Join the Rooks in this Assassin's Creed Syndicate motion comic

It wouldn't be 19th century action without a train heist, and this new Assassin's Creed Syndicate motion comic is happy to oblige. The new short, which Ubisoft debuted today at the San Diego Comic-Con, sets up the festering class struggle which drives Jacob Frye and his Rooks to seek justice against a certain greedy rail baron (as if there's any other kind).

The Syndicate was directed by F. Gary Gray, best known as the director of Law Abiding Citizen and Friday and illustrated by prolific comics artist Pop Mhan. Check out the behind-the-scenes video to see how they came together to create the four-minute animated short.
