1862, and with London in the grip of the Industrial Revolution, the world’s first underground railway is under construction. When a body is discovered at the dig, it sparks the beginning of the latest deadly chapter in the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars.
Deep undercover is an Assassin with dark secrets and a mission to defeat the Templar stranglehold on the nation’s capital.
Soon the Brotherhood will know him as Henry Green, mentor to Jacob and Evie Frye. For now, he is simply The Ghost.
Two of Jacob’s signature weapon replicas will be available in October 2015.
The first one is a life-size replica of the Assassin’s legendary gauntlet with hidden blade, featuring a functional hidden blade and supplemented by rope launcher and dart gun details.
The second one is a life-size replica of the cane sword, the Assassin’s newest weapon, featuring a fully detailed sword and a button triggered spring-loaded scythe blade.
Finally, UbiCollectibles presents two highly detailed Assassin’s Creed figurines to be available in the UK in October 2015.
