's Creed: Unity, Paris during the French Revolution.

19th Century London is an era that many fans have been hoping Assassin's Creed would venture to, so the news has been received very positively so far. Plus, the London that Ubisoft has created is enormous - 30 percent bigger than Assassin's Creed: Unity's Paris according to Ubisoft. Ubisoft has created City of London, Westminster, Southwark, Whitechapel, the Thames and the Strand.

Ubisoft has described Jacob as a "hot headed, brash and rebellious" character, while his twin sister Evie is a "relentless assassin" and is also a "master of stealth."

You'll be able to switch freely between Evie and Jacob in the open world game, but during story missions you may have to stick to one or the other.

You'll also be able to commandeer a horse and carriage to help you get around quicker, and the Assassin's Gauntlet comes fitted with a rope launcher to make getting to the top of buildings faster.

The new game is being developed primarily in the Ubisoft Quebec studio, reports suggest, which is unusual as all of the previous games in the series were made by the Montreal-based team, so it'll be interesting to see how the change in leadership affects the final product.
