When Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was announced earlier this year, many people were pleasantly surprised. Not only was the game set in Victorian London, a setting that fans have been asking for for quite some time, but it also featured a playable female protagonist which is a first for a main Assassin’s Creed game. Plus, given that Assassin’s Creed Unity caused controversy with its lack of playable female characters, the decision to let players run around London as either Jacob Frye or his twin sister Evie was considered a huge win.
However, Ubisoft didn’t win everyone over with their reveal of Evie as she seemed to take a backseat to her brother. Not only was she not featured much in the reveal trailer, but the special editions of the game featured no Evie-related merchandise and one report suggested that Evie would only be playable in around 25% of the game’s main campaign. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case at last night as at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference, Evie was front and centre in her very own Assassin’s Creed Syndicate trailer.
