Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the latest Assassin’s Creed installment released by Ubisoft on the Xbox One in October 2015, is currently discounted on Amazon (via Major Nelson). You can choose between the $28.43 Standard Edition or the $59.99 Gold Edition that also includes the game's Season Pass.
If you're not familiar with the franchise, the Assassin's Creed series of video games are action-adventure games that follow the centuries-old struggle between two ancient secret societies, the Assassins and the Templars. Unlike the previous opus Assassin’s Creed Unity, which focused more on multiplayer interaction and strategy, Syndicate is a more interesting single player adventure which still features an open-world sandbox and parkour moves that made the franchise's popularity. Here is the official description of the game:
London, 1868. In the heart of the Industrial Revolution, lead your underworld organization and grow your influence to fight those who exploit the less privileged in the name of progress:
• Take Over The London Underworld - Establish London's fiercest gang and bring justice to the lawless streets.
• Devastate Your Enemies - Fight with an all-new combat system and weapons like the Cane Sword and the Assassin's Gauntlet featuring the Hidden Blade and Rope Launcher.
• Play As Twin Assassins - Play as rebellious Jacob Frye and his swift, deadly sister Evie.
