Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Evie is even more violent than Jacob

She's been noticeable in her distinct absence - *gives Ubisoft stern glare* - but Assassin's Creed Syndicate (opens in new tab)'s Evie Frye got her own trailer at the Sony's E3 conference (opens in new tab) last night and it turns out she's even more violent than her twin brother. The elder of the pair, Evie is armed with a sword cane similar to Jacob's, throwing knives and an attitude to human life that I probably shouldn't be applauding.

In the trailer above, you can watch our new heroine stab a man in the neck before throwing him into an industrial fire (without saying "you're toast"), leave an assailant to get flattened by a concrete block and then embed her cane in a man's neck before plunging a knife into his forehead. It's all a pleasantly gory ensemble.

Sony announced a series of exclusive Syndicate missions only available on PS4. The Dreadful Crimes addition includes ten side missions where Jacob and Evie are investigating a series of murders, kidnappings and other villainous Victorian crimes. Presumably these will be very similar to Unity's Murder Mysteries and once again be ironic as a pair of murderers do detective work of their own.
